I’m trying to implement the idea of using tags as a method for sub-grouping notes in a folder. For example - I have a folder with several notes for my course MATH123, and I want to see all the notes in there that are relevant to assignment 2. So I use the tag #A2 to quickly see which notes are for that assignment.
In Evernote you can see a list of your notes and the tags that are attached to those notes, so that works fine for this idea. However, I can’t really find an easy way to do it in Obsidian. I’ve tried:
- The plugin “File Tree Alternative” supports filtering a note view by tag, but it doesn’t support tags in the YAML header.
- Using search I can use “path:… tag:#A2”, but this isn’t easy.
An idea I had was that I could use Dataview to create a table that I can quickly modify to show me notes based on path and tag. I’m not certain if this is possible, but it sounded better than using search.
A second idea was if there was a way to right-click a folder and say “Search in folder”, but a search through community plugins didn’t bring back anything obvious to do this.
Does anyone have any other suggestions for what I’m trying to do?
