How to get an empty Inbox when using tags?

peter.neubauer says:

Hi there,
when using tags and smart lists extensively like with the nice modified tag cloud from http://www.rememberthemilk.com/forums/tips/2943/, task are not longer moved into lists but only tagged and appear in different smart lists.

Is there any solution to this, e.g. by having a Smart Inbox that lists all tasks WITHOUT any tags and take that as my "Inbox" to empty?

Thanks for any hints!

Search for ' ' (nothing) and that'll give you a SL of all tasks.
I've created a List called '.' that I keep all tasks in to keep them out of my inbox.

You need a check smart list that lists all task without tags:
Search for isTagged:false and save as a smart list.

My check smart list criteria, this can become very complex ;-):
NOT list:¤ AND ((isLocated:false OR (NOT (list:Projekt OR list:Delprojekt) AND (NOT timeEstimate:">0 min" OR NOT priority:none)) OR ((list:Projekt OR list:Delprojekt) AND (isTagged:false OR priority:none))) OR (location:@jobbet AND tagContains:-) OR (NOT location:@jobbet AND tagContains:+)) AND addedBefore:tomorrow

Thanks a lot guys, the "." list is a good thing!
And then, a smart list "isTagged:false" will be the new inbox. too sad I cannot delete the original Inbox ...

You can choose which lists to show if you use Firefox and Greasemonkey,
look for RTM Enhanced (www.rememberthemilk.com/forums/tips/4475/).

I have hidden Sent that I never use.
