Start by populating your knowledge base: To add a file or a web link and quickly re-find the information again in the mass of material accumulated over time simply, drag and drop it onto the main screen. It’s that easy.
- For a better overview just hover with the mouse over an item to instantly see its most important attributes in the side panel on the left.
- Files that have embedded or attached metadata will classify themselves automatically and preserve all metadata for later use.
- Files without metadata will be listed with their file name plus the date when they were added. You can then manually adjust the title and other metadata variables. The same applies to any physical items you have added by hand.
Alphabetical display of titles - standard opening page, user can define which columns to show.

Display by topics - if you have assigned topics to your collection items or converted keywords to topics.
