TW-based solutions I know of.
Maybe GTD is an acronym aiming too high for my simple tool. I have no
and intuitive even for beginners from the very beginning. Something between
it. If I would start today I would look at the trello-ish solutions as
To hide items you wonât or canât work on, you can use tags or priorities.
you could use to filter out certain priorities. Have a look at the
user-filter tab of the plugin, you will find filter examples there.
to eliminate tasks due more than a given number of days from now this way.
done-dates are registered in the tiddler.
Last but not least: No, I do no intend to add more features. My ambition
is to improve existing features and usability. Feel free to add all the
features you like and please keep me updated if you do so.
Great plugin. I'm always on the look for a good task management
application. I have tried dozens of them.
What I value most is the ability to hide items that cannot be done now.
GTD uses "contexts" for this purpose. I suppose a "context" is just a
tag. I can use some special character for tags denoting contexts
your system can accommodate that. But there are two other conditions that
1. Task dependencies. I'd like the ability to hide tasks that cannot be
started before another task is completed. And when the blocking task is
completed, the blocked task should become "active" and show up in the
lists. It helps to unclutter the lists tremendously. Very few otherwise
excellent task management applications allow that.
2. The ability to postpone tasks. Some tasks cannot be started until
some future time. I'd like to have the ability to set this time and hide
the task from the list until that time. Emacs Org Mode uses "SCHEDULED"
attribute for that. Some implementations of todo.txt call it "threshold".
I use this feature most frequently for recurring tasks. E.g. if I just
mowed my lawn, I don't want to see it on my list again sooner than in 2
weeks. And for daily items that need to be done each evening, for example,
having a timestamp is critical to hide items until "6pm", for example. GTD
uses the concept of "tickler" for this. In Monkey GTD which I used for a
while many years ago, tasks could be converted into "ticklers". But I find
it unnecessary since this, imo, is just a task attribute.
You do have reminders, but this is not quite the same thing. They don't
seem to hide tasks until a certain time.
Another important feature is task recurrence - the ability to regenerate
the task with due dates and threshold dates in the future. The best
implementation of this I found in Emacs Org Mode. They have 3 kinds of
1. Recurring in a certain interval after the previous due date. These
are good for things like paying bills or filing tax returns. Org Mode uses
"+1w" syntax for those.
2. Recurring in a certain interval after the last completion date. These
are good for things like mowing the lawn or having a haircut. Org Mode
uses ".+1w" syntax for those
3. Recurring on a certain date, after "now". This is good for catching
up on delinquent tasks. E.g. if I have to send weekly reports on Fridays
and forgot to mark it "done" for a whole month, I want the task to recur on
the next Friday rather than having to mark the task "Done" 4 times
incrementing the due date by a week. Org Mode uses "++1w" syntax for those.
Do you have any ideas on how to implement these concepts with your plugin?

With enormous gratitude for inspiring users like *Mark S.* and *Josiah*
updated (and still worked in my first test).
*Warning: only tested with TW 5.1.14!*
My helper to get things done got several new features, optimisations and
* reordered icons in ToDo lists
** first deadline (if available by kixam-plugin), then priority
* archive tasks to get them out of the lists
** new button in ToDoDone list
** new tiddler ToDoArchive with keyword and tag search
* deadline handling improved
** new set of icons
** delete deadline (hover over date)
* view template to show ToDo info on all relevant tiddlers (single view)
* tag and priority changes donât affect modified timestamp (TW 5.1.14)
* new empty message for ToDoNow section
* bugs fixed on Work-Report (now part of the plugin)
* better readme documentation and examples (see this link
My tool for listing tiddlers got some updated button macros and CSS â no
*As always: remember to back up your wikis before you try my stuff.*

(There are still some ideas from Josiah and Mark on my consideration
list, but please donât hold your comments back.)
Happy doing and have a nice weekend!
