On the old board, there used to be several, extensive threads that showed how tags replicate nested folders. I don't think they got migrated to the new board. This is one thing many people new to Evernote have a problem with - the lack of sub folders. IMO (and apparently Evernote's), tags can replicate nested folders but are much more flexible. Tags replicate nested folders this way. I have two insurance policies. One is for car A & one is for Car B. On my hard drive, they may be stored like this: Cars --> Car A --> insurance policies --> Car A insurance policy repairs --> repair documents here license/tags --> license/tag info here Car B --> insurance policies --> Car B insurance policy repairs --> repair documents here license/tags --> license/tag info here Or maybe I store them this way so that all my insurance policies (home, life, auto, medical) are stored in the same folder: Insurance policies --> Cars --> Car A --> Car A insurance policy Car B --> Car B insurance policy Health -- > husband wife children Both of these situations can be replicated in Evernote by using these tags: insurance policies car A car B Car A insurance policy is tagged "insurance policies" and "car A". Searching on those two tags will give the same exact results as if I had the documents stored in sub folders on a hard drive. I don't even need to apply a "car" tag The reason tags are much more flexible than sub folders is because let's say the policy is for both cars. To use sub folders, I'd need to have two copies of the document - one in the Car A sub folder & one in the Car B sub folder. But with tags, I simply have the one document & use all three tags, "insurance policies", "car A" and "car B'. When I want to find the insurance policy for Car A, I still just search on ""insurance policies" and "car A".
