So of course this is an open ended philosophical question aiming to pick your brain on how to use Dynalist more efficiently. Personally at least, my natural inclination to use tags for organization purposes, to have distinct topics or categories applied to each item irrelevant to their structural locations, so it’s possible to search across different locations in your notebook for related information, but as one can imagine the use of tags can get really messy and out of hand very quickly.
So why do you even need to use it if we can search full text already and tags and plain text are not that different in Dyanlist when being searched? Especially when you can bookmark each search, then from a search result perspective, what’s the advantage of using tags vs making sure the tag text (for example #plugin, or #privacy) already exist in the item itself (“plugin”, “privacy”, etc.)?
Also read above that it’s better to use Object tags rather than topic tags and embed the topic relationship in your note structure for better searching experience, which makes a lot of sense. So in my mind the only time you should use #tags are when a important nature of the item/article is neither included by the text itself, or implied by the parent note structure. So for example @people.
of course there are other reasons for using tags to expand Dynalist functions for example #15min to track time, etc. which are not in the scope of this discussion.
This is meant as an mental exercise to see I can simplify my note taking routine further and make searching easier, any thoughts are appreciated!
