Copy Product Tags to Metafield

I wish to upgrade my theme to a newer “online store 2.0” version. The only downside to store 2.0 for me is the current lack of filtering by product tags on the live site.

 

With 1800 products each with 2-5 tags that’s a lot of work and data that is valuable to the customer experience (e.g. some have product tags which identify products specific to a film)

 

Is there an app or something to copy product tags into a product metafield so they can be used in the new 2.0 filter?

We are having the exact same issue. Have 1600 wine products with tags and the tags drive the way the collections are automatically built and allow customers to filter in lots of ways. The extra problem is that the tags are generated by custom fields in Netsuite that we have integrated.

No solution that I know of as yet. I have two sites, one of which I spent MANY hours inputting the metafield data manually. A lot of work but it does make for a very good filtering system so it is worth the effort. I’ll have to get to do it on my second site when I have some time!

I need to convert thousands of tags to metafield. For example tag "Category_Men" to metafield "Category" with value "Men". I have not found an answer yet.

Do you still have the problem with converting tags to metafields? Is there a way how to convert tags like Color_Blue to metafileds in bulk? We have got more than 4000 products, each with 5+ tags. Thank you very much for suggestions!
