Hello Obsidian Community!
I’m now searching for about one hour, but as a non english native speaker it’s quite complicated to find exactly what I’m looking for, and that’s weird because I think it’s a really obvious feature?
Anyway, here’s what I want to do.
I saw a lot of public vaults that have notes, linked to a parent note for a domain, in a “MOC”, field, and that’s nice because I use that too. Where it’s complicated, it’s when I want to summarize every linked notes in the MOC note.
It’s not a big deal to list them manually when you just have three links to create, but when you have over 40 notes for example, it becomes very overhelming.
What I want to do is every time I put a MOC link in a new note, into the MOC note, it creates a link to the new child note at the end.
If you don’t really understand what I say, please ask, I will try to explain myself another way, and also, if you have a better way to do that, just share your experience!
(I can also provide you some pictures if needed)
You can try the AutoMOC community plugin (I haven’t used it). If you use folders, I can recommend Waypoint.
I tried it, but it’s not dynamic. If I create new files with that MOC, it won’t update itself unfortunately…
The issue with Waypoint is the neccessity to create a new folder for each MOC, and it will list everything in the folder.
For example I have a folder with the main MOC inside. But some notes act like this:
So if I use Waypoint for the Main MOC, it will list the lowest level note, and I don’t want that.
I want each MOC to link the direct note or MOC linked to it, not everything in the folder, and I can’t create 20 subfolders too.
Maybe look at the Breadcrumbs plugin. It might require more manual entry than you want, but it lets you set parent/child/sibling relations between notes, and I think it might be able to list all the notes of a certain level (I haven’t used this one, either),
Well, I found my way of doing things.
First, I finally made folders, and it’s very better to use it as a combination with MOCs and tags and not just alone.
Then, in each folders, I have a MOC note with this dataview formula in it:
FROM [[MOC NOTE NAME]]
SORT file.name ASC
And it automatically adds in alphabetical order all the notes related to this MOC.
And finally, if I can automatically list like that: Main MOC>Parents MOCs>Children MOCs>Notes
I think it’s one of the most optimized way to summarize over a long time without losing time and energy to do it manually. Can be easy to find things I wrote just with a funnel system like that!
Thank you for your help! I discovered tools that I’m sure are not adapted with my habits of work and how I see things
