GTDInbox

Hi guys,

GTDInbox used to be a proud member of this list, but I guess slipped off when Gmail upgraded (and broke GTDInbox). It's now been completely rewritten, and transforms Gmail into a fully functional GTD client (tasks - actions, next actions, someday, waiting on; projects; contexts; references). It's free (donationware) and well loved by its community. Let me know if you need any other information.

  • Can GTDInbox Work With Total, Relaxed Organization (TM)?

    GTDInbox is a Gmail add-on that allows you to sort your email with quick GTD views, reviews, etc. It makes use of Gmail's many labels to allow for some pretty exciting sorting.

    The bad news is that GTDInbox doesn't work with TRO for the following reasons:
    -No dates. You can't set even one
    -No reminders
    -No priorities
    -No sort options
    -Tasks are still mingled with email
    -Every time you modify a "task" it adds another layer to the task, making it difficult to view old notes. While this isn't a huge deal, it's inconvenient.

    The killer is the lack of dates, reminders, priorities and list-sorting options. Without any of those, it is impossible to construct a task list that auto-prioritizes.

    Summary:
    GTD Compliant: YES!
    TRO Compliant: No  :-[
