Tasks can be saved as templates by going to "task actions" and selecting "export as a template." The template will be saved locally. Saved templates can then be imported by going to "task actions" button and clicking "import from template." This allows you to use past task items as a starting point for creating new tasks. See More
Todoist allows you to perform advanced queries to find tasks that are overdue, have a certain priority level or label, are within a certain project, are assigned to a certain person, or have a deadline set within a certain date range. It also allows combining different queries, removing certain results from the queries, and creating either/or statements. These queries can be saved as filters for easy access. Filters can be color-coded. See More
Todoist's web and desktop interfaces have a 2-column layout. The right column has all tasks organized in nested lists with color codes and information such as what people are assigned to each task and which project the task is part of. The left column offers ways of accessing various groups of tasks – tasks that have to be completed within a certain timeframe, tasks that are a part of a certain project or have certain labels attached to them, etc. The left column also contains filters that allow even more advanced ways of finding a group of tasks. The mobile interface follows a similar design philosophy, but gives each column a separate view. See More
I was looking for a Markdown editor that can let me save the notes on disk so I can save wherever I want (including Subversion and Git). Joplin is good but it has its own database (no plain files by default). Anywahy you can export everything to plain files, but the file names are random text (an internal ID). VNote is not so user friendly (in my opinion), but it has support for PlantUML, and many other plugins. Finally I found out that VS Code has a built-in Markdown editor, many plugins (including PlantUML) and of course you can integrate it with Subversion and Git. It is the perfect tool for writing documentation in Markdown with simple PlantUML diagrams. See More
