Hello, im missing tags. I know many people and sometimes i want to send message to group of some of them, but i need to find each one and add him as a recipient. Taging contacts and possibility to do something with them would be very usefull for me. :)

While creating a new Tag > We should be able to set Tag-Order.
1th in list = higher priority = default behavior = GROUP!!

Also, Tags could have multiple functions and purposes too, like:

  • Unique Ringtone,
  • Number to block,
  • Pass through in silent mode,
  • default icon / picture

Some Tags could be exclusive, so they could be grouped together to ease selection and avoid wrong tagging: schoolmate / oldSchoolmate friend / foe / neutral wife / lover ;)

As SQL programmer myself IMHO it is very easy to implement into a relational database.

This would give unlimited possibilities to everyone.
I recommend to MERGE this topic to other requests, like contact-Groups, ringtones, etc.

This topic should be merged with this: contact group

The problem with tags, you can't use it to synchronize with syncml or other sync way... Many of them supports groups, but not tag.

So, in addition, tags is more difficult to implement (n to n). Since Group is requested since many years without any implementation today, I think a more complex (and different from android) request is without hope. So, Merge this two topic is not a good idea...

I totally agree @condo4. Tags are not supported by cloud services. so I won't be able to sync them with my nextcloud server. Do I prever the grouping too!
