I have all of my “work” and all of my “personal” notes in dynalist. I’d like to separate them but still have them all under the same dynalist account.
All of my “work” notes are under a Work folder and all of my “personal” notes are under a Personal folder. So they’re in separate folders, but they’re not really separate as far as actions like viewing, searching, etc. are concerned. More explanation:
When I look at my left nav bar (the “file pane”) I see all of “My files” listed. I have them grouped into two folders: Work and Personal. Each one of those folders has a number of separate files in the folder. So my file pane looks like this:
So, as you see, I’m using Dynalist for both work related notes and personal related notes. But the only reason I see them all in my file pane is that, as far as I can tell, I HAVE to see them all due to the way Dynalist works. I really want to keep them completely separate (i.e. the work related files and the personal related files). But I don’t see any way to have two separate sets of files within my one dynalist account.
One reason I want to keep them separate has to do with conducting searches. Let’s say I’m in the 2019-Q2-Work file, that’s in the Work folder. And let’s say I search on something like “development strategy”. Maybe I get four or five results, all nicely highlighted. But, I quickly realize that what I’m looking for isn’t in that file and I think it’s probably in another of my work related files. So, I can click on “Search in all documents” and I’ll see more results. That’s great, but the results I then get will be from searching through all of my Work related files AND all of my Personal related files. But I ONLY want that broader search to search through my Work related files. As far as I can tell, there’s no way for me to restrict the search to just those files that are in the Work folder.
