Can we have tags on files and photos?

Can we have tags on files and photos?

New member | Level 1

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 tag my files in MacOS. I can tag files in iOS, when I use iCloud Drive, but it really sucks: I have to select tags from a (non-sorted) list. And I have more than 2,000 tags. If Dropbox could give me access to my MacOS tags, I would be the happiest Dropbox user!

I request adding the capability in Dropbox to retain and view JPG & TIFF file metadata (i.e. Tags, Title, Comments, Subject) on the Dropbox website? I would like to use these fields to add identifying information to old photographs that include several individuals. That would allow for sharing these photographs with others and also recovering files from Dropbox when I need to.

I love it when I come to one of the most requested features a platform has ever had, with a steady stream of requests for over 6 years...and the only response from employees occasionally is "we'll add this to our request log," as if it hasn't already been added a slew of times. Dropbox, PLEASE - we need metadata for files and folders. This would be gigantic for users. Folks have been begging for ages - please add this.

I signed up for a paid Dropbox plan in 2012, and had been on the free plan for a while before that. I'll be migrating to Google Drive before my next renewal date based solely on the handling of photos, including this issue and its lack of movement.

Google Photos does a better job of handling photos, and the vast majority of my storage needs are for photos so being able to search them is incredibly important. I was even willing to develop my own tool to analyse my photos and apply tags, because I like Dropbox otherwise. But this is seriously a deal breaker.

Since 2016 Gregory's Dropbox answer, they still havent add the Tagg Feature to Dropbox. Almost 4 years. A shame.

It’s frustrating, but I found a solution that lets me tag my Dropbox files with a cool chrome extension.

After 6 years from this initial comment, is it already posible to create tags in imagens and docs?

The only solution Bropbox is giving us is to migrate.

I think our best and simpler solution to all Dropbox users could be to MIGRATE to Apple ICLOUD.

Over 5 years since this request was filed, is it safe to say that you will never implement this feature?

hello. this is desperately needed and is a feature of any modern file storage system. is there no plan to add a tagging feature to dropbox?
