I have a small project that requires migrating from Sharepoint 2010 to Sharepoint Online. According to Microsoft, tags have been discontinued.

I have been able to add Enterprise Keywords and custom metadata columns which works great.

Sharepoint Online still has a column for tags (despite it not being editable). The client is still very much focused on tags for the moment. I cannot seem to figure out how to assign a tag via C#. Is there anyone who could point me in the right direction?

using (var cc = new OfficeDevPnP
        Web web = cc.Web;

        FileCreationInformation newFile = new FileCreationInformation();
        newFile.Content = System.IO.File.ReadAllBytes(@"C:\Test\Upload.jpg");
        newFile.Url = "Upload.jpg";

        Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.List docs 
            = web.Lists.GetByTitle("Documents");

        Folder folder = docs.RootFolder.Folders.GetByUrl("General");
        File uploadFile = folder.Files.Add(newFile);

        //uploadFile.Tag = ???


What do I set at uploadFile.Tag?
