Field Descriptions:

Attribute Tag

The store tag name. The tag name distinguishes a given attribute from other attributes created by the user or attributes available in the system by default. The tag name must be entered without any blank spaces. The following letters and digits are allowed: 0-9, A-Z, a-z, -, and _. For instance, if you create an attribute describing the features of a TV set, you may use TVSetFeatures (no blank spaces) as its name.

Attention: You cannot change or edit Attribute Tags after creation.

Note: Functional word Product at the beginning will be automatically appended to the tag name. For instance, if you have created custom attribute TVSetFeatures, you need to use the tag <?php ProductTVSetFeatures() ?>

in the templates. The tag assigned to the attribute in the system is displayed below the Attribute Tag line. Please refer to the documentation for additional details about tags.
