Inherit tags from ancestors

Hello,

I see a lot of use cases where it would be interesting that when searching for a tag, the children of a matching item are returned also. This would prevent from having to tag all items of a related subject.
It should probably be an option.

Thanks for this great product.

In document search, if there are any children for a node, they are in the results, but they are collapsed. In global search it will zoom in on the node so you can see if it has children or not and use the back button to return to the search.

Unfortunately I did just notice that the wrong bullet seems to be displayed, so it’s not immediately apparent that the bullet has children for you to be able to see (both in document at global search). Occasionally some bullets display as they should but that seems to be the exception rather than the rule.

Butlermatt is right (for that example you gave)
however I understand your point.
the already petition of “autotag” would include this too

thats right, the bullets dont show
that makes the results screen much less useful

paul, we now have ancestor collection. check the discussion here.
