I’ve used it mainly to make a Homepage object with many sets on a single page to act as a dashboard. Secondly, I’m using inline sets in templates to add an inline Set with relevant objects in another Object I create on a weekly basis: I cook once a week for the whole week, and I keep track of the recipes for that week using an inline Set that shows recipes linked to the relevant week. I used a Relation for that before but it doesn’t show as nice.
I think I’ll be using inline sets more when I start using Anytype for my meeting notes amd all tasks. I don’t want to use it for work related tasks because it’s still in alpha… But it would be great to have a meeting notes template with an inline Set where you see the actions for that meeting, and where you can immediately add new tasks (actions, decisions, risks, information).
Good question, would love to see more use cases! At the moment I’m using it for my journaling page where I can easily see my weekly notes and monthly reflections. As Sambrouwer wrote above, in the future I hope to start using it for meeting notes for work.
I’ve been trying to create something for task and project management with inline swimlanes - but I find it very hard to create tasks from inline sets - if not impossible.
Ideally I could have a Project X, Project X could have 3 teams, each with a kanban. Each kanban would be inline in an overview page - meaning as a manager I can see what each team in each kanban swimlane is working on.
The same could be true for project overviews for multi-area project management and task management with a similar concept.
But right now, I can’t make tasks from inline sets… Though the buttons are there.
Oh I use inline sets all the time. This was one of the features that held me back from switching completely to Anytype from Notion.
I have many Projects I’m handling with Anytype. In all the projects I have 2 sections (inline sets):
In the “next Tasks” section I have a filtered view on an inline set of my Tasks. The tasks are linked to the project and in each project-view the inline set is filtered to show only the tasks of this project.
The same I do with the meeting notes.
