I like the Brainbox feature, but the workflow with the current user interface of the Brainbox feels inconsistent. I propose and request to have the Brainbox as a thought in the brain (everything added to the Brainbox will be added as a child of this thought), so that the 'gardening of my brain' workflow is more consistent.

Thanks for considering!

Best, Koen

I like that idea of making everything added to BrainBox as a child to a base "BB" thought; I'm doing this manually now (as I described elsewhere in Forums a while ago), where I created a "BrainBox Intake" thought, then add the thoughts in the BrainBox to that thought as a first step; that gets them out of the BrainBox and makes them immediately searchable.  Then, I can connect them to other thoughts as I wish.

I've found that this step works a lot better if I process them from my iOS devices, rather than from TB on my Windows 10 PC; there is usually a several second lag for the process (using either drag and drop or the + option in the BB menu), and often, the attached article title isn't copied on Win10 TB, requiring more manual editing in the thought properties, but if I do it on the iOS device, either iPhone or iPad, it works much faster and seems always to get the title right.

So, if BB items became additions to such a thought instead of in the BB separately, it would save quite a lot of manual processing.

PaddyVA, I have an identical workflow

I would love this, since the consistent metaphor of "everything is a thought" is one of the most powerful features of TheBrain.

As it is now, I don't use BrainBox — I find it no more convenient than adding something to TheBrain by hand.
