This Workflowy tip will to sound ridiculously simple to Workflowy power users. It was a bit of a revelation to me, though, and maybe this will help future Workflowy newbies.
Workflowy is SO responsive in normal use that it FEELS to me like a native app, on both Windows and Mac. So, I used to use it like that – bring up a browser window add, edit, move stuff around, etc. But after a while, when my Workflowy got to have lots of branches, and deep, it got to be cumbersome to switch between different parts of it.
Then it hit me… Workflowy is a WEB app… all I had to do to see different parts of my Workflowy simultaneously was to just open additional browser tabs / windows to workflowy.com! Wow… did Workflowy really sing for me after that “discovery”.
The WorkFlowy teams encourages you to try the “star” feature as another way to navigate between different parts of WorkFlowy. Read this blog post about starred pages for more info. In short, every WorkFlowy page has a star at the top right that you can click to save that page. You can then click the star next to the search box to navigate between your starred pages.
