Organising saved pages

  • Idea

  • Under Consideration
I find myself using feedly instead of bookmarking pages, that way I can save pages at work and read them when i get home or whenever. Although now I have tons of saved pages, so what would be brilliant is if there is some way to organise them, maybe through tags?

This is a very good suggestion. The next 8-12 weeks are a little intense for use because we are trying to redesign the welcome process and lower the barrier for people who do not know what RSS is but I will add this suggestion to the list of things to look into as soon as the welcome snake is dead. Thank you for taking the time to submit this suggestion! -Edwin

+1 for this suggestion. Logged in here to suggest much the same. Would be a huge deal for me.

Even if your saved articles were sorted in the exact same way you have your feeds set up. Or even an option in your feed to just view saved articles from that particular feed.

edwk, this is good point, but quick and simple solution is possible, it's well developed Read it Later Firefox extension, what already have Google Reader integration.

It allows managing read later list and many other sexy things, have a look here.

This is indeed an area where we need to do much better. Will add it to the feedly 3.0 product roadmap. Thanks for the feedback.

Also it would be nice to have a way to prevent certain feeds from showing up on the cover page. Thanks!

I like the idea in general but it should be considered carefully. One of the best features of Feedly is its "snappiness", adding too many heavy features might negatively affect performance.

I would love this feature because I'm always working on numerous projects at one time and my saved list gets very bulky very quick. Having to go through them and find what's related to what project all over again isn't ideal.

What I would like even better than tags (though that would be fab too!) would be the ability to put saved articles into a particular folder you create/have within the Saved for Later category. Similar to what you can currently do with the RSS feeds. So if I'm working on an article about families I can put all relevant articles I want to keep in a " families" folder under Saved for Later. That would make my life so much easier.

Thanks very much for all your hard work! Feedly is a fantastic tool. I don't know how I ever managed without it. :)

Yes. Thanks for the suggestion. We have some ideas in this area which map well to your suggestion. We are going to look into it as soon as feedly for iphone and feedly for android are out.

I'm a huge fan of the tagging idea. I don't know how many people follow the same behavior, but right now I read articles through Feedly, then click through to the site, then save to Google bookmarks and tag. Needless to say this is an extremely time consuming process.

Tagging would essentially solve this problem by having Feedly serve as my bookmarking service, but it would also be great if I could sync between Google bookmarks and Feedly saved pages.

I'm personnaly a big big fan of Feedly!
But I still have to combined 2 others applications to make it smooth in my way of usage:
- Read-it Later
- Delicious

When I get an article, and I want to bookmark it, I use delicious to integrate my tags, thank you for this integrated feature, especially the feedly thingy on the bottom of each pages, to add directly in my feed, or tag it directly to delicious.
But, as time is not extensible, I have to stock-up also saved articles (over hundreds now!!), to be read later, I use "read-it later" for that, 'cause it's cross platform (to iphon/ipad, and others), but I can't tag in "read-it-later", to set categories, and themes.
In feedly as well, tags can't be added for saved items

The temporary solution I get is to creat a tag [toberead] in delicious, and to 'saved' it in feedly, as well as in application "read-it-later"
but all saved articles in feedly appears without my delicious tags.
I think that google reader include as well a tagging feature, but it's not really userfriendly, and it's not accessible throught feedly (or I don't find how?)

If feedly can integrate the tagging feature if accessibles in google reader, I will never need anymore delicious, and will get all of my bookmarked articles and tagged directly.

Nota, for tagging any articles, I go usually for 5 to 8 tags minimum, 'cause I don't believe that only one tag can describe a bookmark, my main type tag are: Text - Video - Images, then I tag with more elements about the content (event for pictures & videos), And I need a status tag: ToBeRead

it would be nice if there would be an option to browse the saved pages assorted by my induvidual categories.
when i think about a meal i would like to brose my saved pages in the recioe category for example.
i hope you understand what i want to express, my english isn't the best:)

best wishes

definitively agree with everyone here. The saved articles should be placed/nested under the same categories as they were found, except that the should be categories under the "SAVED" section on top left. I don't this there is a need for the source list under the categories.

So for example, the categories should be listed as follows:
Saved
jQuery
Business
Modernizer
etc...

Moreover, it would be nice if one can search through only the saved articles as well as be able to maybe put meta tags... just a few recommendations

i agree , was just about to post the same thing and I read below the proposal. I would take it a step further, make it organizable through tags as well as the categories under which you have them saved.

Im already using PaperSpan for this. Organizing with folders. It has nice Android app where can save the pages into sd card (so available when no internet).
But getting this feature into Feedly actually helps than opening another app.

I was so excited when I discovered Feedly with its continuous scroll feature. I want to be able to use one app for my reading and organization of blogs etc. So sad to discover that (existing Google) tags do not import and tagging limited to 1 per article.

I see old responses, but is there anything in the foreseeable future that plans with regard to tagging - specifically:
1 - full integration with existing Google reader tags and tagged articles
2 - ability to add multiple tags to an article
3 - ability to access articles by tag

Thanks for the consideration and (hopefully) response - and forgive me if some of this is already available - I'm new and just discovered Feedly.

I think feedly needs improving tag managing, making it easier.
Possibility of rename existing tags, or assign several tags to a single article would be great!

Just switched to feedly from my beloved google reader, i had like 8 years of catalogued research stored in there, feedly is being widely touted as the reader replacement but is it true i cannot bring over my tags also from my reader account? that's definitely a dealbreaker
