Is anyone using https://imdone.io/ to manage todo items littered throughout their notes. Could you give a view of how it is working for you? Thanks
I think it’s brilliant but didn’t make the purchase. For me the boards are restrictive as I need too many categories for the way I work. I’m continuing to use the Checklist plugin which works well for my needs
That’s how I use it:
I configured it to open the cards from imdone in Obsidian.
When starting a new project in imdone, choose your Obsidian vault as folder.
You should place an
.imdoneignore file in your vault’s root directory with the following contents:
and perhaps also
in case you have an attachments folder. It is also wise to exlude big files to improve performance.
For adding tasks, you can use both of these syntaxes, although I prefer the first one.
#TODO:0 # 9 am - [ ] check emails - [ ] make coffee
[# 10 am](#TODO:1) - [ ] call Bob - [ ] buy theater tickets
If you wish to hide the tasks in your notes so that you see them only in edit mode, you can use Obsidian’s comment feature.
%% #TODO:2 # 11 am - [ ] write the report - [ ] call HR to make an appointment %%
The lower the number after
#TODO:, the higher it will appear in the list. The lowest number is
0 and you can also use numbers like this:
When I move around or edit my cards in imdone, they get automatically updated in Obsidian. When I edit them in Obsidian, the changes are reflected in imdone.
Even if it doesn’t help you specifically, perhaps someone else may find it useful.
Thanks for taking the time to give me this rundown. I really appreciate it
I may give it another try but for now the Checklist community plugin is helping
What I would like to see is something that blends the idea of
- Categorising your to dos. So, for e.g.
- Apply the Eisenhower’s Urgent/Important quadrant in the tool
- Being able to move within these categories in a kanban fashion (new, started, on-going, done, cancelled, parked etc)
- The kanban view would then show the quadrant and even suggest what to “park” or “cancel”
A tool that could blend these 3, intuitively, would be brilliant
There hasn’t been any activity for 5 days, could you please see if you’d like to pick any of the existing answers as the solution, or do you still need help with something?
Would appreciate it if you could clarify on that, thanks!
Loving it. Thanks so much for explaining! ImDone and Obsidian are a dream team!
