database model class

A type of project model element stored in the database. Model classes can typically carry attributes (values) and have relationships to other model classes.

Element

Nearly every object in a GreenDesk Project Model Database is ultimately also an Element. It is the universal base class of all other model element types. When using GreenDesk, you will usually never deal with the base Element class directly.

TagSet

A Tag element is a general navigation and project organisation aid. Tags may be applied to most model element types from the main edit page for the element; clicking on a tag link brings up a page listing all elements "tagged" by that tag. The tags applied to an element are usually displayed as tag links under the element name (page title) on the element's main view page.
