Yaroslav

The most important extra elements for importing/exporting (for me) are the attributes and their values, that are associated with each item. I was recently able to do a csv export from Milenix Myinfo to Ultra Recall (UR) - because Myinfo enabled: export of document/item title, any URL associated with any item, and all the column headers (attributes) and their values. Then I could import that using UR’s csv import. It saved me countless hours of re keying information.

I guess that leads me to a further point. Being able to add attributes and various value types (text, date, yes/no, multi-pick etc) to any item (not just tags) I would have thought is essential for anything beyond really basic information management - because a tree structure, even with tags is very constraining. Both Myinfo & Ultra Recall (and Zoot) are very strong here.

Cheers, Ian

Ian, when you say Ultra Recall development has stopped, do you mean the company simply hasn’t added any features for a while - or can an inference be drawn from what you say that Kinook is having problems?

Thanks.

I’m certain Kinook is a thriving company - other than that everyone on the planet has “problems” - so I’ve no idea what you are talking about really. I suspect that the market for personal information managers is way less than other products they develop - if you get my drift.

In my opinion no one since Kinook, Milenix, or Zoot, and perhaps ConnectedText (although this has a somewhat different purpose) has come up with a PIM that is fundamentally better. Each of these tools recognizes that the user needs to get very creative with custom views of the data. I suppose Personal Brain is an attempt do do this in a uniquely visual way - but it falls far short of the customize-ability of those others.

Thanks, Ian.

I wasn’t talking about anything, other than asking a question prompted by your comment about UR and development.

Ian, there is no support for custom item attributes in TreeProjects - only fixed attributes such as tags are currently allowed. TreeProjects is more geared towards full text indexing and search. For example, as far as my tests indicated, neither MyInfo nor UltraRecall standard editions, which are priced similarly, allow searching in file attachments like PDF files. This is because initially I developed TreeProjects for own use in software project management, where storing and managing heaps of documentation in various formats was essential - and no existing PIMs at that time could reliably offer this functionality. Now that TreeProjects’ development is driven mostly by user requests, custom attributes for items are on the road map.
