(GTG) is a personal tasks and TODO-list items organizer for the GNOME desktop environment and inspired by the ”Getting Things Done” (GTD) methodology.
GTG is designed with flexibility, adaptability, and ease of use in mind, so its user interface and workflow can be used as more than just “GTD” software. GTG is intended to help you track everything you need to do and need to know, from small tasks to large projects.
Whether you’re a chaos warrior or a goldsmith, you will appreciate:
A graphical user interface that accommodates many workflows
The user interface can be as minimalistic or as evolved as you like, and can be used whether you are a GTD practicioner or not.
Flexible tagging system: tags can be batch-tagged/untagged, can be hierarchical or not, can have an assigned color and/or emblem icon, and can be configured to show/hide the affected tasks in the workview.
Searches and saved searches (with similar customizeability to tags)
Natural language parsing and free-form task text editor
Supports dates like “today”, “tomorrow”, “thursday”, “14”, “jeudi”, “now”, and the ISO 8601 (“YYYY-MM-DD”) standard, anywhere in the UI.
Supports keywords like “due:” and detects @tags anywhere in the title or description or as you quick-create tasks (for example “@phone Rob to buy a yacht in Istanbul due:Thursday @lifestyle @GUADEC_2008”)
- Quickly create multiple sub-tasks by using * or – as if they were bulleted lists.
Projects/task dependencies (infinite sub-tasks)
- Lets you enter detailed notes and descriptions inside a task, if you need to.
An “actionable” tasks view mode
Previously called the “Workview”, this only shows tasks that are actionable (tasks that do not have a start date set into the future, do not have dependencies/sub-tasks blocking them, and that are not tagged with a tag set to be excluded from the workview), so that you can focus on what you can act on “right now”.
Quick-defer tasks to common upcoming days, or to a custom date.
- Translated and localized in most languages of Earth (not Klingon).
