Could someone explain how the "inbox" capability works?

Aubrey,

What "inbox" are you referring to?

I have seen it referenced in other posts.

The Inbox is currently available in mobile versions of TheBrain (iOS and Android) and is a method of sending web links from a bookmark on the browser to TheBrain. So when you are on a webpage you want to send to TheBrain you click the Bookmark. When you are ready, you can then open TheBrain (mobile version), create a new thought, and when you add an attachment it will give you the choice to add any web pages you added to the inbox via your browser.

So, all that is a long way of saying, it's a quicker way of sending stuff to TheBrain to attach to thoughts. 

The discussions around the inbox now are because this feature is being planned to be introduced to TheBrain 9 desktop, and possibly allow mailing items to it. [smile]

It would be nice t update this thread with how we should do on v 9.1. I can't see the bookmarklet, or is there a share sheet?

Enable in the bottom row of the share sheet.

Thanks Zenrain, I was looking for the share sheet with a text selected (thinking that maybe it was possible to send a clip directly to TB). But I found it: so basically we can send documents and weblinks. Great (but still hoping we'll be able to send a clip someday).

I may be ignorant here, but where/what is the share sheet? I am also looking for how to send something to the inbox of thebrain in IOS. Found the inbox in thebrain app, but cannot see anything referring to thebrain in safary or other apps, also not in the icon box with up arrow, which I would think is the share button?

Yes, the square box with the up icon. then scroll all the way to the right on the bottom row and click the More ... button. Make sure Add to TheBrain is enabled.

I noticed that when taking screenshots on iOS and pressing share while viewing it, TheBrain does not show in that menu. Have to save screenshot and view with photo-app for being able to inbox it.

The ability to Add to TheBrain from a screenshot directly has been added to the upcoming release.
