The service provides search and retrieval across multiple storage and data repositories to identify items in different locations that have relevance to a common topic or project. Users can link files stored in local and cloud storage platforms, calendar items, social network posts, and other kinds of content created and held in separate locations. Retrieval then gathers linked items to support work to which they all relate.
API methods support creation of a unique identifier (URI) for "things" of many types, including notes, bookmarks, files, locations, people, organizations, etc. Each identifier is linked to others with some shared relevance for the user, along with location that allows retrieval. Linked things can then be retrieved together, wherever they may be stored or physically located.
