Building notes, projects, and occasional rants

iGTD stuff

I'm enjoying my iGTD experience. I think there is a lot of good stuff in there, and with some MailActOn stuff and some mail rules, I've been able to use very effectively as a Inbox for everything.

I still miss a easy way to track external tickets, but maybe we can work around that with the Pro version and some plugins.

Update: Ok, found it! Just select all the projects... Stupid me. Now on to step 3 of my list: I have this list of tasks for a set of projects, I want to filter per context.

One thing that I don't like at all is the query capabilities. I miss a view that combines Project and Contexts.

I would like to see something like this:

  1. select one or more projects to focus on (usually one);
  2. check some box to include sub-projects also;
  3. select one context;
  4. apply.

This would give me all the actionable tasks that I have in those projects in that context. So far, I haven't found a way to do it with iGTD.

See this screenshot: if I have 12 tasks in that project, including sub-projects, I would expect that, if I select that project, I would see the 12 tasks. But no, I only get to see the ones in that project exactly, not a single one from the kids. That is the correct behavior if I expand the project to show sub-projects (iGTD even updates the count to 2 in that situation, correctly). Only the task list does not adjust properly for collapsed projects.

Fortunately.... The data is inside a SQLite database... hmmms... :)
