The last big feature we need to add for DEVONthink 2.0 is the long-promised tagging. Of course we already receive many questions about how to prepare for tagging, how to enter tags so that they end up correctly when we activate the new feature in one of the forthcoming public betas. So here’s a hint:
In DEVONthink 2.0 groups and tags will be interchangable. So whatever group an item is located in, its group name will be assigned as a ‘tag’ to the item. Replicate an item into two or more groups and all of them will be assigned. BTW: This is just what happens in the Finder when you move a file into a folder — the folder is assigned to the file. Technically tags and folders have always been the same.
So if you want to prepare for tagging in DEVONthink 2.0 next to your already built group structure, create a top-level group e.g. named ‘Tags’. Add groups to it that represent the tags. Then move or replicate the documents into these groups.
