  1. Hi @axelf Nothing earth-shattering: Main tag > Clients Sub tags > Business / Residential Then I set up a sub tag for each client under the appropriate heading and then add various sub tabs for my use case. After that when creating a new entry I can simply navigate down the tag tree to the correct sub tag and create a new entry as required. Alternatively, create a new entry and drag and drop it to the appropriate tag/sub tag. The only time I will need to manually enter a tag path in an entry is if I want to 'put' it in two or more places. The titles to my entries are also usually pretty descriptive, e.g. Denton The Bear - User Profile - Desktop #1. This way I can also use the search to narrow down entries without navigating the tag tree, this I find is easier when I am working off my phone. As I say it is nothing overly sophisticated, looks and acts like a folder structure with some added benefits, the other thing not related to tags I use a large amount is custom templates to speed up my workflow. No it is not going to be everyone's cup of tea, but I am making it work for my situation and of course it may not be what others want but that does not mean that it should be thrown out in favour of something else. Hopefully this will make sense, if not please let me know and I will try to expand and clarify.
  2. The humour: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teaching_grandmother_to_suck_eggs I am not trying to change peoples opinions, but rather help users to understand how they can use tags if Sinew decide not to implement folders for the foreseeable future.
  3. I think I am I missing your point? It is possible to have many subtags with the same name, but of course I am not able to create more than one main level tag with the same name.

  4. Hi, I am happy to use Tags as a folder structure because I understand how they work and I have a consistent and robust naming system for my data. For those that think otherwise, well I cannot help that. We will have to continue to agree to disagree.
  5. Hi @pauloirply Why say Tags as opposed to Folder? Because while they be can be used in a way similar to each another, they are different beasts and not just a substitution of concepts. I will attempt to explain as I see it, sorry if I am teaching you to suck eggs: Folders An item/record titled: Amazon. A traditional folder system with a tree such as: Clients > Dentonthebear > Logins > A to E. You 'physically' place the item in to the folder A to E detailed above. That item/record can only be located in one place, namely Clients > Dentonthebear > Logins > A to E (a slight over simplification as the item/record would still be visible in the central column in the GUI). Tags An item/record titled: Dentonthebear - Amazon Different tag layouts: Clients - Residential > Logins Clients - Residential > A to E Residential Clients > Dentonthebear The item/record is tagged with all three tags but is not 'physically' moved to any one of the tag locations, but remains in the main root of the programme (again the central column in the GUI). The tagging system provides a shortcut to the item/record while allowing multiple ways of defining how you find it (if you do not just use the search function). ------ Tags are similar to how Google Picassa worked. Pictures would be located in the 'My Pictures' folder and Picassa would 'tag' them by year/month/day while moving nothing and displaying a thumbnail of the picture. Many of my clients could not grasp that the photos were not 'in' Picassa itself ("But I want to back up Picassa!"), because as far as they were concerned as they could see and open them in/from Picassa they must be in Picassa. I am not trying to sound condescending (but I probably am) when I say I do not understand why people are not grasping the concept of tags vs folders when to me, it makes perfect sense.
  6. Hi @pauloirply Yes I do realize that Tags and Folders are not directly interchangeable features, but... At the end of the day Tags is the current feature in Enpass not Folders and I can use Tags as well if not better for my purposes as I could with a generic folder system I am happy, even if others cannot figure a way of implementing them. But that is just me I suppose.
  7. Hi @pauloirply Sorry, I almost completely disagree with you, and for you to say that the Sinew staff are 'confused' because they are not producing exactly what you want is to my mind insulting. If I said that you do not understand how to use the Enpass because you have no common sense or you are not intelligent enough you would, I am sure not be pleased. Whether people want to admit it or not Tags can quite happily be used as folders, and while there is the ability and use case for them, you do not have to give each entry multiple Tags. Just create your 'folder' structure (using Tags), go to the relevant folder (Tag) where you want to place and item and create away. Which is exactly what I did when I transitioned from v5 to v6, not in the slightest bit confusing or difficult. In addition, all of my entries are laid out by client name (simple A-to-Z filing) followed by a classification, i.e. Remote Desktop Setting. This means that I do not have to look through my Tag filing system if I do not want to and the search functionality makes it quick and easy to locate any entry I am after. If a consistent naming/filing system is maintained then truly you should never need to Tag/File anything, you could store it all in a root folder! There is one other major piece of software I can think of that uses Tags and I have not come across its users making any complaints, and that is Finder in Mac OS. Windows may have something similar but I have not used it for so many years I cannot recall. Yes having the ability to hide the categories/tags etc would be useful to some, but if that was made a feature deleting them altogether would seem to be redundant. See I said I did not completely disagree with you. Is Enpass expensive? Well I suppose that all depends on your budget, what other packages you are comparing it to and whether you consider it good value for money. The clients I have using it are a balance of those who just use the free desktop version and those that use it primarily on mobile devices and have been happy to make the purchase. Enpass is free to use and learn without any outlay, so beyond a user's time, before taking the plunge and purchasing the full product for mobile devices. Software rarely works exactly the way an end user wants it to, unfortunately it is down to that person to either find another package that they like better, or to learn to adapt. To fall back on an old quote: “You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time”.” ― John Lydgate Finally, yes developers need to listen to their users. But that does not mean that every user should expect that every feature they want is going to be included in a package.
  8. If you changed the name of Tags to Folders you could still achieve the same outcome, I am sorry but I just do not see the problem people are having!
