Show Children of Original Note with Agent Alias?
Dec 15th, 2012, 10:53pm
 
I'm using Tinderbox to track student advising by creating a note for each student. For each student note, I create a child note for each advising meeting that we've had, using the meeting date as the note title. The point is that every student note has one or more children. I have an agent that collects current advisees (students who have not yet graduated, transferred or switched majors).

The behavior that I want is for the aliases to appear in the agent, using the Explorer view, just like the original notes do - with their disclosure triangles allowing me to view and edit the children of the note. My agent collects the right notes, but all I see is the note name (student name) in italics. Is there a way to include the children in the agent query somehow?

Aliases can not have children, so No. If you open the aliases original this inconveniently shifts the entire focus of the main view - something I find I rarely want and not of use in your scenario. The best suggestions is to open a new view and then use Show Original. In shortcut terms thats [Cmd]+[Opt]+O then [Cmd]+[R]. If you want the new view to be a map use 'M' instead of 'O' for the first part.

You can't automate the latter within TB but you could use something like KeyboardMaestro to save the above as one command.
