I am unable to tag any item in a list or document libarary.

After some research I came to know that the Microsoft has retired the tags and notes features in SharePoint Online. This article which states this.

Could you please let me know why this feature is retired in SharePoint Online?

  • A hint to any alternative solution wouldn't hurt that post I think, but perhaps Taxonomy is "taking over"?

1 Answer 1


Yes the Tags and Notes have been retired as Microsoft's recommendation is for organizations to use the Yammer enterprise social networking solution instead.
