This continues from the Telegram Community channel, where people wanted to bring multiple object types under one ‘start page’ per say, to be able to view everything connected to a particular project in a centralized location.
Universe: The industry/niche of work. For eg: Productivity | IT | Fitness etc.
Planet: The specific company/org for which work is being done. For eg: Anytype
Sphere: The area/category the work is being done under. For eg: Community Management, Emails, Blogs etc.
Side note: Universe is something I am not using, but a good use case would be freelancers who work across various industries and want to have a well-structured database to bring work for ‘a particular industry/niche’ together instead of it being distributed across ‘object types’ such as DB of Newsletters, DB of Pages, DB of Projects, DB of Tasks etc.
So, here’s how I have leveraged the power of relations.
I have a set of ‘relations’ called Workspace. Description: All my work is collated under the set itself.
For my needs, I am using relation ‘Planet’ as the structuring parameter. ‘Planet’ is a relation which inputs a text field in my case.
For the purposes of this showcase, I have set-up a dummy planet called Anytype.
And in the filter options, selected all objects that have the ‘planet’ relation set as ‘Anytype’
Side Note: Be sure to use same spelling and typing format, otherwise the DB would not show all objects that contain said ‘relation’. For eg: 'Anytype ‘, ‘Any Type’, ’ Anytype’ would be treated as separate (this is a good thing)
All objects that would now contain the input field ‘Anytype’ in planet would show up et voila! Your start page for a specific project is all set. Now you can add it to favorites for quick access, if you’d like.
Here is what it would look like:
And as you can see, I have multiple object types here:
