Welcome to another video about Tana! Today is a short one and I want to share with you the easiest way I see to get started using Tana if this is your first time using a more flexible app for knowledge.

There are two kinds of people I come across in the Tana Community. People who are used to tools like Roam or Logseq where you can dump things in and find them later. And people who are used to more structure in Notion or Obsidian.

So whether you're coming from either sides of the spectrum there are two things you need to do to get started in Tana to feel confident to find things again. And they are Capture & Search.
