What is the difference between Issuer Tags and Issuer Categories?

Issuer “Categories” help you, as a credential issuer, organize your overall set of available badges, and they help illustrate how your available credentials relate to certain core topics, groupings or themes. 


Tags” are applied at the time you issue a badge, providing additional information, keywords, or skill data specific to the person or context at the moment a badge is being issued.


For convenience, when issuing a badge, your Issuer Categories are automatically imported in as Tags. (You can choose to remove them before issuing the badge.)
