As a user, I want to be able to create ToDo’s or Follow-Up items in different notes and then be able to view all ToDo’s referenced in notes in a dynamically generated view (or Note).
I’ve started to create notes as singletons, e.g. one note per subject and only one subject per note. So my daily note has turned into a list of things I want to do, a summary of my day, and then links to the notes I’ve take that day. One of my challenges is carrying over and tracking ToDos.
When I start my day, I generate a new Daily Note from Template then copy over my ToDo’s that are still open from the previous day. This gets further complicated as I add ToDo’s outside of this Daily Note. In a perfect world, I would be able to do the following:
Start my day by creating a Daily Note. I hit the (insert key here) and get a list of ToDo’s that are listed in all my notes (a la Internal Links). I can then add those ToDo’s that I’m going to be working on by referencing them. Later that day I create a new Note for a Meeting. In that Meeting I add a ToDo on that note. I then jump back to my Daily Note and add that ToDo as something I’m working on. A few weeks later I want to see open ToDo’s, so I go to the ToDo plugin and see all my ToDo. I click on a specific ToDo item and see that I’ve included this in several Daily notes.
