Hello! I am looking for a tool to aid my research for an investigative story. I have people, companies, actions, and dates of those actions. So, I might have [Person A] [invested in] [Company B] [on April 1, 2018].
I am looking at Tinderbox for this (among other tools like Brain, Devonthink, and so on). I can obviously see how to use notes for Person A and Company B.
What I can’t figure out is how to display the action, and the date it took place. I can do a link, but the only way to have the link show [invested in] is to assign it as a link type, and that way seems to me to be a long-term disaster. (Link types for every type of action.)
And, I can’t figure out how to add a date to it, either.
Do I need to make actions into notes, with a date attribute? Then link through the action? That seems pretty busy, especially since one person might have tens or hundreds of actions I’m trying to track.
I’ve thought about doing this with some sort of wiki tool, but I really like the ability to explore relationships visually.
If you have suggestions, I’m certainly open. And if you have other software I should look at, let me know. Thanks!
