Getting Started with Nimbus Note
In my last chapter, I gave a brief introduction to Nimbus Note. It gave a brief overview and tour of the screen. It’s a great place to get started, so be sure and check that out.
But we didn’t really do anything.
Today, we are going to fix that. We’ll look at the structure and begin building a hierarchy to hold all of our knowledge. We will create a couple of notes and discuss some of Nimbus’s unique features.
Then we will do a deep dive into the editor. As a writer, this is very important to me and has been a major weakness with Evernote and most other note-taking apps I have tried. Some, like Notion, have decent editors, but the overhead involved in using the rest of the product is just too much.
So, if you followed along in the last article, log into your Nimbus Note account, and let’s get started. If not, take a quick look at that article and at least open a new account. If you don’t have time for that, no worries, just browse to Nimbus, enter your email, and get started.
When you first open your new workspace, as they say, It’s empty here.
First, you need to give some thought to the structure of your account. This will include workspaces, folders, notes, and tags. I can’t give specific advice as everyone’s use case will be different, but time spent up front thinking things through will save you a lot of time and frustration later. Here, you can find more about the structure for personal and business accounts.
I only have two workspaces, a Business workspace, and a Personal workspace. Having said that, I do 99% of my work in my Business workspace and keep the personal space free for temporary storage or for testing new ideas (like this article.) In other apps with a similar structure the Business/Personal workspace idea has worked well for me, but you do you.
