Could use some pointers to create a page for 1 on 1 meetings

I’m trying to create a page for 1 on 1 meetings with my staff. I’m not sure my approach is correct so I would appreciate some pointers since I’m just starting out with Anytype.

I figured I should create a human object for each person on the team. And then my 1on1 page contains a set of human objects. Seems good however when I look at the graph I see each person has zero connections.

I also noticed I could add a tag (the team name) to the human object but in the view of the set of humans I could also add a tag (for the team name). I would have thought adding the tag would show in both places.

So, any suggestions or even a different approach to create a page to track all of my 1 on 1 conversations?

Thanks! I’m looking forward to start using Anytype!

Set’s don’t link objects (so they don’t aren’t connected in the graph). You will need to use collections instead.

The tags should show in both places. Which relation are you using (probably the default tag relation?), and are you using the same relation in both places?

(Edited mostly for clarity)

Create a new type for these meeting summaries, “Meetings”.

Create a template for the Meetings type, and at the top/header add a new relation, “Meeting participants”, indicating objects. (I’d also add other relations such as date, place, etc.)

Tag the Human-type object of who was in the meeting, and once backlinks are implemented you should be able to track all previous meetings with a person that way.

If you’d like to track all meetings, a set for Meetings will allow you to order them by date, participants, and whatever other relations you added.

Not sure this is what you have in mind, but maybe a thought in the right direction?

Can you elaborate on: “Tag the Human-type…” and on: “backlinks”

Thanks for the info!

First, of course, you will need to also have individual objects for people you interact with. These are Human-type. You can create them on-the-go, but that might be confusing so I suggest first creating the objects for the first person that comes to mind as a Human-type.

Then create the first Meeting-type object. If the template for it already has the Meeting Participant relation, then you will see next to the relation “Select objects”. Clicking or tapping on that will show a drop-down menu with recent objects, and you can select as many as you want.

Backlinks, which are in the works but currently unavailable, will allow you to see all objects that link to a specific object. Once this feature is added, you will then be able to open the John Doe object and see (through backlinks) all of the meetings (i.e., Meeeting-type objects) that he was in.

Sorry if I wasn’t clear again, it would take 2 minutes to explain sitting side by side.
