Sort action items like a pro with Things 3
How to order those chaotic to-do lists.
Organize your life
Writing down all of your to-dos is easy, isn’t it? Figuring out the most pressing task to tackle next is the challenge. That’s why the elegant task manager Things 3 boasts so many ways to help you sort and prioritise your action items. Here’s a quick tour.
The Today view (Command-2) automatically pulls together tasks from across all the lists you’ve created, showing just the to-dos you’ve flagged with a start date of Today.
Want to set aside certain items until after the workday is done? Assign those a start date of This Evening; you’ll then find these tasks at the bottom of your Today list.
The Upcoming list (Command-3) syncs with your Apple Calendar for an even broader view. It organises your scheduled to-dos, repeating tasks, deadlines and calendar events into a neat daily agenda. Simply drag and drop tasks to another date to reorder.
Assign tasks that are ongoing and can be done at any time to, you guessed it, Anytime (Command-4).
Someday (Command-5) is the place to park long-term tasks, or those you’ll get around to eventually. They appear with dotted checkboxes, so you’ll remember that they’re not pressing and you can have a little breathing space on them.
