Learn about the basics of Speare and the top features

Updated over a week ago

Speare is a tool that allows you to take notes, create documents, write books, organize ideas, manage personal projects, and more.

The Basics

The Library

The Library panel is the primary place where you can access all of the resources (e.g., pages, stacks, databases, boards, and workspaces) in your account. It's also the primary place to create those resources as well.

You're Always in a Workspace

A workspace is a place to work with and organize ideas. You can create as many workspaces as you want.

Write & Take Notes on Pages

Pages are where you write, capture ideas, and take notes in Speare.

The Sidebar

The sidebar is the panel on the left side of the app where you can create pages, stacks, and databases directly inside the current workspace without using the home panel. The sidebar also gives you quick access to your favorites and allows you to organize the content within a workspace.

How to Search

Use the search feature located on the right side of the app bar to find page content and more. Additionally, you can also use the search feature as a way to navigate to other workspaces in your account.

What does the term “resources” mean?

We use this term occasionally throughout the app to collectively refer to pages, stacks, databases, boards, and workspaces.
