Tags are only visible to Canny admins. Any given Post can also have multiple Tags applied to it. Filtering by Tag lets you quickly group Posts together. Learn more


Canny lets you assign individual owners to your Posts. Any Canny admin can be set as the "Owner" of a given Post. This ensures everyone's role is clear and defines accountability. Learn more
