I ran into trouble today when I went to “Focus” expecting to see everything that is due today and could not find some tasks that I KNOW ARE DUE TODAY.
Upon searching I found the tasks in “Scheduled” . Shocked that even though they are due today they did not show up in Focus , I thought to abandon using Focus altogether and just use "Next " to find everything that is due today.
To my utter horror and grimmace, projects that are due today did not show up there.
And I realized the painful reality.
In order to find out everything I have due today, I am forced to track THREE DIFFERENT LISTS at a time.
If a project is due then on the day it is due, that project I EXPECT TO BE A NEXT ACTION; whether or not it is scheduled or not.
If I can’t see everything in one place, things are going to get mismanaged.
I’m not gonna try and remember to star the projects I need in Focus. If it is due today THAT MEANS I NEED TO KNOW.
To top it off , Everdo currently does not have reminders/ notifications .
And I am guessing that this is one reason why. In order to have notifications you will need to have a list for everything that becomes due today and that list will need to push tasks one by one to the notifications.
We need to be able to see everything due today in one place somewhere. Starred items should be something else and they SHOULD BE CALLED PINNED ITEMS. Items that I pin should not be automatically pinned.
You are mixing Pinned items and Due items and Tasks in “Focus” and it is really messy.
