Sorry about your Gators man - love playing them in Atlanta.
Anyway - I'm thinking of changing how to process stuff. Maybe your way, help me out. Now I have something in "today" in my inbox for example, and I do it/complete it etc... I move to completed or change the notebook to completed in the note, but my tag is still there and pops up in search or if I remove the tag before moving to complete it disappears from the search as soon as I remove it and then have to hunt it down to move to completed...
I've encountered the same problem, and resolved by changing the ".When" tag with a "Actions pending" notebook ile containing those notebooks :
1 - Daily
2 - Tickler (as I use Evernote as a calendar)
3 - This week
4 - Next week
5 - This month
6 - Later
7 - Someday
8 - Waiting
As EACH note MUST have been one and only one ".When" tag, I found it easier to manage.
