Tana’s consistent innovation and relentless pace in releasing new features is nothing short of awe-inspiring. In their quest to empower our digital lifes, last week they introduced their latest marvels – Autofill and Autotag. By employing the power of Tana AI, these features are set to redefine workspace organization, delivering unparalleled efficiency and automation of your Tana graph. Let’s dive deeper into how they work and how they can help create a more efficient and automated Tana workspace.
Autotag: Streamlining Content Tagging
Autotag is a robust feature that simplifies the often tedious task of content tagging. By scrutinizing nodes and understanding their nature, Autotag assigns pertinent tags to each, thereby improving accuracy and ensuring uniformity.
Autotag is incredibly user-friendly to configure. In this instance, I intend to use it in a command that operates on a list in my Tana Capture inbox. I can incorporate Autotag within a Run Commands on All Children system command to ensure that it executes on every node of the list.
After executing this command on a list of nodes, Tana takes over and meticulously tags each node according to its content. This not only helps in maintaining an organized workspace, but also makes information retrieval quick and effortless. Most importantly, it accomplishes all of this with just one click of a button, whereas previously, one would have had to manually tag each node or come up with more structured commands to achieve the same result.
Autofill: Intelligent Field Filling
Autofill, a new, innovative System Command available in Tana, takes user convenience to the next level. As the name implies, Autofill offers intelligent suggestions for filling fields based on the node’s name contents.
For example, if a node’s name is related to an upcoming meeting, Autofill can suggest pertinent fields such as attendees, date, topic, you name it! This feature goes beyond by also generating a new title and description for the node, ensuring it remains comprehensive and informative.
Autofill offers more than just intelligent suggestions. It provides you with greater control by allowing you to exclude specific fields from the autofill action. In the video above, you can see that there are several fields in my meeting supertag that I want the autofill to run on. To exclude certain fields, I insert a field definition for each one.
Furthermore, you can opt to run Autofill on GPT-4 for a broader array of suggestions.
Individually, Autotag and Autofill are powerful tools that boost workspace efficiency. When used in combination, they become a super-powerful tool that can increase the speed with which you create structured content in Tana by 10x.
This allows you to transform “Meeting with Andrea on June 7th” into a perfectly structured meeting node with Andrea Faliva as the right attendee (found in my graph by Tana AI) and the correct date. ✨
The Future is AI-Enhanced with Tana
The potential of AI is vast, and Tana is harnessing it to enhance your workspace experience to the fullest. Autotag and Autofill are prime examples of this.
Tana’s Autofill and Autotag are more than just features—they are significant steps towards a fully automated workspace, and as AI technology continues to evolve and improve, I can anticipate even more advanced AI features from Tana in the future, which is frankly mind blowing.
It is important to note that while these features are powerful and intuitive, their effectiveness depends on the specific needs of your workspace and the complexity of your nodes.
As a Tana user, I recommend to experiment with different configurations and setups to find what works best for your workflow. Furthermore, always refer to Tana’s official resources, or join us if you need detailed, always available guidance.
I am also going to cover autotag and autofill during the next Mastering Tana Commands & AI Workshop, which is happening on June 23th (use code QNHTVKOE to get $10 off as a thank you for being a Tana Nodes paid member).
In the upcoming days, I will be sharing additional workflows that incorporate the use of Autotag and Autofill.
However, my primary focus right now is on finalizing Contextual Hierarchy, my new premium template! I am currently testing it with a select group of users and plan to release it for beta testing to Gold members next week.
This has been an exciting journey, as it was developed with the assistance of three exceptional clients from my coaching program. The template is specifically designed for personal note-taking and research, and includes a variety of new AI workflows tailored to meet these needs (Zotero anyone?). I am eager to showcase it to you all soon!
To wrap it up, Tana’s Autofill and Autotag features are not just game-changers, they’re a quantum leap in how we interact with and manage our digital workspaces.
Regardless of whether you’re a seasoned Tana user who’s been with us since the beginning or a newcomer just discovering the power of the platform, these revolutionary tools offer an unprecedented opportunity to elevate your Tana experience.
They have the potential to streamline your workflows, enhance the organization of your workspace, and ultimately, save you valuable time and effort. By intelligently assisting with tagging and filling in details, they free you to focus on what truly matters—your ideas and your content.
As Tana continues to innovate and push the boundaries of what’s possible with AI and data management, I am confident that these features will become indispensable elements in the future of our workspaces.
