The idea: what if you apply tags

  1. 8 weeks ago

    I thought it would be nice to have tags in the doogiePIM. So that they can be assigned to all database items. The tag field can be displayed on the home page, so that when you click on the tag to get a full list of items marked with this tag. Who has opinions about this offer?

    Do you mean like the already implemented "Flag Markers "?
    ...but the ability to assign more than one Flag to a record? ;)

  3. And not only this. Flags cannot be viewed at once across all sectors. A limited number of flags. And if you enter a search on the "grill" tag, you can simultaneously find: recipes in notes; weekend log entry; an invitation letter for a picnic, a construction task ... etc.
    Maybe a normal search is capable of this?

    Hmm.... Maybe what is needed is a prefix on the search so you could enter

    flag:Grill

    The results would then show all records, regardless of type, that has the marker of "Grill".

    I'll see what I can pull out of my nut (head) :)

  5. doogiePIM can create links between elements. These links can be seen by looking at each item. But these connections have no names.
    doogiePIM is able to assign flags to elements. These flags have names, but do not have a connection between them. So different elements marked with the flag "Urgently" may not have semantic links between themselves.
    The essence of the tags is that they can create a set of dynamic links between any elements and the same elements can belong to different groups of links by tags. This is a qualitatively new functionality.
    If you generate a report using tags and transfer it to NoteBoard, it may be interesting. Or is it a crazy idea?

    This is very similar to an idea I wanted to implement a while ago. I'm glad you're thinking along the same lines.

    Suffice to say, the NoteBoard is a key focus point for future editions. Linking is a major part of the doogie app range.

  7. Yes, I also appreciate the opportunity to create links in the PIM. Pim already has to make simple links using flags and related links. This is very good and is enough for simple cases. But there is something else. I will try to explain how I understand it. Each element of the database can carry not one, but many data sets, which differ in meaning. For example, a diary entry about a weekend could have the following data sets:
    weather
    food
    geographic point
    contacts
    vehicle
    season

    When a record is made, you do not need to create static links with other elements of the database. But you need to create open ports of entry that can accept a uniform connection.
    Each link has its meaningful name. Such connections are not what already exists, but they are what may appear at any moment, if necessary. These are tags.
    Suppose we want to find elements connected at the same time by two connections: contact and season. Then the open ports of the elements will respond to the request and we will receive a report from which it is clear that with a certain contact we meet more often in the summer. Or eat more meat in the winter.
    If the report is transmitted in NoteBoard, it will look very clearly. And also in NoteBoard it is very convenient to immediately start brainstorming on the solution of any task related to the obtained data set.
