I’m curious about other users’ workflows using DT, particularly those users of Obsidian and DTTG on iPad.
I’ve been a DEVONThink user and fan since 2004 so I have a fair amount of notes and links on DEVONThink.
For the last 3 years or so my main computer has been an IPad Pro, and since the rise of Obsidian in 2020, I’ve been working on perfecting a workflow to publish on my websites long-forgotten and deeply-buried drafts, for keeping track of projects and tasks, and for producing deliverables to my consulting clients. It all have started to make sense again.
Normally I quickly write notes and ideas on the Drafts app, which I in turn send to DTTG or to the Obsidian App on my iPad (which is already sync’d to DT and DTTG). I’m yet to implement a full-fledge Zettelcasten system, but probably will do so in the near future.
I also use Obsidian for what I call “Project Sheets”, which are simple project notes, with links, main tasks and references of client projects (web dev and marketing consulting mostly).
I’m using a simplified version of Nick Milo’s MOCs (Maps of Content) to quickly find info on my vault.
DEVONThink is my Archive, Reference and both a Source and Repository for most of my drafts and ideas.
Also, I use Omnifocus both on my iPad and Mac, and it is linked to the main references and Project Sheets in DT and Obsidian. That’s an idea adopted via Carl Pullein and Kourosh Dini.
On a side note, I would probably use more DTTG for editing some of those markdown notes generated via Obsidian, but I find the DTTG editor not as reliable and a bit clumsy. The Obsidian editor is a real joy to use. I don’t like to use fthe Notes app, which although is pretty and usable, is mostly unlinkable. And, I hate cloud, proprietary-format apps such as Evernote, Notion and OneNote.
Perhaps my worklflow is a bit more complex than ideal, but I like it and enjoy using it.
What is YOUR workflow on iPad using Obsidian (or another app) and DTTG / DT?
