Then you have to create a whole calendar event for the task. That is duplicating a ton of work for yourself. In Todoist I just set the time right there and no need to
- remember the info
- exit out
- find calendar app
- make a whole calendar event re-entering all the information or copy paste
- check back to see if I entered it right.
Plus now you have the trouble of differing tasks you didn’t do to the next day. Now you have to do that in your calendar and in Everdo.
I’ve got five tasks I could do at any one time that I want to bring to my memory at that time so I can choose one.
I’m not gonna enter five tasks for 6:30 in a calendar and try to manage that there, forget that!
That’s the power of a task app on a mobile device. This is the whole point and strength of the evolution of GTD to a computer in your pocket.
It just occurred to me that this means that you are constantly having to refer to both apps. You have to keep checking your calendar to figure out if you got the right tasks on there and then Everdo to see what needs to go on there. No wonder you are wanting calendar integration.
ooOOOooor better yet, how about just adding timed schedules to Everdo.
I don’t want Everdo to give me a better calendar experience so I can spend more time in my calendar app. My calendar is good enough. I want my task manager (Everdo) to be better so I can spend LESS time in my calendar.
timed reminders are your answer. Because you do not have timed reminders you are having to duplicate that work in some other app and that is wearing you out.
I’m just thankful to have a linux app that syncs well. That’s why I left Todoist. As I have probably droned to death by now.
