It is essential that RefWorks export "tag" metadata in its various export formats. I have been using RefWorks for years but am discontinuing my use of your product until tag data is exportable. Tag metadata is some of the most valuable data in the library of citations that I have amassed over the past four years, and because it is not currently exportable, it feels as if ProQuest is holding my data hostage. Exportable metadata is not merely a perk to be added to your service; it is a MAJOR structural flaw that needs to be addressed.
I am happy to update that this item is now in Planned status and is part of the 2020 roadmap.
I'm in the same situation that the person that explain his problems with export "tag". In my case, the problem is with the exportation of keyworks.. As I can't do it I'm going to use other products and I have serious doubts about if I will came back to Refworks!!!

I am very content with the possibility to transfer Refworkdata to Excell, However the Tags are not transfered. I 'd like to see a Tag column in Excell

Yes, I expected Tags to be exported as a "keywords" field in BibTex.

I would like to be able to export tags to .tsv file, just like it is possible in Legacy to export descriptors/keywords. Working around this by using custom fields for tags is not a good alternative because they are not searchable/indexed and not visible in the short title presentation.
