While Shared and Certified Datasets provide the ability to find datasets that are deemed approved by a governance body, I would like to see the ability to add tags to the Dataset that would be searchable within the Power BI Service and Power BI Desktop. The goal is to be able to search tagging across the tenant to find Datasets that meet my needs. For example, tags can show me that a Certified Dataset was created by Finance, is owned by a specific person, contains x data points I need for my reporting, etc. Knowing a Dataset is Certified is a good start, but I could really benefit from assigning tags to that Dataset so others know exactly what's in the Dataset and key information about it. I would really like to see a Tagging section within Desktop, that flows through to the Power BI Service once published.
