  1. Don't reinvent the wheel! Use metadata systems that work!

    Your application has great potential. But...

    Do not use the file name to store metadata! File names should not contain any user generated information. Storing metadata has numerous problems: security, privacy, non-portability, just to name a few.

    If you are going to support every kind of file, then you should use what is already there. Audio, video, image and document files already contain metadata. You have to read that metadata and import it to your application. Don't force the user to reenter all of it.

    Besides format specific metadata, there's also multiformat metadata. It's called XMP. It's even an international…

  3. OCR-Engine Integration - Make PDFs searcheable, Autoconvert Pics to PDF, Ect.

    As there are many free and OS libarys for OCR available, this would be a great and very promising feature!
    For larger amounts of PDFs/Scanned Documents in picture file formats, a batch/bulk OCR and pic to PDF conversion would be essential, especially for the many ppl here who want to use it as DMS!
    A full text search function can integrate with this OCRed content!

  4. Tag hierarchy

    It would be nice if tags could be added in hierarchy. Eg. if I add a tag "daughter" to picture, the tag "family" would also be present (depending on the hierarchy of tags of course :) ).

  5. Create 'QuickTag' Groups and/or be able to select multiple tags at once

    When you want to add multiple tags to a file or files, right now you have to individually select each tag and apply it to the file. I think what could be more efficient is to create 'QuickTag' groups that would allow you to apply every tag in the group to a file or files. This could make it much easier to apply commonly used tags. Another approach would be just to add a function to the current 'Tag Group Operations' menu to apply all the tags in that Tag Group to the file or files. Alternatively, you could accomplish…

  6. Treat date/time tags as first-class citizens

    It would be nice if TagSpaces treated the "date/time" tags as actual dates rather than plain-text tags. For example, if I have 3 files:

    file1[tag 20131231].pdf
    file2[some-tag 2014].pdf
    file3[some-other-tag 20140512].pdf

    It would be nice if TagSpaces automatically determined those were date tags and allowed you to do special things:

    1. Search for all files within a particular date range. For example, searching for all files from 2014-01-01 through 2014-12-31 would return both file2 and file3. Searching from 2014-07 through 2014-12 would return only file2, etc...
    2. Show the first date/time tag as a separate column in the list perspective.

    This would help…

  7. Explorer context menu integration

  10. Automatically add tags to the Tag Library - Not just Current Folder Tags

    When you have a lot of tags that you have added directly to the files it would be good if TagSpaces then adds it to the tag library so that it is accessible in whatever folder you are in (not just the Current Folder Tags although that is useful).

  12. Ability to use shift and ctrl key when selecting files

    When selecting multiple files it would be nice to select the first file and then shift+select the last file and have all the files in between selected. Also, the ability to ctrl+select files like in a typical file system.

  13. Auto-save notes while editing (explicit 'Save' not required)

    Auto-save has become common on desktop notetaking and editing applications, because of the risk of app crashes, OS crashes, running out of battery on laptops, etc. OpenOffice and Word now have this by default, and even more obscure apps like Inkscape offer it in Settings. Same for web apps like Google Drive.

    It's actually hard to force myself back into the motions of hitting Ctrl+S every few minutes in TagSpaces; would prefer to have it save automatically as I type.

  14. 'Time Planner' window mode.

    Present items containing 'date/time' tags in an 'agenda' or 'calendar' view. Tagspaces as a weekly planner!

    The idea is to leverage date/time tags with an extension to the existing Smart Tag system (which is already good and should remain).

    When I create a note or download a file that I want to work on next Tuesday, for example, I could tag with the date and the time (and possibly a duration, such as '2 hours').

    Then I could click on 'agenda' and view a 5 or 7-day calendar-style planner, where I can scan all of the items that I've scheduled…

  15. Problem using tag to Autocad file about changing the filename

    Dear All,
    Thank you for inventing this software.
    I like this file manage system very much.

    but I have some problems as below:

    Q1
    I am a Autocad file (.dwg) user. I have many link between the file, for example, in A.dwg file will have some xref files B.dwg, C.dwg inside A.dwg. but this tagspaces system is changing the filename for the tag, so every time after i make some tags on B.dwg and C.dwg, when i open A.dwg, I need to relocate the xref B.dwg and C.dwg.

    I have many autocad files. if I use this tagspaces system to…

  16. Allow setting links between files.

    So that I can refer in one file to another file and browse to it by clicking on the link. At least for html files, this should be easy to realise.

  17. Tag support for multiple word names

    Hi,
    Firstly thanks for this awesome app. I was looking for an evernote alternative that i can use on linux. And surprisingly, although not mentioned by many linux blogs, Tagspaces is the closest one can get to evernote.
    I could have used evernote using Wine, but i will prefer apps that have versions for Linux.

    Tagspaces does almost all the jobs.

    Only niggle, that kept me from shifting permanently to Tagspace, is the inability to add multiple words in the same tag.
    I am a medical physician. For example if you need to add a tag ' Blood sugar' in…

  18. allow multi-select files to be enqueued in the native application (send to a playlist)

    Allow for a selection of files to be enqueued in the default program - basically would allow multiple files to be sent to a media player as a playlist selection.

  20. WebDAV Locations

    Add a WebDAV location functionality so that the Web version is even more accessible.

    My WebDAV server is on the same host but a different file location (/volume1/shares vs. /volume1/web) and port number to the webserver so need the ability to add it like this https://hostname:5006/share.

    I understand this may be a limitation of the browser but would be a great thing if you can get it working.

    PS this is hosted on a Synology NAS so have limitations on what I can change.
