In Astrid, TRO features are handled as follows:

  • When is the hard date.
  • A “When” of today means Do This Today.
  • Priority is the soft date (=this week, =next week, =this month, = later).
  • The S/M List means Someday/Maybe.
  • Deadline dates are entered in the subject line (in parentheses) after the project name or next step.
  • Lists are used for all types of contexts.
  • Projects and next steps are entered in the task Subject:

Project Name / Next Step

  • Future next steps are entered in the Description field, one per line, roughly in order.
  • Email notifications are optional.
