Tags

Tags are the best way to keep notes about various topics organized in Kernels. There’s no limit to how many unique tags you can have in Kernels – go ahead, create as many as you like.

You do not need tags to use Kernels. By default, Kernels will store your information in chronological order from newest to oldest in the My Notes feed. But tags can help create that structure, allowing you to quickly find previously saved data.

If you decide to use tags, take a few minutes to determine what you would like to use Kernels to save. Tags are structured in a parent/child structure. But you do not need to add child tags. You can create a parent tag only.

Examples:

Single Layer

  • Tag: Cookie Recipes
  • Tag: Indian Recipes

Dual-Layer

  • Parent Tag: Recipes
  • Child Tag: Cookies
  • Child Tag: Indian
