Smart Groups / Advanced Search / Queries
I've seen other suggestions around queries and search. What I would love to see is a way to search collections of notes together. For instance let's say I want to see instance where an entity (such and such Meeting) intersects with the tags #journal or #therapy) there is no easy to create this query or search. Roam has pretty advanced querying but they are not user friendly. Height.app has a great example of this with their Smart List UI. It allows you to create named searches and build AND/OR querying that are easy to build and view. I would love to see something like this in Reflect, both a way to do quick one-off search for aggregate entities/tags and a way to create "Views" that are filtered by given criteria.
Having "block-level" references would allow referencing a block as you add future content, context, iteration, ideation, etc. It would push the concept of Incremental Notes to the block-level, enabling expanding on ideas previously captured via links or Kindle reading.
Show backlinks in Daily Note
With the focus on living in daily notes, it’d be helpful to be able to see other backlinks to a given subject. Right now you can hover over a reference and it provides a mini-note summary, but if all context lives in backlinks this becomes less useful. Here’s a few options we posted in Discord… Option 1: Perhaps updating the right-sidebar where the “Outgoing links & Tags” are listed to embed other backlinks to same note would help? Option 2: If my daily note has a top-level bullet of "Call with [[person]] of [[company]] re [[project]]" then as long as my cursor is focused on that line, or any sub-bullets of it, bring up a panel at the bottom of the screen with backlink references for each of the Notes mentioned that has back references. That way I can stay on the Daily Note, take notes, but have all the context of the related notes on screen at the same time. Basically just copy the split-pane UI you have on an individual Note, and have it dynamically update (and allow showing multiple of them) on the Daily.
Route Highlights/Links to the right Brain
Today, I am struggling with routing highlights or links from e.g. the Chrome extension and "share" button in my twitter app to the correct brain (I have two, one for work and one personal). Could be many ways to solve for this, not so opinionated on that. E.g. interconnected brain, routing configuration in chrome extension, ... .
