It has feature inheritance and prototypes (renamed as “super tag”).

Tinderbox used to be the sole note taking app with prototypes and inheritances (so far as I can tell).  Who know when the Agent/action feature of Tinderbox is going to get implemented (copied over).

The implementation is in Tana is much more attractive; that regular users can easily get it go.

From the looks of it, it appears that Tana will be joining the tiny, elite club of modern, “one-pane” outliners with full support for columns/fields. Aside from task-centric options that can be repurposed for general outlining (Smartsheet, Clickup, SheetPlanner, etc), my current go-to options for outlining with columns are InfoQube (on Windows, where I currently work) and Tinderbox and OmniOutliner (on Mac). Having a columns-capable, web-based app would certainly fill a niche, although, of course, there are big advantages to offline-first as well.

I hope this trend continues. And if it does, I think there would also be room for an improved OPML-like format (or a “hierarchical CSV”-like format) that would allow for straightforward interchange of outlines-with-columns.

(Over on the Slack channel, Tana’s developers appear to be periodically giving out invites…)
