abi_shepherd 0 Posted February 6, 2013 Share Posted February 6, 2013 Hello. I need a little help. I have been using evernote for a couple of years. I use it for everything. I have recently felt that I have too many Notebooks and too many tags. I have taken the step to combine MOST of my notebooks in one big notebook called "ARCHIVE". And created a brand new notebook which I have called ***INBOX (so it goes to the top) and made it my default so that new notes can go in there before being filed. I have still kept a notebook for the following: Family (shared with my husband) Recipe Book (I just prefer to keep this separate - although I don't cook so I wonder if a tag wouldn't suffice) Turkey house (shared notebook) Blog (where I do all my writing and research related to my blog) I'm quite happy with this solution. However, when it comes to tags, I'm completely at a loss. My temptation is to completely delete them all and start again. But I have 3423 notes altogether and I am worried that if I start from scratch with the tags that a) I'll have to re-tag everything or do something (like editing the title so that I know they can be accessed with the correct keywords), I may "lose" some notes that don't have titles like my kids artwork that I've photographed for memory's sake. I already got rid of a whole pile of notebooks which were for my diary entries - I renamed each entry to Diary-YY-MM-DD So they are easily findable (with a tag also of "diary" - although I wonder if that is necessary). Is this maybe the way to go to tidy things up a bit? Making sure that things have the correct titles? Part of my thinking of reorganising things is that I have been wondering about using Evernote for GTD/task management purposes. I've been reading up on what other people do but I've not found anyone with my issue (starting again basically and redesigning your evernote system). Any help would be most grateful. PS I use evernote on my work Windows laptop, my iMac/macbook at home and also iPhone and occassionally (when the kids let me) ipad. Link to comment
