I first purchased Devonthink in 2006 but despite the long association I have never really managed to get to grips with it. Now I want to create a database and need some advice.
Essentially, I want to create a database of all correspondence with a given party over many years. Those emails and all their attachments are spread over a number of Gmail a/cs. Is this possible in Devonthink? I want to automate as much as possible the retrieval of the data rather than looking it up in a browser and dragging to Devonthink. It would be good to OCR any PDFs but that’s beyond the capabilities of my Pro version and as yet the cost benefit of upgrading is unclear - as I mentioned I’ve never got to grips with using the application in the past. I do have external OCR apps but I can’t see how to integrate those into a workflow for Devonthink.
Suggestions as to how to go about this would be gratefully received, I’ve perused the Vimeo tutorials but that hasn’t really produced any insights. Or is Devonthink not an appropriate tool for this?
