Praise for Remember the Milk
I have been using Remember the Milk for just about as long as it has been around, and it has always been a key part of my GTD systems. It is simply THE best list manager I have ever used - bar none.
3 best things about RTM
1. In the cloud so you can access your lists anywhere, including smartphones and tablets
2. Easy list creation and separation by tags and tabs
3. Phenomenal search capabilities
I have no relation or interest to RTM, but have been a happy user for so long, I just want to make sure that everyone is aware that it is a great option.
Back on track, let's keep the rants to a minimum
So in keeping with the spirit of this thread, let's see how everyone is actually using RTM for their GTD/list-capture within their workflow.
Only then can we make an accurate assessment as to whether or not it works within the goals of GTD or not.
In my particular case, RTM (web-side of the app) is rife with bugs, duplication and lots of problems synchronizing with my BlackBerry. On the BB side, everything looks great, organized and syncs to my Tasks list.
I'm not sure why, or where it happened, but every single time I log into the website, every task I have, is duplicated by 2.
It's very frustrating to have to log into the website, select all tasks, delete them all, then go to my BB, uninstall the RTM app, reinstall the app and force an upstream sync.
I have to do this because simply deleting everything from the web side of things, then forcing a one-way sync from my BB does not push all tasks upstream to the RTM servers.
I too, have a problem with the lack of clear, reliable function in cloud-based task/list apps, and so I rely on what is on my BB only, always, and keep the web side of things as "backup", in case my BB breaks or blows up.
Advanced GTD with Remember the Milk RTM
Found a great post on step by step implementation - merging GTD philosophy with RTM tools - http://blog.rememberthemilk.com/2008...mber-the-milk/ - haven't done it yet, myself, but I think this is the roadmap to save me all sorts of time and pain.
