This script examines the tags for the selected notes in Evernote. For each tag it then traverses the Evernote tag tree all the way up to the root ultimately replacing the tag with all the tags along its path. Say, for example, a note is tagged with "apple". Also say that the tags are organized as follows:
Running Taggify Evernote on that note will result in the tag "apple" being replaced by the tags "plant", "food", "fruit", and "apple" sorted alphabetically.
By the way, as the program runs it counts off the notes so you have some idea of how
far along it has worked. You can adjust this by modifying the properties below.
Why would I want to do this?
- If you structure your tags hierarchically, and then apply all the tags along a path, you can search for tag:fruit for example and get any note with the tags apple, fuji, honeycrisp, red delicious, pear, bartlett, or d'anjoy.
- It saves you from having to manually enter all the tags along a path.
