How to use Memrow

Memrow is a tool for building your personal knowledge base. It's a place to write anything and everything you want to remember, so you can find it later. Memrow notes can be journal entries, meeting notes, lecture notes, book summaries, study notes, or anything else you want to remember.

Memrow is designed to be simple and fast. There are no folders or tags, just notebooks and notes. You can organize your notes however you want, but you don't have to. You can find notes by searching for keywords or by browsing through your notebooks.

But what are notes, and what is a notebook? Let's go through the basic Memrow concepts - it won't take long!


Notes are the basic building block of Memrow. A note is a piece of text that you want to remember.

Reference Numbers

All notes have a reference number, which looks like this: #123. You can see this number by clicking on the note, in the bottom left of the note.

Each reference number is unique, and it never changes. You can use this note to refer to a note from other note, linking them together, by writing the reference number in the other note with a # in front of it.

Reference numbers are like hashtags, but for linking notes.

You can use a reference number to find a note. If you know the reference number of a note, you can search for it by typing # followed by the reference number. For example, if you want to find note #123, you can search for #123.

Similar notes will also show up in the search results, helping you remember what you wrote previously on the same topic.


Notebooks are a collection of notes - think of them like a folder. You can create as many notebooks as you want and put as many notes in each notebook as you want, if you are on the premium plan - free users are limited to 3 notebooks.

If you're just using Memrow for your personal thoughts and ideas, you probably need just one notebook for all your notes.

Notebooks shine when you want to share notes with other pepole. You can create a notebook for your group project, or for your team at work, or for your family. Then you can share the notebook with the other people in your group, and everyone can add notes to it.

Create one notebook per group, and share it with the people in that group. It's that simple!

Try not to create too many notebooks. It's easy to get carried away, but it's better to have fewer notebooks with more notes in each one. This makes it easier to find notes later.

You can see all your notebooks in the notebooks page. To add collaborators to your notebook, click on the notebook, then click on the button to go into the notebook settings page. You will find your current collaborators and the option to add more collaborators there under the Collaborators section.


When you share a notebook with others, they become collaborators on that notebook. Collaborators can add notes to the notebook, and see all the notes in the notebook.

The notebook creator can add and remove collaborators at any time. If you remove a collaborator, they will no longer be able to see the notebook or any of the notes in it.

If you have a premium plan, you can add as many collaborators as you want to a notebook. If you are on the free plan, you can only add up to two collaborators to a notebook.

You can see all the notebooks you are a collaborator on in the notebooks page.
