[1.0B/Import] Let user confirm items + display them differently in application

Postby littlebigman » Wed Apr 14, 2010 10:25 am

Hello,

I have another suggestion to make: When importing notes from another CintaNotes SQLite DB file, I would like imported items to be listed in the dialog before clicking OK, so I can review those and include/exclude some of them. Currently, all items are imported, and we're just told how many of them were.

Once the items are imported, I would like those new items to be displayed in a different color in the UI, and have the choice of turning the color off later. For instance, by default, items imported from the last time should be displayed differently until I perform a new import, at which point, items from the n-1 import should be displayed with the usual color.

Thanks for the suggestion.
I have a much simpler way in mind of doing what you want.
This is the ability of assigning some tag to the imported notes, via the "Import" dialog.
This way you can review the imported notes via filtering by this tag and delete those that you don't need.

I'd like to reserve note color for other purposes.

Sure, it's a good solution. I had to go through this again today when importing data from a USB key because I used CintaNotes on another PC.

Another great solution would be to allow users to upload a DB file to an FTP server, and download it to sync data with another CintaNotes setup.

There's possibility to use own FTP server for syncing right now.
You just need to setup the syncing software, like GoodSync.
