TheBrain Feature Suggestions

Categories

  1. 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 isfather 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)).…

  2. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  8. I rely heavily on thought types and link types. The inability to at least assign existing thought and link types (if not actually create new ones) ends up defeating some of the purpose of why I use the brain in the first place as I have to remember to go back and add that information when I'm at my pc. Stress!! It makes things more complex instead of simpler.

    I'd almost have to tag every Android-created thought with something to help me remember to make those updates later. If I'm adding a thought I only want to have to add…

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  13. hello dear TheBrain

    wouldn't it be huge plus to add a sort of an internal messenger/ mail functionality that can:

    1.create a mail/ message
    2.saves that mail as child to the thought from which the messenger is started (i.e. add message function)
    3.saves the body/message content in the notes section
    4.saves attachments with the same thought

    more advanced even would be:
    when that created message has an unique ID than a reply to it maybe could be added automaticly

    I think what i say will be very difficult to build in (maybe). But IF it will be possible than the…

  15. Advanced analysis and insights on Thoughts, Content, Documents and Relationships using AI. As user I would like The Brain to analyse my brain and uncover some insights, statistics, relationships that I would not necessarily be aware of.

  16. The Brain needs an option to export a FULL image of the expanded view. I'm not talking about the multi-page print function here, as this is useless for creating oversized images of a full expanded view. The resulting images should be able to exceed the size of the monitor's resolution. I've got an expanded view which 1920x5988 pixels in sizes.

  17. When using the Expanded View, it would be very helpful to be able to control the flow of the links between thoughts to route them around other thoughts that might cross their path because the network is too dense or perhaps just to keep things tidy. This could be done with the use of bezier handles which are used in countless other applications. You could allow the user to insert one or more handles into a link, represented by tiny squares or something. Then, the link would pass through all the handles on its path to where the user wants…

  18. In large expanded views, often there are many thoughts which link together in ways that look very messy due to the links crossing over the entire display to connect far away thoughts together.

    Sometimes, thoughts are linked in common because they share the same tag. But if I have an expanded view showing the relationships between these thoughts, I often don't want to see those links which are not relevant to the view I am using. In these cases, it would be VERY helpful to be able to hide links exactly like we hide thoughts. Expanded thoughts are great because…

  19. When working with expanded views that don't all fit on the screen at the same time, it would be very VERY helpful to have some navigation method other than drag/panning the display around. Scroll bars would probably be best for this. Or perhaps a thumbnail of the entire view where you can click on the spot you want to zip to.

    Since the expanded view is without boundaries, you would need to program the scroll bars to size and position themselves relative to the present extents of the view dynamically.

  20. Allow If This Then That (IFTTT) to have rules that are able to:
    The ability to create a thought
    The ability to add a file to a pre-definied thought.
    The ability to add a file to a new thought.
    The ability to create a new thought with a hyperlink.
    The ability to add a hyperlink to a pre-defined thought.
