    Feature Request: A way to remind us to tag new files.

    A. When a new file is saved in My Documents. Pop Up a bubble above the system tray that will let you categorize the file if you click on it.
    B. If you fail to do that, the next time you open tabbles it would give you a list of files saved without categorization in My documents and the option to categorize them now if you click on them.
    C. Have it configurable which directories are monitored for new files. I’m sure some people would want to monitor network shares as well. But only for files that they had created(not other people).

    Thanks for a great product.

    Interesting… I guess it’s the first time we hear this.
    Did you have a look at the "auto-categorization rules" function? Please have a look at this thread and this post.

    With this feature you can:

    1) auto-assign a tabble (e.g. "my beloved docs") to a certain folder (and all it’s content, including subfolder).
    2) open the corrisponding tabble and do File menu > sort files by fewer tabbles.

    I understand it’s not exactly what you’re asking for, but I guess it’s a decent workaround…isn’t it?

    Best regards,

    Andrea

    I’ve always use the ‘files with fewer tabbles’ sort. A life-saver since I dump files from the thumb drive into a couple folders daily. Created a folder tabbles pointing to my incoming directories, sort by fewer tabbles (files with NO tabbles are at the top of the list. 🙂 ), and away I go. Been doing it this way since before we got rules, so no rule required… LOL

    If you want to pull multiple folders into one file window though… I guess you could create rules for each folder that assigns a "new" or "categorize me" tabble to new files. Once you categorize them you unlink the "new" tabble. (The new link/unlink panel coming will make it easier 😉 )

    If you’re just dealing with one directory then a folder tabble should do the trick just fine.
