Sub Folders in Windows
Just looking for a new solution as Safewallet seems dead. The apps are important but in windows I really don't like the layout you offer. There seems to be no ability to have folders wiht sub folders. I am just ending up with everything down one side. I just want a few main folders e.g. credit cards, with sub categories.
Hello all, yes sub-labels must implemented, are very usefull. Please embed it on new windows app version.
On "Options" can select "Folders and sub folders" or "Labels" interface in Windows or Mobile.
Great idea, this together with my idea of drag & drop between labels would improve the desktop app
Nested tags = hierarchical labels
Gmail has implemented this in a very simple way for a long time.
In Gmail, “Financial” might be a tag (a tag is the same thing as a label. Gmail calls tags “labels”. I prefer the terminology “tags”.)
“Financial/Banks” is simply a different tag. The / character is fundamentally no different than any other character.
A few other tags for this example: “Financial/Investment”, “Financial/Credit Unions”, “Financial/Investment/Brokers”, “Financial/Investment/Trading Services”, “Financial/Tax/Tax Preparation”, “Financial/Tax/Accountants”.
In SOME situations, these tags are DISPLAYED hierarchically thus:
In particular, along the left side where the tags are all displayed, they are displayed in this nested format. THIS IS ONLY A DISPLAY FORMAT. The actual names of the individual tags are “Financial”, “Financial/Banks”, etc…. Gmail simply recognizes the / element of the tag FOR DISPLAY PURPOSES.
I think this is the right compromise between simplicity and flexibility.
SafeInCloud could implement this without too much additional work. It would ONLY affect how the tags are DISPLAYED under the hamburger menu in the left-hand pane. In all other situations where a passcard's tags are displayed, they would continue to be displayed just as they are now; i.e., the full text of each tag is shown.
For example, the “Bank of America” passcard would probably be tagged by the User with the following two tags: “Financial”, “Financial/Banks”. That's how they'd be displayed on the “Bank of America” passcard, full-text.
Tags would also be displayed alphabetically and full-text (i.e., NOT hierarchically) in the drop-down menu from which the user checkboxes the tags he wishes to apply.
I like this compromise because it doesn't introduce any new notions of folders or categories or the like. Everything is left up to the User. If the User wants to see her tags displayed in a nested list, then she has simply to name them in a nested fashion, with /'s. Users who don't use a hierarchical naming scheme for their tags would see nothing new.

Coming from KeePass I used this nested folders a lot so this suggestions gets my vote.

Folders or nested tags would be great. I don't want to have to name my tags something long like Work\Logins and Personal\Logins that just busies up the tag list. Also coming from SafeWallet where this functionality was greatly utilized.
Try labelling like this:
Without folders and sub folders the layout looks way to busy on opening.

Use the labels functionality...the search is very fast and searches within all the fields in the record for the desired string...folders aren't really necessary.
