How can we improve OneNote for Mac?

Mac: Custom tags

As a law student, the tags that are included in this version are completely useless without being able to search for them. Please allow us the ability to use custom tags or at the very least be able to compile like-tags in one place

Also, tags in your notebook and pages now appear in your search results.

    Why is this not a thing yet? How many years until they finally make this feature? I have wanted this for like four years and it is still not a thing? You announced that it would be available jan 2019 what happened to that?

    I agree. These tags are not useful the current way they are implemented. Searchable tags would be much more beneficial.

    The tags in OneNote aren't useful to me, I would like to create custom tags, adding this feature to the Mac (finally) would be helpful.

    Yes... I would like to-do priorities 1-5, and a clock or calendar icon for due date... I could create these myself if you added the custom tags feature.

    Adding my support for this feature request. Please add the ability to create custom tags, search for tags, organize by tags, quickly find tags, and add multiple tags to a single page. I don't use One Note for personal business because of this missing feature.

    This would really help - especially with accessibility/vision. Many of the tags are yellowish and hard to discern in an environment with heavy lighting, glare, or glare screens. Not just for Mac but windows also or 365.

    Guys! You started gathering feedback almost a year ago (about a function that already exists on windows), but we still don't have the possibility to use custom tags.
    At least can we get some feedback about a possible release date for this basic functionality?

    What happened to tags being releases in Jan? Another month has passed, and another 'bug fix' release.

    Le sigh.

    Without the Custom Tags, I find it difficult to commit to a transition from Evernote.

    Come on guys, custom tags are an absolute necessity for a Note app.. What does it take to allow users to add their own tags. OneNote is a fairly good note app but it could be great with the addition of custom tags. Users have been asking for this for years.

    will custom tags ever be coming to OneNote for Android ? or a release schedule with feature parity across all commonly used devices ?
