This first build of Tabbles 5 features an extension of the auto-tagging rules that will allow you to search “inside” a file ( search the content of a file or document). When Tabbles files a file contains the keyword, the file is automatically tagged based on the rule(s) you set up. To achieve we’re using the awesome Tika library, the full list of files we can extract text from is here.

See how it works here:

This is how you create rules and run them:

Auto-tagging files based on content

Basically you can use this feature to:

  • Automatically tag any new file (document) you create, that contain a certain word.
  • Every time a file is created that contains a certain word, get a pop-up to notify.
  • Use Tabbles as data-mining tool: let it go through your hard-drives (local, shared on cloud ones), let it find files with important information and automatically categorize it for you.

Use the auto-tagging rules as a data-mining tool

Once you set one or more auto-tagging rules, targeting file content, you can then tell Tabbles: “now go and look through this whole disk and find any file that matches any rule”. You do it by right-clicking on a folder (disk) and clicking on Apply auto-tagging rules. Note: if you start from a disk in the left-pane tree, you will need to do: Right-click > Folder menu > Apply auto-tagging rules (as in the pic below).
