Creating Jobs on Notebook.ai

Jobs build words. How do your characters make a living? What skills are the most in-demand?

Creating jobs on Notebook.ai is easy.

To get started, just click Jobs under the "Worldbuilding" header in the site sidebar. You'll be able to see or edit all of your existing job pages and create new ones at any time.

searchable Search your jobs

If you've got a lot of jobs, you can quickly get around to the right one with Notebook.ai's full-text search. It searches your entire notebook for anything you wrote about that job.

You can also filter your jobs by tag, whether you've favorited that page, and which universe it's in.

lock Private by default

Your ideas are valuable. Every job you create in Notebook.ai is owned by you, completely private by default, and only accessible to you.

But of course, you also have full control over that privacy and can share any job page you want, however you want, whenever you want.

star Premium page

Job notebook pages require an active Premium subscription to create, but users on free plans can view and edit their existing job pages at any time.

Notebook.ai is your personal worldbuilding notebook; any page you create is yours forever and you'll never lose access to any part of it for any reason — even if you downgrade to a free account in the future.

Get a head start with a rich job template

Templates on Notebook.ai are what help our unique worldbuilding system better understand your world.

You can fill out as little or as much as you'd like on every new job. You'll see progress indicators every time you edit it to show where you can make progress on, and our system will intelligently generate questions for you around the site that will automatically save your answers to the proper place on your job page.

Templates are also fully customizable across every job in your notebook.

You can browse the default template for jobs here; click any category to see its questions.

vpn_lock Focus on jobs from a single universe

Building entire fictional worlds is hard, and it gets even harder when you've got ideas spanning multiple universes or worlds.

Focusing on a single universe at a time is a good example of how Notebook.ai tries to stay out of your way as a worldbuilding tool, while also presenting your ideas front-and-center for you to work on without distractions.

After you've created a couple universes, you can select any one at any time to filter your entire notebook to just jobs and other pages that exist within that universe, letting you focus on just what's important right then.

group_add Invite others to collaborate

Notebook.ai lets you add an unlimited number of collaborators to your universes. Each one has full access to work alongside you on your jobs and other pages within that universe.

If you have a Premium subscription active, your collaborators can also share all of your Premium perks while working in your universe, too!

Whenever you write an answer to any of these prompts, they'll automatically be saved to the relevant field on your job notebook page and you won't be asked the same question again.
