Views & references

First we want to thank you for your patience. We’ve been hard at work putting together fundamental pieces which will make Routine unique in the future.

We are very excited to show you what we have done so far, in particular in the form of views…

🍾 New Features

  • We are very happy to introduce views. 🚀 Upgrade now!
    1. Views allow you to visualize data in a different way from how they are usually displayed in calendar, task management or note taking apps.

      To start using views, type /view anywhere in notes:

      The user interface for views
      The user interface for views

      In addition to the user interface, Routine comes with a powerful querying language that allows for more advanced use cases.

      Time for you to start customizing your workflow a bit more (a lot more to come), with the examples below for instance:

    2. Tasks as a board:
    3. Tasks as a board
      Tasks as a board
    4. Overdue tasks from yesterday (could be put in a daily recurring task):
    5. Overdue tasks
      Overdue tasks
    6. Meeting notes of the week:
    7. Meeting notes of the week
      Meeting notes of the week

      ℹ️ For more information, please refer to the knowledge base which has more information about types and views, including many examples.

      Note that views can be resized horizontally:

      Resize view
      Resize view
  • You can now reference (i.e link to another object within Routine) through the use of the @ or [[ symbols
  • References
  • You can also nest/indent your bullet/enum points
  • Nested bullet/enum points
    Nested bullet/enum points
  • As many of you requested, you can now select note blocks by drawing an area with your mouse
  • Select note blocks by drawing an area
    Select note blocks by drawing an area

✂️ Improvements

  • The meeting notes were taking a very long time to load. This has been fixed.
  • You can use CMD+A to (i) select all the text of a block (ii) select the block (if pressed once more) and (iii) select all the blocks (if one block is selected)
  • The bug related to the calendar view shifting when starting on Monday has been fixed
  • The issue related to copied note blocks being lost if a task is checked immediately after has also been resolved
  • The calendar monthly display has been improved: dark mode, double click to create an event etc.
  • Drafting an event without a title while changing its properties made the event disappear. It has been fixed.
  • Calendaring has been improved in multiple ways: all-day events, recurring events, email notifications, performance when switching week/month/etc. and more
  • Improved text formatting which is now more stable
  • And many many more…

🎯 Coming Next

Most likely, the next release will be specific about performance optimizations.

But we continue to work hard on putting together the fundamental pieces that will allow for Routine to be highly customizable to your workflow.

  • Custom types
  • Notes editor
  • Offline mode
