TheBrain Feature Suggestions

  1. I am missing the possibility to find an explanation of words. Strangely enough in this interface for the suggestion of new ideas when you double click on a word an explanation box is presented and in case you want more you can have google translate activated.

    I have Grammarly active but apparently, this does not work in notes of Thebrain. It would be great if that could be allowed.

  2. Create an item in the TimeLine - we can colour code them, but to have the colour scheme correlate with the Thought Type would be useful.

    eg Events, or Meetings (as Though Types) would be colour coded in the TimeLine too. Maybe as a toggle option. Be super helpful from a graphical perspective imho!

  3. One essential feature I think it is not difficult to implement: Create Thoughts from selected text in Notes. They will be Child of the selected thought. We could also have a way to Turn On "Create Thought from Selected Text". Extremely useful and productive.

    This way we can separate important topics as Child Thoughts, analyze a subject or article, etc. If the selected text, becomes a Link for the Thought it will even be better and add value (this can be an Option for the feature).

  4. It would be great to have some way to automate processes, based on other services and have the brain be part or even the center of the application eco system. Have Todo items from Todoist or send to it, add items added to pocket automatically to the brain based on it's tags, etc ...

  5. I would love for icons to automatically combine For example if I had a people Icon for a group, and a Country Icon for a flag, it would automatically use the flag for the country combined with the people icon for people associated with the country.

  6. It would be great if it would be possible to geotag thoughts based on location (Integrate with Google Maps/Earth, or Bing Maps, etc ...) as well as be able to associated a historical date/time (the later I think is already possible, but a bit cumbersome). Allowing for a Map View for example.

  7. It would be great to get a Pie Chart type View like in iMindMaps as an option:
    https://www.facebook.com/270993159770/photos/p.10156345801699771/10156345801699771/?type=1&theater

    Similary a map (see geotagging request) and timeline view would great as options:

    And in general have different views default to different thoughts, e.g. when clicking on tasks it would go to something like that, use a list view for others, a map view for others, etc ...

  8. I use TheBrain 10 on a Dell Xps 15, which has a resolution of 3840x2160. At this resolution, TheBrain is annoyingly slow. So slow that I prefer to run it in compatibility mode (High DPI scaling override). Please make TheBrain 10 more responsive for those higher resolution.

  10. 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
    -…

  11. 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!!!

  12. As a continuous learner who works in the always evolving world of software/technology, I would love to be able to use an existing brain, or create a new one that allows me to study singular thoughts as if they were the "prompt/question" side of a flashcard, in relation to all related thoughts being the collective "answer" on the other side of the flashcard. (Each Thoughts related Note or Embedded Browser could hold more detail.)

    I would be able to track results such that the "prompt/question" thought would receive a percentage score based on the aggregate result of each individually evaluated…

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. 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?

  16. 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?

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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)).…
