Working with Obsidian Notes

Installing Obsidian Notes

The main software that we would be using here is Obsidian which can be downloaded here.

Install the software as soon as the download was finished, and from there, you can create a new vault and start making notes, make sure to name your vault and pick a place to put your vault to keep things organized.

Noticing that there is an option to place your vault. We can use cloud storage to give people access to the same vault anywhere by setting up a cloud drive.

Setting up a Cloud Drive

Once Obsidian was done, we can leave it, for now, to set up some things that we need to use Obsidian efficiently. One of the good ways to use obsidian notes is to have cloud storage available to everyone, so the notes would be accessible by the group or specific individuals you need to access it.

For this documentation, pCloud will be the software that would be used for cloud storage. pCloud can be downloaded here. After downloading the installer, proceed to install the software and launch it after installing. At this point, proceed to login into your pCloud account (you can create one if you don’t have an account yet).

Once having a pCloud account, you will have cloud storage that will serve as a medium to place our obsidian notes to share with others. After installing pCloud and having an account, there should be a new drive that would be available on your computer’s files, typically named “pCloud Drive (P:)

From there, you would have your cloud storage. pCloud has some features that allow you to share the folder with your friends, request files, etc., which would be great for collaborations.

Collaborating Obsidian Notes

Having the cloud storage prepared before, in this section, I would discuss how to share your Obsidian notes for collaboration with other people. Starting from the Obsidian Notes, create a new vault, name it on your preference, and then place the vault inside the cloud drive as its location.

Now you have your vault set inside the cloud drive. To share your vault with other people, share your cloud storage from your file explorer. Right-click on the folder that you want to share, hover to the share, click on Invite people, enter the person’s email address that you want to invite, and send the invitation.

Receiving Invitation POV:

To accept an invitation from pCloud, open the pCloud software, hover to the shares; from there, you can view all the invitations people sent you.

As Default, it would show named as “Shared” from the cloud drive. All shared folders would be located there.

And to access their notes, from the Obsidian software, you just have to open the vault on the location where they have it. In this case, their notes was located on Inventive Horizons Notes>Daily Notes

There you have it, you can collaborate notes as long as everyone saves it on the same folder on the cloud storage.

Additional Information can be found at this link.

Managing all projects

On the projects tab, you can view the projects that you’ve starred, recently opened projects, and also the option to view all the projects made and creating a new project.

Projects tab

Upon viewing all the projects, it shows all projects made by your team, and it also shows the Key project, the type of project, the lead, and the category of the project. It gives you the option to sort it by project type or categories, and it even gives you a search button if you’re still having a hard time looking for a specific project. You can still create projects using the top right button.

Viewing all projects

Managing a specific project

Upon opening a specific project, you’ll be able to see certain types of menu like the roadmap, backlog, board, reports, code, add an item, and project settings.

Roadmap

Roadmaps are one of JIRA’s features built to illustrate the team’s strategic vision and to show the teams what they should be working on. Jira roadmaps give you the ability to connect tasks into a broader product strategy and to order tasks and priorities based on consumer feedback. Everyone on the team can access the information, and the leader can also change the roadmap when needed.

Roadmap

Backlog

The backlog is the next step after figuring out and setting up your project, and it could also be for anything like a product or a service. It is the section wherein you set-up the things “to-do”(which is called issues). Still, normally it isn’t listed in the form of a detailed summary, more like in the form of a story, like “As a user, I want to do this and that,” but in the end, it’s really all up to you on how would you set it up to makes things understandable for your team.

Backlog Section

A small section would open in the write by Clicking the issue, showing you additional details that you can add or edit, like a description bar, assignee, labels, sprint, etc.

Editing Issues

Board

A board is a section where it shows you the issues created of a certain project that you are currently on. It is possible to have multiple boards on a single project if you are working and segments. In this section, you could also sort the issues by epics, types, or even group them to have them organized. Creating an issue would automatically put it on the “TO DO” column by default, but it also gives you the ability to add or edit columns depending on your system.
