I non-tag user, even though the option was in front of my eyes, it was like non-existent... I will experiment with the tags, with the Bulk Tagging feature for articles/topics this might provide some interesting filtering options and combinations... Need to plan this carefully, redoing later is not fun. I love this

Still have to figure the best way for entering a text heavy adventure... Does anyone care to share some nice visuals of storyboard with usage of the rest of the fields (not just link to an article)?

The past is a rudder to guide us, not an anchor to hold us back.

True, a problem, but my way around is to create "view tags" tags I think l'll use as a basis for my views.
So while entering an adventure my auto-tag is set on "Adventure XXX"
Then when adding an NPC from that adventure he gets tagged.

Now during prep I need to add some articles to the adventure view (the description of that NPCs home town, part of a different supplement) I add them and then bulk tag.

Why do you need more than 7 views at the same time?

When running a Pathfinder AP, I used one view for the current story (book chapter), and switched the views contents when the party moved to the next section.

Handy for situations where you have put 7+ different books into the tool. You can create a view for them individually. Just makes it neater and reduces the slog on system resources.

Ive got 50+ realms and god knows how much data entered at this point.

I usually have at most 3 views active in my realm. 1 is the area I'm adding view. Whatever region/dungeon/story I'm working on has its own view so I can see what is going on. Then I have a view for what I expect my players to be doing in this weeks game. And sometimes I'll also have a view of the empty and incomplete tags as a sort of todo list.

I've never needed a view of an entire book.
If you set a corresponding source tag on everything in each book then a simple tag-based filter will show you everything from that book.

I wonder what I am doing wrong.

I use neither tags nor views...

Legend has it, that the Tarrasque is a huge fighting beast, perpetually hungry.
Sleet entered History when he managed to get on the back of a Tarrasque only to be ridden out of History shortly after.

They're only useful to cut down on the number of topics presented to you at any one time. If you don't need a reduced set, then there's no reason to use them.
