Please add feature to automatically tag images which have been exported, tagging could be a keyword, color label, etc.

Allow to create, as for the impression, 'Print saved' with parameters, 'Export saved' with the export settings and store with collections as we can do with the recorded Impressions, it would be very convenient.

We could see the level of tile export registered under the collection icon name.

Like this example with print collections

There was a “Snapshot on Export” Lightroom Plugin

have a look at Jeffrey Friedl's Snapshot on Export (http://regex.info/blog/lightroom-good...), there you can save the develop settings and also ad Keywords, Tags, Color Labels ect.

Great Tool!

It's very good to save the development parameters, the 'Snapshots' are made for that, but they will not save the export settings and that's a pity, while my proposal would not lose the export settings used for this export, to keep the trace in a collection, possibly to publish this collection in an album to share on LR Web, so that a possible customer can choose the photos they wish to receive and in this case the export format would be guaranteed ....
Let's be visionary until the very end, I think some photographers would be happy to have such a simple tool to broadcast their images.

Obviously you have to be comfortable with the whole LR environment to appreciate this kind of workflow.

I use this tool.
Be aware that it only creates the snapshot AFTER exporting, so if you change settings while LR is not yet finished exporting, you could end up with a "wrong" snapshot.
The keywording/labeling would still work though.

Yves, I would suggest creating export presets with a snapshot using the presetname in the snapshotname (and/or keyword to be added after exporting).
So as long as you have the parameters of the preset, you know what settings (/presets) to use.

Example:
I export some square crops to be used on Instagram. I use a preset called Insta and the snapshot created by the plug in is called something like "export-190831-Insta".
A portrait crop of that same image sent to a client may have a snapshot called "export-190831-FullResJPEG"

I think, since exporting is not a seperate module, but a dialog box, it will be hard to have "saved settings" like you have in the book and print modules.

Personally, I even have preset that at once I get 4 jpeg different size .... So that I know how to do!

But initially the question was to recognize simply in the catalog, the grid, the images having been exported ... so it is not by creating export preset that we answer!

Above all I find that the interest and know why we exported the image, since the preset is not retained, it will be difficult ....

There is also the solution of the publications and make a file of publication by project, it is currently what I do and it is not bad, I can republish quickly if I have to give an image for example.

I thought the initial question was how to automatically tag/keyword/label an exported photo. "Please add feature to automatically tag images which have been exported"

And that is possible with the snapshot plugin.
Of course it would be nice if it was included in LR, but there is a way to achieve it.

Then you started about it being nice to know which photos were exported, but that it doesn't save your export settings.
So I described a work around for that with the plugin.

By the way, I am curious how you export a JPEG to 4 different sizes at once, because I can't think of a way to do it (other than maybe use an export action in the post processing options)

By the way, I didn't mean to imply you don't know HOW to make export presets.
But with the plugin you have extra options IN the export dialog box (and so it will also be recorded in an export preset) about NAMING the snapshot. So my suggestion was to use the naming part including the used export preset as a reminder.

Searching the History is the underlying need - it records Export, Publish, Print etc.

OK, but do not save the parameters used during the action ...
