Keywords in Custom Metadata fields

I love Custom Metadata (very useful for research, etc), but I often find myself doubling up between Custom Metadata and Keywords.

e.g. Let’s say I am collecting data on films, and create a Custom Metadata field for director, screenwriter, composer, etc. Currently, I would have to enter the names of those people manually as text within Metadata field. However, I also want to have those people tagged using Keywords, so I can search/filter using the Keyword system.

Solution: let Keywords be used inside Custom Metadata fields. Adding a Keyword to a Metadata box would also have it show up in the Keywords section, saving you the trouble of adding each piece of data twice.

The notetaking & productivity app Notion has something similar to this, and it’s very powerful when it comes to filtering databases.
