new new buttons and quick add

  • There's new buttons sprinkled everywhere now. Anywhere you see a + click it a create a new thing.
  • Check out the handly "quick add" slider in the top menu. (It's just slapped straight in from 2.1 code, so might be a little clunky).
  • Do Work, Process Inbox and Review are basically done.
  • The idea now with the options under "Do Work" is you use the view that works best for you. You're not supposed to use them all at once.
  • New preview urls:
  • I'm going to call it pre-pre alpha. Unless you're comfortable on the edge (eg, schilke) you should probably shouldn't trust your real system to it yet.

If we were to use this pre-pre-alpha, what is the best way to upgrade to the next version? The import/export plugin? Something else?

Thanks, love the software.

I had been playing with this beta for the last week or so. Glad to see some progress! If you are calling this PRE2 Aplha, my curiosity is rimmed with what you are going to do next!

Thanks for all the work and the new look.

Wow, this is really getting somewhere! I used to use MonkeyGTD, but abandonded it for a few reasons:
* difficulties using it on multiple computers (if I'm not saving it on a USB stick)
* no keyboard shortcuts for adding actions and projects (which made Remember the milk quicker).

I'm still using Remember the milk and love the quick and easy interface. But as it's not made for GTD it is not that easy to use with projects etc.

So a few questions about mGTD 3.0:
* Will there be any keyboard shortcuts for adding actions and projects?
* Is there an wasy way to view all starred actions? I guess that's what I'd use for a temporary "daily task list".
* Will there be a possibility to set a due date for an action or a project? I know ticklers can be used as reminders, but I'd like to have close-at-hand the date when an action/project must be finished by.
* And lastly, what's t he best way to use mGTD on multiple computers? I easily forget to save, so I guess I need auto-save on. But that makes it pretty slow, doesn't it? Especially if saving to a remote server. And if I keep the file on a remote server, how can I password-protect it? And how can I easily make a local copy to work with if I happen to be offline, that automatically is later synced with the remote server?

Thanks for some excellent progress!

Keyboard shortcuts: TiddlyWiki supports keyboard shortcuts. So possibly.

Starred actions: Coming soon.

Due dates: Maybe.

Multiple computers: Have you tried Tiddlyspot? Work locally but use Tiddlyspot to "sync".

Thanks for a quick reply, Simon!

Sounds great about keyboard shortcuts, viewing starred actions and due dates.

And indeed TiddlySpot seems to be a good solution for using it on multiple computers. There is no feature that auto-saves to the server with a set time interval? That is, savinf every 15 minutes or so if one forgets to save.

Simon will you also include sub-projects in this version?

Fantastic implementation of TiddlyWiki btw and so true to GTD.

Great job! Is it possible to upgrade from version 2.1 alpha using the upgrade URL? How would I do it?

Can I just put in another vote for keyboard shortcuts.
All I really want right now is something like Ctrl-N for add a new action.
