For example: I have a process documented. Within this process, there are steps that are their own separate lists. Instead of referencing and navigating to them, it would be great to be able to just insert links.
I think that this featured has already been asked a few times using different words to describe the same function (using aliases for nodes, hiperlinks for notes, different places for accessing to the same none, etc, etc). You might want to vote up those requests, too, as they already have many votes.
I believe this is would be an essential feature that would make WorkFlowy so much versatile and functional in imitating how "our mind works" regarding structural organizations. Many times one can get to the same point by following different paths.
The ability to “Link” or “Assign” a note to any other top-level note or topic, and have it appear there would make WorkFlowy much more powerful. Max described it well, as, “There's only one copy, but there are multiple references (or images)”.
With this feature, if you changed that note, it would appear in its changed form everywhere you assigned or linked it to. This would cure the terrible double-work, uncertainty and errors caused when you have to physically duplicate a note to different top-level notes or topics so it won’t be missed in that different context. I’ve found that as my WorkFlowy File has grown, it’s becoming increasingly hard to manage. If you can’t link old but valuable notes to newer notes or topics, you can easily forget that information, end either do it again or fail to to act on it at all. Worst of all, if you change one instance of that duplicated note, you’d better search for all of them and change them too, or suffer the consequences. When I had only 10 topics or top-level notes, it wasn’t so bad, but now I have closer to 100. Need a fix.
