  1. Hello All, For those of us that follow all or some of the GTD principles, or are just working to always capture ideas and get them out of our heads ASAP, I've come across a tool that has become my one and only digital capture tool at this point. Its an app called Braintoss. Right now its only available for iOS, but an Android one is coming soon. The premise is pretty simple. Launch the app and choose to capture as either voice, text, or image. Whatever you captured then gets sent off to the email address of your choice. You set one email address as your default, but can add more and select them with a long press when its time to send off what you've captured. If you capture with voice, you get transcribed text as well as an audio attachment of what you said. It works marvelously with Evernote. Just use the Evernote email address for your account, and your captured item shows up in your default notebook. Also works with Ominfocus if you are an Omnifocus person. You can find them on twitter here: @braintoss Check it out if you are in to this kind of thing. Just FYI, while I have had the opportunity to speak with the creator of the app, I'm not an employee or anything. I'm not getting paid anything to talk about it. I just really like the app. Thanks All, Jason
  2. Hello All, I am juggling somewhere around 40 projects and sub-projects right now and am managing somewhere around 55 individuals to get everything done. I'm looking for something that will allow me to view the status of the projects as well as what the people are doing. I'd like to be able to look at a project and see the history of what I've documented (kick-off meeting with John, assigned Sally to investigate alignment, etc). Then I would like to be able to click over to a different view and see my people and what they are doing. So for example I can pull of John's history and see that we had a kickoff meeting, or I can pull up Sally and see that I assigned her to investigate alignment. Something to track history of projects but allow me to look at it from the perspective of projects OR people. Any thoughts?
  3. Hello, I have stumbled across a note taking application for ipad called AudioNote and I love it. While taking notes via handwriting or text, the user can also record audio. The audio is then synced with the text on the page. After the meeting/class/whatever is over, touching a pice of text automatically plays back the audio recorded at the time the text was written. We already have the ability to record audio notes. Is there any way we can connect the audio to the text? Would be amazing for meeting notes and class lectures. Jason
  4. Hello, I use Evernote as my reference storage and OmniFocus for my projects and tasks. I love that I can copy the note links from Evernote and put them in my OmniFocus projects. If I have multiple notes for a single project, I tag them with the project name. It would be nice to be able to have "tag links" so that, when I click on it, it brings up all notes with that tag. Thank you.
  5. Hello, I have adopted the practice of including the yymmdd date at the beginning of each one of my note titles. On the mac desktop version I can sort my notes by "reverse alphabetical order" keeping the most recent at the top. Am I able to do this on my iPad?
  6. I am still figuring out how to integrate GTD and EN myself, but my initial impression is that the OP may not be truly following the GTD process. One of the cornerstones of GTD is separating the capturing process and the processing process. By saying he wants to edit notes on the go and add things to his various lists when he has an idea, I think he is combining the two. When walking down the street or driving in a car and we have an idea, this is not the time to add it to a list or work it into an existing project. The only concern is capturing it to process later. I will share my current evolution of the GTD in EN as a way to illustrate. -I only have two notebooks, one called "Inbox" and one called "Everything" -"Inbox" is exactly what it sounds like. It is my dumping place for everything. It is my default notebook, so any new notes automatically go into it. If I forward an email to EN, it ends up in my inbox. If I am walking down the street and have an idea, I just tap the "audio note" button on my EN widget (Android) and record my thoughts. The voice note automatically goes to "inbox." If I clip something from the web, it ends up in "inbox." -Then, when I sit down to do my processing, I look at everything in my inbox and decide where it goes. It is at this time that I decide if I need to add it to some existing note, put it on a list somewhere, make it reference material, etc. My main point here is that "editing" a note or adding something to an existing note should be done when you have the time to sit down and think about it. Not on the go. Just my thoughts and if you ask me again in a week they may change, but this is where I'm at right now. Jason
