I use a modified version. I don’t use “projects”, but rather call them milestones etc but very similar. I do use areas. Area is a collection of pages, sets and other collections. I do use anytype for project management and it is very handy to change the type “opportunity” into type goal and then have daily tasks that are coded by several different tags and statuses show up in a daily dashboard. It is much more powerful than I thought at the first two attempts to use it. Once you get the terminology clear it is not hard to configure your system. I have found it so much easier than obsidian, logseq, Tana, or even notion.
Yeah, I know. Usually, to start using programs such as AnyType, the user will be able to use ready-made (system) types and relationships. Over time, when the user understands how to use them, they will start creating them on their own.
This would mean that any object can only have one of the four P.A.R.A. types.
You only have Project, Area, Resources and Archive types and I think that would limit you to much in my opinion. I would use object types for what type it actually is, like meeting notes, human, bookmark, etc.
But that comes down to personal preference and what type of content you want to manage in Anytype.
That sounds very interesting.
Could you show some pictures of your project management system? I’m still tinkering with mine and haven’t found the right solution for me yet. Maybe your pictures will give me some new insights on how I could build my system.
What has changed over the attempts? What did you learn?
once I understood what sets collection type and relations were used it was easy to set things up. I have a few different dashboards that I like to use toggle on to put several inline sets on one page that can be hidden.
I use a tag named thread to mark each area and then you can add things on the fly as needed
It is like the super tags in tana (except it does not inherit from parent which is really cool in tana) and obsidian meta info. Anytype is not great at capturing info just yet and I still use mem.ai for that but for a daily note taking and project management it is really good. I can spend more time working that trying to get a system in place in notion or tana or obsidian. When collaboration is finished I will transition our teams over to anytype
