Atoms can be captured to extract insights and key details throughout your workspace and they can be linked to other pages in your workspace, which appear as Tags next to the Atom.
The links and connections between atoms and different pages can be used to enable access to your atoms throughout your workspace through Inheritance and Filters.
Atom Inheritance #
Atoms captured in a sub-page will automatically be inherited by the top level page
2. Linked Pages
When linking pages to other pages, there is a further option to inherit the atoms from linked pages by setting the relationship between the current page and linked page to Parent (pass atoms to linked page) or Child (inherit atoms to current page).
When the pages are just linked, there is no exchange of atoms between them.
When creating a link between two tables, there’s an Inheritance option in the Property Options
- Inherit Atoms from ‘Linked Table’
- Pass Atoms to ‘Linked Table’
- No Inheritance
Similarly to Linked Pages this defines whether atoms captured in the Linked page are inherited by the Current Page (Inherit Atoms) or atoms captured in the current page are inherited by the Linked Page (Pass atoms).
See how inheritance has been used to gather atoms together to write a blog on Protolyst
Atom Filters #
In Tables, the Atoms property will display all atoms related to the top level page in that table.
- Atom Count
Within the Atoms property options, you can set the column to display the number of atoms instead of a list of atoms using the Atom Count toggle.
2. Filter by Linked Pages
Filters can be used to display atoms of a page within the current table, that are also tagged/linked to another chosen Page within the workspace.
Filtering is useful to separate atoms out across different topics of interest.
