Product tag - Can you have variant specific tags

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.

Just asked the support via chat

Its not possible, the tags are on the product itself rather than individual variants

Hi there, 

I am looking for an option for bulk edit my tags so  my customers can use filters - I have more than 500 products and I can't see option to bulk add simple tags as "black" or "XL" for size, can anyone help with that. Since my store is not in English no tags have been automatically added with the same name as the variant. That is why I have to add everything manually.

Hello @Valentina81 this should be possible by selecting multiple products from the products list and if navigate to More actions > add tags (scroll down in more actions section to see add tag option). Screenshot attached below.

Yeah, I know that option - but that way I should already know what variants are there in each product. If it is black or blue and what sizes they are...
