WorkView: Start of the day
I am experimenting with my personal GTG workflow. I would like to really
leverage WorkView feature: I choose under 20 tasks I can work on then
work on one of them. Tasks are often hidden because of the start date,
e.g. "Go to a party" is shown in WorkView only on that given date.
The current implementation assumes the fact that a new day starts at
6am. If you work late during midnight, you would get many new tasks in
the middle of your "work day". We should have an option for changing that.
I think that the day could begin even a day earlier for my use case:
I work from early morning and rest in the evening. Before I go to bed, I
would like to do planning for the next day. After 9pm, GTG would show in
WorkView also tasks which start tomorrow.
I would like to have an option to edit when the day starts. How big the
interval could be?
1) 00:00 day before - 23:00 today
2) 12:00 day before - 23:00 today
3) 12:00 day before - 12:00 today
I would go with options 1 or 2.
I am not sure which widget to use for setting this option. From top of
my head, we can have a text field with the format XX:XX and if the user
wants to start day before, put a minus before, e.g. 12:00 (today),
-21:00 (day before) It sounds like a big hack to me.
Another option is to use a scale with a label like it is in Hamster's
dialog for activity reminder. http://i.imgur.com/6pjuO.png
How should be the start of the day setup? Which widget to use?