  9. Hi @Mauko I do understand that tags are not folders, but I have learnt to adapt and make full use of tags. Looking from my side of the fence it seems that people who want folders back do not understand tags.
  10. Hi Sinew Team, Hopefully no-one else has asked for the following feature. I would like to be able to set up a Tag with multiple Subtags and have the ability to duplicate it to save me the time and effort of having to do it manually every time I generate a new client. Currently, I have seventeen subtags (as shown in the picture) and it gets extremely tedious to have to recreated them manually.
  11. Simply I treat tags/subtags as I would folders/subfolders with added benefit of being able to store an entry in two or more 'folders' as the same time. Or am I missing something?
  12. +1 - Quicker than manually navigating to the tag/subtag.
  13. Tags are folders, with the added benefit of being able to store an entry in more than one 'folder'. Or am I missing something?
  14. Problem: Entries multiple time in different tags Comment: Surely this is because as a user you are adding multiple tags to an entry! Problem: Cannot move hole (sic) Subtags (Folders) (I mean with Keepass i can move a folder to a different Folder a Entry to a different Folder etc.) Comment: I have to admit I have never tried to move them so this was news to me. Yes I can see that this would be a nice feature to have. Problem: The UI looks annoying with this Tag Icons in front of Comment: What one person finds annoying is another person's pleasure, however perverse. Would you want to do away with all the icons in the other sections as well? Problem: The Tags sort by Name (Bad UX, the User should move the Folders like he want to) Comment: I would think that the vast majority of users are going to go alphanumeric for sorting, would the coding required for what I would perceive to be a very small minority be worth the extra investment in time. My work-around when I want things out of alphanumeric is to use the following type of layout: 01 - This is a folder 02 - For investigation 03 - Delete this information 04 - Queue these jobs up on the 1st of the month Ants Bats Cats -------- As I commented in the post above really do not see the problem with Tags/Subtags as, to my mind; they perform the same function as Folders/SubFolders. To quote the Bard: "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet". Please, if you have now decided you no longer like the product there is no need to resort to calling it the vernacular for excrement. The staff at Sinew work hard at the Enpass project and to disparage their work with name-calling is not called for.
  15. Hi @Alex I create a new tag for a client, then I create the required subtags by right-clicking on the parent tag. I keep meaning to suggest a new feature of Tag/Subtag templates which could then be duplicated to save time. In my way of working the title for a new record would take the format of something similar to: Client Name - Mobile Phone #1 or Client Name - Server #3 Then I drag the entry to the appropriate tag/subtag. If you wanted, Tags and Subtags can be created when generating your new entry by creating a breadcrumb trail: Clients:Test Case:Company:ETC Hopefully this is the sort of setup you want to use. To be honest I am at a bit of a loss to understand why users are having a hard time using Tags/Subtags, if the names were changed to Folders/SubFolders the task they perform (to my mind) remains the same.
  16. Personally I would like to say that I cannot see a problem with Tags and use them all the time. But that is just me I suppose.
  17. Hi @Bonze I would hope this is a false positive, there have been incidences in the last couple of weeks with other AV suppliers. The Sinew staff will I am sure report the problem to Norton for correction as soon as possible.
  18. Hi All, Just out of interest when you say your databases are growing, just how large have they got?
  19. Assuming Sinew have proper in-house quality control (which, yes you have to take on blind faith) that would stop an infected product being uploaded to the Windows Store it does sound as though McAfee is producing a false positive, especially as other Enpass users, who again I am assuming are using other competing antivirus products, have not reported an issue. According to an old post on the McAfee forum an item designated as an Artimis Trojan is something that the software does not recognize and maybe a possible risk, basically it is being overly protective and giving you a warning. Excluding the items from a scan is I agree not best practice, but a quality AV solution even if an item of malware was excluded by name should then stop it making erroneous changes to the system. McAfee forum post: https://is.gd/j2vCOm Instead of pasting (was the error generated by the forum software?) the McAfee data maybe you could enter it in manually, yes I understand this would take more time and effort, but it would help the developers to be able to communicate the problem with a third party such as McAfee quickly and easily. Long term this would help yourself, your work colleges if they too use Enpass, and the rest of the community.
  20. Hi @Fair-Monkey Which distro are you using?
  21. Hi @SamTe Trust me I have an award for The Most Unobservant Person of the Century... Think I only found it by chance.
  22. Hi @SamTe In edit mode for an entry you should have an 'Add File' button as highlighted below:
  23. Hi @mschuppx1 The Enpass team are going to want to know what version of Ubuntu you are running and if you have made any mods as well as the current version of Enpass you have installed. Have you tried removing Enpass from your sources list and then adding it back? My entry /etc/apt/sources.list.d/enpass.list reads: deb https://apt.enpass.io/ stable main #Enpass I am currently running Xubuntu 20.04.
  24. Hi @dan45 Before thinking about changing your TPM check that the firmware is up-to-date and I would suggest also resetting it. Microsoft's guide to resetting the TPM: https://is.gd/3bYNYy Thread on the ROG ASUS forum: https://is.gd/2ll2kh

    Hi @JohnHenrose There is an installation guide here covering several platforms: https://www.enpass.io/support/kb/general/how-to-install-enpass-on-linux/ Check that you have the following library installed: libxkbcommon-x11-0 I have installed Enpass in a Deepin and it starts up. However, in my instance Enpass does not sync any items but I think this is a problem with the virtual machine rather than the package itself. Let the forum know how you get on please.
