Initialization Option Author API


Specifies Tag objects which are added to a new Activity when saved.

You would want to use this so that you can easily assign default Tags based on your own content categories.

Note Tag types defined in the hide_tags and tags_on_create initialization options will be saved but not displayed in the UI.

A maximum of 50 Tags are allowed.

        "activity_edit": {
