Tagging is your first step in performance analysis of your games and trainings. By tagging a recording, you create time-stamped labels of events that are customisable to your requirements. Use these tags to create clips for presentations, clip collections or simply to navigate through a recording in a more streamlined fashion.

    • Successful tackle

  • A phase:

    • Build up play

2. Types of Tags

Within Spiideo Perform, we have a number of different tag types that allow you to tag your recordings in a more unique and specific way.


a. Duration Tags

A duration tag is a Start-and-Stop style tag that allows you to tag a very specific timeframe of a recording. Perhaps you want to tag 'Build up play' before a goal, the amount of time this takes is different from one situation to another. Therefore, you can use a Duration Tag, to start your tagging time and stop your tagging time when you wish.

To Create:

To set your tag as a Duration Tag, click here when creating/editing the tag:



b. Two-level Tags

Two-level tags allow you to be more descriptive in your tagging, by applying a second tag to your first tag. Examples of this could be:

  • First tag: Pass, shot, tackle, goal, 3-pointer, block

  • Second tag: Player 3, Number 8, Jack Stephens, Defender, Attacker,

To Create:

Select one of the options shown below to specify a tag as either:

  • Used as both First and Second level

  • Only First-level

  • Only Second-level
