    I did see that article, which did not answer my question, which is why I posted it.

     

    Again, how do I edit the tag name once it has been created, for example, change "Minutes" to "Minutes Admin Meetings" without creating a whole new tag, moving everything to that, and then have original continue to pop up as a choice when I begin to type?

    Hi Barry, 

    Thanks for clarifying on this.

    Unfortunately, we don't currently offer the feature you asked about. 

    If this is something you would like to be able to do, I would highly recommend submitting this feature request at pulse.box.com! Our product managers review these requests and take them into consideration for future product development.

    Best,

    I had this same question. I solved it by filtering on the tag I wanted to change, then highlighting all of the resulting files (highlight the first, then scroll to the bottom and shift + click the bottom file), then click the Tags icon at the top right of the screen (adjacent to the 3 dots icon). A box pops up saying

    "Add or Edit Tags

    You are editing the common tags for 23 items. Users that are collaborated to these items will be able to see the tags."

    Then I added the new tag and deleted the old tag. It takes a while for the system to update, but this solution worked for me.
