    Where to use it:

    The content that the Watch A Tag widget searches through is based upon the location in which the widget is placed. Below are more details of how far the WAT widget searches into content, based upon the location:

    • Root Page (Homepage): Watch A Tag widget will search all content spaces/subspaces/groups/etc for the tag specified in the widgets settings.
    • Your View: If the widget is placed in the Your View tab, it will search all content for the specified tag similar to how placing it in the Root Page would search.
    • Space: If placed in a space, Watch A Tag will only search content within that particular space, not above it or into subspaces.
    • Sub-Space: Works the same way as Space. Will only search content within itself.
    • Group: Placed in a Group, the widget will search content for the specified tag only within the group itself.
