I suggest you ...

Better note organization: sub-notebooks/folders, labels/tags, etc.

Provide a way to better organize notes, beyond the current notebook organization. This could be done with nested notebooks or folders, labels for notes, sections, chapters, etc.

    I answered that any kind of sub-folder organization is better than none. Hope this could be delivered soon, though i would not bet on it.

    I received an answer from the developer. Thanks Andrew.

    Hi Erickson,

    Thanks for contacting us. I'm sorry for the lack of response on the feedback site. We're definitely not ignoring your feedback, it's super helpful. We're aware that providing a better way to organize notes is currently the most voted idea. This is something we've been investigating for a while. One problem is that there's not a clear solution. The two most obvious solutions are nested folders or labels/tags. They both have their strengths and weaknesses. We've also explored many other solutions (e.g. nested labels, notebook sections, etc.). Unfortunately, no matter what we choose, we're not going to make everyone happy.

    I'm a perfectionist, which unfortunately means that I often take a long time to get something implemented because I want to make sure it's the best possible decision/solution. There are a lot of consequences that arise from adding nesting, labels, etc., especially with regards to other features we want to have, such as sync.

    All that said, this is definitely something that is a high priority, but I don't know yet when we'll have an update. We've got a lot of different things going on right now and we're a pretty small team (right now it's just me full-time).

    Please let me know if you have any other questions or comments. If you want to provide any additional details about what you think is the best solution for organizing notes, I'd be happy to hear it.

    I come back here once in semester to see if this thread got at least a response from developers but it's no use. Why don't guys simply answer us here? That's a total absurd and the reason why I do not use this app anymore. I suggest the more than a 1000 people that tagged this idea do the same. Shame on you developers.

    You know what would be a GREAT gift?! Sub-notebooks!!!!! This is, by far, the MOST used app on ALL my devices. It's the one I couldn't do without. But it's becoming more of a pain in the ass to use because finding and organizing notes gets more difficult!

  • J Michael Williams commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Please GOD YESSS!!!! I am now at over 100 notes and it's so hard to keep things organized. Then I have notes for my primary university where I work that I want to keep separate from the university I adjunct with separate from my personal notes separate from church notes. While sure I can give each a tag but there is nothing that color codes or truly separates notes.

    Aren't you still spupporting subfolder? You guys MUST remember the absence of this feature is expelling your customer away. Why this elementary and basic feature is absent for this exellent product. This is real DISASTER

    Is there any development going on to support this?
    This missing feature really prevents me from using squid ...

    Subfolders would be a godsend. Any way to better organize than just having a notebook for every single thing and that's it.

    Gostaria de ter capas de caderno de cores como a página inicial, em vez de notas recentes. Seria mais fácil encontrar meus cadernos e parecer mais organizado.

  • Matthias commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I support this, with the current limited organization it gets chaotic very fast.

  • N commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I would like to have color notebook covers as the home page instead of recent notes. It would be easier to find my notebooks and look more organized.

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It would be nice to have the possibility to organize university notes into folders and subfolders, and not only notebooks.

    Thank you!

    Just a folder level to put the notebooks would make a big difference.
    Tags would be nice too.
    I really need this bad !!

    Sub-folders would be nice. Multible note export at the same time for example to google drive, frustrating to export every note indivitually.

  • DanM commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Have the developers commented on this? Seems like a straightforward solution to a bunch of problems

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This would be very helpful for me as a teacher, so I can organise my notes into topics for my classes.

    Instead of List of Notebooks on Main Screen I would prefer an Open Dialog with Explorer/Tree View. And a List of Documents would be much more clearly then the Preview-Thumbnails.

    I curently use squid for all my college note taking and pdf reading/editing. However, this means I have over 20 folders and it gets messy. I would like to create a 2017 Spring Semester folder that then has a folder within it for each class and, if necessary, additional subfolders within each class folder. This would reduce 20 folders down to 3.

    Being able to section notebooks is an extremely important to me. It is a beyond inconvenient, having millions of mini notebooks or scrolling through pages of unsortable individual notes.

    This makes or breaks a none taking app for me as I like to use electronic notebooks to keep my notes organized as I have a tendency to constantly lose information within pages of paper notebooks.
