Does 1password 7 keep the option of using folders to organize your items as 1password 6?

I like to keep my items organized in folders. Does 1Password 7 keep that option? If it does, only the standalone version or both versions? I understand that the subscription version does not have folders since 1Password 7. I just like to have the information before i buy the new version.

    @oaguilar1965: Thanks for getting in touch! 1Password 7 used nested tags instead of folders. Any folders in your vault(s) will be converted when you upgrade. I hope this helps. Be sure to let me know if you have any other questions! :)

  • Hi there, I converted my 1Password6 vault to 7 but my folders did not convert, all my organizing did not convert. is there something I can do get them back. I'm using stand alone license not account.

    @ybagr: Can you elaborate? Unfortunately without some basic information it's hard to say what might be going wrong and how we might right it! Please tell me the OS, 1Password, and device versions you're using, the exact steps you're taking, and what is (or is not) happening the way you expect so we can figure out the best plan of action:

    Find your version

    The more information you can give, the better. For instance, you say that it "did not convert". What are you seeing then? Did you get an error? Thanks in advance! :)

  • Yes, I'm using a MacBookPro running OS High Sierra 10.13.5, I upgraded my 1Password 6 to 1Password 7 (7.0.4). I followed the direction, downloaded 1Password 7, Opened the new version and purchased a new stand alone license, it asked if I wanted to use my vault and then it said it need to convert vault to the new file format, I said yes, and that was it. It created some tags but they do not match any of my organizing folder I had in the previous version (6), it also added only a couple of items to the tags that were not in any of my folders. When I go to my iOS 1Password app I can still see my folders and now also the new tags.

    to compare I had seven folders with about a hundred items in them, now I have four tags with five items in them and one is a "sample" tag :-)

    Currently running 1Password 7.04 on a MacBook Pro OS High Sierra 10.13.5
    Thank you for your help

    @ybagr: Thanks for clarifying! I'm sorry for the trouble. I'm not sure why that would happen in your case, but try Help > Tools > Convert Folders to Tags and let me know if that does the trick.

    If you're still having trouble, the best thing to do will be to restart your Mac, reproduce the same issue, and then generate a diagnostic report so we can look at the logs to determine exactly what is happening:
