orGenta Help Introduction

orGenta is a software package that organizes thoughts and dates automatically by category:



orGenta stores information in Items, Categories, and Notes. A Category is usually a single word; the categories are shown in the left side TreeView panel of the software. You can "nest" categories within one another, for example you may have a category called Friends that has categories nested within it called Joe, Sam, and Marsha. You may nest categories to any depth. orGenta is preconfigured with two special categories, TrashCan and Unassigned, but you may add as many other categories as you wish.

An Item is usually a sentence or two describing a tidbit of information you would like to categorize; the items are shown in the right side Grid panel of the software. An Item is placed within the category where you type it, and any categories that match any of the words within your Item. For example, if you type "Invite Sam and Marsha to the party" then that item will appear under both the Sam and the Marsha categories. Items get assigned in the "background": you may not see them applied until you expand or contract the TreeView.

A Note is usually a long block of text associated with an Item, or sometimes additional information about the item that you don't want automatically categorized. When you click on the Note checkbox, a separate window opens where you may enter the Note text.
