A desperate case for tags/labels, not folders! Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
Hi all,

I must admit one thing: Gmail changed my life. And one of the neat things that changed my life are labels. Finished the dilemma of the hierarchical organisation by folders. Long live the flexibility and meaningfulness of labeling my mails.

Well the same goes with actions. There is always a needless decision to be made when organising folders and trying to deal with conflicting hierarchies. Labels (or tags) offer the flexibility to see your data as you wish to and to give it the extra searchable organising info that you need.

Really, when I see folders, spots start growing all over me and I always have to remember in what folder I put this other folder that has that project.

So here is a proposal.

- all actions can be labeled (so far with folders, only projects can be organised)
- projects would have one or more default labels, which like default contexts would be added to any new action in that project
- use the same way to browse labels than (or tags as they call it)
- adapt search and views so that they include labels.

Please, pleeeeease, consider this!
