Microsoft just added an excellent feature coming to Microsoft 365, on the product’s roadmap: tagging. As the name suggests, this feature will allow you to tag all of your Office files, from Word to PowerPoint and Excel files.

When you tag them in documents, you’ll be able to access them easier, and even organize them according to your needs.

The tagging will be possible on Microsoft 365 desktop and mobile versions of the app, and Microsoft says that it’s an intuitive way to manage your files.

Tagging in the Microsoft 365 and web and desktop apps is a new, intuitive way for commercial users to organize their work independent of where files are stored.


However, there is only one impediment: you’ll need to have your OneDrive account linked to your Microsoft professional account.
