Folders could potentially be created as smart folders that are based on tags. So anything under “Medical” is tagged medical. Folder is purged, but you have a “Smart Folder” that is only a UI layer of anything that is tagged “Medical”. It would also work for multiple tags, as well, I would think. I don’t know how it would be designed, however this has become a pretty mainstream approach recently to tagging.
🚧 Vault Item Labels (tagging items in vault - this functionality will replace folders in a future update)
As much as I look forward to this change, I’m a little worried about tags replacing folders. First, I expect tags to be many, and messy, so it wouldn’t be very practical to use them as folders. At the moment I have 4 folders and it’s easy to navigate my vault this way, but I expect to have many more tags. Ideally, I’d like to keep both folders and tags and have them work together. I also wonder how the transition will be made. I hope that the existing folders won’t just get deleted and at least get converted to tags.
Rest assured they won’t be deleted! Folders is confusing for many users currently, and will be converted to tags that can be used to easily organize items in a similar way but with far more functionality.
Is this mean this feature is nearly completed and will be rolled out soon?
Hey Jason I don’t have an ETA but we will announce on our channels when more information is available, thanks for checking in
