Todoist Office Hours: Timeblocking & day theming
I am still relatively new to Todoist but I have quickly adopted it into my daily workflow. As with all tools I use often, I believe it is important to become as proficient as possible in them. As such, I watched the following video with Gabriela Brasil and Chase Warrington.
There are 2 little tips that I learned. The first which I adopted immediately is the difference between “every” and “every!”. If I say:
every week starting wednesday
This task will be due on Wednesday and when I mark it as complete, a new occurrence will be scheduled with a due date of the following Wednesday. If I say:
every! week starting wednesday
This task will be on Wednesday. When I mark it as complete, a new occurrence will be scheduled one week from when I completed it. So, if I mark is as complete on Monday, the next instance will be due 1 week from Monday.
The second tip I have not used yet is this concept of an “uncompletable” task. This is a task that appears but without the circle control to mark it as complete. These tasks are created by starting the task text with an asterisk and a space. For example:
* This task cannot be marked as completed.
