Evernote has an interesting feature: if you email a note to your evernote account, you can automatically have evernote file it in the proper notebook simply by putting @notebookname in the subject line.
I know that I cannot email notes into Drafts but the idea of automatic syntax generated tags is interesting.
I would certainly never use @ as a marker for a tag, but let’s say that a text contains //greg;, drafts would scan the note and automatically add the tag greg.
With Bear, it’s possible to automatically add a ‘greg’ tag, simply by typing #greg anywhere in the text. The idea is extremely interesting and useful. In practise, it’s a disaster with Bear because any text containing hashtags creates tags. It’s just a question of using the right syntax which is complicated enough and not commonly found in texts.
This would accelerate workflow because there are many situations where I create a draft, and then have to enter the tags manually instead of just saving automatically and let Drafts do the tagging.
There are other situations for example I use Popclip a lot with Drafts Mac.
If I select text in any application → popclip → create Draft (something I do 10 times a day), I then have to go to Drafts and start fishing for the newly created Draft to add tags which involves exiting the workspace I was working it, or clicking on recent drafts etc.
In general, I think that the whole process of tag creation slows down workflow and is a small weakness of Drafts.
