Replacing Hanging Files With Manila File Folders---Questions....
1. I have materials and notes from numerous authors that relate to marketing. I want to keep them all together under the topic "Marketing," separate from my client and prospect files. Each author, company or marketing strategy (ie. telemarketing, direct response ads) their own manila file. Keeping in mind that there's a mix of authors, companies, seminars that I attended and strategies, how would you keep all the marketing-related files together?
Note: Even if I use a bunch of expandable file jackets to keep all these manila files together, how can I make it clear in the file drawer that these files are under topic Marketing?
Do you use a larger than normal manila file as a divider to separate marketing from reference files that begin win the letter L or M?
2. David Allen recommends that we get rid of hanging files and use just plain folders standing up by themselves in the file drawer "held up by the movable metal plate in the back." I have several high quality file drawers that don't have this metal plate in the back. What are you using in lieu of a movable metal plate to hold your manila files upright in drawers?
