DataOrganizer

Videos

Importing data from other apps

DataOrganizer can import data from Bento 4 and BayCard 1.5 (DataOrganizer’s predecessor). It can also import CSV and TSV files. The below video will show you how to import data.

Libraries, stacks, and cards

The below video will show you how to create libraries and stacks. (A stack is essentially a “sub-library”). It will also show you how to add cards to both libraries and stacks.

Smart stacks

The below video will show you how to create and edit smart stacks. (A smart stack is criteria-based and is similar in idea to a smart playlist in iTunes.)

Fields

The below video will show you how to add fields to a library. The end result will be an Issues library.

Note: Because DataOrganizer already includes an Issues template, you typically would not need to create one from scratch. However, the goal of this video is not only to show you how to create fields, but to demonstrate that libraries created using templates are no different than any other library.

The below video will show you how to rearrange fields using drag-and-drop.

The below video will show you how to move a row of fields using drag-and-drop. (Hint: Hold down the option key.)

The below video will show you how to use the media collection field and the 5 “list fields”: the simple list field, contacts list field, calendar events list field, files list field, and the mail messages list field.

The below video will show you how to link one library to another library using the relationship field.

Recently deleted

Like Apple’s Mail, Photos, and Notes apps, objects (libraries, cards, stacks, and fields) are not immediately deleted after your press the delete key. Instead, they are moved to a section known as “Recently Deleted” where they will remain for 30 days. The below video will show you how this all works.

Global searches

Unlike smart stacks, global searches will search the entire database. The below video will show you how to perform a basic global search.

The below video will show you how to include spaces in search terms by making use of quotes.
