There is one key feature in Roam Research that is critical to my workflow. It is the ability to see all entries that are subordinated to a page in Roam.
For example, if I create the following:
When I click on the Daily Journal page it will show me all of the entries throughout my Roam database that are created and subordinated under the heading [[Daily Journal]].
If I duplicate this same content in Obsidian, when I go to the “Daily Journal” page, the page is empty and I can see the linked mention in the sidebar, but no content.
I know you can add transclusions in Obsidian, but it is not practical for me to manually create a new entry on a page every time I create a new link under [[Daily Journal]].
For example, in Roam I use the following syntax for every meeting I have:
[[Meeting]] - [[John Doe]] - [[Acme Project]]
When I click on any of the above, I can view the content from all of my meetings, or every interaction with John Doe, or anything related to the Acme Project.
I have tried making Logseq and Obsidian play nice, but it is not solid enough for me to trust my data, so I need to stick with either Obsidian or Roam.
Thanks in advance for any help!
