Question: I have more than one child. Do I need a separate account for each child?
Answer: No, you just have to pick the one you love the most. JUST KIDDING (seriously, just kidding!) We approach this with the view that the memories we capture are all part of one big story with several key characters – our children, parents, grandparents, friends. etc. – and we don’t want to separate the characters and lose the richness from their inter-connectedness. Rather than multiple accounts, we think a better way to manage memories for multiple children on Blinkbuggy is to have one account and use the built-in tagging system to associate memories with specific children/people. Here’s an example of how we tagged a picture with two children in it.
Once you’ve tagged your memories, you’ll be able to easily find memories associated with a particular child by filtering tags. To do this, go to “Manage” on the main menu and select “Tags” (“Manage”—> “Tags”). You’ll see a list pop up with all of the tags you’ve used so far (notice in the snapshot below that the two tags we just added, “John” and “Rachel”, are now listed).
Now let’s say that you want to see all the memories associated with ”John”. All you have to do is click on “John” and, as shown in the snapshot below, Blinkbuggy filters out any memory that isn’t tagged with “John”. In this case, one of the memories filtered to also included “Rachel” because she was tagged in a picture with “John” but the second one is specific to John alone.
For right now, you will only be able to filter by one tag at a time but we’re working on making this better! Soon, you’ll be able to filter with multiple tags to really get down to specific memories (for example, filtering by “Rachel” AND “John” to get straight to the picture of them both in the car.)
You can also help distinguish memories for specific children/people with the “Title” field. For instance, in the milestone memory above (right), we’ve added “John” to the title – “John – Walking!”. This is another way to easily see, at a glance, to whom a specific memory relates.
We hope this helps you make the most of capturing your memories. Don’t forget to check out our blog post, Getting Started for tips if you’re just starting to use Blinkbuggy. We also answer some other FAQs.
