And if you belong to more than one of the groups of people below, and possibly others, you can use Memozine for all the purposes that we have listed, and more, so that all the personal information that matters to you is kept in one place and is readily available!
Record details of companies and people they are in contact with or interested in, including general information (e.g. market sector, turnover, number of employees, job title, decision making level), contact details (e.g. address, email, telephone, links to web sites) and free-form notes and comments. Record relationships between people and organisations. Organise clients and prospects into groups. If selling products, define custom entities to represent those products and cross-reference with clients and prospects. Keep a diary of business activities and contacts. Search through business contacts using any combination of criteria based on the recorded information. Perform complex queries as needed, such as “find all decision makers who work for any IT company based in Yorkshire and who I have met during the past three months” or “find all companies that I see as prospects for my software product but are also clients of one of my competitors”.
Maintain a catalogue of the collectables they are interested in, including any relevant information such as price, value, desirability, introduction date, number of items produced. Classify into groups. Illustrate with pictures. Add links to suppliers, with contact details and comments. Register each item they have in their collection, with a link to the collectable of which the item is a copy or specimen. Record data about each item, such as date of acquisition, price paid, estimated value, condition, version, limited edition number. Include photos or scanned certificates or documents. Produce complete or selective lists of items. Search for items that they have or do not have in their collection. Perform complex queries as needed, such as “ find all items in my collection that I bought last year from a particular supplier and for which I paid less than £10 ” or “ find all collectables that belongs to a particular category, that I consider as highly desirable, and of which I have no copy in my collection of which the condition is good or excellent ”.
Store information about their favourite dishes in their Memozine database, including detailed recipes and notes as well as searchable attributes such as cuisine type, preparation time, main ingredients, ratings. Add photos, illustrations, links to cookery web sites. Search for recipes based on specific criteria such as “ Desserts that can be prepared in less than 10 minutes ” or “Asian dishes containing chicken but no coriander”. Record the food preferences and dietary requirements of their potential dinner party guests and also the relationships between those people. Keep track in their diary of which dishes they prepared and to whom they served them. Produce a list of dishes that could be enjoyed by a particular group of people, or a list of possible guests based on their likings and/or previous invitations (e.g. “ find all those of my friends and relatives who like Mediterranean food, who are not vegetarian, and who have not already experienced my chicken and chorizo casserole ”).
Define custom entities such as research topics, sources and projects. When going through a particular source (e.g. a book, publication or web site), make notes associated with the source and cross-reference one or several topics; or, when researching a particular topic, make notes associated with the topic and cross-reference one or several sources. Assign a category and/or a level of importance/significance to each note. Add attributes to sources such as publication date, publisher, library reference, credibility rating. Link sources to authors, and record information about authors such as qualifications, affiliations, dates, biographical details. If appropriate (e.g. if working on different projects that may have some topics in common), link topics to projects. Search through the gathered information by running simple or complex queries such as “ find all notes that pertain to any topic associated with my current project and of which the level of importance is ‘significant’ or higher ” or “ find all notes I have made on the ‘software development’ topic that have a source that was published in the current year, of which the credibility rating is above average and of which at least one author works for Microsoft ”.
Record countries, cities, places of interest that they have visited or want to visit. Record information about hotels, restaurants, airlines, travel agents, etc. with contact details, ratings, links to web sites and comments. Record details of travel documents. Keep a travelling diary, illustrate with photos and maps, and cross-reference with the data recorded about places, people met or travelling companions, services used, items bought, events attended. Search their Memozine database for places visited or places to visit. Perform complex queries as needed, such as “ find all cities in Spain or Italy to which I have flown with a particular airline ” or “find all five star rated tourist sites in Southeast Asia that I have not visited yet”.
Record details of their favourite walking routes, including data such as distance, elevations, level of difficulty. Illustrate with photos and maps. Cross-reference with information recorded about places of interest that may be visited along those routes. Add links to pubs, hotels, shops that may be on or near those routes, with useful information such as contact details, opening times, ratings and comments. Keep a diary of completed walks. Record information about owned or desired walking gear. Search through recorded walks by distance, grade or area. Perform complex queries as needed, such as “ find walking routes that start from Horton-in-Ribblesdale and of which the level of difficulty is easy or moderate ” or “ find all walks of more than 10 miles that I have done last summer in the Yorkshire Dales with my friend Fred ”.
