Published on October 05, 2015 by Francisco Sáez

We have improved the Email-to-Inbox feature in FacileThings.

This weekend we have added a few improvements to the web application, most of them dedicated to enhance the FacileThings email-to-inbox feature.

Let’s see the improvements in detail:

1. Attaching files to any item

We have added the ability to attach any files to any item of any list, so you can attach specific information to any task.


New Mobile App for iPhone and Android

Published on September 21, 2015 by Francisco Sáez

New mobile application for managing your GTD system on the go.

new mobile app log-in

This weekend we have taken the new mobile application out of Beta and it has become the new official FacileThings app, version 2. Although it is (and always will be) a work in progress, we believe it’s already a much better app than the previous version 1.

The new app is available for iPhone (App Store) and Android (Google Play) under the name of FacileThings 2. This is a completely new application, so you’ll have to download it from the store (it will not automatically update over version 1).

Let’s take a look at the current features of the new app.


The Weekly Review, Revised

Published on July 16, 2015 by Francisco Sáez

We have improved the Weekly Review process in FacileThings.

It’s been just over a year when we developed the guide to do the Weekly Review in our GTD app FacileThings. It’s a tool that provides you with the necessary work structure to help you consolidate the habit of reviewing.

During this time we have found different points of improvement, thanks largely to the feedback received from our users, and the time has come to apply them.

So here are the improvements you will find the next time you do your Weekly Review:

FacileThings: Changelog (July 2015)

A list of minor changes and bug fixes on FacileThings.

Here is a list of minor changes and bug fixes that have been made on FacileThings in recent weeks:

Fixed sidebar

In our last update, project management with Personal Kanban, we introduced in the Projects section a line to get a separated scroll in the left menu and the page content. Since it provides greater control over what you want to view, we also extended the use of this fixed sidebar to the other sections:

New GTD Project Management in FacileThings: Personal Kanban

Published on June 17, 2015 by Francisco Sáez

From now on, you can choose Kanban Personal to manage specific projects in your GTD system.

In GTD, most of your projects (by definition, any outcome that needs more than one action step) will be a sequence of actions to be performed one after the other to achieve the end result. In such projects, FacileThings shows you only the very first next action of each project in the Next Actions list. And when you complete it, the following action shows up automatically. So straightforward.

However there are cases, in projects that are more complex and/or more people are involved, where it can be convenient to have more than one action of the same project active in your Next Actions list.

We have researched into different ways to allow you to manage such projects. After testing different kinds of diagrams and methods, we have chosen to implement a Kanban-type management, for several reasons:

  • Its simple and visual character is suitable for anyone. No need to be an engineer to manage a project.
  • Despite its simplicity, it’s very powerful.
  • It is a flexible and lean system, highly consistent with the GTD philosophy.

New date-time picker

Some time ago we changed the date-time picker that is used to assign a reminder to a task. The former became outdated and didn’t allow you to select hours from a tablet.

FacileThings Calendar: New Views By Day, Week And Month

Published on April 06, 2015 by Francisco Sáez

We have updated FacileThings with new Calendar views and some improvements in the synchronization with Google Calendar.

Today we have updated FacileThings with interesting improvements in the use of the Calendar.

In addition to the traditional view of “event list”, now you have a monthly, weekly and daily view of your Calendar, allowing you to have a better perspective of upcoming events.

The buttons on the top right (1) lets you switch between the standard view and the daily, weekly and monthly views. The system will remember the last view you used and it will be shown the next time you visit the Calendar list. The second button group (2) lets you move through the calendar, going to the previous or next day, week or month—depending on the view in which you are. The “today” button helps you quickly return to the initial state.
