Are Smart Groups synced to DTTG?

I have a Smart Group I created on my desktop. I’ve confirmed that the smart group (and the items matched) get synced to another Mac. I also sync to my iPhone. The smart group name is synced, but there are no matching documents in the smart group. However, the documents are synced (on demand) to another folder on the iPhone.

Shouldn’t the documents also show up in the smart group?

Smart groups of the Mac version are not yet supported by DEVONthink To Go.

Thanks for the awesome quick responses - no worries on them, was just wondering if I had found a bug…

They’re actually imported, but hidden by default as they’re non-functional right now. :slight_smile:

Ah, the “I can see it but you can’t” feature!

Actually we think of it as the “Don’t show it and get people upset it’s not working, but let’s make sure they’re there for the future enhancements” feature :stuck_out_tongue: :slight_smile:

You could also read through the lines with these answers :slight_smile:

Indeed you could, especially as we’re always hard at work on many things in here. :slight_smile:

Just want to put my hand up to looking forward to Smart Groups in DTTG. I mean now that you’ve done DT3, fixed most of the bugs, had a little rest - I wouldn’t want you all to get bored or anything.

It’s on the list… and yeah, we’re definitely not at a loss for things to do :slight_smile:


There is possibility to partially recreate this functionality using replicants and smart rule

Just wondering if it’s now possible to sync Smart Groups to DTTF – or if this is still in the works.


No change here.
Local smart groups in DEVONthink sync silently to DEVONthink To Go, but are hidden by default as they aren’t functional at this time.

Ok, thanks.

Any progress on this front? I use smart groups to organise my documents so DTTG is not much use to me without them.

DEVONtech do not publicise their road map - so barring the feature being ready to publish next week you will never get an answer to that question, sorry :slight_smile:
