We have a preview of custom metadata for OneDrive Personal available now. We’re definitely interested in feedback on the approach and how apps will use it! https://dev.onedrive.com/misc/custom-metadata.htmBeau Cameron commented
We want to use the metadata for existing Excel files that are living in PowerBI. Use the Personal Gateway to auto-refresh this data.
The metadata will then allow us to use SharePoint Search and managed properties to map to files in OneDrive, and embed Excel Reports on a page. Currently powerBI api is not strong enough for us to use completely, and want to build around Excel Reports.
You need to add this feature back. I don't understand why you took it away in the first place.
We are thinking about how to add support for metadata views and editing in OneDrive experiences. Please share your thoughts in the comments section.Beau Cameron commented
Exactly this. Wee need tagging back!
