Ever since the first release of Nemo Documents we have tried to make file finding and file management easier. We have introduced various concepts such as putting files into a calendar view, adding tags and the ability to filter by file types. The time aspect has always been key, and that is why Nemo Documents looks like a calendar.
Like a file manager, until now we have only used the last modification time when showing files. But with the 1.1.0 version released today, we are finally able to show all the times a file has been modified. And the good thing about this, is that it is natural for a file to occur multiple times in a calendar view if it was changed several times.
This means that we are now able to much better keep our promise of: Whatever you remember about a file, you can input it into the system, and you will be able to find the file again. So if you changed a file last week, you can now find it again that way, even if you also changed it this week.
To make it easier to distinguish between the latest modification of a file and older changes, changes are slightly more gray.
Please note that Nemo Documents will only start recording file changes after 1.1.0 has been installed. And it will record and show at most one per time block. Meaning one per month in year view, on per day in month view etc.
File changes is a concept that is very natural to the way we built Nemo Documents, and is one of the more requested features we have. The feature request also show that people come up with all kinds of uses for Nemo Documents we had not envisioned. And that is something we are very excited about!
Happy holidays 🙂
