Can we have tags on files and photos?

Can we have tags on files and photos?

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.

Hi there,

Sorry to spam this thread... but does anyone at Dropbox know when tagging features will be added?

Cloudfind seems to be the best way to do this outside of DB.

I've not used it yet, but does anyone know how it works?  Once you've tagged DB files using Cloudfind, do the files stay tagged? Does Cloudfind always need to be present?  Presumably it works in tandem with Dropbox.  If you stop using Cloudfind, are all your tags lost?

Thanks y'all.

Hi Jon, I can't promise if or when we might add native tagging to Dropbox. We're tracking it as a feature request.

ok, thank you for the reply Gregory.

I suspect it's a well requested feature.  I look forward to it being added.

 

Keep up the good work.

Cheers now,
Jon

Robert C. - Can you help me get access to Cloudfind? It seems like the perfect solution for us but I'm still waiting access.

Hi Jeff,

Sure thing. I also saw you emailed me directly and I know my colleague, Gareth Adams, is already in contact with you. He'll help you get started next week.

Thanks and I hope you like it!

I am also waiting for this feature. Having tons of photos from different happenings and really need to get those tags to specify different themes.

Cool feature if you, Dropbox, add this feature will be to get metadata from Lightroom and auto generate tags based on it.

Please, add this. Tags are really useful in macOS Finder, and they already sync as metadata via Dropbox, but we need to have Tags on Dropbox mobile apps and on Dropbox.com

Greg K. I've used Dropbox for about 5 years now after it was recommended by a local group of archivists doing research on the history of my organization. We have continued to use DB, and have been actively researching other programs because tagging will add functionality. Currently, we have to duplicate files in multiple folders (an unnecessary redundancy that will be resolved through tags). I don't want to change programs because I have been very satisfied with Dropbox. PLEASE escalate this request and add tagging to Dropbox as soon as possible. Thanks so much!
