+1 for backlinks, also on iOS (along with regular wiki links)
+1 for backlinks.
Please add this crucial feature.
Given how easy it is to use wikilinks with backlinks in e.g. RoamResearch, I hope the Devonthink team takes this feature request seriously!
Count me in as well: + 1 for backlinks, on Mac and iOS
You’ll see that this has been a feature request since 2011. Hopefully this request is starting to generate enough user interest that devs will include that functionality. So, yeah, +1. While Roam slickly integrates backlink functionality, and even suggests other possible candidates as backlinks, it is entirely cloud based and a pale comparison to the full functionality of DT.
It is doable with Applescript.
It won’t anything like in Roam, but good enough.
+1 for built-in automatic backlink listing - I’m afraid I tried the ‘manual’ AppleScript solution, and wasn’t able to make it work.
It would be wonderful to go beyond simple ‘backlink listing’, and actually have DT actively suggest possible connections between items/notes. The approach here could be something similar to the way DT suggests archiving and tags: if there are ‘similar’ notes that all link to a certain item, then DT could suggest that item as a possible link, too. That would be extremely helpful in finding relationships between notes, when using DT in knowledge-management and research methodologies, like as a Zettelkasten.
The latest Zettelkasten-focused software already offers this functionality in some form - like Obsidian, and Roam Research.
+1 from me too. I’d love to see this.
I agree. It would make DT more powerful and useful.
Same here. Would be incredibly useful.
I would also very much like this function. So pleeeeease?
+1 Would be incredibly useful
+1, this is a really useful feature that would make me very happy not to have to move to something like Roam. I can get similar functionality using apple script, but it’s clunky and not optimal. Being able to generate and include backlinks in my docs is a very important feature for the way I take and manage notes.
