A Close-up Look at the Datz DEVONthink Database Schema

Today’s video is about schema: the group hierarchy in my database. First I show some footage of my very first steps of creating groups and adding some content into the database. Then I show how the Datz DEVONthink database is currently organized–the schema I am using–and talk about why I made certain decisions. Finally, Ada joins me to ask questions and share some of her insights as a process and efficiency expert.
