Many of our users now use Email Tags to organize their emails instead of folders. We had recently updated Email Tags with a new search screen that was much easier to use. It had removed some functionality that we thought that users did not need. We were wrong.
Several users wrote to use requesting that we bring back the ability to Search for emails that have been tagged with more than one keyword e.g. find all emails that have the tags “Quote” and “Product X”.
We are happy to announce that we have restored this functionality in Version 1.1.5017. You can download the latest version of Email Tags from our website.
Setting up Email Tags to use the Old Search Screen
You can use the settings screen to decide whether you wish to use the new style Search screen (which does not support searching by multiple tags) or the old style search screen (which supports searching by multiple tags).
The new style screen is selected by default. To change this:
- Open Outlook
- On the ribbon, click on the Standss Outlook Addins tab
- In the EmailTags group, click More > Settings
- Tick the checkbox for “Allow (old style) searching for multiple tags”
- Click OK
Searching for emails with multiple tags
Click the Search button in the Email Tags group on the ribbon. The following Search screen will be displayed (provided you changed the settings screen)
- Enter your Search terms in the Tags field (separate multiple tags with commas).
- Click OK.
Let us know whether you prefer the old or new style search screen by leaving a comment on the blog.
