Add a tag to a note

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.

Note: In Evernote Teams, creating new tags automatically adds them to the searchable tag library, available to the entire team.
