WorkFlowy in Action: Stephen Pickering’s Rules for Effective Tagging

Stephen Pickering sent us an email explaining his approach to tagging in WorkFlowy. We thought it was pretty interesting, so we might as well share it. 

Stephen puts a list of all his tags at the top for quick reference and filtering. After his tags he lays out all the rules he uses to organize his WorkFlowy. This layout allows him to be both consistent in organizing his lists and quick in accessing them. Here’s what the top of his WorkFlowy document looks like: 

In the relatively near future, we’ll make Stephen’s job easier by having WorkFlowy compile tag lists for you automatically. No technology, though, can free you from choosing a system to organize yourself and sticking to it, and Stephen’s rules seem pretty useful.

WorkFlowy in Action: Irene Yen’s Desk

Irene Yen wrote us: ”Thought I’d share a neat way I started using Workflowy at my office. I keep my to-do list on my iPad next to my desktop. As I get things done, I check it off. I’ve shared my lists with co-workers and listed different assignments by “@John” or “due #Monday.” The post-it notes on my desk are being transferred over and becoming obsolete…”

Thanks Irene!

P.S. If you wants to send us images, videos or articles about how you use WorkFlowy, we’d love to share them with other WorkFlowy users.
