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.
