Do Mac Finder tags sync to other computers?

Hi! I am in the process of creating an organizations for the company I work for. I found that tagging files in finder is a great way to organize files, and I was wondering if any file that I tag, will have the same tag for a different user on a different computer. 

 

I can't seem to find a clear answer for this, and if this isn't possible (it should be) it would be nice to know in advance.

 

 

Thanks!

They are now syncing via Mac - which the never ever used to do so thats obviously a new feature.

I'd imagine they would all sync between various Mac users but that'd be it.

No, tags will not sync. Tags are not stored within the file. They're stored in a separate part of the file system specific to the operating system (this is also why tags across different operating systems are usually not compatible).

This isn't true.  Finder tags sync between Macs.

Interesting, because others have posted here asking how they can get tags to sync, implying that they weren't syncing.

Yo, Mark... chime in?
