Bug fixes

Replies to emails are now working again (they stopped working for 9 days).

Here are a few hidden gems you might find useful when using WEEK PLAN:

1. To set the priority of a task. when writing the task, type ! and you will be suggested “quadrants” (Quadrant I and III will show the task in red).

2. To associate a task to a role, when writing the task, type @ and you will be suggested the list of roles.

3. If you put a url in a task, it will be converted to a clickable [link] for you

4. Using the “: ” notation, you can create some kind of tag. I personally use it to specify what time a task should be done. (ex: 14pm: Do something) or to categorize my tasks (ex: FIX: This is a bug 3!).

5. End a task with “…” to show the Edit dialog straight away to enter more details about the task.

My goal with weekplan and the mobile world is to make it very fast to add a new task. I want it to be possible to be in the middle of a discussion and to quickly jot down a task without having to wait ages for the app to start. At the moment, the mobile app/view is not a reflection of that vision. It still takes too long to load (which I am hoping to improve once I introduce the offline mode). But I have found a great alternative, which speed is hard to beat: adding a task via SMS is almost as fast as writing it on a paper notebook. Read more »

This great animated video from Epipheo explains how habits work and how you can acquire new habits.
