Why 43 folders?

A tickler file system aka 43 folders system, is an easy-to-use system. It provides a way to send a reminder to oneself in the future. Thus, “tickling” one’s memory.

The system consists of a maximum of 31 folders for each day in the running month and 12 folders for the year. This adds up to a total of 43 and gives the system its name. All short-term items which are scheduled for the current month can be placed within the appropriate daily folder. Items which need attention in a future month will be put in the corresponding monthly folder.

Every day you can focus on those items that you have committed yourself to for that specific day. At the end of the day, you can enjoy the feeling of achievement when everything is done. Open tasks will be moved to the next day.

Monthly folders give you a starting point for your monthly reviews where you check the monthly folder and move the items to the right days.

The system allows you to file time-sensitive documents, ideas, tasks or other items in an easy on-the-fly fashion, making sure that you won’t miss out on them later.

You can read more about the system and how to improve your productivity in our blog on www.fortythree.me.

How a tickler file helps you:

- Avoids missing deadlines again

Great, but potentially experiencing issues with iOS 16

The app after the iOS 16 update is seemingly unable to load upon startup, I can’t access anything within the app.

Handy but keen for more features

It’d be handy if reoccurring tasks could be set ie certain plants at home need watering every 4 days, etc

Developer Response ,

Great idea Nick, we will bake that into our development plans. Watch this space!
