In this article, we will show you how to configure and use the Gravity Forms "Entry Tags" field.

The “Entry Tags” field is for adding tags to regular form submissions (entries). The tags added using this field are not related to the tags associated with WordPress posts. The Entry Tags field is not the same as the "Tags" field found under "Post Fields", which are for adding tags to WordPress Posts.

Entry Tags can be found under Advanced Fields in the Gravity Forms form editor.

In the form editor, you can find "Entry Tags" under "Advanced Fields". To add it to your form, simply drag and drop it into place. Now you can open the field settings to configure the field choices.
