I'm trying to implement labels and locations, like @nextaction and @office like suggested in the gtd workflow.
How would I list for instance all the nextaction in the office?
If you'd like to query for tasks that meet both criteria:
- Have a @nextaction label
- Have a @office label
you can simply type @nextaction, @office within the search box in the top-left corner and Todoist will display all tasks that have both these labels.
Thank you, that works.
However, what I really wanted was to enter some query in the search box and to have listed all the tasks that have either @nextaction or @office.
Unfortunately, that's not possible right now, but we will certainly consider adding such option in the future. You're welcome to vote for this request in our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/15/
What do you suggest as far as tracking estimates for required energy and time as mentioned in Getting Things Done?
We recommend using labels. You can add a label such as @1h or @3h within a task if you think the task will take 1 or 3 hours to complete and this way, you'll be able to quickly find tasks that you can complete within a certain timeframe.
For example, you have 2 hours left at work and you want to see which tasks you could complete within this time. Simply type @2h within the search box or just @ to see all your labels - clicking on the @2h label will show all tasks that have this label attached to them.
