If I need a calendar view for events, and periods, and overlapping stuff, and all that - well, I use a calendar.
To me TB is the plex. Thoughts. Links. Notes. Attachments. I want to keep this, but I also want to make a step ahead. The problem: thoughts and links are just text, strings. A thought can not be (so far) a date, or a number, or whatever we need. A thought is identified by it's name. Text. There are no functions, no API (so far). There's a need to have a time aspect in TB, but imho it MUST be integrated into the plex. To me, just attaching a "timeline" to the bottom, and adding an "event" as attachment to a single thought is no solution. Regarding my sketch: it's just a proposal and does not raise the claim to be perfect or "the" solution. To be honest, it's wrong in one central aspect: I shows just one thought, in the middle. But I'm not sure whether the middle should contain (...all?...) thoughts linked to the dates on the left. I just know that I want to have date thoughts in the plex, and some functions to support this (zooming, scrolling), and just some kind of "time view", as an alternative to "Normal View". To me, the "timeline" does not cover any of those wishes. Christian
