Tags for requirement types

I was under the impression that the tags associated with requirement types had to be unique, but some of my users have created a couple of requirement types that have the same tag.  The majority of our tags are unique.  Do most people use the same tags for requirement types or are they mostly unique?  And can anyone think of any issues that might come up when multiple requirement types use the same tag?  Thanks...

RE: Tags for requirement types

Hi Brian,

As you have found your assumption is incorrect. Requirement Type Tags are just a way of easily identifying the category (Type) of requirement. The Requirement ID is however unique for the server. Most users would typically use unique tags, having duplicate tags has no impact on Caliber but could be confusing for your users. Having said that, I have used a "USER" for the following requirement types , Use Cases, User Stories and User Requirements on the same installation. I must state that these types where never used together on the same project !!!!

As long as everyone understand what is meant by a particular Tag then no problem.

Hope that helps.
