Support for GTD next action


Is there a way to specify that tasks should be of a sequential nature. For eg. I would want that if I mark a project as 'sequential' then when I mark the first task as done the next task would automatically take on the label of the first one? Also can the priorities of the project flow down to the sub tasks? Are keyboard shortcuts to easily add a project just like the way there is to create tasks.

Hi Salil,

Unfortunately, none of those features are available yet. We'll look into adding them as future improvements.

This YouTube clip introduces a Next Action hack that a guy made for Todoist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFfd2_tCbI4

It would be great if Todoist could build in something like this.

This would be hugely important for me. I was considering moving over from MLO, but I can't really figure out equivalent functionality for getting a list of only the next actions I need to complete. That's pretty much a blocker from being able to use my preferred streamlined workflow of being able to choose what to do next.
