TheBrain Feature Suggestions

Do you have an idea for TheBrain? Do you recognize a good idea when you see one? Contribute your ideas and vote for your favorites. Your feedback will help shape the future.

When posting ideas, please limit yourself to one idea per post – otherwise people can’t vote on each of your ideas.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Tags on Android

    Please implement tags on Android!!
    And of course the tags should synchronize too, when I syncronize my Desktop-Brain with Android.

    • Copy paste bookmarks (url) to note on iPhone

      At the moment I can only paste an URL to the notes area of a note.
      Then I have to correct it on the desktop afterwards to have the link in the note directly.
      Inefficient.
      Why not copy & paste or easier?

        • tags ipad iphone

          I'm loving to prioritize my thoughts through tags.
          Please, realize tags also on iPhone and iPad!

          ...or is there anything I've been missing?

          • create customizable stylesheet for sitebrains

            Please create a stylesheet that we can use to customize the look and layout of the sitebrain. Its ugly, not user-friendly, doesn't display the same way as the desktop version, and really isn't up to web standards for 2017. I would rather have a gorgeous and functional hierarchical display of my brain data than what is currently generated. I can't recommend using the sitebrain for anything, which is sad.

            • Clean up this Feature Suggestions list.

              To include stuff going back (and taken care of) many years ago reduces the value of this list. Once a list is this long it starts to get pointless.

              • Using MetaData From media files (#3385)

                The best way to show you the possibilities of Meta Data is to follow this link:
                http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/ by Phil Harvey.
                This Meta Data lets you send keywords with there content baked within the foto, video, sound, 3d, pdf
                Whatever file you are using.

                To program this features in c#, there is a MetaData extractor software wrapping Phil's exiftools:
                https://github.com/drewnoakes/metadata-extractor-dotnet

                Like i said before i am trying to make a program to help identifying and catalogue plankton.

                The metadata in the foto or video will help me to use new keywords to define several features to which a particular type of …

                • Using theBrain as an Artificial Intelligence Tool (A.I.) and self learning system

                  Artificial Intelligence.

                  The links between thoughts could be extended with a new type, for instance: relational facts.
                  This link-type would be applicate to thoughts which related to each other on a special way.
                  f.i. thought-x is_father tought-y
                  thought-y is_son thought-z
                  What is beautiful in that concept is that the user is completely free to make its own relations labels in every possible domain like :
                  engine-e has_wheels
                  To make the relation link complete, it should be capable to have a new feature (array) where you can put some additional attributes like 4 (four wheels) and methods (script-code function(x,y,z)).
                  Thus the…

                    • Automation - Alternate visualisations - Data interfaces ... API

                      TheBrain is a great way to organise and visualise your information ... in front of your computer: mouse, keyboard, big screen. Automating recuring actions is missing. Printing out a report on paper (next-actions, projects). Maintaining coherence between different data-types (Evernote, kanbans, DMS). Extracting information for process- and project-managment. Updating partial data "on the road". Automating workflows.

                      • Track progress / statistics externally

                        I'd love to track my progress aka brain size with a sheet or preferrably Beeminder https://www.beeminder.com

                        Might be a nice motivation for others as well to keep using their brain.

                        • Create a thought directly from clipboard or unbox on Android

                          Creating a thought out of a web link should be a lot easier and more intuitive. My suggestion: right from the + menu, without having to type the thought name first.

                                  • Building a library of routes of varying difficulty for the study TB model

                                    Route to the Reader

                                    Users of TB application have created a model with thousands of nodes.
                                    As they pass the best practices to use them to their children and students.?

                                    whether there is a system application experience not only for the recording of knowledge group, but also for use in training and support.

                                    in this case it is important to have any customized routes or trace for viewing, which depending on the problems worthwhile.
                                    Without such routes is difficult to understand the model of another author. Perhaps the solution would be to create a hierarchical tags

                                    • Ordering and filtering child thoughts by type and tag, as a permanent setting of the parent thought

                                      It would be nice to have a setting per thought, that would define the ordering and filtering of child thoughts when the thought is in focus. Ordering could be done alphabetically, by date, and by thought type (ascending and descending), and filtering by type, tags and date. This would immediately enable a number of use cases requested, mostly around task and project management, but it is also universal enough to support many more.

                                        • Import Diigo bookmarks into TheBrain

                                          For those of us who have extensive Diigo libraries, it would be great to import them into TheBrain.

                                          Second step would be if we could do the import every so often, and it would only add the Diigo entries that hadn't previously been imported. Then we could continue to use both tools in their own way...still love Diigo page markup capabilities, and would like to continue using those.
