Organize with tags
Please, it would be extremely useful to implement the tags feature, similar to what already exists in ProtonMail. This makes it easy to organize and find the different types of files on ProtonDrive.

Yes, file tags would make things so much better. Refer to MacOS file tags. As another user suggested, Proton Mail labels is a good way to implement tags also. Being able to have multiple tags for each file would be wonderful. This is one of the main reasons that I really can't use Proton Drive. What you've created so far is very good. Given that files are searchable from the browser interface makes Proton Drive reasonably useful, however I haven't adopted Proton Drive yet mainly because of the file tags issue.
3. custom fields can already be created: https://twitter.com/Proton_Pass/status/1674771583791972353.
This is more scalable and will cause less clutter than creating all the individual fields you mentioned.
4. is now semi automatic: https://twitter.com/Proton_Pass/status/1682065416879849490

1. Implement Categories and Tags.
2. Allow .pdf files to be attached to each Password Login item.
3. Create individualized fields for Login Passwords, Credit Cards, Bank Accounts, Software Licenses, Passports, Social Security Numbers, Drivers Licenses, Reward Programs, Memberships, Secure Notes.
4. Auto entry 2-Factor Authentication
This is a function I am really missing in proton drive. With tag I could easier group documents from different folders.
Tagging is essential for document management. E.g. I need to keep track of all invoices I have, so I have a folder structure which is based on client names. In those folders a folder for each year is created, and I can see all client invoices over time. However, I also need to see all invoices for a specific year for all clients. That's not really possible at the moment. So it would be great to tag document with a year or a date an then have Proton Drive list all those documents.
First off, holy shit it's painful to leave feedback on this forum!
But even if you just give some color tag options like OSX, that would be huge. Just some quick visual indicator.
If Proton Drive offered a searchable comments field for both file folders and individual files, one could then devise their own scheme for quickly finding similar files or organizing them in a way that works best for them using hashtags or whatever. While there would be "zero knowledge of content of files" obviously, there would be knowledge about the comments so that they could be searched quickly and easily. It's just like on Proton Mail where the subject line is easily searchable compared to the content of the email which is typically more secure.
The ability to add one or multiple hashtags to a file would make organization and searching your files much easier.
For example, if a user has a library of food pictures/recipes, they could search or filter their library for one or multiple tags such as #Vegetarian, #30MinuteMeal, #BBQ, or #Garlic
