Roam Usage Patterns

Jesse

August 17, 2020


This is a collection of Roam patterns that I've learnt and / or collected from others.

Using daily pages as versioning for other entity types

Problem

You want to keep a historical record of something, but adding a date entry to an entity can be tedious and needs to be replicated for all entities.

Solution

If you list your goals in your daily page under a reference like [[Goals]], when you visit the [[Goals]] page you will see a historical record of your stated goals in linked references section. There will be one for each day.

References

Using your graph overview as an entry point

Problem

You want to share your Roam database with others but a Page may not provide enough context to serve as an entry point.

Solution

Tommy Collison shares a link to his graph overview of his great books project. This is user friendly way of sharing your database.
