Can someone help me understand symbol "Tags" and "ID's".  The user guide is lacking information on both of these subjects.


What I would like to do is the following:


Once I insert my symbol (ex: Kohler Tub), I would like softlist to automatically capture my "Kohler Tub/Shower" fixture costs, as well as the cost of the mixing valve, etc. In the past, I would simply edit my fixture, go into softlist , add a companion material and all would calculate. Is there a way through tags and ID's to link these costs to specific symbols.


Once I create the new cost item "(ex: mixing valve), I would like to be able to associate this valve with another different fixture that requires the same valve without having to recreate an additional identical mixing valve formula. I believe this is where "Tags" or "IDs" may be helpful. I don't quite understand the how each of these options actually work and any insight on how I might benefit from these tools would be much appreciated.
