Maybe my need for articles precisely is a bit too specific, but at least a chrome extension that saves content, url, pdf is a generic one.
And I agree with @Oshyan that the point of Fibery is to avoid too many integration tools. Especially, in this case, it is not complicated to have a simple chrome extension that saves the page to an Entity (need access to Fibery API and authentication to the user account). Notion has one.
The point of Fibery is to organize our knowledge, part of it comes from “raw sources” that are web pages and documents. It is important to keep track of thoses.
And once the web page is in Fibery, we have all the power of Fibery to link to unique Entities, comments, highlights, etc.
I cannot do that with Notion for example, since everything is a page/document and not a structured entity.
I want to keep knowledge of all the organizations in our space (clients, competitors, providers, partners, companies in our ecosystems). Since one organization can have several hats (eg. client + being a data provider to us) I have created an entity type Organization, with several fields to describe the relationship, and an entity type Service to describe the services that this organization provides. The Services themselves have fields to described if they are competitors to one of our services, or if they are a potential tech or data provider, etc.
If an Organization is a client, it is linked to an Account entity in the CRM app.
I also have an Article entity type, and I would like to easily record all articles that are relevant to my company and linked them to the entities (Organization, Services, etc). The real values are:
- by linking the entities we ensure that there is one unique entity. In systems like Notion, there are more chances that someone creates a duplicate entry since there is no concept of types
- the back-link reference: having the entities in the content highlighted is great, allow to navigate easily to those entities, but it is nice to have (the user could do a search in Fibery), the real value is the back-link, having a list of relevant Articles when looking at any Entity
- comments: would be better to have there and record than having in a slack thread, scattered in different channels
I see a lot of value in doing that to help the people in the company to have a clearer view on client, competitors, etc. Especially for new joiners. If someone talks about a company, they could look up Fibery and have much more context than just looking into SalesForce (just deal context) or search in slack…
Someone could argue that a google search on the company name is the same, but it means that every newcomer would have to read lots of not-so-good content to reach the same level of understanding. Our Articles are curated versions of what matters to our company, with context.
