Re: Making sure a certain tag is applied to every task
Both the p and np tags have gray color?
Actually, I'd like to use a light gray color for periodic tasks and a
dark gray color for non-periodic tasks, but I can't choose correctly a
pair of gray colors that result in the same background color. That is, I
can't understand how background colors are generated.
I am not sure if I understand it clearly, from my interpretation:
You want to add p and np tags to the tasks as and when they are created
and you do not want to give them task colors, right?
I can add @p and @np tags manually when I create a task, no need for GTG
to add them automatically. But I'd like a way to easily check if I
forgot to add either @p or @np to some tasks.
I do not want to give @p/@np a color because that interferes with @1
(red) / @2 (yellow) / @3 (green) priority tags.
Well just a random hack here.
You can create 2 parent tasks: Periodic ('A') with tag p and non
periodic ('B') with tag np, both without any start or due dates
Now add all your periodic tasks as sub-tasks of A and non-periodic tasks
as sub-tasks of 'B' and use workview
I don't really like to add fake periodic/non-periodic meta-tasks to the
task list, because they are tasks that are meant to remain forever, and
should never be dismissed/removed. I'd like instead to dismiss every
task in my GTG one day :).
Once the recurring tasks feature is added. Your problem will be solved.
It seems the best option to me.
