Getting Started

Intro to Saving. Be better than bookmarks.

What you will learn.

Improve your organization and focus by saving your important data resources and apps in one place.

  • Access, search and share your saved links at blazing fast speeds
  • Uncover relationships in your data with contextual recommendations
  • Save what you want in a flash

Fragmented (and siloed) data sucks.

Most web browsers force you to use different managers to access and get the most out of your history, bookmarks, and tabs. This siloing of the core features that you use to organize your data, leads to fragmentation which makes it harder to access information.

This access problem gets worse when you include the data you have scattered across all the tools you use in the browser.

Each App brings with it, its own siloed organization of data: recents, saved, starred, favorites, etc.

Access all your siloed information in one place!

The Knowledge Navigator overlay makes it easy to see all your browser tabs, browser history, browser bookmarks, saved resources, and other information in one place. You can easily filter things down by a given relationship, like some App or Context.

  1. Open the Knowledge Navigator by pressing Opt ⌥  Space (Mac) or Ctrl  Space (PC) over any website.
  2. From there you can select “All tabs”, “All saved”, “All history”, and more from the left-hand side menu. See everything neatly organized in one place and get back to you want in a flash!

Searching for information should be easy.

KnowledgeOS (”KOS”) helps us easily access the information we need via ONE search bar! ✨ This search bar is called the Knowledge Navigator.

KOS further improves our ability to quickly access the right search results by deduplicating bookmarks, tabs, history, etc.

And then, KOS also contextually ranks and presents other relevant results, including contextual actions and search engine recommendations!

Wow! So cool. 😎

Should a webpage you currently have open in a tab, previously visited, and also saved as a bookmark exist as 3 separate search results in three separate search bars? Probably not.

KnowledgeOS deduplicates disparate references to the same website by combining them into a singular “resource” that lets you easily see your comprehensive history with that resource along with any relevant connections to the rest of your work.

When you upgrade to KnowledgeCore, you will also be able to see all the emails, Slack messages, Google Doc files, Asana tasks, etc. that also reference this website. This brings together your browser organization and all the work scattered across your various tools.

  1. To easily get back to a website use the keyboard shortcut  Opt ⌥   Space  on a Mac or  Alt   Space  on a PC.
  1. Type your query.
  2. Select the saved link from the drop-down.

How to save resources with KnowledgeOS.

Link saving is designed to solve problems with access, siloing, and search. Saved links make it easy to access and share your most important resources. Saving a link creates a searchable shortcut and keeps your history with this link.

Browser bookmarks are outdated. Saved resources on KnowledgeOS offer a modern solution to bookmarking.

  • KnowledgeOS lets you share saved resources contextually, unlike most most browser bookmarks which require an import/export tool for sharing.
  • You can keep saved resources in sync with others on your team.
  • Saved resources are easily accessible via a unified search, which shows you related tabs, history, and more.
  • Saved resources can exist in multiple link sections simultaneously. This builds more meaningful relationships between your data by breaking out of siloed folder structures.
  • Saved resources work with Chrome features like copy link to highlight. This allows you to jump to the highlighted text on a page.

When to use link saving:

  1. Saved resources organize the websites you don’t want to keep open but need frequently.
  2. Saved resources also make it easy to share many bookmarks with your team.
  3. Saved resources help you better understand your team's history with each saved link.

  1. To save a website with KnowledgeOS use the keyboard shortcut **Opt ⌥ Space** on a Mac or **Ctrl Space** on a PC.
  2. Choose the correct Context or type in the box to create a new Context.
  3. Choose an existing section or type in the box to create a new link section. Press enter.
  4. Press enter or click “save this webpage”.
Tabs that you need to reference don't need to stay open all the time. Saved links create a core set of resources for your toolkit

What are Link Sections?

Link sections help you organize your saved resources within Contexts. You can think of them like “Tags” and create your own categories in whatever way is most useful to you. As shown above, you can choose existing link sections or create new sections within each Context by typing in the corresponding text box while you save. The same link can exist in many link sections simultaneously.

A Context is a way of organizing information that is more powerful than a folder. You can associate any type of information with a Context including tabs, saved resources, browsing history, files, messages, tasks, etc.

Link Sections can be accessed via the Knowledge Navigator as shown above, as well as via the Home Tab. When you go to the home tab in an open Context, you will see a “Dashboard” with all the saved resources in that Context. In that dashboard you will be able to create, edit, and reorganize saved links and link sections as necessary.

How to share saved resources with KnowledgeOS.

Your tabs are very personal and they are always private in KnowledgeOS (aka. never shared with other people). Sharing a Context with collaborators is an easy way to share resources contextually (e.g., by project or team) while keeping your working tabs private.

Sharing bookmarks (aka “saved resources”) in KnowledgeOS is also extremely easy. Sharing is can be easily managed either by Workspace or by Context. You can choose to share all the saved resources in a given Context with specific team members or with everyone in your Workspace.

Inviting collaborators to a context to a workspace creates a shared dashboard for your most important resources so that you can keep everyone aligned on what matters.

To share your links with your team follow these steps:

  1. Click the home tab (the pinned KOS tab in the top left of your browser - the icons for this tab will change depending on which Context is open).
  2. Click share this context.
  3. Type in the name or email address for the desired recipient.
  4. Type in any message you would like to share with this group of saved links.
  5. Click send!
