checklists (reference items?) in GTD applications
Are there any GTD applications which have a support for checklists?
A "checklist" is a special type of a reference item what one can link to a task/action at the Processingstage. Structurally it could be just a list of the bullet points.
Later, at the Review and Do stage one may bring that list up and use it as a reference when executing the action.
For example the "AnswerARectuiterEmailWhenNotLooking" check list could look as following:
[ ] Add a greeting (use the greeting they used)
[ ] Say thanks for their interest
[ ] Tell that I am currently not looking
[ ] Add the short signature
So every time one needs to politely respond the recruiter email one can do it easily (no analysis required) and in a consistent manner.
When I said that a checklist is a special type of a reference item I also wanted to highlight that these check lists would be mostly re-usable ("how to answer email", "how to buy something under $100", "how to buy something above $1000", etc) and not task/actions specific reference items.
I am currently shopping for a GTD application and only looked at the free (v2.1.1) version of the Thinking Rock - looks good, but it lacks the ability to link reference items to the actions.
Any applications you can recommend which do support for linking reference items to tasks/actions and if they have a support for these "special reusable checklist like" reference items - that would be just great.
