Got an idea for Dropbox? We want to hear it. Our team will review the top voted ideas, so share them here!
Will dropbox ever be able to support tags on files? Would be great to categorize our design work by feature and format without creating lots of folders.
I continue to support this feature request even though I've had to introduce another application (WordPress + Out-of-the-Box plugin) into the mix to compensate for the MISSING tag feature in Dropbox. I'm encouraged to see this feature request is still somewhat alive and active and I'm hopeful something will come out of it. A search feature without additional indexing and filtering aids (like tagging) returns too much noise and is not usable. Please scale up your indexing options to match the volume of content that you are encouraging users to store on your servers.

Thanks for the detailed feedback everyone!
Interested. Tell me more about CloudFind.
This would be a lovely feature. Our team stores a stock library on our Dropbox and searching for images is a chore. We stayed with Dropbox for convienience since the rest of our creative files are stored on Dropbox. Would love to see this feature implemented.
That may be the case for users that have the folders synced to their machines, but for those that do not, the problem still persists.
I cannot believe there is no ability to search the metatag information on photos through the desktop and mobile apps. Trying to find a specific photo is a mess unless you know exactly where it's at. This is the only reason I am still holding on to my Flickr account. The Flickr interface is clumsy and distracting. But when I'm on my phone and want to show or post a photo I know I can find it quickly on Flickr. By entering a couple of tag words I can find a specific photo in seconds out of the 12,000 photos I have there. If Dropbox ever got that ability I would kick Flickr to the curb.
