The day I gave up putting due dates in the future on my tasks, my life with Zim became less date maintenance and more productive work.
My use-case is to set the due date to the day I create the task and never move it. The task list plugin becomes a list of age. The older a task is, the less important was it in the first place. In the task list field 'Labels marking tasks' I usually add 'MAYBE' as a task tag (not using @maybe as that pollutes my tag space) When the Journal plugin is enabled, I just hit alt-d and write on that page: * MAYBE Look into that web page describing how to turn a foo into a bar. This will show up in the task list under MAYBE and the page name will be the date when I put it in. If I happen to want that maybe to go away from the task list either because I have done it or I don't want to be bothered, I go to the page and apply strike format to MAYBE. It goes away from the task list, but stays in my notebook in case I ever do a search for foo or bar. I like to think that things that once were important, will be important again, so I never delete anything if I can help it. Just hide it a bit by striking it out. On topic pages, I sometimes put in FIXMEs (must happen soon), TODOs (should be done) and MAYBEs (done at my own discretion) in nested list. * TODO [d:2015-06-23] Write a serious document about my revolutionary zim use-case * TODO [d:2015-06-24] Try out some of Murat's plug-ins Show up as nested todos in the task list. I keep separate topic pages for each project I work on. If I do something notable on a task, I hit alt-d to bring up a journal page of today, and pull in a back-link from the project topic page and start typing my findings. If I happen to do something revolutionary on another task, I pull a link from that page also, separating tasks with a few newlines. Now the project topic page will have backlinks to each day with notable findings. By opening the backlinks in tear-off mode, I can walk through my jottings on the project in a comfortable manner. This work habit has lead to opening a journal page for each day just to document which project I am working on, even if I don't have so much to write. There is always something to note down. -- Svenn
