I’ve been experimenting with task management and note applications for a while now. I wouldn’t say I like organizing into folders or even using tags. I’ve gone down that road and spent too much time trying to stay organized.
I want to capture notes from an idea or meeting and keep them front and center until anything actionable from that note is complete. This gives me all the context I need for that task or project. For example, if I’m working on a development issue, I create a note where I write down anything I need during the troubleshooting process and, in the end, what solved the problem. The note for that issue will stay on my list of active notes until it is complete.
I also want to create the occasional reminder or block-off time on my calendar. Also, associating meeting notes with calendar events is a bonus.
After experimenting with dozens, if not hundreds, of apps, I came across Agenda. I’ve only been using it for a couple of days. So far, it fits my workflow.
I will use Agenda this week for all my notes and tasks and see if I have any problems.
