Input New Data

Here you will learn how to input new data along with best practices.

The input element

After logging in to the Simmify app dashboard and selecting a folder you should see an input element right in the middle of your screen. This element has 2 tabs each representing a mode: "Search" and "Input". You can either select the "Input" tab by clicking on it with your mouse or press the "tab" key on your keyboard (the text selector should be inside the input field for this to work).

Once inside the "input" tab you can select the input field and type anything you want after which you select the button called "enter" or, alternatively press the "enter" key on your keyboard. By using your keyboard you can quickly input multiple rows one after another.

Congratulations! You have created your first entry. From now on it will take approximately 1 minute before your entry has been embedded and indexed. Once this process is finished you are able to search for your data by using the search functionality.

Best practices

Utilizing AI, this search engine offers more flexible methods for storing and searching data compared to traditional approaches. Its power lies in its simplicity.

Organizing your entries

The Simmify search engine is incredibly powerful, to the point where organizing your entries is fully optional. Just inputting all kinds of different topics and matter together into one folder will still yield results without deprecation when using Simmify search. Of course you can still organize your folders by topics for your own convenience.

However, when it comes to sharing your folders it is always a good idea to organize. Everyone you share the folder with will be able to view and delete entries within that folder. So keep any private information in your own personal folders and make sure you don't put anything private into shared folders. You can recognize shared folders by their icon.

Formatting input

The search engine works by extracting the meaning of text. Therefore, adding more contextual information actually improves the search, contrary to traditional methods. For example, you could just input the name "Tesla" as an entry. However, when you search for "car types" it may not have a strong association between the car brand Tesla, since a Tesla can refer to a Tesla coil or Nikola Tesla. So if your intention is to add the car brand, adding the aforementioned contextual information will greatly improve the performance of your search. A better entry thus would be: "car manufacturer: Tesla, Inc.".
