I found GTD method great so I started with todoist to manage my inbox.
Over last months I used a personal version of GTD (I think) and I wonder if my way to use todoist is compatible with everdo.
I have two mains categories, work and home so I guess is equivalent to areas on everdo.
As I have many project I organized them with multiple sub folder. It’s not possible with everdo right ?
If I have 10 tasks for one project, is it possible to easy see them ?
Every morning I do a quick daily review to assign my next action for the day. Currently, I open my work stuff, choose next action by assigned them a high priority. So my next actions are tasks with high priority, tasks overdue and tasks with today as due date.
So in everdo I change list of my today tasks to next right ? Overdue and today due date are automatically move to next ?
Two things that I like a lot from todoist :
quick add action from statut bar on Android (not from notification)
2 way sync with Google calendar / outlook
These features are plan ?
Thank for your hard work and your help !
Edit : do you plan to add time to scheduled and repeat tasks ? I have many tasks that must be done at specific time and I would like to track them.
The problem is that most lists are manually ordered, which means they cannot also be sorted by other criteria.
In the current implementation the “Due” filter only shows the items which have already become due, meaning the due date has arrived. At some point we want so support the same set of filter as in the Desktop app, including “Any due date” and so on.
Yes, Focus is not a “real” list. It’s just an automatically created set of all starred items. Those items can actually be sitting in any other list.
When you create an item in Focus directly, it will actually be added to Next and it will be starred.
When you star an item in Inbox (or Someday, or wherever) it will remain there, but will become starred (focused) also.
When a scheduled/repeating item occurs, it gets added to Next and starred.
It does count days, but it doesn’t show the counter (yet)
This one is actually same as on Desktop. “Someone” is when a contact you are waiting for is not set explicitly from your list of contacts. Can’t do it on the phone though, but if you sync a waiting item from the computer to the phone, you will see the name of the contact there.
I tried to find on documentation but I didn’t, on scheduled list, some of my task have repeat icon and star icon but some have one more :
What’s the difference ?
I can only find that the second one have repeating + due date but when I add to the first task, the icon doesn’t appear.
On windows, Is it normal that we can’t reorder scheduled task planned for the same day ? I have different review task with hour and I can’t reorder the way I want for convenience.
Edit : in tag you talk about “label” and in side bar you talk about “context”. Mentions must be the same no ?
Edit 2 : some conflict in the statut bar when we have a large area name
Edit 3 : how do you manage horizon in gtd ?
Edit 4 : is it possible to reset days count for waiting for task ? For example, I wait for an update on my bank account but I don’t have news, so I call to have more informations. After my call I need to wait some more so I left the task but I can’t update days count to start from 0.
Edit 5 : on android, is it possible to filter next list by project ? Indeed I need to see my next list without a specific project.
Edit 6 : is it plan to add progress bar of a project to android ?
In this particular case the top action has the usual icon indicating that it’s a repeating action. The bottom action is weird. I’m guessing it used to be a clone of another repeating action which you transformed into a repeating action itself. This doesn’t usually happen. Basically the round arrow icon you are seeing in the bottom action indicates that it is an automatically created clone. more about how repeating items work with pictures
Yes, it’s not possible to re-order the Scheduled list - the order is automatic based on nearest scheduled dates.
The Contexts section contains the tags which start with “@”. Other than that, contexts are just tags.
Everdo doesn’t provide any special functionality for this. There were a few suggestions, but it’s still not clear what the functionality should be.
Move it to Next and the back to Waiting
You either view the full aggregated Next list, or open the specific project to see it’s own Next list.
Could be done at some point, but many other features are in the queue
