Short answer: you can't. Not yet.
Long answer: if you create tags with the same names, same colours, in the same order, for all the accounts that need to "share" tags, then it will mostly work. When you add a tag to a shared item, it just puts the "tag ID" on that message. When you view the tags, it uses the "tag names" as set on that account.

Hello

So I suppose it's the same for the address book? We have a shared one, but tagging contacts does not appear for everyone (ie I tag a contact, I'm the only one to see it which is not very useful).

Is there no way to make this work?
Thanks!

It should be the same for everywhere that tags are used. You have to create the tags using the same names, in the same order, for all accounts that will be sharing folders, addressbooks, calendars, etc.
When you tag items, just the tag index number is attached to the item, and not the tag name.
If I create the tags "important", "normal", and "not important", and then you create the tags "yes", "no", and "maybe", and I tag an item as "important" in a shared folder, you will see it tagged as "yes".

Is it possible to get the list of the tag ID's so we can make sure to create the tags using the same names/order for other accounts?
I guess this is bug Bug 23060 – Tags / Categories on Shared Contacts + syncing
There is no comittment to when/if this very old bug will be fixed. However, it is a serious shortcomming in the current product. The whole tag feature is only half-baked. I believe we need to tell our customers that they can not share categories/tags because the workaround is near impossible to get right.

There has to be a way to export a users tags, surely? A CLI command that creates a simple table for a user like this:

tagID; tagNAME; tagCOLOR

[quote user="koning"]So three years later this high priority (for some) feature is not even on the road map? Oh boy.... :([/QUOTE]It only has 21 votes on it (not including you, as far as I can tell) and that, I guess, means it's not high priority for most users.

Is there any chance that tags can be shared or even exported?
This bug is known for years and we expected that in Zimbra 8.0.4 it would get functional, but it isn't. We are trying to build a corporate address book in Zimbra and share it - but it seems that it's better not to do so. It is just not "collaborative".

Please, do get serious about functionality and purpose of the product.
Regards,
Duda

As of Zimbra 8, tagged data CAN be shared. See Bug 5210 ? Tagging shared items
If user 1 tags a contact and shares the address book with user 2, user 2 can now see that tag on the contact and add that tag to his own list of local tag strings.
