Add workspaces or areas
I’m really enjoying Amplenote for work. I have a number of other roles in my life that I would like to use AN for. However, I need my notes to be kept separate this will also make them easier to organise. I’ve tried using tags, but in a given writing session I’m only focused on one area so this is pretty cumbersome.
It would be great to be able to set up separate workspaces or areas as I do in my task manager (Things 3 for reference!).
This could be a limited number, or maybe a pro feature?
Our recommendation for meta-organizing is to utilize nested tags https://www.amplenote.com/help/organizing_notes_nested_tags#How_do_nested_tags_work?
Unlike folders, you can apply multiple tags to a single note. We also support filtering your notes/jots/tasks by the tag hierarchy applied.
Hi @Bill, thank you for coming back to me.
I’ve tried tags and in it’s current implementation it’s not that great for this set up. It basically turns into a folder hierarchy. I wonder whether some sort of global filter might work - similar to Areas in the GTD methodology. That might actually be the best of both worlds - separate pseudo-workspaces but a common set of daily jots to allow you to plan and work your day better. The filter is still based on a tags, so it might be much easier to implement.
The use case is that I have several types of meetings (meeting, team, 1to1 etc) and that these can be for any area of my life. So I would assign multiple tags but not have to repeat them (e.g. meetings\1ot1 and ‘company’ instead of having company\meetings\1to1 and school\meetings\1to1).
Is this something you might consider instead? I’m happy to raise a new ticket for it.
NirvanaHQ has a good implementation of this (and also different ‘types’ of tags e.g. area, person etc).
Hi, I see that you’ve just rolled out task domains - can this be extended to notes too and also used as a global filter? That would give me exactly what I’m suggesting in the workspaces/areas etc.
I agree, as an newcomer, micromanagement of personal/work tasks, notes, and jots all seem cumbersome. By isolating them into their own workspace/area would definitely make things much simpler.
