Has anyone had any success enabling the experimental subfolders with iCloud?
I'm having trouble syncing in the app even though I have made changes in my org dir and I'm not sure if it is an issue with the feature or my unfamiliarity with iCloud syncing. I'm used to Dropbox.
One issue is that I can see my the directory "roam", but there are no files in it.
I can't get this to work properly. I use WebDav, and when I activate subfolders, I don't see my org files anymore. I tried to create a "notes" folder, and put them there, but they didn't show up. When I created a new file, it got stored in the "notes" folder. But when I pressed the sync button, it disappeared.
It's also strange that when I close Beorg and restart, I don't have a notes tab anymore. And when I restart again, it reappears.
How is this meant to work?
+ What extension have you set beorg to use?
+ Can you provide an example of the folder structure you have?
For example beorg should continue to sync with the /org folder inside of which would be a notes folder and other folders (the notes folder name can be changed on the Settings tab).
I haven't set Beorg to use any extension.
My folder structure is
I use WebDav sync, with folder /org
When I disable sufolders in init.org, I get this listing under files tab:
When I tap on notes folder, I get an empty list.
When I enable subfolders in init.org and restart Beorg, I get a "Notes" tab, which is empty. In the Files tab I see only the notes folder. Tapping that folder brings me to an empty list.
All of my tasks from tasks.org are gone.
When I then restart Beorg without changing anyting in init.org, the "Notes" tab disappears, and I see the same as I did when subfolders were disabled. Restarting again (without doing anyting) brings back the Notes tab, and my org files disappear again.
I'll look to spend some time revisiting this, at the very least to get the basic use case of folders working for WebDAV and iCloud.
My use case (simplified) is the following: I have a `notes` folder on org-roam that contains subfolders `notes/topic`, `notes/meeting`, `notes/project` and `notes/area`. I archive by moving files to sub-sub-folders `note/projects/archive`.
I only put TODOs in `area` and `project` files, so those are the only subfolders that go in the agenda. Today I keep only `area`on beorg, so I'm missing some TODOs from `project` files in beorg, which is not a huge deal. It would be nice to be able to add also `project` to beorg, but I agree that it would be too slow to put every subfolder under `notes` in the agenda.
Otherwise, the task management in beorg is perfect for me and does not need to change.
For note-taking, this is what I'm missing, in descending priority:
Apparently, find tasks “in file” does not work if the file is in the subfolder. Find tasks works for other item properties.
Stay safe and thanks,
Are you giving it a full relative path for the file or just the file name. For example f notes/important or f important?
I tried both. Maybe tried wrong. Let me try again.
Thanks, sorry and never mind. Works!
