Can I ask - do you just copy/paste this template into your daily note each morning? I'm doing something similar (but yours is WAAAAYYY better) and would love it to be automatic, but don't know if that's possible in Roam right now.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi cori,

No problem!

Yep - I keep it in my pinned Goals page, so the side benefit is I'm forced to go in there every day and look at them to get to this template. Then I copy-paste into today's page and go from there.

I know they're planning to add more formal templates in the coming months, so this is definitely a workaround until then. I've seen a few folks on Twitter use keyboardmaestro or Alfred to auto-expand commonly-used templates but I haven't played around with that yet.

Hi, just started using Roam and I like your template. Just one question though, what is the [[2/24 -- 3/1/2020]] in both the morning and evening questions and what is its purpose?

Many thanks.

Thank you!

I structure my weekly agenda by making a page for the upcoming week, so its reference is [[2/24 -- 3/1/2020]] , on which I list one-off tasks/references to projects I want to continue on.

For a while, I was including a reference to it in every block of review questions so they were all findable from that weekly page, but I've since stopped doing that as I find the review questions being tied to the daily page enough for review purposes.

Let me know if you have any other questions/suggestions!

Hey Jonathan, great weekly template. I would be curious, what's behind "Review #[[Index: Questions]] #values"?
