Apologies if this has been raised before, but I couldnt find it in a search.
On the band wagon of DT3 and Obsidian, I have indexed my Obsidian vault into DT.
I have then created a smart rule to tag the indexed files with the tags used in the .md file.
Now, the reason I wanted to index Obsidian is I use it for note taking on projects, with DT3 for file storage related to those projects.The tie up between the 2 here is the tag.
So, I now have indexed files with a tag of, say, project1. I want to apply that tag to the folder of same name for the imported files - my expected output would be to either use the Tags nav menu or a search, to retrieve both imported andf indexed content for that tag…
If I add the tag to an imported file, it shows up under the tag in nav menu…brilliant
However, I want to make this process more automated, by adding the tag to the group the content resides in. But, when I add the tag to the group that contains the imported content, it creates a nested tag, under the tag of same name (showing a group icon) with a group structure underneath that…
Any ideas as to why this works for files, but not groups?
Essentially, I work for a company that has clients, each client has apps and functions, so my nested tag hierarchy in Obsidian is;
Within DT I have similar group structure to contain files related to each of the above - I also both Obsidian and DT files in Company, Client and App levels, too.
I would like to be able to show all notes and files relating to any level in the hierarchy, in the nav menu
At present the only ways I can think of are;
Add folders to tag structure, but then I end up with duplicates - adding Client group to client tag, shows all client/app/function groups/files under it as well, then adding app group to app tag shows all the function groups/files under that, again, too.
Whether manually or via Smart Rules add each individual DT file to the tag structure, based on the group it is in - except I already have a structure of some 150+ possible levels, and more every month.
Only use Smart Groups or search to show all files relating to a tag - except, this means a LOT of Smart Groups
Any ideas, assistance, pointers, head ache tablets or bottles of whiskey to help me get to this utopia, are all welcomed
My want is to have a single hierarchical view, in DT, of all files (Markdown, PDF, etc) stored in DT (whether directly or indexed from Obsidian). The hierarchy of this view is based on Company/Client/App/Function.
All files related to Client A - including all its Apps and Functions
All files related to Client B’s HelloWorld app - and its functions
All files related to Client C’s ThisIsMe app’s data processing function
I was trying to acheive this by using tags, tag groups, etc
