Hi all, I’m figuring out Obsidian but haven’t been able to find and answer to this question yet by Googling.
I am collecting a lot of data and wanted to start organizing it in a way that dataview can use it. However, the entries in these tables sometimes need to be pages themselves.
For example, I want to have a page about a ship, and this ship has a managing company, which also has its own information so this should be a page too.
This doesn’t look as clean as it would in the yaml, and I don’t know if this can show up in a dataview table of all the ships.
I am probably misunderstanding how Obsidian works in some way, any help would be much appreciated!
Another example of how I want to use this, is to organize my contacts. I would like to have a page per person, where I save their e-mail (shouldn’t be a page), company (should be a page) and projects the work on (also should be pages). It would be nice for this to be viewable in a nice dataview table
I thought I should in the yaml metadata do something like:
However, the yaml breaks if I use [[company x]] as input here. I also heard that backlinks etc don’t check the yaml, so I would lose some functionality of Obsidian by hiding this information in the yaml.
I am currently saving the information under headers
