How to filter/search contacts by tag in Odoo 8?

on 7/21/15, 9:29 AM 1,620 views

In OpenERP 7 I can go to Sales > Organizer > Contacts > Advanced Search and filter contacts by tags, i.e. "Tags" is in the dropdown list. In Odoo 8 (version 8.0-20150715) I cannot find "Tags" in the dropdown list. What am I doing wrong?

Interesting: One can still search for tags in the search bar, which seems to be a "contains" filter. Not sure how to search a tag with "does not contain" or "is" etc.

I have "Tags" in the advanced search for res.partner model in Odoo 8... Maybe you should check again ?

Hi David, I don't find "Tags" in the dropdown list. There are 66 values, from "Active" over "TIN" and "Tasks" to "Website", but not "Tags". Maybe I have to configure something? TIA!

OK, I checked `res.partner` now: In both OpenERP 7 and Odoo 8, `category_id`/`Tags` is "Not Searchable". But in OpenERP I can run advanced filters on tags, in Odoo 8 not. There must be another knob to turn.
