Scotto74 3 Posted September 27, 2013 Share Posted September 27, 2013 I use EN as a GTD-style tool.My naming convention for tags is as follows:context tags start with '@' (eg. @Home, @Work, @Computer etc.)priority tags start with '!' (eg. !Next Action, !Someday)project tags start with '#' (eg. #Renovations, #Garden, #School etc.)All notes eventually get assigned a context, a priority and (optionally) a project. I have saved searches as follows:Inbox (-tag:@*) - any notes not yet tagged with a context (@). This is the 'dumping' ground for new notes into the system, that need to be further processed. Next Action @ Home (tag:@Home, tag:!Next Action) - stuff to work on immediately when at HomeWaiting @ Home (tag:@Home, -tag:"!Next Action", -tag:!Someday) - notes tagged as @Home, but not !Next Action or !Someday. This implies that they're waiting on something.Someday @ Home (tag@Home, tag:!Someday) - stuff to work on some day when at Home Next Action @ Work (tag:@Work, tag:!Next Action)Waiting @ Work (tag:@Work, -tag:"!Next Action", -tag:!Someday)Someday @ Work (tag:@Work, tag:!Someday) Next Action @ Computer (tag:@Computer, tag:!Next Action)Waiting @ Computer (tag:@Computer, -tag:"!Next Action", -tag:!Someday)Someday @ Computer (tag:@Computer, tag:!Someday) As of v7.0; the "Inbox" and "Waiting @ ..." searches returned no notes. Other users reported similar issues using "-tag:*" search criteria. As of v7.0.1; the "Inbox" search now works correctly (so the problem with "-tag:*" appears to be resolved); however the "Waiting @ ..." searches now crash EN). The only difference seems to be that -tag:"!Next Action" has quotes around it (required because "!Next Action" tag has a space in it). Link to comment
