Hello everyone!

 

How can I tag/mark a document as "important" in Sharepoint 365 and also how I can search for those documents marked as "important" ?

Please do not consider the "Pin to top" function.

 

Thank you in advance.

one way is to create a custom column, maybe called "Business Sensitivity", as a choice or managed metadata field. If the docs will be in multiple site collections, a Managed Metadata column would be better.
You will then be able use a Content Search web part https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Configure-a-Content-Search-Web-Part-in-SharePoint-0DC16DE1-... or Highlighted Search part https://support.office.com/en-us/article/use-the-highlighted-content-web-part-e34199b0-ff1a-47fb-8f4...
