The Dashboard

As soon as you open Notes, you'll see the dashboard. The dashboard is your home screen. From here, you can access all of your notes, both private and collaborative. Sort between favorite and deleted notes in the left sidebar, and view your recent notes in the center of the interface.

Notes are empty documents ready for you to add your thoughts, ideas and plans. Notes can be personal (accessible only to you) or made available to other users and groups, allowing you to create beautiful documents together with your team. You can access all the notes you are a part of in the dashboard. Each note can be developed further by adding pages.

Adding Content to Your Notes

Notes aren't like a traditional word processor. In MeisterTask, your note's content is split into blocks which can be formatted depending on the type of content you want to create.

There are over 15 different styles of content block: you can format text as headers, to-do lists, images, code snippets and much more.

Note Hierarchies

Notes are organized into Note Groups > Notes > Pages > Sub-Pages. The diagram below shows a quick overview of each level:

  • Note groups are only visible to you. They affect the organization of your personal dashboard.

  • Notes form the basis of sharing. Sharing a note will also share its pages and sub-pages.

  • Pages exist within notes. Pages can be moved, duplicated, and converted into templates, but cannot be shared individually. Pages can also be reorganized interchangeably with sub-pages.

  • Sub-pages exist within pages. Sub-pages can be reorganized interchangeably with pages.
