What are notes?
Your journal is composed of entries which all have a date. They can be seen in the timeline and calendar, and present a linear story through time, of your experiences, personal growth, or whatever you use your journal for.
In contrast, notes are entries that don't have a date associated, and are meant for information that you want to revisit and that isn't related to a specific time. Each journal has space for both entries and notes.
To access notes, toggle the Timeline / Notes selector at the top of the timeline.
Notes are a great place to store information that you want to keep handy. Here are some use cases that people have shared with us:
- Managing different projects from start to completion
- Collections of related thoughts or ideas
- Web clipping for research — saving the contents of a webpage to look back on later
- Alternative journaling prompts
- Brainstorming about different subjects
