Setting Tags When Importing Via Automator

Unfortunally Automator doesn´t use “user tags”
Is there a posibility to add those ones?
Is there a plan to automate those actions with EF?

I plan to add an EagleFiler Automator action that can set tags. However, you can do it today via an AppleScript action in Automator. For example:

on run {input, parameters}
    tell application "EagleFiler"
        import files input tag names {"tag 1", "tag 2"}
    end tell
    return input
end run

There is also a command-line utility for manipulating tags on files before they are in EagleFiler.
