There are numerous times when I'm not online and I end up writing actions on bits of paper that I then add later when on-line...well actually I'll be in a meeting and plan to do so, but don't. Or I'll delegate a task and plan to add a "waiting for" action...but I don't get round to it till I speak them later and realise it's still outstanding. So this might be about my flakey, inconsistent approach...but....
How are you adding tasks efficiently when offline?
I appreciate I could write a draft email - but then I need to remember the syntax or I end up with the footer from my mail added all the time
I don't have blackberrys/iphones...I could text...but then theirs the syntax
Does anyone have any good ideas and/or suggestions on how to use the TD syntax to make the most of texting or emailing?
exactly, I think email is the best method.
if remembering the syntax can be aproblem, I suggest :
1- create a contact with your specific toodledo email adress
2- create an inbox folder in toodledo
then the only thing to remember is to write in the subject of the email :
do this task *inbox
and then, you process the inbox folder in toodledo when you get back online
I use auto-text on my blackberry for syntax. I would use a template feature on a regular phone. You could create a cheat sheet and keep it in a wallet or billfold. I taped the shortcuts above the keyboard until as a quick refence. Once you learn the syntax, it comes naturally.
As an alternative you can send tasks to an "inbox" folder or context and process them daily.
