I use the "add to Evernote" option in Outlook to move calendar events into Evernote... this is a great way to take notes from meetings.

Meeting time, participants, location, subject, etc. are all automatically copied into the note. Very nice!

Here's my question: is there any way that these Outlook data fields can be automatically mapped to tags?

You might be able to use the Evernote API to help create your own application to extract Outlook data and save it to a note, but there's nothing within the standard Evernote package to do so. You could include keywords in your note titles or content to make it easy to find linked groups of notes, then carry out searches to bulk tag the notes. -But if you can find them anyway through title and content searches, why bother with tags too?

I use Evernote constantly but don't speak for them.  Opinions here are my own based (more or less) on age,  experience,  and common business sense.  

Evernote read what's posted here,  and take it into consideration setting priorities;  they don't normally comment on individual cases,  or offer any forecasts or promises on whether or when a new feature might be released.
