Product tag - Can you have variant specific tags

Tourist

Currently when you create product tags, it applies the common tag to all variants under the specific product.  Is there is an option to assign variant specific tag.  Example : If I have a Product "Hat" and the variants are "Red", "Blue" and "Pink", if I assign a tag "Sports", it will tag all the variants with "Sports" but I might want variant "Blue" only to have an additional tag say "On sale".  The reason I need this is as I offer discounts on particular variants of my products and not all in many cases and I would like to create a collection of "On Sale" only items that I can then apply my discount code to.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks.

I am looking for this answer as well. 

 

I want all the "blue" variants to show when searched. I seem to have been able to upload variant tags via cvs, but It doesn't show up in the product.

 

thanks

I also am looking for this functionality... Anyone from Shopify have an answer for us?

I am as well. We not only want to tag variants for colors, but also clearance, as our top level products stay the same but we offer different colors for a limited time and don't always restock all colors. 

 

I'm surprised this isn't baked in to Shopify. Are there any apps that allow additional functionality to tag on variants. 

 

And the bigger question, does Shopify actually monitor and respond to questions? :(

I not seen a response from anyone from Shopify not found satisfactory responses. There are probably apps that do it but have not personally tried. I am a small business and budget constrained. Shopify needs to really revamp the functionality so they are more responsive to needs of real business world.
