I was using daily notes like other notes, but in one of my project related vaults, I have recently started experimenting with each day moving the entire previous day’s daily note content into the current daily note.
Also, I have been copying the current daily note’s title and pasting it at the top of the daily note. I have these set as checkbox lists and indent the actual tasks, making the whole day foldable. Directly below the checkboxed date, I have an indented checkbox called done. And after “done”, at the same indented level, I have one called “do”.
Within “do” I have an indented listed of task checkboxes. Some tasks which have sub steps require further nesting of checkbox items.
As I finish the top items in “do” I move them up into done, of course after the joy of checking the box. Using swap line up hotkey is nice. I find that it feels good to see all the finished tasks in sequence under done. This also makes moving the whole “do” section on the following day easy. It’s good to know that you can use shift down to select the lines one by one, then use swap line up hotkey to move selection as a whole.
I used to do a lot of linking and record keeping for this particular project, within the daily notes, but got tired of digging up previous days.
Having the entire record accessible by pressing daily note hotkey then unfolding as needed has been working for me lately.
Good idea for a topic. Thanks.
