Organizing Essays/Projects

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

My current organization system is to have two notebooks. An inbox and cabinet.

 

I use hierarchical tags to organize beyond that. 

For example, notes related to A.P. biology go into the tag A.P. biology, nested under highschool >> senior

However, how do you organize when you have an essay or something like that that requires multiple notes? I want to be able to filter and see all the notes within a certain assignment.

 

My current idea on doing this is under each class having tags for lecture notes, projects/papers, and homework.

 

Is there a better, less tag-intensive way of doing this?

 

Thanks for your help!

I also favour tags over notebooks.

For me, the next level in organization would be note title
For example:   Assignment x - First Section
                        Assignment x - Second Section
                        Assignment x - Third Section

I would suggest you initially consider using only an AP Biology tag.  The highschool and senior tags to me seem to be superfluous unless there is a reason why you need to have a separate highschool or senior collection of your notes.  There are some people that are definite taggers on this forum and all the power to them, but I think new users should start simply first and then add to the complexity if they find they want that later.

My suggestion would be, that you create a notebook for this assignment. Once you have done your research and handed in your Essay, you can file everything into your cabinet and rename the notebook for the next assignment

You could create a tag for each of your special assignments, perhaps preceded by a period.  Then add the tag .Special1 to each note and a simple search will find all the notes for the that assignment and a period entered into tag search will display all of your special assignments.  Putting the tags in a hierarchical structure can complicate tag searches.
