File & folder hierarchy for improved notebook/folder management with better ui

Even though we have some category options, they are limited and the ui is not the best. Implementation of a folder hierarchy structure with a better ui (may be with tags/labels) will make managing notebooks much more easier. Lack of hierarchy on folder management is the biggest problem&missing feature of all note taking apps which are currently available and this difference will surely make GoodNotes the preferred one over other competitors.

    We’re happy to inform you that we have started working on a much better document management system. Tags and folders will likely be part of it.

        Tags not folders

        Document "2017 tax notes’ would show up under tags "taxes", "2017" and "family"

        I like to put any documents into more than one folder :-/ but it should be ever the same document. Can You pleas add a function like symlink? In folder X is the real document, and I can create a symlink and put it into folder Y...

        Excellent idea. I agree--better document management would be a big improvement. One of the few weaknesses of the current version.

        This is great news! I like GN, but this limitation is making me look at alternatives. However my preference would be to stay with GN. Is there an indication of when this will be available?

      • MartinS commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        oh yes
        The possibility to nest more folders would really benefit the use of GN.

        Would be great to also have the possibility to store non-pdf files, like Word or Excel

        I must be doing something wrong - I can already create a sub-category within a category... Also make significant use of bookmarks within a note book. - there is a good article on the blog that describes this

        For better organization, it would be great to have multiple levels of subcategories (a sub-category in a category in a main-category)

        Yes, I agree! My GN is starting to bloat, so I have started to investigate alternatives. I found some (out of respect for GN I wont mention them here). But I am still drawn to the simplicity and effectiveness of GN. But please. add sub-categories (folders) so we can get "Organizized"

        Agree in this. I've most enjoyed this in other apps by dragging one notebook onto another to create the folder (a la IOS). The few apps doing this make good use of the metaphor.

        In the Application you have just 2 hierarchic folders, but more hierarchic folders would be nice, so that you can organic your files better.
        Im using this Application as student, and it's so useful, cloud system is working perfect, but i have so many files on it, already organized in folders, that i need more hierarchic folders, to organize better the mass of files :-)

        PS: and of course thx a lot for the great App
