Remove Tags from Multiple Items? [Coming in a future update]

edited August 3 in Windows

Is there a way to remove/add tags from/to multiple items? I just ported everything from a Dropbox account to a new 1Password account, and all of them have a tag "Imported on...", and I'd like to remove that, however I don't see any way to do that through the Windows client without going through each one individually and deleting them one by one.

Any help?


1Password Version: 6.6.435d
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: Windows 10 1607
Sync Type: 1Password

    Hi @jm.torres92,

    Thanks for writing in.

    Bulk tag editing is not yet implemented but it is coming in a future update. I would recommend not going through each one right now and wait for us to implement this.

  • As a software dev I know that you're probably hesitant to reveal this info, but I have to ask: any ETA on that?

    Hi @jm.torres92,

    No ETA, mass/bulk edits are something that the app is not tuned for yet but it is an ongoing work.

  • One of the main reasons I switched to 1Password from KeePass was tagging. KeePass used the classic folder structure. I switched to Gmail way back when for the same reason (labels). It's very disappointing that there is no way to bulk edit tags. I appreciate that it's under development, but consider this a plea to raise the priority on bulk tagging!

    Hi @theaknights,

    Thanks, I've added your vote to our issue. We can't implement this until we finish the other work first but we do know how important this is and have received a lot of requests for this.

  • I'd like to add my vote for this. Better tag management is sorely needed (combine tags, add/remove tags in bulk, etc).

    Hi @ravensorb,

    Thank you for weighing in! I can certainly understand where you are coming from. Better tag management is on our list, but as Mike mentioned above, we can't implement it before laying the groundwork for it. Working on it! :+1:

  • I'd like to vote for it too.
    Because your import script is responsible for this automated "imported on day xxx" tag that no one needs/wants - why do you force users with this tag that no one wants? :(
    Can somebody please slap the person who thinks that this was a good idea?!? >_<

    I want to get rid of this as fast as possible and definitly not by editing over 400 items one by one :(
    Hopefully your coders provide a solution asap. Maybe a workaround?

    Thanks in advance.

    @Maddeen: I wish I had a workaround for you, but I do not have one at the moment.

    We are making a great progress improving 1Password 6 for Windows, but better tags management is yet to come. We didn't forget about it, but I do not have a timeframe for you now. I hope for your understanding. Thank you! :+1:

  • Thanks for your reply - hopefully you provide us a solution within 2017 :)

  • Please... the imported on day xxx is annoying :-)

    Hi guys,

    We do understand how annoying it is as it is annoying us too but there is a reason we do this; it is to undo the import if it goes wrong. For most folks, this isn't needed and can be removed. That option is coming in a future update.

    For some users, import is the only option of updating entries (no sync at work, etc) and that's why we're being safe than sorry by implementing a tag for each import, some users import from various different computers at once and the tag is the only way to tell them apart.

  • Voting for this too. Under Import, perhaps to be able to select enable or disable tagging could be a solution.

    That is a neat idea, @Defrax! Thank you for your suggestion. :chuffed: :+1:

  • I'm a 1Password enthusiast, but the tagging features on the Windows app still need improving. So here's another vote for bulk renaming/adding/removing tags on the Windows app.

    @oohnajra: I'll be sure to pass along your + 1 for bulk removal too. :+1:
