Hi we have DellForce10 switches and we are changing them to Cisco Meraki switches. On the Dell switch we have the following Vlan setup:

Covington-CustomerCheckout-S25>show vlan

Codes: * - Default VLAN, G - GVRP VLANs, P - Primary, C - Community, I - Isolated
Q: U - Untagged, T - Tagged
   x - Dot1x untagged, X - Dot1x tagged
   G - GVRP tagged, M - Vlan-stack

Now, the Meraki switch has Native and allowed VLANS and I am not sure how to set it up. Below are the options that I have to set it up with. I am also a little confused on what the untagged and tagged traffic means on the the Dell switch and how that would translate onto the configuration of the Meraki Switch.

On trunk ports, the native VLAN is untagged, and other VLANs are tagged. You are configuring a trunk port on the Cisco, according to the Type field. The native VLAN will not be tagged on the trunk, but all the other VLANs will.

No VLANs will be tagged on access ports.

It looks like the Dell has a trunk on Po1, but the other ports are access ports. It also looks like the Dell has no native VLAN set on Po1.
