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 have the same plan... and the feature was launched to Teams | Business subscriptions, but has now been released to all plans, per what I read on the blog post. I think you might not be finding the functionality. It's was not obvious to me how to find it.
Check my screen capture below to see if it helps. You need to be in the browser while in Dropbox. When you click on a file or mark the checkbox of several files, the TAG window appears on the right.
Hope this helps. Let me know... m,
I can tag using the web version. Where is the tag feature using the phone app? That is where most pictures are taken nowadays.
Hi @Tinchohs now I saw it in a vertical right panel not seen before. Let me play with this desirable feature. Thank you and Emma very much. Years waiting for this.
@hogfish823 I hear you. No support, yet, for desktop and mobile versions. I really hope they take it there soon. I would assume that once the backend capability has been implemented, over time they will enable these features in all platforms. Hopefully!
@C-A-H Enjoy. I have not gone fully into it yet. Since I don't see a Tags browser yet, I'm thinking a bit harder about how to define my labels so they show altogether when I start a search. I.e. Perhaps starting all my tags with 't_xxx' or something like that. Let me know what you learn. I want to make good use of this.
I also read that they will soon make available Smart Folders where you can bring all files with certain tags. That will come in very handy.
@Tinchohs thanks for your questions, I've checked these with the product team and:
1. Is there a way to browse all the existing tags catalog?
This is not currently available, but we have shared your feedback.
2. Do these Dropbox tags somehow play with the tags you can create in a Paper document?
No, the tags can't be used inside paper docs content, only at the file/folder level. Thank you for outlining the use case here, we've shared this with the product team too!
3. I did not see the option to Create an Automated Folder. I presume this has not been rolled out for my account just yet. Is this correct?
It is, automated folders is planned for release for personal users over the coming weeks.
Thanks, @Emma. Really appreciate the update and you sharing the ideas with the team. Have a great week. m.
Just to clarify, tags are still limited to dropbox.com & not the desktop or mobile apps correct?
@Reut V Thanks for sharing. Really appreciate it. I've been playing with it and it's an awesome start.
A few thoughts that come to mind for potential future evolution:
Hope these ideas help! Thanks a lot for asking. m.
