New feature: Notes
Today we have released a new feature in FacileThings, our GTD application: Notes. Now you can attach a Note, that is, a text of any length, to any of your tasks.
This option will allow you, in some cases, to more clearly define what a job is, since you are no longer limited by the current length of the descriptions (255 characters). To add notes, just edit the task and select the Notes tab:
If an action has already attached a Note, the editor will show you a view mode, which presents the information in a more readable way. At any time, you can click the edit option to update the text:
In your lists, you can identify which tasks have a Note associated because of the icon that accompanies them. Clicking on that icon will lead you directly to the Note:
Checklists and Perspective
As long as we added Notes to the stuff edit form, we also decided to redesign it and group the data in a more convenient form. There is a new tab named Perspective, where you can view and edit the Project, Goal and Area of Responsibility associated with the action:
Of course, you can also add Notes to your Routines, which will be inherited by all the actions they generate. We have also completely redesigned the edit form, grouping the information in a more logical way.
Note: The checklist option that was on the list of routines no longer exists. To access the checklist, use the edit option.
Emails and Evernote
From now on, when you send an email to FacileThings, you will receive in your Inbox an item that exposes the subject of the email and have the entire body in its Notes section.
Similarly, when you sync with Evernote, you will receive, for each note, an item that exposes the title and tags of the note, and have the whole text in its Notes section.
Note: Now you can open your Evernote notes with the local application and also directly on the web. This is useful if you are using Linux or an iPad, for example. Hat tip to Adam Houston for the trick.
Note: Synchronization with Evernote is now slower, since the entire contents of the notes is transmitted now.
