Your Unprocessed Tasks list shows you all tasks you entered but have not yet processed. When you add new tasks, their status should automatically be “Unprocessed”. This is what indicates unprocessed tasks in ToDoList.

Collecting to your Unprocessed list is easy. Just press Ctrl+N to add a new task. By default ToDoList will give it the “Unprocessed” status.

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.
