Wow. I was an MGTD 1 and 2 user but drifted away because 2 was a little too slow and unstable for me. But wow. MGTD 3 is about 10000 times better than either 1 or 2. And what makes it so so so much faster ?

One request - it would be nice to have the "Done Actions" list sorted by date. Right now the order of days is random, albeit with tasks sorted alphabetically within each day.

Yeah, I'd like that too. Actually I don't know why it isn't sorting properly but it's on my list to fix

I am new to MGTD, Yet I tried MGTD1 and 2. I have to say, the Ver3 make great strides!!
But I find ver3 have no Calendar on the Sidebar, which make it a little unconvenient. Is it possible to put it back?

Hi Jim here again. Okay I take it the performance improvement came from the use of indexed tags, whatever they are. However it works the speed increase is massive. And MGTD 3 is very polished, very feature-rich. You plainy have not been getting out much lately! I advise take a holiday before you befome a complete Java hermit (it's Java right ?) !

Starting this week my boss wants weekly reports. To any MGTD user this is very easy. If you log your activities in the action tiddlers as I do, with a date time stamp (eg. "{t} - blah blah"), you just harvest the done or modded actions at the end of the week. What the Americans would call a "snap".

When coming back to work some more on an action (actions can get projecty), it is easy to see who you called, what was said etc. MGTD thus allows you to record and persue different threads very easily. I have been looking for a tool that can do that since 1992. MGTD3 is easily the best so far.

I have read the GTD book and implement it with MGTD as far as possible. I haven't used many of MGTD 3's power features yet. It would be interesting to hear how other users use MGTD.

Hi Jim,
Thanks for the great feedback. Glad your enjoying the new version and also glad you figured out how to use the {t} timestamp stuff (aka InstantTimestampPlugin). Btw, you can also use {d} for date only and !t and !d will give you a dated heading. I'm going to post your comments on blog, hope you don't mind. :)
