jimclay75050 0 Posted December 20, 2011 Share Posted December 20, 2011 A feature that I think would make Evernote more dynamic would be hierarchical filters. I know you can do filters with the search and that those searches can be saved. But I feel like there is a better way to use filters, that would make the filters much easier and faster to use. You could just drag and drop them to create different hierarchies.The left pane has several sections: Notebooks, Tags, Attribute, Saved Searches, and Trash. I think there also should be a section for hierarchical filtering using tags. As I have envisioned it, it would look much like the tag section looks now, but instead of having a hierarchical for organizing tags, the hierarchical would be a filter.So for example if you have this hierarchy:Tag 1. . . .Tag2. . . .. . . .Tag3Tag3If you clicked on Tag1, you would get every note that has been tagged with Tag1.If you click on Tag2, you would get every note in Tag1 that is also tagged with Tag2.And of course if you click on Tag3, you would get every note in Tag1 that has also been tagged with Tag2 and then tagged with Tag3.Then if you clicked on the second Tag3, because it is at the first level, you would get ever note that has a Tag3 tag.I think this would be a very flexible way to organize notes. You could create a structure that would be the same as that used with notebooks, but with more levels. And you could use the tags in other creative ways.You could even have Not tags. Such as:Tag1. . . .<Tag2>So if you clicked on <Tag2> you would see all the notes with Tag1 that do not have the tag Tag2.Perhaps you could do Or and Either tags, but that might be getting too detailed and unnecessary.I hope this makes sense. It seems like it would work well and be easy to use. The only negative is you would have to use tags on all your notes. And you would have to plan your tags in advance, not just create tags willie neely. Link to comment
