A list of minor changes and bug fixes on FacileThings.

In recent weeks we have made some minor changes and bug fixes in FacileThings. Here is the list of modifications.

Reference Material

We added the Perspective tab when editing an item belonging to the Reference Material list. This way, you can change the project the information belongs to (before you could not) and assign material specifically to a goal or area of responsibility.

FacileThings Report: Survey Results and Goals for 2015

Published on January 07, 2015 by Francisco Sáez

FacileThings Annual Report, market analysis and strategic plan for 2015.

In any project that requires some creativity—as any endeavor—it’s necessary to switch from time to time between acting and reflecting. Sometimes you have to shutdown, stop doing things, think of what you’ve done so far and discuss what should be the next steps to follow.

In FacileThings we have dedicated the month of December to make a full big-picture review. We’ve reviewed and analyzed a lot of data to see how we can improve the lives of our users for the next year, while we maintain our vision of developing a personal productivity tool based 100% on the GTD methodology.

For this, a very important source of data comes from a survey we conducted among our customers in late November 1. Below I show you the results of the survey, along with some conclusions and our development plan for 2015.


FacileThings: Changelog (Nov. 2014)

Published on November 20, 2014 by Francisco Sáez

A list of minor changes and bug fixes on FacileThings.

Lately we have made some minor changes and bug fixes—most of them requested and detected by you. This is the list of changes, grouped by the application sections.


Repetitive tasks can remain inactive in the Tickler File until a number of days before the date they are scheduled. This way, you are not distracted by stuff you still don’t need to worry about. Previously, they could be activated, at most, the day before. Now we have added the possibility that a routine can be activated the same day it’s been scheduled:

FacileThings: Utilities And Enhancements

Published on September 25, 2014 by Francisco Sáez

We have added a new Utilities section and made some improvements.

Yesterday we added a new Utilities section within the Account option, in which we will incorporate little tools to facilitate your work and organization with FacileThings.

Right now you can already find a couple of tools to help you better manage your tags:

  • Renaming a tag allows you to change the text of any tag in all the actions where that tag appears. Sometimes we choose a bad name for a tag, or we create more than one for the same concept because we do not remember which one we used the first time. This utility allows you to use better names you could not change for historical reasons and also to merge two or more tags that actually have the same meaning for you.

  • Deleting a tag allows you to remove a tag from all the items where it is at the moment. Although the tag disappears, the text of the tag stays—without the # symbol. Be careful, because this operation cannot be undone.

People: The collaborative function of GTD in FacileThings

Published on September 01, 2014 by Francisco Sáez

New feature in FacileThings to help you delegate tasks efficiently.


GTD is not a project management system but a methodology for personal productivity. This means that it is not a collaborative system per se, where everyone can access, view and even edit your tasks.

However, certain tasks that you should not do—or don’t want to do—may appear in your daily workflow. In that case, you must delegate them to other people or entities and put them in your Waiting For list, so that you can remember them in each Weekly Review and take appropriate action if necessary.

Since you’re still responsible for those tasks and surely they will have an impact on other future tasks or projects, you must be aware of their progress.


Update: Support Section

Published on June 22, 2014 by Francisco Sáez

We have redesigned and updated with new features the Support section of FacileThings.

Today we have updated the design of the Support section of FacileThings and also added some improvements that will facilitate our communication with you.

support tickets

  1. Active and closed tickets separated. Now you can quickly view the requests you have still pending. To access your closed tickets, click on the “History” button.
  2. Keyboard shortcuts. You can use CTRL+ENTER to open a new ticket and to add more information to an existing one.
  3. Open idle tickets are closed automatically. If, after being answered, you do not act on the ticket within 7 days, we will assume that you are happy with the response and the ticket will be automatically closed.
  4. Attaching files. You can attach to a ticket a screenshot or any other files that may facilitate the resolution of the incident.
