Lists are lists of keywords or tags. Lists are primarily used to serve for tagging content.

A list is your controlled vocabulary, your taxonomy, used for tagging with multidimensional information. That means a list can only have tags with a name or tags that have further information, such as synonyms, translations, broader terms, narrower terms, etc.

A list in Picturepark can also be linked to other lists, enriching the tag as all information from linked lists travels with it. For example, a person named John Doe, who is tagged with the department Marketing, has all the additional information about the marketing department, such as goals, manager, and other team members.

In Pictureparks' three-column layout, you see the list and its list items. The sidebar is your editing area where you update the selected list item. Moreover, when you search through all lists, you can see the list items and their lists as clickable links.
