Flexible tagging

#Tagging

Overview

In addition to local folders, tagging is another important way to organize your documents. In Document Node, each project can have arbitrary, infinite nested tags. The tagging system is a separate approach of managing your documents, but when you switch between the folders view and the tags view, you will get different perspectives of your project.

Being able to rename and restructure your tags gives you the maximum flexibility so that you can keep your tags up-to-date at any time. In Document Node it's simply done via drag-and-drop.

Quick tips

Here are some quick tips about how they work:

  • A tag is just a word with a pound sign
  • You can add multiple "#tags" anywhere in a document, separated by a space
  • Multi-word tags are wrapped in hashtags, like "#overseas travel#"
  • Quickly add existing tags with auto-complete
  • Tags View on the left sidebar allows you to filter all documents having that tag
  • Infinite nested tags by slashes, like "#Journal/2021/06" - this means "#Journal" will be the parent tag in Tags View
  • Easily refactor the tags tree in Tags View (renaming, deleting, or moving around by drag-and-drop)

Adding new tags

In your text editor, type a word with a pound sign, and it will become a tag and show in the Tags view on the left side automatically. You can add as many tags as you want.

If you include slashes in a tag, it becomes a nested tag, which will be shown as a tree structure in the Tags view.

Modifying or deleting any tags from a document will update the Tags view automatically.

Restructuring tags

In the Tags tree view, we are free to manage the tags with a project:

  • move or reorder tags via drop-and-drop,
  • rename one or more tags into a new tag,
  • delete all selected tags at once

All related documents will be updated automatically.
