You can create custom tags for your customers to organize and segment your customers into lists. For example if you have customers who you do HVAC work for, customers you do Handyman work for and customers you do Roofing work for, you could create HVAC, Handyman and Roofing tags, and apply them to your customers.
This would allow you to quickly see all of your HVAC customers in a list for example, by selecting the HVAC tag.

You can type in a custom tag to add a new tag into the system.

Once you have tagged the customer appropriately, click 'Save'.
