Using tags to connect cards

Tagging cards can help you delve deeper into a topic you're interested in and see how else it could be connected to a related subject.

Cards can be tagged across all boxes – helping you make connections between what might otherwise appear to be separate things.

As James Webb Young wrote in his creativity book A Technique for Producing Ideas, an idea is just a new combination of things that already exist – and that having ideas depends largely on the ability to see relationships.

It's why we've created a way for you to tag cards in addition to organising them in stacks or sorting the order they appear in inside your box.

The connections you find might not be as literal as the ones you make when groups cards within the same box – resulting in new unexpected connections.

And, if you're a team user of Shooglebox, as well as tagging your own cards you can add tags to cards created by people in your team, making it easier to gather different insights and perspectives – and inspiring you and the people around you to think out of the box!
