Hi, Taskpaper geniuses!
I have tried time and again to find a task manager that fit my habits, and all of them were too feature-rich…but Taskpaper is just about perfect. I use it as a daily activity tracker at work—the scopes of the projects I work on (as a copywriter) aren’t clearly defined, so it’s difficult to track my responsibilities on a per-project basis, and I’ve found that the best way for me to get everything done is to have a list that follows me day-by-day, growing as new things are assigned and shrinking as I complete tasks from the list. I like to move the list as a whole to a new header every day, then leave behind the items I’ve finished so that I generate a work history list as I go forward.
I’d like to write a script that I can trigger with Alfred that creates a new header for the day and moves all open tasks into it, maintaining the tree structure that exists in it. Can anyone help me work this out? Alternatively, if you have a GTD system in place with TP that works kind of like a daily calendar, I’m all ears!
Thanks! (Also, Jesse, I’ve been a fan of WriteRoom for many years…thanks for your awesome apps!)
