I’ve ditched Evernote as a knowledge manager and I’m now trying out DEVONthink for macOS and iOS.
Thus, I’ve been pondering the difference between groups (folders) and tags, and when either should be used. Arno had an interesting take:
Think of the group structure in a DevonThink database as a catalog rather than as the place where your documents are stored
Use DevonThink’s groups to tag your documents by topic
Use DevonThink’s tags to flag documents for special purposes
Using groups to store documents by topic and tags to actualize them while working on projects is something I’ll try from now on.
