Clarification of Inbox use
Now that the Inbox is an unmovable fixture in the Todoist world, is there somewhere that explains how it is intended to be used? Every time I try to think of how to maximize the benefits of the Inbox, I still come out with more time and more clicks needed to accomplish the same thing.
Example (my own situation, in fact):
I had a 'Misc Stuff' project and a 'Misc Thoughts' project. 'Misc Thoughts' was for loose, yet-to-be-figured-out stuff, e.g. "Bob likes Mesa Grill". 'Misc Stuff' was for concrete, dated/timed tasks that were simply not part of any larger project, e.g. "Look up Mesa Grill info", "Make Mesa Grill reservation for Bob's birthday", etc.
The vast majority of the tasks I created were loose but immediately-scheduleable tasks. 'Misc Stuff' (the place for such tasks) was my default project. Ergo, the vast majority of the tasks I created were already going to the correct place WITHOUT CLICKING TO CHANGE THE PROJECT.
My impression is that the Inbox is intended to be similar to what my 'Misc Thoughts' project had been: a place for loose bits of information and intentions that need to be quickly jotted down, then later organized into more concrete plans. However, I do that way less often than I add a task and immediately assign it to a day and time. So am I just supposed to accept that I now have to click to change projects EVERY DAMN TIME I add an everyday "loose" task? Or am I supposed to put everything in the Inbox, delay assigning it, and handle it a second time to sort it? Those both sound stupid to me, when my previous system was: click "+", type task, <TAB>, type date, press enter. It was so fast. Why did this have to get bungled up? Please explain how the new system is supposed to work, because either it makes life harder, or I'm simply not understanding it.
