What can I do with tags?

Tags let you add keywords to notes, making them easier to find and browse when you’ve got a lot of them. Use tags when a note might apply to more than one category or when you want to filter results in a certain notebook by a keyword. You could use tags to associate notes with categories, memories or locations.


  • Project management: Add a tag to identify the project state (active, next, completed) or to the spec number or feature.
  • Task management: Add a priority label to notes (p1, p2, p3).
  • Recruiting: Add a tag for the location of a position or the hiring manager (nyc, tokyo).
  • Research: Add a tag for the relevant company or project

Note: You can search or filter by any tags that your team has added to notes in business notebooks.
