    I have been using hotkeys on my context tags in my MLO task management software (which I am still using, albeit reluctantly) and it has revolutionized my life!

    If I understand this request correctly, this would be utterly brilliant.

    i.e. While you are adding a task (or editing it) with the GTDNext user interface all the Tags are already displayed. So rather than go to the Tags field and start typing, all you would need to do is a single click on the relevant Tag, and "job done".

    As things stand, when you are working fast Tags are a serious pain to enter, and as a result too often I simply don't bother. This feature would make tags about 10 times faster to add.

    Brilliant suggestion. 3 votes from moi.

    Note: It's not very GTD though to do this!

    In my experience it's one of those things you think you need but when you get it you realise it's a can of worms. This is partly because of shifting absolute priorities and also shifting *relative* priorities (i.e. which tasks are of higher priority compared to each other...)

    In GTD theory we are supposed to worry less about sort orders and priorities as such and just keep our lists short and keep scanning our lists, no?

    That said, I still think filtering (or better sorting) by priority would be v helpful.

    Good idea and probably relatively trivial to code.

    If you add a Tag to a task and then delete it, you will have added a Tag to the master list. This isn't a huge problem as you can always delete it again very easily.

    However if you mean "only show tags that are present in the Area you have selected" that would get my vote as it's probably not too hard to code.

    I totally agree that keyboard shortcuts are crucial. One you remember them they are at least 10+ times faster than working by mouse.

    As my little gift to this community, I have created this page.
    https://www.shortcutworld.com/en/win/GTDNext.com.html

    AFAIK, it contains all current GTDNext shortcuts. If anything is missing feel free to add to or edit the page yourself.

    I agree this would be useful but given limited resources this maybe non-trivial to code...

    Yes, I like this idea about putting Goals into each of your Areas.
    I am also experimenting with add Tags to each of them "#10K" , "#20K. "#30K" (etc) as well in order to encourage me to look at them more often.

    (To explain: starting with # puts them at the start of my list of tags)

    Building a iPhone app will be a huge undertaking. Given limited resources of GTDNext I would firmly vote for a mobile friendly version of the website. Nowadays I have connectivity 95% of the time, in any case...

    September 2018:

    This month we completed a new feature that is key to creating a mobile app.

    The ability to use GTDNext without an internet connection.

    For now we are focusing on making the mobile web experience top notch, but adding offline is a key for eventually doing mobile.

    If you have not seen our mobile web experience it is getting quote good. Check it out here: https://youtu.be/Ew8F6lCrcZs It’s not as good as having a native app. But it’s usable for quickly checking on errands and adding items while on the go.

    When I first arrived at GTDNext 18 months ago not having a mobile app that would work off-line was a total deal-breaker for me.

    However a year of experimentation later (mostly on MLO) I have changed my tune. Yes, a mobile app would be incredibly useful - if only to browse my tasks - however given the limited resources of GTDNext, I would much prefer a really slick web application.

    Fwiw, although MLO is almost insanely configurable and although it seems amazing in many way, and although it has new shiny apps for both Android and Apple, the crunch problem is that it's database structure is profoundly flawed. And when your GTD lists get into the hundreds things become extremely unwieldy no matter how you set things up.

    Personally I feel that there a number of small-ish tweaks to the GTDNext web application that would help dramatically, and so I would now vote for development to focus on the web application.

    Yes this would be a natural and EXTREMELY useful way of working. However I can imagine coding it would be a huge undertaking. Given limited resources I would do several other things first.
