Contacts sync

Once a Google account has been added, we'll start syncing its contacts. This will take a few minutes. Once that's complete, your contacts will be available in the backlink menu.

Calendar sync

We'll pull in your meetings directly next to your daily notes. Only events associated with Google accounts added will be listed.


Adding a meeting

Simply click on one of the meetings listed, and we'll prompt you to Add a meeting. Ostensively this is a shortcut to append a bullet point about that meeting to your daily note. We'll auto-create notes for each of the attendees and backlink them.

What does Create backlinked note mean? Well you may want to create a note dedicated to this meeting if in the future you're going to want to refer to any notes referencing it.

If this meeting is a recurring meeting we'll check this by default.
