I’m a seasoned Todoist user, an online to do list application that works across all devices and browsers. I’d hesitate to call myself a power user, but I do use it extensively both in my professional and personal life.
One of the reasons I love working in the IT sphere, is how applications you’ve used for awhile occasionally surprise you with what they can do. Todoist did that to me today when I watched one of Carl Pullein’s excellent productively YouTube videos. I’ve embedded it below for completeness.
In it Carl formats tasks so that they:
- Don’t need a date / time scheduled.
- Are formatted in bold. (Note: I’ve also discovered how to format in italics or both bold & italics).
It’s All About Those Asterisks
Task formatting is as easy as adding one or more asterisk. Check it out in the short video below.
