I've always liked the hyperlink nature of wikipedia and looked into personal wiki's for this reason, HOWEVER; lately I've started to learn the benefits of the great function of hyperlinking within EPIM. I have found I can use hyperlink in Calendar Notes tab when in table format, for an entry in contacts notes tab, for an entry in passwords notes tab, For an entry in ToDo Notes tab, and naturally enough In the text page in Notes Module. Either use the button in the text tools display OR right click on page and hyperlink is the last entry on the list. There are 3 options
Internet link - For adding URL's (but I prefer to copy from browser address bar & paste to the page. Then If I want to open that link just Ctrl+mouse left click)
File Link > Browser then search for files in my computer to link to my Notes page (this is good but I tend to add the text/image directly to the notes page or add text/image or other format as an attachment to the page)Item link > then click browse in the dialogue box - this allows me to do a search in any module by filename and link pages within any module in EPIM. (This I now use a lot and as I have begun to use it I wish I'd started using it before, and I keep thinking up new files to link together)!
Examples from emboldened text above...
1) By linking information within my notes folders I don't have to multiple enter the same Information in it's entirety to 1 or more other folders, but rather the folder(s) that contain the hyperlink can have just that link for that entry in the folder, or some covering notes that are very much an abridged version, but with the link there to click and review the full entry on that topic.
2) In Contacts Module, when opening an entry of an individual I've added hyperlinks under the notes tab, which is adequate for most information without referring to the Notes Module, BUT I like to retain copies of internet messenger chats, and these I have dated in leaves under the individuals name in Notes, so I have created hyperlinks to these.
3) People I know at work but also socially I have created hyperlinks in the notes tab for these individuals to the activities within Notes that I share with them, work & leisure.
4) When I am researching a topic online I like to maintain a step by step pathway of that enquiry in my EPIM Notes Module. With hyperlinking I can now open multiple note windows eg Pathway is - History/Ancient civilisations/Roman Empire/Road building
History which has various hyperlinks for different civilisations, one of which is Ancient civilisations >
Ancient civilisation which has various hyperlinks for different empires, nations tribes etc, one of which is Roman Empire >
Roman Empire which has various hyperlinks for different aspects of that topic, one of which is Road building
I now have a serviceable chain of enquiry.
FURTHER, I can go back along the chain by closing the last window for instance and on the Roman empire page instead choose The Roman Legion, or go back further still up the chain to Ancient civilisations and choose Ancient Greece etc etc etc..... It's up to the EPIM user and how their individual mind works that determines the specific nuances of use that they choose (and even if you don't like history I hope you can see this example illustrates the point I am aiming to get across?
Many thanks for reading, Paul.
