How to use "inbox" feature?

This post was last updated for 228 days ago, and the information may already be changed

As a lifetime user, how do I use the Inbox feature? The instructions in the user guide are very superficial. It only talks about API, where to find it, but it doesn't show how to use it. Thank you.

      Hello, Inbox currently only provides APIs for external applications to connect.

      Okay, thanks for the feedback. But, would there be an application as an example, so that I can find a use for Cloud Inbox? For example, the Capacities app has connectivity with Telegram and WhatsApp. Would it be possible to use the SiYuan API to do the same?
      Personally, I would really like it if it were possible to copy text excerpts and send them directly to Inbox, more or less like the Citanotes app does.

      There should be no connected program at present (as far as I know). This requires third-party applications to be developed and connected.

      In China, an example has been developed to connect to WeChat, which allows you to send messages to SiYuan in the form of conversations.

      I think Telegram and WhatsApp should be able to do something similar, but there is no doing yet.

      I have the same question. Is there any news on using the inbox feature with e.g. WhatsApp or Telegram or email? Or did anyone set it up with other apps? It would be such a great feature to collect content, in particular on mobile (since no native sharing feature is available to date).

      I noticed that a new “Telegram Inbox” plugin has been added to the marketplace, anyone interested can give it a try.
