Hi there !
I propose to open a thread to try to gather discussions about task management in Joplin (todo, GTD, etc).
Personally, I am currently working in a GTD logic with a "task" notebook that contains four notes:
- Open : Open tasks are the stock of tasks taken on the fly that do not yet have an assigned due date.
- Actionable : Actionable tasks are those that have an assigned due date in less than 7 days or late.
- Closed : Closed tasks are finished.
- Waiting : Waiting tasks are tasks, with or without a due date, that contain the "wait" tag.
Inside these notes, I use the wonderful joplin-plugin-note-overview plugin (thanks to @JackGruber). The idea is to get the tasks in all the notebooks and to order them in a table to keep track of them.
Here is what it looks like in code and in pictures...
Here we try to filter the tasks that do not have assigned dates and are in the "stock". In Joplin, a task without an assigned date has one corresponding to 1970-01-01. So we filter by date.
<!-- note-overview-plugin search: -due:19700201 iscompleted:0 fields: title, notebook alias: title AS TITLE, notebook AS CONTEXT sort: todo_due ASC -->
When you run the command "create note overview"... tada !
If you want more context (for example for closed tasks), you can do like this...
<!-- note-overview-plugin search: type:todo iscompleted:1 fields: todo_due, title, tags, body, notebook, created_time alias: todo_due AS échéance, title AS titre, tags AS tags, body AS contenu, notebook AS carnet, created_time AS création sort: todo_due ASC -->
And you, how do you proceed ?
