Viewing Generated Reports

To access and view your generated research reports in Athena Intelligence, follow these steps:

First, navigate to the left sidebar and select Drive. This section displays all your stored documents, including any generated reports.

Locate the research report you want to view. The reports are usually labeled based on the topic or title you provided during the report generation process.

After finding your report, click on it to highlight. Open the file management menu by right-clicking or using the available options.

From the file management menu, select the option to Download the document. The report will be downloaded to your local machine.

Once the report is downloaded, you can rename it for better organization. To do this, find the file in your local file explorer, right-click on it, choose Rename, and type the new name.

Organizing Downloaded Reports

After you have downloaded your research reports from Athena Intelligence, it's important to keep them organized. Here are some tips to help manage your reports efficiently.

  • Use clear and descriptive file names that include the report's subject and date. For example,

  • Create folders for different categories or topics. For instance, you might have folders for market research, company profiles, and quarterly reviews.

  • Store your reports in a dedicated folder within your file management system. This ensures they are easy to locate when needed.

  • Utilize subfolders for additional organization. For example, within a company profiles folder, you can have subfolders for each company.

Proper organization of your research reports can save you time and make it simpler to find relevant information when you need it.

Use Clear Naming Conventions

Name your files clearly by including the topic and date. This helps you find and organize them easily later.

Using Obsidian Features

Using Obsidian to enhance your workflow with the reports generated by Athena Intelligence can significantly streamline your data management and organization. Here are some helpful tips to get you started:

  • Organize Sections: When you import the markdown file from Athena Intelligence into Obsidian, take some time to organize the sections. Use headings and subheadings to create a clear structure. This will make it easier to navigate through the report.

  • Use Links and Tags: Enhance navigation within your markdown files by using links and tags. Tags allow you to categorize information, making it easier to find related content. Links can be used to connect different sections or related documents, providing a seamless way to move between them.

  • Leverage Backlinks: Obsidian's backlink feature can help you see which notes are connected. This is useful for understanding the relationships between different pieces of data and for creating a network of interlinked information.

  • Utilize the Outline Feature: The outline feature in Obsidian shows an overview of all the headings in your open note. This helps in quickly jumping to a particular section of your report without scrolling through the entire document.

  • Regularly Review and Update: Periodically review your notes and update them with new information or remove outdated content. This keeps your data relevant and useful.

Use Tags for Better Organization

Tags help in categorizing and quickly locating key sections in your report. Consider using them for important topics, references, and sections.
