mubed 3 Posted January 26, 2015 Share Posted January 26, 2015 Tag hierarchy is a very powerful instrument for organizing data and it is great that Evernote has this ability, but having the tags in a tree structure and being able to fold/unfold the branches is not really what makes the tag hierarchy powerful. An important aspect is currently missing: The parent tags have to contain the notes of the child notes too, e.g. having a first level tag called "tagA" and two second level ones called "tagA/subtag1" and "tagA/subtag2", when you tag 2 notes with "tagA/subtag1", 3 with "tagA/subtag2" and one with "tagA", you should see 6 items by filtering to "tagA". This is important because you actually need tag hierarchies to be able to group items both in fine detail level as well as having a top level view of the items, e.g. you may want to have a tag called "projects", then some subtag called "project alpha", "project beta", ... and then "another level like "Part1". Filterin to "Part1" you want to see all items inside "Projects/project alpha/ Part1" and filtering to "projects" you want to see all items in all projects. If the tag hierarchy is missing the feature I pointed out, you need to tag all items with subtags AND all parent tags to achieve this kind of filtering, which is very annoying (and you may forget it) Please extend the filtering to tags in a way that child tags are also included.
