Roam Usage Patterns


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


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.


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.


Using your graph overview as an entry point


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


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