For the last few weeks, I've been working to modify my workflow for taking notes. For the last few years, I've been an avid user of Evernote, however I've been looking to move away from this and develop a process for note-taking that only involved plain-text files.
Why have I done this? One reason is that I was becoming increasingly frustrated with syncing errors that I was experiencing between the OS X and iOS versions of Evernote that I was running. I would find duplicated notes, discover some notes missing - the performance has been less than optimal shall we say.
So we move to Searching within [DEVONthink Pro Office]. As I'm sure you would expect, DEVONthink Pro Office has a lot of functionality available when it comes to searching for content. Not only can you search for document titles, you can also search for the contents of documents, as well as obtain results for metadata queries too. As well as this, DEVONthink Pro Office has a feature called fuzzy search and also leverages it's artificial intelligence engine to produce some truly accurate results.
What do we mean when we use the term Classification in DEVONthink Pro Office? When you classify a document, you are assigning it a category, or group. DEVONthink can make suggestions as to in which group a document should reside. Auto Classify pushes this further by using the AI engine within DEVONthink Pro Office and will automatically place several documents in a group deemed to be the 'best fit' with a simple keystroke.
n this post I'm going to discuss one of the most important factors when it comes to DEVONthink Pro Office and that is Importing Data. It's all well and good knowing what DEVONthink is for, yet how do we get data in there in the first place?
Last week, I wrote about how much I value DEVONthink, as well as the use cases that I currently have for it. That's all well and good, but where is your data stored? How do you import it? What can you import? Well, that's what I intend to cover in the next two posts.
Just over a year ago now, I created a series of posts that highlighted how I use a quite wonderful product called DEVONthink Pro Office. I use DEVONthink Pro Office as my paperless office solution and over the last twelve months, my workflows have matured, reaching the stage now whereby I feel as though I need to provide you with some updates. In fact, I'm so into the application at the moment, I'm going to re-write the articles from scratch!
