Due the abundance of information out there about "Getting Things Done" (GTD), David & Co. has responded with a web page that provides an official definition of this term:

I see this board https://gtdsupport.netcentrics.com/forum/default.asp with what looks like a nice resource.
My question is how do you register to participate? I don't mind registering if that's needed but didn't see where to sign up. I thought maybe it was connected to the...
I use Outlook at my desk, and need help with my Palm. I don't use Outlook categories to sort by context (Phone, Desk, Errands, etc) because context keeps changing (eg I make a call and now must send that person something) and I like to drag and drop from context to context. Instead, I've set up...
I understand that Palm can sync up to 15 categories from Outlook.
Does Pocket Outlook have an unlimited capability here or am I in for 3rd party add ons?
Please post reply and e-mail -email@example.com
Please take out the -remove- of course
I currently synchronize my Palm at home and at work with Outlook on both computers. I'm interested in the GTD Add In and am wondering if anyone else does this successfully with the Add In installed?
Any tips or pointers to keep the synchronizing smooth and not end up with duplicates ?
I'm using Shadow for my projects and DateBk5 for my next actions. But I see a little problem with that.
When I'm checking off a next action in DateBk5 this will checking also off the same next action in Shadow. But if that next action was the only child of a mother-todo in the project,...
I recently purchased one of the folding portable keyboards for my Palm m500. That purchase was one of the best investments in productivity that I've ever made. So far I've used it for the following:
Taking Class and meeting notes using the Thought Manager outliner.
Processing my "In" while I'm...
Would someone be kind enough to measure the actual size of the pads of paper for the notetaker wallet sold on this site? I'm considering buying the wallet, but it's possible that the pads of paper will fit a case I have for my palm. (That way I'd just have one thing to carry around.)
I recently finished reading GTD. I really like the concepts GTD introduces, and I thought it would be nice if there was a piece of software that perfectly lined up with these concepts. There is the Outlook add-in, but many people do not use or down-right hate outlook. Moreover, unless you have a...
Could anyone recommend some action lists tailored specifically for home makers? Two chidren - a 3 year old and an infant.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Was planning on simulating PaperTiger using FIleMaker?
Anyone using Due Dates in Outlook tasks with any success?
I'm beginning to find that they're getting in the way.
Here's how I'm using them: I tend to set "projected" dates for my next actions, and "ideal dates" for items on my "Waiting For" list. For example, "Call Bob to set prices" might...
Is anyone aware of what, if any, character will drop a category to the bottom of the category list in either the ToDo or Memo section of the Palm software (i.e. just as @ bumps the item to the top)?
Thanks in advance.
For years, I have been a BIG advocate of using Microsoft Outlook both at home and at work for an organizational tool and for its flexibility. At my new employer, I find myself in a Lotus Notes environment, and the interface of the Notes client is far less flexible, by comparison. Has anyone found a...
Does anybody know how to backup Outlook? Twice now I've had to reformat my hard drive and re-install all my programs. Since I customize Outlook quite a bit, it took me forever to re-do it. This time I lost all my lists.
I've downloaded Microsoft's pfbackup.exe, but I don't know how to use it to...
If I purchased the add-in for the desktop version of Outlook, would the various categories, settings, views, etc. be transferred to the Pocket PC version or would I have to do that manually?
Does anybody know a good database for filing general reference material?
It should be a desktop based one, which doesn't need a server & it should support such things as, personal categories or keywords, darg&drop, the possibility to add web pages, e-mails & notes from Outlook.
Our 50-person virtual company uses Upshot for managing sales function. I have a laptop using Windows 2000 but Office 97, so cannot use the Add-in Tool. Have any of you had experience in using GTD with a Palm and Upshot? I want to have minimum level of duplication. Thank you.
I frequently create many new Projects, because I have new issues I become responsbile for when a customer service issues becomes mine to handle.
I don't know if it's due to it , but sometimes I'll create a project ( not in the tools/options area, it's always from within Task - i go to the last...
I've been using the outlook plugin for some time. I have a question.
How do you use the task to create multiple tasks from a single email?
Anyone using the updated of Plan Plus for Outlook with GTD Plug-In? How do they work together? Does it matter which is installed first?
