What is a document, and why would I need it?

A document in Dynalist can be used to organize things in the same way you organize files on a computer. For example, you can use it to separate your "Todo list" from your "Favorite movies".

Some users like to have everything inside a single document, and that's totally cool as well. You might want to hide the file pane for more screen space though.

With documents, you can

  • See what you have at a glance.
  • Navigate between documents quickly using the file panel.
  • Go to any document by simply typing part of its name in document search mode (Ctrl-O). For example, you can type "home proj" to find "Home Improvement Project".
