  1. Firstly, can I thank each of you for taking the time to reply to my post. I am extremely grateful for all of your help and feel like I have a much better grasp of the pros and cons of tagging now. Based on the advice above and some reading I did, I have moved away from a notebook/prefix dependent system onto a tag based system and finding it really helpful. I use 'Who, what, when, where, why, how' as the main top level tags and then subdivide under that, for example, 'When' is separated into year, month, date and quarter tags. I also have a few frequently accessed tags that remain outside of this top level tags, for example, a tag for notes on the current book I am reading or note templates that I regularly access. As a result of this, I now have just 7 notebooks and 1 stack. I am also moving away from prefixing articles in favour of tagging which seems to be providing a more extensive and dynamic referencing system, as well as a more powerful way of searching for relevant content. Again, thanks so much for all the help. Much appreciated. Liam
  2. Hi Evernoters, I'm a church-based family worker who has been using Evernote since 2008. I use it to store meeting notes, logs of pastoral visits, sermon notes. I also have a resource library notebook of scans, notes, and web clippings on work related topics that, at the time of writing, contains over 1,200 entries. Despite this, I have never gotten my head around how to best use tags. I dabbled in the past but I ended up deleting them all in favour of a prefixing methodology. For example, meetings note titles always follow this format: YYYY MM DD Meeting: [Person/Reason (eg. Staff)]. This is all fine and good for meetings, but for my resources library, it is a bit more complex. Notes on specific biblical books or passages use the following: # Book Ch: Verse (Eg. 01. Genesis 1:1-10). Whereas articles, scans and clippings have a topic prefix (eg. Parenting: [Article title]. Currently, I only have two tags: '.CurrentBook' & '.CurrentSermon'. Long story short, I am not sure if I have posted this in the right place, and I know I'm not your 'usual' Evernote user, but could someone please help me get to grips with tags so that I can make the most of the mountain of notes and resources that I am compiling. Moreover, the larger my library gets the more I can't help but get the feeling that I'm not making the most of Evernote by using tags to link similar notes across notebooks. So yeah, if anyone can help me get my head around how best to use tags I'd be extremely grateful! Thanks in advance. Have a great evening all. Liam
