Move your cursor over the value of the Sort order column in the row of the respective tag. Click on the value or the appeared pencil icon, enter a number and press Enter or click outside the input field to save the new value. The tags will be shown in the configurator according to the sort number in the tag.

You can hide a tag by navigating to the tag's details page. Click on the Hidden checkbox in the Status section on the left and then click Save. In the Tags overview, you can filter by the hidden tags in the filter section.

Every tag can have parent tags that define the position of the tag inside the Tag tree. To add a tag to another tag click on the plus icon in the section Parent tags and you will see all the possible parents, then select the parent you want to add and then click Save. After saving the Tag tree will be updated with the new changes. You can assign multiple parents at the same time for each tag.
