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.

GTD: The Definitive Guide to The Weekly Review

Published on May 05, 2014 by Francisco Sáez

New functionality in FacileThings to help you do the Weekly Review properly, easily and quickly.


New feature: Collect

Published on March 27, 2014 by Francisco Sáez

New feature in FacileThings to collect stuff, quickly and efficiently.

Today we have added a new feature, Collect, in our GTD application, FacileThings. Of course, it’s not that you could not collect stuff before, but now you can do it from anywhere in the application, more quickly and easily, and if necessary, providing more information.

We have removed the collecting boxes that were on each list and added a general option in the top menu bar:

This way you will be able to collect at any time, which is critical in the GTD philosophy. Whatever you are doing in the application, collecting must be something you can do immediately, minimally interrupting what you were doing.


Update: Completing Projects and Achieving Goals

Published on March 14, 2014 by Francisco Sáez

We have updated FacileThings to allow you to complete projects and achieve goals.

Today we have deployed a FacileThings update which will help you have your projects and goals better organized.

Officially, now you can complete projects. The way that projects were archived before was sort of ambiguous, since the archive could include both completed projects and unfinished projects you could not continue for whatever reason. Now, you can clearly distinguish which projects you have In Progress, Waiting or Completed:

NOTE: All the projects you had archived are now “waiting” so you need to set as “completed” those that are really finished.
