Search Tokens

Dyrii is equipped with a powerful search capability. The search function scans the local data available on the device as well as the data available on the cloud. The toggles for this local/cloud option resides under the search bar.

iOS: You can enter either plain text on the search box or special search keywords such as name of country, city, year, month, type, etc. to find the specific type of entry. These keywords should be prefixed by '@' symbol. For example @photo will find all photos from your journal, @2017 will find all posts from the year 2017, @january will find all posts from January.

Search Keyword Patterns Here are some of the search keyword patterns:

  • @pin
  • @image
  • @photo
  • @health
  • @place
  • @doodle
  • @audio
  • @video
  • @January, @Jan, @Feb, etc.
  • @[City Name]

.. index:: Day Trails

Enabling Day Trails

This feature tracks all the places you visit in a given day and draws it on a map view with pins indicating the places where you stopped over. This feature is turned off my default due to privacy reasons and need to be consciously turned on by the user from Settings > Personalization > Track Places Visited. This feature works by setting a geofence based on your current location and updating the geofence it when you move outside. Since the accuracy of the pins are based on the radius of the geofence, we have exposed the radius as an option that users can configure.

.. index:: Export

Prints & PDFs

A most common use case of exporting data from a journal is to print it or archive it as PDF. Dyrii supports exporting entries as PDFs. This can be done at entry level or view level (e.g exporting entries beloning to a given tag, year etc.). The PDF can be then printed using the default iOS print behavior.

iOS Timeline

In addition to the above, Dyrii contains a dedicated Export panel under Menu > Settings > Manage Data > Export, from where you can export and print with additional options.
