NOT the Task Tree

In ToDoList, never use the Task Tree or hierachical tasks. It ruins auto prioritization of your lists and hides some of your tasks. Always use the List View to organize your tasks. Record potential next steps in the Comments box to the right.

To manage very large projects create special categories to track which project a task belongs to. The category is the project name, starting with “#”, like this: #Remodel, #Pilots License, #Pick a Grad School.

  • Unlimited tasks per project. Use Someday/Maybe to “pause” future next steps.
  • Orphan protection is not provided with this method. You will need to adjust your weekly reviews.
  • Projects list is the list of all Categories.
