Use organizers to keep your journaling data well-organized, and to easily provide context for your journaling items.

There are 6 ways to organize: journeys, activities, categories, tags, people, and places. Journeys are stories that have a beginning and end.

A journey can be a trip, a goal, or a project. Activities are things that you often do in your daily life (reading, watching movies, working out, shopping, podcasting, etc). Categories are areas of your life (career, love, family, health, finance, etc). Use tags, people, and places to group journaling items of related topics, persons, or places.


Every organizers (except categories) can have other organizers as their parents. When you organize for example an entry with an organizer, the parent organizers will also be added to the entry.

For example, you have a journey called Loosing Weight which belong to category Health, and has tag weight. Whenever you organize an entry with Loosing Weight, the entry will also be organized with Health and Weight. But not every entries of Loosing Weight have to be organized with Health and Weight. You are free to remove them from the list of organizers of a specific entry.

Hierarchy is multi levels. Continue with the example above, if the tag Weight itself has tag Appearances as parent then, in addition to adding Health and Weight, Appearances will also be added to the organizers list of the entry.


You can organize almost everything in Journal it!. Look for the organize button when editing an entry, note, habit, tracker, tracking record,...
