Another layer of organization

Idea

Currently We can do the following only.

  • binder
    • notebook
      • note

 

I would like to do the following

  • Binder
    • Folder "NEW"
      • Notebook
        • Note 

 

There has been to many times where I need 1 more layer of organization. here is a good example.

I use evernote for home and work.

 

HOME

  • House
  • Kids
  • Things to do
  • ETC

Work (binder)

  • Client name (Folder)
    • client site (Notebook)
      • notes 

 

 

Overall I would like to go 1 more step to stay better organized

In the English version, Binder is called Stacks

No indication that Evernote is interested in adding another level of organization

The hierarchy is   Stack > Notebook > Note
with an alternative hierarchy of  Tag > Note
with Tags having an unlimited hierarchy and applying to the account instead of a specific notebook

Tag really isn't a part of the note hierarchy.  If that were the case Notebooks would own tags and they don't. Just sayin'....

Sure you could just use a tag, but that's not what I want to do here. I like to be digitally clean and organized. Tags are great when pulling key words from a bunch of stacks but not for what I want to do. 

Most of everyone I know that uses Evernote agree they want 1 more layer. Alot

of us like the old school way of filing. This is simply what we would like see happen. Not to mention it shouldn't be that hard to implement.

Definitely no ownership - my point was to get Tags into the discussion
I rewrote it as an alternative hierarchy

Evernote actually added 1 more layer with Stacks
I agree that many people are conditioned to the old way of filing (folder/subfolders)

I advise them to embrace Tags or look at an alternative product because I don't believe they will ever be happy with the Evernote setup
For myself, I'm happy not dealing with the folder/subfolder filing method
