We were told that there is a benefit for being an alpha user, will we lose this if we start fresh with the beta version? This post says that we will need to make a new account with a new finger print phrase if we want to start over.
I don’t know - it seemed like from what I heard that there would be a free tier for everyone, and then if you need more storage or run out of storage that there would be the ability to upgrade. @Angelo, could you clarify?
You will not lose your status as Alpha Type after switching to Beta. The badge you see under your name will remain there, and all new people coming to the Beta app will be grouped as Beta Types. There are multiple ways for us to evidence who was here prior to the Beta version.
As a nightly tester I am at a split in the road with this question.
On one hand I would love a completely fresh start, as I have been one of the users that has seen many sync/data issues, perhaps more then most. Then, I would likely slowly start making Anytype my main note taking app (which is the long term goal anyways).
On the other hand, I would love to migrate to continue testing this great piece of software to make it better in the future. Specially since I have had many sync/data issues. But this will mean that Anytype will absolutely not be my main note taking app for a long time.
Is a partial migration possible? I have some elements I would like to migrate and others I entered just for testing I do not want any longer. What is the recommended path in this case? Migrate everything and then delete all the stuff I don‘t need?
I migrated from Alpha to nightly Beta some time ago. I logged in with my seed and it worked. But the Anytype ID in the beta is different from the one in Alpha? I did NOT start a fresh account, so how is my AnyID different? I was told in chat that this is typical behaviour, but after reading your post I’m scared which one to use from here on?
If you did a migration, your Legacy and Beta accounts are linked on the node level, but only for files, like images etc (even if the AnyIDs are different). Honestly, it’s a quite technical and irrelevant thing to discuss here.
I’d love a fresh start because I will get overwhelmed with all the things I have in my anytype and the new things that are implemented but on the other side, I’m too lazy to do it 1 by 1 and I would get overwhelmed anyway
Like others here I’m in the middle if the road since I upgraded to the (so great) Nightly version. User since a month I didn’t had much content stored so the migration when smoothly, therefore I’ll continue with the pre-release.
Looking at my 200 recipes in Notion and thinking that I’ll need to transform them one by one manually into a “recipe” object is really a turn off. IMHO it should be a top priority to convert more users willing to switch.
Hi, first message here from an alpha user. I have just played around with the alpha so far and plan to start new and fresh with the pre-beta. Depending on the time frame … Is there a more or less fixed date now when the pre-beta will be available? I am waiting to get things done…
