I like Obsidian very much but I underuse it heavily. My current uses are predominantly focused on:
- daily notes
- with content that serves as a kind of scratchboard (short notes, will probably not be reused)
- or with links that I tag (with the idea of hopefully coming back to them someday)
- a few general pages where I gather information about a specific topic
- a few general pages that serve as a reference
When starting Obsidian I land on the current daily note.
What I am missing is a robust TODO system. I would like to ask you whether the following scenario is doable, or about some alternatives if not.
I would like to start a templated daily note with three sections labeled “work”, “home”, “other”, each of which gathers all the TODOS tagged (or something like that) with
#otherwould be everything that is neither
If it was possible to gather the day the TODO was created (or its context such as the name of the page) that would be ideal.
This is of course a fantasy best-case scenario - anything you could suggest would be great.
I can code stuff if needed, this is not a problem. Also raw pointers are perfect - I will learn on the way. This is really a question about how to bootstrap such workflow. Thanks!
