Would be a huge timesaver.

Would you mind describing a bit how you would expect this to function? Would it be an already existing Tag that gets assigned, or do you mean to create a new Tag?

+1 For this/multiple tags with ";"  I would imagine autocreating if it doesn't already exist

For example, the way Dynalist (https://dynalist.io) works is you type a hashtag as you're writing.

If you type #, a menu is displayed with the hashtags already used in the note (or child and parent in the context of TB)

If you type a tag and it already exists elsewhere, it'll re-use the existing tag.

If you type a tag and it doesn't exist, it'll automatically create it for you.

Hashtag Search Bug?

I recently bookmarked this discussion in one of my test brains, and I just now discovered the following term brings up no results in the search:
> #tagname

I thought TB10 search was set to pick up special characters, so I'm wondering if this is evidence of a new search bug?

Metta,

That is actually the expected behavior. TheBrain search does not see the human readable name of the URL. Though this is a documented feature request, and I have added your voice to it.

On a positive note, I'm happy to report that the search does find the hashtag character. It found "#test" within a note while I tested this.

Thanks for your prompt feedback, Sean -- and thanks for adding my name to the aforementioned feature request.

Thanks also for confirming that my search term (#tagname) can be found when placed in a note.

However, with continued testing, I discovered that when my hashtag search term is placed in a thought name, it cannot be found in the search. (Hash tags in thoughts labels do, however, show up in the search.)

In light of this, can another feature request be added for the search to read hashtags in thought names?

This would make hashtags accessible in all 4 places:
> thought names
> thought label
> thought notes
> human readable name of attached URLs

Any feedback from TB team on this feature request?

Metta,

Thank you for bringing this up.  I've confirmed that special characters do work for searching on thought tags or thought names (such as "@matt" or "#urgent") but these same instances in a Thought Note do not show up.

Documented.

Thanks,
Matt

Thanks for your feedback, Matt. However, I confess to being confused now.

Based upon closer review in my brain installation, it looks like hash tags DO show up in the following locations (as I indicated previously):
> thought notes
> thought labels

However, these same hash tags DO NOT show up here:
> URL names <== Request Documented
> thought names

This is contrast to what you reported, specifically that:
> hash tags DO NOT show up notes
> hash tags DO show up in thought names

Is it possible we are getting different results in our searches? Or am I missing something?

What results are others getting when searching on hash tags in the following locations?
> thought name
> thought label
> thought note
> attachment name
