Great feature! Is there a way to make groups of groups? For sub-categories of Groups? Thanks for any help anyone could give!May 12, 2013 at 1:21 am #4638GeoMagikAdmin

We decided not to allow sub-groups as it complicates a number of things in the UI and thought it would cause more confusion than its worth for some users.Groups are always listed in the Favorites alphabetically, so you can make use of this so that groups are ordered together. For example, if you wanted to make a group called Trips with subgroups for different places you’ve been, you can label all of the groups like “Trip: Germany”, “Trip: France”, then at least all your Trips will be ordered together at ‘T’ in the list of groups. You can also then use the search for “Trip” if you like to show all of your Trip groups…We are planning to add some “automatic grouped views” in one of our coming updates, so you can choose to see “All Favorites by Location” or “My POI by Category”.Also note that you can list pins and other items under multiple groups. A favorite POI for a restaurant for example could be listed under multiple groups like “Best Restaurants” and also under “Places I visited in 2012” and under “Trip: France”, etc.May 12, 2013 at 6:03 pm #4642
Oh, I’m using the old alpha-numeric sorting work-around already! Thank you, yes.
Pins: — Family & Friends (word space/double hyphen/word space to drive this Cat to top of “Pins:” category)
Pins: England – London
Pins: US – Maryland
Pins: US – New York, New York
I’m an old hand at that! But I didn’t think of using the Search to show only certain categories! Excellent suggestion, thanks.
Multiple Grouping I’ve figured out. Incredibly handy, especially for those of us who are becoming more memory challenged every day! ;^)
I’ll be fascinated to explore the utility of your “automatic grouped views” function. I tend to be very old school/literal in my computer use. (It took me forever to admit that Mac OS Spotlight was as or more useful than my obsessive Finder organizing.) So thanks immensely for helping to drag me into the New World of Info Handling!May 16, 2013 at 9:30 am #4666OzgeoModerator

Yes, I’ve latched onto the idea of sub grouping in this way, but I use the 2 letter international code (look it up in Wikipedia).
etc. ad infinitumMay 16, 2013 at 6:19 pm #4669
Ah, interesting. This is what’s fascinating about Information Management!
If you look back, you see my Groups are initially based on Kinds of Objects: Maps(Destinations), Pins, POI (although I didn’t include that category in my list above). Then on geography/location.
Whereas your list is based on geography, then on Kinds of Objects. I assume you also have a Group for your Destinations (maps) in each country code?
Thanks for the tip on international country codes. Fascinating how each of us approaches the same goal from different perspectives!
