  1. The basic unit of information is The Note, it can be:
    • Starred
    • Added to the Calendar as Events
    • Addressed and Sent to others via Email
  2. Notes can be organized into Collections
    • A Note can be added to Multiple Collections via drag and drop
    • Collections have 3 views: All, Starred and a Calendar
    • Calendars can be color-coded and overlayed
  3. Each Collection is divided by Triage Status into 3 sections: NOW LATER DONE
    • Events are automatically triaged based on when they happen
    • Events automatically move into NOW when they start
    • You can also set custom Tickler Alarms to automatically move Notes to NOW
  4. You can back up your data, access it from the web and share collections with others by signing up for a FREE Chandler Hub account. See the Get Started Guide for instructions on how to import data, backup and share!
