One of the top questions we get is, "How Do I Create an Effective Filing System?" Creating a truly effective filing system starts with planning and the right tools.
STEP 1: FILE CATEGORIES Look at your current filing system (or that pile of paper that you’ve been meaning to file for months) and start sorting your documents into broad categories. These will be used for your folder headings
STEP 2: SUB-DIVISION If you have a lot of documents in one category use sub-division to create additional folders.
STEP 3: COLORS Your can use color folders for subdivision or a uniform look. Use color in your folder tabs to help differentiate your categories (The Viewables® Labeling System can assign index characters and unique colors for each letter).
