Some more updates

  • improved tooltip and prompt when clicking [+] new buttons in lists (contributed by Danner Stodolsky)
  • you can add tiddler content (aka 'notes') using quick add by putting it on the end of the line after two pipe chars, ie .action|tag|tag||content
  • handy delete buttons for actions and ticklers in lists (borrowed from tracks)
  • date picker now shows S M T W T F S at top of calendar
  • little dropdown next to project name in a project lets you open all items in a project (click it and choose 'open all')

Thanks everyone contributing to the discussion on the mailing list.

I'm watching and following the development of thmonkey GTD for a while now and think it turns out to be quite useful ... but I have one question: wouldn't it be a nice addition to merge the twab-plugin from Vincent DiBartolo (see here: http://www.tiddly-twab.com/) with the MonkeyGTD to provide a full contact database in the GTD-file? I am sure this would be a unseful addition ...

Thanks, Jay

first not so positive feedback on my behalf: the addition of "x" to delete items next the the star is scary for me. Even though I know that if I hit the "x" I'll get a warning message asking me if I really want to delete the item, visually it bothers me because my mind is programmed to react to the stars...

I'd rather open an item and then delete it...

on the same topic, I'd love some system for colored stars... or multiple stars... three levels of priorities? I don't know if that makes sense in the GTD philosophy, but sometimes everything needs to be done now/today, but on different levels of priority...

any feedback on that?

Re TWAB, I will investigate. Re delete buttons, do you think you'll get used to them after a little while? I could make a configuration option to hide them.

re priorities I don't think I would ad them in the default distribution. but I would like to use them in a tutorial showing how to add custom elements.

re: delete buttons

could you put them at the end of the line? I think that would actually be a great place for them. The practicality is there while not being a distraction in the way my eyes scan the line left to right. I'd definitely get used to that.

so I vote on move, not remove.
thanks!

nice solution in the end - although I visually liked the delete buttons where they were initially but I had the same usability concerns...
Re. Twab: I had this idea, too, when I stumbled over twab the first time. I'm not sure if it might become too much load for one file sometimes.

I would still vote for an external solution (e.g. in combination with the IncludePlugin) - but in that case some 'contact format standard' would be really useful...
