Let me start with some history background before stating my Feature Request.
Just like @nickmilo and many others I am relentlessly looking at new ways to enhance my workflow in order to structure my existing Body of Knowledge (BOK). Let’s call this Knowledge Management (KM) for the sake of this topic.
I don’t know if this idea would help everyone and I don’t know if it resonates but I was thinking of Obsidian as the KM tool by excellence as it captured my attention March/April this year and hasn’t stopped doing that so far. I was a fan from the moment I saw the first screen and fell in love with all the features, the rapid updates and the vibrant community. In such way that I decided to use Obsidian as my KM-tool by preference. A choice I did not regret one second until now. The current state of the tool (Obsidian) allows me to do it in a great way!
What I am struggling with is the multiple external inboxes I need to take care of (Zotero, Feedly, Youtube Watch Later lists, Podcast backlogs,…) which are the digital sources from which I am extracting my own personal thoughts to let them percolate in my Personal BOK.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could just send a mail (or CC one) to an address like name.surname(.insertpoint)@obsidian.md after which the body of the mail would magically be transformed to a Markdown-file (note) at the insert point (Inbox, root folder or other location) of your vault
Tools like Atlasssian for example have this feature built-in in order to enhance their workflows.
Would this be helpful?
