Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

There seems to be a lot fewer tags available on the Sharepoint Stack Exchange site in comparison to other Stack Exchange sites. Is there a reason for this?

Tags don't exist until they've been created and applied to at least one question. If you need a tag that doesn't exist, then you should create one. If not, then there's no reason for it to exist.

On Sharepoint at the time this answer is written, 300 reputation is required to create tags. Users with less than that will have to request that a moderator or another user with sufficient privileges create the desired tag, for example by leaving a comment on their question.

But on balance, sites with a more limited scope are going to have fewer tags. Stack Overflow, which covers all things programming-related is almost guaranteed to have a zillion different tags. Sharepoint, which only covers Sharepoint and Sharepoint-related technologies, will naturally have fewer.
