  1. Embedded Browser Meets OneNote Edit-ability

    I love the Embedded Browser feature. It would be so much better if I could optionally "Save" (Clip) the contents into the Notes tab for editing. The amount of time this would save would be exponential. I am sure at some level this is an end goal of the tool, but if not it should be.

    I love the changes I am seeing, keep up the great work!!!

    • TheBrain Salesforce AppExchange Product

      TheBrain, as a commercial AppExchange product on the Force.com (Salesforce) platform, in my opinion would fill a huge existing gap: The ability to easily visualize either system level metadata (object relationships) or even more importantly hierarchical record-level data relationships across those objects.

      The applications of TheBrain from this perspective seem endless. I've listed a few below:

      Administrative/Developer/Architect
      - Implementation Modeling of initial Data Model Architecture
      - Actual Data Model (objects, fields, etc) metadata importing/exporting into Sandbox
      - Ongoing Production level Data Model evaluation for support and trouble shooting purposes.

      End User
      - Data Visualization for improved contextualization of relationships
      -…

      • TheBrain9 :: create multiple though relationships by prefix | suffix

        Sometimes I've activated a thought and are creating children thought for it, I realise one or more would be better as jumps or parents. (Mostly jumps.) If when creating the thoughts you prefixed a thought with "p:" or "j:" the subsequent title would reposition as described. Perhaps there are other options on creation.

        For instance, if I was creating a genealogy and I'd started with my father I could type in the links the following:

        p: grandfather; p: grandmother; j: wife; j: ex-wife; brother; sister; sister; etc.

        While this is a trivial example I've come across a few situtations where…

        • MS Office Add document to TheBrain toolbar icon

          I would like to see a toolbar item for TheBrain in MS Office applications. Pressing the button would put the document (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc) in the active though in TheBrain. Maybe a second button that would prompt for which thought to insert the document. Options would include the ability to specify if the item would go as an attachment of the current thought or create a new sub thought under the selected thought.

          • 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:

                        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.

                                  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.
