A problem I frequently run into is that (shared) notebooks I create in response to topics on talk.observablehq.com clutter my own notebook index. I have no interest in keeping these around, but moving them to the trash makes them inaccessible.
I’d love to see a feature to hide a notebook from my own index:
The notebook stays accessible to other users.
The notebook no longer appears in my list of notebooks, unless I specifically filter by “hidden” (similar to trash).
Yes, I have this problem too. We don’t have an immediate solution, but we are looking for ways to better organize your notebooks—something beyond just public collections of published notebooks. I like the idea of “resolved” or “hidden” notebooks which are still accessible by link but don’t show up in your list of notebooks.
It would certainly be a useful enhancement, but does not solve my use case: I have several unfinished notebooks that I leave lying around for weeks or months at a time. Without additional filtering I have no means to tell them apart from one-off support notebooks.
Edit: A more flexible alternative to yet another fixed category might be the ability to organize notebooks in custom categories. Tags would be an alternative to categories that can also be integrated into a search.
That won’t work for my case, because many of my in-progress notebooks are also shared. But since I was primarily looking for an estimate on when we might see this addition, “not in the immediate future” is an answer I can work with it.
