What types of usage scenarios are folks putting the “Registers: A-Z” template to work on? I’ve got a large project that needs organizing and wondering if an A-Z Register structure might be just the ticket:
Basically, I need a structure to organize lots of fairly short text snippets (most will be 1-2 paragraphs) about a large number (200+) of culinary ingredients. At first, it seemed that the best approach would be to create one Group per ingredient, but I think that might be unwieldy both in physical sense (too much scrolling up/down the group list) and also organizationally given the relatively short length of each individual article/file for each ingredient.
So, I’m thinking of using the A-Z Register template to jump-start this process and treat it more like tabbed file-folder system. Normally, I’d make each topic a separate group entirely, but the A-Z Register seems like it was made for this type of use, as it lets my human method of conceptualizing where data is located work along DT’s great AI function - all without any tagging!).
Any suggestions as to whether this would be a good use of the A-Z Registers templating feature?
Also, and while I’m on the topic of DT’s Registers, can someone explain to me how the “Decimal” filing system is used in German offices? This is, pardon the expression, a somewhat foreign concept out here on the U.S. prairie. DT’s Help file says, alluringly:
“Decimal Filing System: Adds ten groups for the decimal filing system using in many companies in Germany, Europe, for filing (scanned) paper documents.”
Is there some special magic to organizing PDF’s into 10 subgroups that only uber-organized German firms know about? Details please!
