OneNote Is Getting Support for Custom Tags

Posted on December 18, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Microsoft Consumer Services with 13 Comments

Microsoft OneNote is getting a much-requested feature soon: custom tags. The service will soon allow users on Windows 10 and Mac to create custom tags that sync across all their devices and allow them to better organize their notes.

The new feature will be available through the tags button on the ribbon, where you can create a new tag. You can use a custom icon for your tag, and give it whatever name you like. Once that’s done, you can use the tag to better organize your notes on your OneNote notebooks much like the default tags.

Custom tags are supported by the search feature too, so you will be able to search for notes using your custom tag as well. The custom tags sync across all your devices, so you don’t have to manually create them on different devices.

The feature will be available to OneNote for Windows 10 and OneNote for Mac users in January 2019, and it will likely make to other platforms, including mobile and the web, later on.
