Brainstorming

The first step in any good brainstorming exercise is to dump out as many ideas as you can. Add them all to Unsorted notes as a quick way to record your ideas.

Adding notes from a research session

Following a research session, the first step is to get all your notes out of your notepad and onto the computer. Adding them straight into Unsorted notes means you can record them quickly without having to think about categorising them. 

Once they're all in there, you can drag them out and start to categorise them on the main canvas.

Storing related ideas

Often, you'll be working on an idea and have related notes or inspiration. Unsorted notes is a great place to store them. You can hide them away until you need them again.
