Append Editor Workflow: To-do lists

How to use the Append Editor for To-do lists#

We can use the Append Editor for general, simple, and private to-do lists with the Dynamic editing mode.

Indent by pressing tab to add notes or sub-tasks.

To reorder main tasks, triple-click a task and drag it.

The checklists are clickable in view/read-only mode.

If you get a new idea for a task, add it directly to the note with Edit mode or append it to the bottom of your note in Append mode.

Example#

For an example template, copy this into your note using the Plain Textarea editing mode then switch to the Dynamic editing mode.

# Things to do
## Today
- [ ] Task  - [ ] Sub-task    - [ ] Sub-task- [ ] Task  - [ ] Sub-task    - [ ] Sub-task- [ ] Task
## Upcoming
- [ ] Task  - [ ] Sub-task    - [ ] Sub-task- [ ] Task- [ ] Task
## Anytime
- [ ] Task  - [ ] Sub-task    - [ ] Sub-task- [ ] Task- [ ] Task
## Someday
- [ ] Task  - [ ] Sub-task    - [ ] Sub-task- [ ] Task- [ ] Task
\

The result will yield something like this without the bullets:

Today#

  • Task
    • Sub-task
      • Sub-task
  • Task
    • Sub-task
      • Sub-task
  • Task

Tips#

Some ways to make these to-do lists more organized and productive:

  • Add flags to the beginning of the to-dos
  • Give bold and italics special meanings (such as to refer to people and dates)

For example:

  • chore: buy more bread
  • chore: vacuum the house
  • dev: open pull request to the React Native website to update the broken link on...
  • family: buy brother's birthday present by Tuesday
  • friends: check-in with Holly
  • school: do math homework due next Friday
  • work: follow up with Boss about the details of project X
