I'm trying to ensure that the hard edges between calendar items and next actions doesn't become blurred.
I'm using Outlook on both my PC and PDA and I'm finding that I'm using dated tasks for day specific next actions, rather than calendar all day events.
Outlook is setup to show these dated tasks on the calendar view on their relevant day, but at the same time, hide them in the tasks view until their start date is current etc.
It's working fine; they're clearly viewable on the calendar and at the same time they donít clutter up the task view while they're inactive. My only slight concern is that in GTD speak, these items are generally classed as calendar all day events, however in practice these dated tasks are working the same.
Do you regimentally keep these as calendar all day items or do you use the dated task option instead? I think they may have been calendar items initially as you couldnít view dated tasks on the calendar in Outlook until more recent versions?
Any comments are most appreciated.
