===Memento's structure — the User Interface, Scripting, and Database tiers===
 
Like almost all modern applications, Memento employs a 3-tier structure.
 
 
====Memento tiers====
 
*The '''''User Interface (UI) tier''''' — more properly called the ''Presentation tier''. The UI consists of — on the Mobile edition screens & on the Desktop edition windows — in either edition with cards (forms), menus, toolbars, buttons, and so on — to handle interaction with the user.
 
*The '''''Scripting tier''''' — more properly called the ''Application tier'' — actions taken upon user input or other such events, like the pushing of a button or saving of an entry. These events may be handled ‐ to some degree by Memento & to another degree by the use of '''''scripting''''' — manages these events, some of which are handled by Memento itself and some of which may be controlled by the user, generally in JavaScript.
 
*The '''''Database tier''''' &mdash; more properly called the ''Data tier'' &mdash; manages ''storage of & access to data''. This tier includes definitions of all libraries, fields (with any aggregations or autofills), entries, links among or relationships between libraries, templates, filters, synchronization of local data with data in the cloud, the <u>partial</u> synchronization of each library with Google Sheets, which can then be saved to Microsoft Excel files. <u>'''This'''</u> synchronization with (spreadsheets in Google Drive, as opposed to libraries in the ''Memento cloud'') of library links, item names names in Single-Choice List, Radio Buttons, Multiple-Choice List, Checkboxes, & List fields, and with tag names in Tags fields.

Desktop index — Navigating the Desktop Memento UI (user interface)

The index to the Desktop edition of the Memento Database
provides links to all the Wiki21 (Memento wiki 2021) pages for the Desktop edition.


Scripting index — Navigating the Memento Scripting or Application tier facilities — Scripting the Memento Database Application

The (almost entirely) edition-independent index to the Memento Database application provides links to all the Wiki21 (Memento wiki 2021) pages for scripting the Memento Database application.

Database index — Navigating the Memento Database or Data tier facilities — Database & Data Structure in the Memento Database application

The index to the (almost entirely) edition-independent index to the Memento Database application provides links to all the Wiki21 (Memento wiki 2021) pages for the Database & data structure areas within the Memento Database application.

Older stuff should by now be in linked pages, but is it?


NOTE: The following was from earlier versions of wiki21 and has been related into its own page — the Home pages of each of the editions & platforms.

Here's more about the obsoleted information below.

« NOTE: As of Nov 2021, this section is merely a paste of the same section for the mobile edition. I don't have much experience with data analysis in the Desktop edition, so maybe someone (Beth, maybe with Ernst's help?) might fix it up to be accurate for the Desktop edition? -Bill »


Memento provides the ability to view entries in the Entries List as a straightforward list of entries. In addition, it provides an assortment of list features the user can use:

  • to sort or view the entries in various orders (sequences),
  • to filter the data to see only the entries you want to see, view entries in groups with subtotals,
  • to chart or view the entries' field values plotted on a chart to give the user a visual image of how the data values relate to each other,
  • and to aggregate or view totals & subtotals, averages, minimums, or maximums.
