We are pleased to announce that we’re releasing a big new feature today: Starred Pages.
As your WorkFlowy account gets bigger, you’ll notice it becomes necessary to spend more and more time navigating around it using the zoom feature, or searching for stuff using the search box.
The starred pages feature eliminates this repetition. Whenever you have a particular page that you view often, just click the star in the top right to save it. You can navigate to any starred page at any time by clicking the starred page icon in the top bar (next to the search box) or with keyboard shortcuts.
Starred pages remember both where you’re zoomed (if you are) and what you’re searching for (if you’re searching for anything). So they act as save searches as well.
The video above demonstrates the feature and explains the controls. Try it out!
+1 the above request for re-ordering the starred pages.
oh, please, please give us the starred feature on the app. Even as a pro user, I dont get this feature. It seems that paying for the Workflowy upgrade only gives benefits to desk top users, which I am not. I paid US 50 for nothing extra.
I don’t use starred pages. I find it far simpler to use #s on any outline that is currently important to me. When it becomes unimportant I remove the tag.
At the top of my outline I have a field of tags, and #s is one of the top ones. I find this faster and quicker to change than using the starred page. It also works fine on my iphone/ipad app.
any news on starred pages view on mobile apps?
is it so that we can only 4 star pages?
No, you can star more than 4 pages.
Can you reorder the starred pages somehow?
For users with other keyboard layouts, look at a US keyboard layout too find the character. In Swedish, for example, the character “Ö” is where the US “;” is, so the shortcut for “Switch between pages” works with control + shift + ö (at least on a mac).
The star/pages system is great — one of the main reason I’ve jumped on the workflowy bandwagon over other outliners.
But I wonder: could we have more than one type of star?
Because I, like many, use workflowy at home as well as at work, it would be great to be able to see just my home-related pages when I’m home and my work related pages at work (in the pages “drawer” or “dock” or whatever it’s called).
One thing I noticed while learning keyboard shortcuts is that some of them (for example “switch between pages”) does not work for me, since I am on a Swedish keyboard layout.
To get control+”;”, I need to press shift, and that does not trigger the shortcut.
Same problem (but in reverse, maybe) with the “star” shortcut, since I need to shift to get a plain asterisk.
Hi guys, is there any chance that starred pages will make their way into the mobile apps? It seems like the simplest way to manage a big workflowy list when you’re on a small screen.
Yeah, hopefully. We really need to bring mobile up to par with desktop in terms of features.
Hi Jessie, thanks, that would be super useful.
Having the auto tag lookup as you type on the mobile iOS app would be the best new feature. It would save me a lot of time since I am using workflowy in the field a lot.
Really hoping for starred pages on mobile at some point. Even autocomplete on tags would be helpful.
+1. Starred pages on mobile would be massive! WorkFlowy – Please make it happen.
