Reordering tags within a field

There are times where we would like to modify the order of tags in a tag field, where we rely on the order it is given by Builder's content API. Right now, you need to delete and re-add in the correct order to achieve this. Drag-and-drop reorderin...

Autosuggest in tag fields

Presently it is very easy to accidentally create typo variants of tags. Seeing a dynamic suggestion of exiting tags within the field as you type would help to alleviate that. I imagine that the candidates would be pulled from all of the tag conten...
