In this video, we'll look at some of the ways you can use it to automate your day get the most out of Tana.
The today page is your daily scratchpad. Every day you get a clean slate. Make it a habit to work here, operating your day. Don’t think about files and folders – just think, type, tag, and trust that your thoughts and tasks are captured.
Your Today page comes with a supertag out of the box: the #day supertag. It contains a suggestion for morning routine based on daily journaling and the theory of the book Eat the Frog. It has a live search list that shows you every item you've tagged #todo last seven days that you've yet to finish.
You can easily remove the supertag or edit it to make your version by right-clicking it:
You can add fields to your day if you want to create tables out of it. For example, here you can see how Maggie Appleton does it, where every day has three fields on it: Time Log, What's on your mind?, and Media Inbox
If you have a shared workspace, you can draft notes on your own personal Today page using supertags from the collaborative space. Tana will understand that this belongs in another workspace, so once it is ready to go, you can click the move to button or use the Move to command.
The day page has as much or as little structure as you would like. It can be a blank fresh start you approach with a clear mind, or it can be a structured template for your routines.
Supertags are the backbone of Tana, it's how you can give structure and context to item lightning fast, keeping your flow.
In this video you'll get an introduction to Supertags, how to create, change and use them.
