I am facing the same problem as the most users in this topic.
I have created a notebook and want to share it with my team members. I understand the argumentation to not allow other users to mess with my tags. On the other hand, I understand everybody who wants to decide themselves about this feature.
Creating tags inside the note or to the titel is a good workaround. But doing so makes tags completey obsolete. Every user of a shared notebook will write his/her own tags, which ends up in the same mess like I would do with tags. I think the Evernote designers should consider how to solve this issue by the roots. Why not creating an algorithm which learns to merge similar tags?
But I could live with the given rules if other users of a shared notebook would be able to add the already existing tags in a more comfortable way. So far they are not allowed to add tags with the webclipper at all!!! This doesn´t make sense to me.
They have to clip it, then open the Evernote tool to add the tags. Next problem occurs: When adding the tags there is no autocorrect - users have to know how the tag is written. It should be the same comfort as for notebook owners. If you start typing your tag, the system should recommend the existing tags. I think that this should be possible from the technical side.
What does the Gurus think?
