  1. Using Tags as Pseudo Notebooks (pNB) [Note: At the urging of another user, I have started a new topic for this subject. I posted the below originally in Jan 2016. I am in the process of rewriting, fine-tuning this article, but for now the below is a copy of my original post at Using Tags as Pseudo Notebooks . The basic design of pNB has not changed.] My knowledge of how to use Tags continues to evolve. This has been largely due to limitations Evernote has placed on Notebooks. So, the question is: How does one make the best use of the tool they have? Notebooks (NB) are limited to 250. Tags are virtually unlimited at 100,000. Tags can have a hierarchical structure of Parent Tag / Child Tag, much like the folders that you see on your computer. So, if we can model NBs as Tags, then we can effectively have unlimited NBs and sub-NBs. One of the most appealing features of Notebooks (and folders) is how they visually appear. But what if we can do the same visual layout with Tags? Stay tuned to learn how. I use tags in two fundamentally different ways: Pseudo Notebooks -- use in place of where you would normally use a notebook. This includes sub-notebooks. Note Categorization -- traditional use of tags to categorize the entity, which can have multiple tags. Can be used across Notebooks, or in this case, across pseudo NBs. Using Tags as Pseudo Notebooks Tags can be organized in hierarchies (meaning Parent-Child relationship). So we can achieve the appearance of Notebooks and sub-notebooks, Without going into a lot of detail at this point, I have created a number of Tags which serve as pseudo Notebooks. Note that all of the pseudo NBs, actually tags, all have a prefix of ".NB.", which makes it easy to identify which tags are pseudo NBs, and will cause them to appear at the top of the Tag list. You can, of course, use any prefix that works for you. One great advantage of using tags as pseudo NBs, is that you can assign multiple pseudo NBs to the same Note. Can't do that with actual NBs. Each Note can belong to only one NB. So this allows me, for example, to assign multiple pseudo NBs of .NB.IT, .NB.Business, and .NB.Personal to the same Note, which is the asset record for a new Mac, used in both business and personal activities. Now when I search or filter on any of the 3 pseudo NBs it will find the asset record of my Mac. I now have all of my pseudo NBs that appear at the top of my Tag list, and the pseudo NBs can, and do, have sub-pseudo NBs. Here's an example: As a result, I now have a need for ONLY 3 main Notebooks, plus any Notebooks needed for sharing or mobile offline use: Please feel free to post any questions or comments. EDIT: Mon, Feb 29, 2016 at 12:36:27 PM CST For more discussion on pseudo notebooks, see Using Tags as Pseudo Notebooks (original post) Do you find lots of notebooks or notebook stacks useful?
  2. I have a pretty large way of managing my tags/ nested tags. I begin by creating categories of tags - herein my example is "Tags by Partners" Then I nest tags within those categories. However one thing I noticed is that when I nest them with the categories I made, they are not organized or sorted in an alphabetic manner - And there is no way to organize or sort them according to my own preference. I am using a Macbook Pro - OS Sierra by the way.
  3. I've looked over the 33 page long thread regarding more deeply nested notebooks and some other threads. The only posts from verified Evernote employees that I saw only offered alternatives to notebook nesting (which is usually the hierarchical tagging system), which seem to have been clearly identified as useful, but not identified as negating the use of a more "folder" or "directory" like hierarchy, which also clearly seems to be desired by many many users. Personally, I'm at the point where I will be looking for an alternative, or making my own.. probably using Github, and making a small OSX wrapper app that is just a text editor along side the repository so I can make many generations of happy little folders. I'm sad to say that, because Evernote is superb in every way except this one, but this is the one I need most. My question is to Evernote, what are your reasons for not implementing this feature?
  4. As you can see in the pic, I have a notebook that is nested called GTD (noted by the arrow). I cannot recreate this structure! Was it that Evernote used to support nested folders so mine is a holdover from the old days, and now they only have Stacks? I don't like stacks b/c they don't show up at the top like notebooks, they only show up under the tags section. Is there a way to make more of what I have here?
  5. I have an issue with searching within nested tags. Windows client. Version 6.4.2.3788 (303788). Premium user. See my two attachments. First attachment is the search bar from when I select parent and nested tags. Second attachment is a nested tag structure within my evernote account. . When I search (while the parent and nested tags are selected), the search defaults to a general search and I get results that are not in the 9 tags that are selected. I only want to see results that are within the tags that are selected, not the keyword I search on for every note in my account. I've tried the "tag:" parameter and it does the same thing. If I select a tag that doesn't have child tags under it and search on a keyword, it only searches notes with that tag, as expected behavior. I think I found a bug searching within nested tags? Am I doing something wrong?
  6. I'm trying to organize my notes hierarchically. First I tried with nested folders but it's not possible to do so as Evernote only allows one sub-folder level. After doing a search the answer people gave was to use tags as they are possible to nest this way. Great I thought, then I opened my mobile app, then I discover that it's not possible to get a hierarchical view of your tags on mobile the way you do in the desktop app. You only see Notebooks and their folder structure, you also can only set Notebooks to offline view not a tag. So the question is, how do I get a hierarchical structure and overview on to work on both desktop and mobile?
  7. Need the ability to NEST notes and notebooks; started abandoning Everynote as a result. Been using Evernote for a few years. Now using it heavily and tags aren't cutting it and wastes more time trying to organize and manage tags and stacks. Please do not respond explaining the benefits of tags, keywords, search, stacks. Keep the benefits of tags, keywords, search, stacks ~ just not at the expense of the nested hierarchy. No links to related articles, tutorials, demos, blogs on how to use tags and how to organize. ---- Keep the tags, but please allow nesting. Notebook and stacks, tags...aren't getting the job done. One can say it is mindset, need to change the mindset and adjust to a new way of organization. Spent obscene amount of time over the last 2 years trying to use and adjust to tags; reading blogs, best practices, research etc..even looking for 3rd party add ons, iOS apps etc. The more content added, the more content that gets lost... the larger volume of data the harder it is to find... must rely on memory for search terms, tags etc. Nesting allows an easy way to browse and find content. Also, you can train a group of people to work within hierarchy, but not tags.
  8. The handy feature of nesting tags is useless if we don't see the tags nested when we click on the little tag icon in the desktop version (which just shows you a list of tags organized alphabetically). - Show them nested there as well! - Show tags that are nested on the mobile versions (iOS) as well! We're supposed to use tags but when we organize them the organization is all lost when actually using the notes (on the desktop within a notebook as well as on mobile)! Really looking forward to more attention on the organizational part of our external brains and not just on products and markets and brands.... Keep up the good work!
  9. Hello, first time poster, new Evernote user here. But, as I am getting used to my new Evernote system (which is a sort of stripped down GTD I guess), I noticed that when I have nested tags, the note count total shows up as "(0)" for the parent tag. Is there a way to change this to reflect the total note count of all child tags? Obviously not a dire change, but one that seems simple enough depending on how you've implemented your tagging system.
  10. Hello, I'm new to Evernote...we'll I've had it a while but never had the time to look into it properly but now I'm all set up & ready to rock! MY PROBLEM: Keeping (new) tags tidy. My system uses nested tags with various non-alphanumeric characters to keep everything in order. The problem is that there will always be new 'random' tags; tags I might not use that often or do not belong to my main groups. POSSIBLE SOLUTION: The ability to set up an automatic default parent tag for all new tags. Very similar to the "By default, place all new notes into the following notebook" option. This would keep the tags tidy & out of sight - ready for a weekly clean! Thanks...and thanks for a great product!
