  • tag files, links, notes, email and more...
  • attachment notes or other items (1 to 1 linking)
  • intuitive Finder-like user interface
  • built-in note taking functionality
  • live previews
  • manual reordering
  • can be used as note manager (notes are stored as separate files)

What's new in TagoMan

I've finally had some time with TagoMan, and think it has a lot to offer the tagger. First, a small point, but I'd change the name "Reorganization Manager" to just "Tag Manager." You don't really "organize" your tags there; that's were you find and modify your tags. I'd called it "Tag Manager." My two bits. :) One of the advantages of TagoMan over say, Tagit (another fine and *free* program) is that you can tag files, e-mails, whatever, just about anywhere through either a hot-key or from the menubar. With Tagit, you have to drag the file you want to tag to the Tagit dock icon, and of course, this means Tagit is only for *files.* The scope of TagoMan is much broader and therefore more useful, which is no slight at all to Tagit. I had no trouble finding or retaggin any of the files I tagged through the "Reorganization Manager." I'd give TagoMan a solid 4 or even 5 stars on functionality. But I'd love to see some interface enhancements to make TagoMan even more useful. In the menubar, I'd love to see the addition of a list of tags I'm now using...either as a pop-up list in the menu, or as a menu choice that would take me to some place in the "Reorganization (Tag) Manager" where all my currently used tags are shown, as a list or cloud. Then, instead of having to do a search for tags, I could just click on a tag, and TagoMan would show me all items tagged with that tag. Another advantage of this enhancement is this: I sometimes forget what in the heck I tagged something as. If I tagged something long ago, will it show up in "Recent Tags?" I want TagoMan to keep track of the tags I've used in a more global way, not just when I'm doing tagging by using the "recent tags" list. Another advantage in having the tags avaiable in the menubar is that I could select an item, and e-mail, or calendar event, etc, and then click on the menubar to select from a list of tags and just tag it that way. No need for me to see a dialog box unless I want to create and add a new tag. None of these suggestions are criticisms of the program, which works great. It's just when you start using and relying on a utility like this, you begin to think of ways to speed up the process. Anyway, kudos to the author...he or she has created a nifty free program that has become part of my workflow.

I really like it. The best-integrated OpenMeta tag implementation I've come by. An integrated dedicated global tag search interface à la Spotlight would be fantastic. Only thing that does not work for me: The "recently used" section in the tagging dialog seems somewhat buggy: Tags used do not persist between sessions and the ones that do appear do so doubly sometimes. Still: absolutely top!

the current download link is incorrect. however, i discovered that the link to the developer works and there is a link from the developer's site to download the current version. so whoever is responsible for setting the download link should update it... i've tried this a few times and like it so far. i need to use it more before rating. but so far so good. i like the fact that i don't have to start a standalone program to make tags and it just opens a pop-up in the finder or program i'm using and the regular spotlight search finds it...

Something has gone wrong with TagoMan2. It used to work. Now with this latest release 2.0.4 it does nothing. The service menu does nothing in Finder. The menu bar actions do nothing. The automator actions aren't included in the download package.

The problem is most probably caused by one of tag names in the 'recently used tags' is perhaps too long, containing binary characters or is 'corrupted' in some other way. Since this list is shared by all OpenMeta application it is possible this tag came in from outside of TagoMan itself. The solution is to 'clear the recently used tag list' in the TagoMan's preferences

Couldn't figure out how this thing works. Selected a file, invoked TagoMan, selected tag, clicked on "tag selection" from the actions drop-down menu, and nothing was tagged. Tried several times, and nothing was tagged. Searched if application offered a different approach. Tried whatever I could find, and nothing was tagged. Quit TagoMan, invoked tagger, selected tag, and a file was tagged.

Can't wait to try this. If it works, it's nothing short of revolutionary in terms of being able to connect information all over you Mac in different programs. Right now, a lot of programs support what DevonThink Pro calls "item links -- it looks something like this in DevonThink: x-devonthink-item://28B5537C-C625-497B-81FB-F475036F4E8D and if you paste and then click on that link in another program, like MacJournal, or OmniFocus, or EagleFiler, or iCal, or BusyCal, you are immediately taken to that item in DevonThink. Or in MacJournal, you can do a "Copy URL of Entry" which makes a link of your entry that looks like this: macjournal://%23InBox/Test%20Entry In many other Mac programs, you can paste this link and then when you click on it, you are taken directly to the MacJournal entry you got the "url" of. Using this method, I can link any item in my DevonThink Pro 2.0 database, or in MacJournal, or OmniFocus, with an entry in iCal or BusyCal and vice versa. EagleFiler does this with a "Copy Record Link" which produces this kind of paste-able link: x-eaglefiler://open?library=~/Documents/PIM%20Data/Eagle%20Filer%20Main%20Library/Eagle%20Filer%20Main%20Library.eflibrary&recordGUID=szU02WIaRAuibS9Ez-bZCQ So, the ability to create dynamic links is already available in good Mac programs. But TagoMan 2.0.1 promises to take this kind of functionality to another level of connectivity and integration across your Mac apps. The "front end" looks good and I love the idea of having dynamically connected data sets across multiple programs. I can't wait to give this a thrashing this weekend and see how it works out in practice. I'll post my impressions here when I'm more familiar with TagoMan 2, but I just wanted to say that the *idea* of this program is terrific and is something I wish was built-in to the Mac OS itself (more than just having item links/urls, as we have now.) I'm really curious to see how the implementation is in real life.

The upcoming update will be able to tag DEVONthink records. Sorry about the eaglefiler and macjournal - these apps are not scriptable so I could not extract information I would need to support them. HINT: it is possible to refer to a tag by using a link e.g. tag://MyTag. This way you can link to group of files

Thanks for the heads-up on DevonThink Pro. It's the absolute center of my information universe, so being able to link to it would be HUGE for this particular user. Sorry to hear that EagleFiler and MacJournal can't be scripted by you....and thanks for the tip about linking to a group. Haven't had time to thrash TagoMan 2 as I had hoped this weekend, but will certainly get to it soon.

WOW..... This is actually a really nice Tagging APP. Select File put your TAGS on it done. The cool thing is the Tag window opens as a Save Pane within the application of the file type that is being tagged. The one thing that I thought was needed was a Refresh button when searching for similar Tags. Great work so far... Still needs some care on some interface scroll bars...But the interface design is really well thought out and Mac like.

You're using the same mechanism as Ironic Software and Gravity Applications. Why not conform to OpenMeta specifications instead of introducing non-standard attributes (tagoman_tags) and unnecessary prefixes (T4G) to the values? This is exactly why the OpenMeta project got started, so people don't have to (and hopefully wouldn't) try and roll their own attribs and values. 8^(

I would encourage you to look into using OpenMeta. There is a nice source code pile available if you want to use it, or since you've already written code to create tags using the same basic mechanism (extended attributes), perhaps just adjust the output to write OpenMeta-compatible tags. http://code.google.com/p/openmeta/ TagoMan seems to be a really useful app with a lot of promise. If it could read and write the OpenMeta tags I already have in place, it would probably find a way into my workflow in short order.
