I have seen other people ask for folders and read the responses and I understand why the tag system is superior.
Folders, however, have a feature that the current tag system doesn’t: Users can search by just clicking.
So I came up with this idea to make tags searchable with clicks only as well, and I made this crude edit to show what I think would be easy to code in:
Just a small button in the search bar with the tag icon that doesn’t feel intrusive, and gives us a menu when clicked.
The (scrollable?) menu would look something like this, it contains the user’s tags, and when the user clicks on the tags, they are auto-typed in the search bar. That’s it!
Not having to type would be a very small but also very welcome change for sure.
