Your Unprocessed Tasks list contains all the unprocessed tasks you have entered into or forwarded to your Trello account. This includes tasks you triaged into Trello.

Looking at the Unprocessed column (5th from the left) shows you every task that does not yet have at least 1) a priority and 2) a tag (Someday/Maybe tasks are the exception and only need to be placed in the Someday column (10th from the left)).

Collecting to the Unprocessed Tasks list happens several ways. You can add a new task without processing it. You can send an email to your Trello inbox address.

Processing the list is exactly as taught in the Processing lessons, except the tasks are already in the Unprocessed Tasks list. No need to triage. Follow the Processing Flow Chart to move these tasks from your Unprocessed Tasks (a collection point) into your task list (not a collection point). You are really only doing three things:

  • Deciding what the project and next steps are (if you haven’t already done so).
  • Scheduling the task for later.
  • Assigning contexts for this particular step.
