I have in the past used the time estimates to identify if I am able to finish all the work I have decided to complete in the current day. (I subtract meeting time from available time to perform the work, then confirm the estimated time for the tasks is within the time I have available out of meetings to perform the work.)

This has worked well, but I am looking to be able to quickly determine the amount of work I am estimating for the rest of the week (or even for the next few days.)

Does anyone have a way to do this (using folders, categories, due date, etc.) Just checking to see if anyone has done this in the past before creating a new approach.

My goal is to be able to avoid overcommitting in a week.


Yes you can with
a) estimated time for a task in length column
b) with timer in next column
c) with advanced search criteria

eg.
Below you can find my filter for task in pipeline for to day (not check as done and due date is not tomorrow)

check of - no (not done
and
due date /is before/ tomorrow
and (different stages of processing)
{
status is / next action
or
status is / active
or
status is / planning
}

On top of it you can go to

Hi
as part of GTD laziness habit I been playing a bit with macro like plugin for ff.
http://www.iopus.com/imacros/firefox/?ref=fxhome
(very use full in web games :P)
It allow you to record (as in excel) your mouse click pattern in order to automatize your web navigation( open, seachr, filter etc. )

For now i have tasted it to:
export backup file
set filters on custom searches

Downside of this solution is that it runs in native

I don't know whether it is useful for you but I share it in spirit of contribution to the community ;)
