    Looking forward to Fiona’s next webinar. By the way, tagging works in OneDrive, just not as conveniently. I add them via the file properties. Also, if one puts a hashtag at the beginning of a tag, you can distinguish it from other words in the index. That’s important with surnames such as Wall, Green, etc. that are also common words.

    Love it Fiona! Thank you for pulling this together. I am off and running with my digital folder structure. The tags is definitely something I will add in as I slowly go through my 999 – Delete When Empty folder and I particularly loved the tip on the blackhole! YES I have one!! Very helpful, can’t wait for the next webinar

    Great organization, Fiona! I was headed the right direction with naming my files, but you got me there a whole lot faster than the speed I was traveling in and a whole LOT further with the tagging! Thank you so much!!!
