Solely use tags, no hierarchy used


i can’t seem to understand how i should use tags in DT. The context based tags simply don’t work for me. importing with a hierarchy is borderline masochistic as it takes forever to add it to a group in a large hierarchy.

now i was wondering if i could just use tags. no hierarchy, no groups. using a single group and store everything in that single group but assigning multiple tags to it.

obvious thing that does not seem to work is classification. DT seems to consider tags as second-class citizens when it comes to classification.

what other things won’t work? why can’t i just use tags without a hierarchy?
