Getting Started With Logseq Workflow Design ft. Dario da Silva (OneStutteringMind)

You can use Logseq for nearly anything; from simple scratchpad to fully-fledged project management tool. But how do you go from just taking notes to running processes, all within Logseq?

On Wednesday the 30th of March, our community manager Ramses was joined by Dario da Silvia to talk about designing workflows for Logseq. Dario runs the popular YouTube channel OneStutteringMind and has helped many knowledge workers think more clearly about how to get results with Logseq.
