In the File app of iPad, the tagging doesn't work for the Dropbox files and folders.
Google drive, and one drive works well.
What I tried:
1. deactivate dropbox in the File app and activate -> not working
2. delete tag and re-tag -> not working
3. delete dropbox app and re-install -> not working
Hello @grami_1, I hope you're well today!
Could you just clarify for me what exactly is not working with the tags? Are they not showing correctly after applying them, or perhaps are they not stay on the files/folders?
If it's relevant, please feel free to send along a few screenshots (excluding any personal info).
Keep me posted!

I've noticed the same: if you tag a file on your mac, the tagging doesn't get translated to the Files app on iPad.
The tag titles DO change if you edit them from 'Red' to 'Important' for instance.
Secondly, once you've tagged a file in the actual Files app by selecting and tagging, it is still not searchable via the Tags shortcuts list. A search for any Tag is always empty.
