Add Article Tagging to the Modern News Feature
It would be great to tag News posts/articles by category (e.g., training, motivational, announcement, etc.). Users could then refine by category to see all articles under that tag.
This is essentially half-done already, as you can just add a column to a site collection. However, the webparts for News feature currently only take Title, Snippet of content and Author to build their display, and to allow "tagging", these web parts would need to allow configuring a display of one or more custom Properties.
would love to see that in the default ui
would also require an update for the news webpart to show a filter icon e.g.

I agree! I'm googling to a solution, but havn't found one yet... :(
This would be an ideal feature for a news site and given that this is being used as an intranet in my organisation will be invaluable as usage increases.
I also agree that this would be useful for general pages as well as news articles.

This should be available for pages also, not only news. And tag/word cloud to represent results would be great in addition to list web part.

This is an important feature in a modern intranet, I have a customer that requested this feature and a few others. Most other intranet solutions have a tag/category feature.
This would be great - better document management and easier to search for old articles that are categorized through hashtags

This would be very helpful to provide targeted news feeds from central publishing page (our communications team)

I seems related to what was announced at SPC18. Can you update the status.
Noticed this exact functionality is possible within the events webpart. Can categorize events and filter on those categories. Need that type of functionality on news feed.

We'd like to replace the old SharePoint blog with the Modern Pages/Webparts, but without tagging/filtering this will be possible only in small scenarios. Also what about a knowledge base - page categories, expiration date or such would be great. Please add this functionality soon :-)

how many times can we vote here?? and why wasn't this a v1 feature?
Adam Pope commented
Not just news articles, but also site pages should be able to be tagged with custom and managed metadata columns...
It would be nice to see these tags being able to use the term store too

Should also be possible to select this tag (category) in the web part settings on the page.
