burkedroppings 0 Posted July 13, 2011 Share Posted July 13, 2011 I've developed a tendency to "batch" information and place multiple documents in one note rather than giving each its own unique cubbyhole. A good example of this practice is saving several email messages, which comprise a single conversation, into one note rather than several. My thinking is that this will make it less important to use a lot of tags or to develop a scheme for note titles (which I've done, as in "part I;" "part II;" etc.Can anyone suggest arguments on one side or the other of this question? Given the choice, should an EN user tend to store information in smaller chunks or larger ones?Note: this could be taken to an extreme by appending new data to existing notes (such as tacking this month's statement onto the end of a single note that will eventually contain a year's worth of statements). I know of one possible drawback to this scenario: the entire note will be uploaded each time it's revised and, depending on other variables could end up threatening data limits within EN and/or for various devices that sync when records are added OR modified.I hope this makes sense and I'll be grateful for some guidance. I've jumped right into the deep end of the pool (gone premium in my first month and am approaching 750MB for the past two weeks. I've learned a lot and now know how I could have kept that number lower; but I'm not going to spend time regretting mistakes as long as I'm so thrilled with the whole process and the features provided. I'll go back and "clean up" the most egregious of my foibles later; for now it's onward and upward! Link to comment
