Daily notes

Your daily notes is your main scratchpad. Every day you get a clean slate. Make it a habit to work here, operating your day. Don’t think about files and folders – just think, type, tag, and trust that your thoughts and tasks are captured.

The today page is your daily scratchpad. Every day you get a clean slate. Make it a habit to work here, operating your day. Don’t think about files and folders – just think, type, tag, and trust that your thoughts and tasks are captured.

Your Today page comes with a supertag out of the box: the #day supertag. It is applied to each day. By default, it is empty, but you can easily customize it by clicking the tag and opening its configuration.

You can add fields to your day if you want to create tables out of it. For example, here you can see how Maggie Appleton does it, where every day has three fields on it: Time Log, What's on your mind?, and Media Inbox

If you have a shared workspace, you can draft notes on your own personal Today page using supertags from the collaborative space. Tana will understand that this belongs in another workspace, so once it is ready to go, you can click the move to button or use the Move to command.

The day page has as much or as little structure as you would like. It can be a blank fresh start you approach with a clear mind, or it can be a structured template for your routines.

Related FAQs

  • Can I open the day node of another workspace by default?

    It is not possible to change which workspace's day node you open by default; it is fixed to your private workspace's day node.

    However, open the sidebar and hold Option (Mac) or Alt (Windows) whilst clicking on a workspace in your sidebar to open its day node for today.
