Love 2Do as it taught me what a proper task manager should look like.
I now use KusKus as my main task manager.
When I did use 2Do, I did it like so:
Here is how my sidebar looked like:
It also has global quick add with a hotkey. Together with lists, priorities, powerful search and a lot more.
I used 2Do only for personal tasks. Team & project tasks are done on GitHub.
Managing tasks with tags
My main way of managing tasks is with tags. This lets me give scope to the task I want to complete and lets me filter through the many thousands of tasks I have in my Inbox.
I create many smart lists of most common tags I want to jump to. I use
j key and macros that activate the URL scheme to jump between the lists.
I made my
All list sorted by
Modified date. This lets me cleanly delete or act on all tasks that have been sitting in my 2Do for too long with no activity.
I have 2Do setup to schedule a weekly Sunday review & plan task.
2Do URL schemes documentation has everything. I use these URL schemes currently:
- Go to 2Do list from URL scheme:
twodo://x-callback-url/showList?name=PR(would go to to PR list).
2Do tasks shared
I once used 2Do as replacement for Pocket for links to read/watch/check later.
I share a snapshot of these tasks.
