I'm redesigning UI and features for tagging in a mobile app. The current implementation doesn't provide a way for users to directly edit or delete their existing tags.
Currently, tags that are not being used disappear from the tag list-view / cloud, which seems to be working. But this doesn't allow editing tags. (Editing tags is desirable, because the data we're collecting will be used longitudinally for data analysis, so helps to not break the data.)
Should there be a separate "tag management" area for editing tags? Can this be handled in within the tag-creation area?
The three thoughts I'm exploring are:
- pop-up to edit a tag
- separate area to manage tags (in 'settings')
Or am I setting myself up for trouble in a way I'm not foreseeing, and this is really the best option:
- don't allow editing, only deleting
