MY USE OF GTASKS
IN COORDINATION WITH THE OTHER PIECES OF MY TIME SYSTEM
REPLACED: GO TO
These are notes for myself that I am putting in here for my easy reference. (GTD is the symbol for David Allen's Getting Things Done book's system that is massively used. Also read his other book(!): Making It All Work.)
All the GTasks (iPad or PC) post to the tasks on the side of the google calender, also, but I view them in GTasks whenever I can.
All GTasks in one task list (see below) that are scheduled for a day appear in the calendar at the top of the day and can be dragged and dropped into other days.
They all indent for subtasks, though there are different ways to get there (arrows or "actions" or tabbing)
Task list size seems to be infinite so far, and lists are "collapsible" for easier viewing.
Tasks for a specified day - all appear at the top of the day in the calendar (up to 10, then just look at the task secion), but only for a particular list that is up at the time.
I put all to do items in My Tasks task list (using projects, subtasks) and keep that up so that I can see what is assigned to the day, including next actions (GTD). I will, however, just have a pad of paper to write next actions in for the day also, for convenience, ease, and to not have to rewrite it or enter it needlessly.
