Analyst444 182 Posted February 8, 2013 Share Posted February 8, 2013 I recently read a tip for structuring tags. While I can't take credit for it, I also can't remember who to give credit to. The tip was to start each Tag with a letter (like "B" or "M"). That way, when you click in the "Click to Add Tag" field, you start with a letter and that will reduce the list of existing tags down to those that start with that letter. Of course, this requires applying some structure around your tags. Here's is a description of my structure to help you decide what might work for you. I pre-established a small handful of Tag categories and letters. Here they are. You can see how my mind works. The categories are similar to the old "who", "what", "when" and "where".T = TopicP = PeopleL = LocationD = Disposition (of the note)Here some some examples of some of my specific tags for each category:T-ArtT-BooksT-InvestingT-GenealogyT-Medical P-MeP-SpouseP-Son1P-Son2 L-FloridaL-BookcaseL-MapleStreet D-DraftD-RetainUntilD-WorkInProcess As you can see, I always add a hyphen (-) after each letter to make the tag a little easier to read. I don't have a rule that says I have to use a T, P, L, and D tag on each note. I can not confirm, but I presume this would work on all Evernote clients. I hope you find this tip to be helpful.
