I’m becoming addicted to use Agenda for everyday todo and notes.
Regarding todo management Agenda lacks the possibility to mark a todo item as Not-done/won’t done (available in Things3)
A canceled item can be marked with an X instead of a V and eventually its text can be strike through.
Wish you full the gap with the competition
Note that you can use strikethrough format, so maybe that is an approach for you.
You can also attach tags, so you could have #cancelled
I usually strike through text of canceled items.
- it would be definitely nicer with an X symbol
- and easier if the strike through is automatic
I just came here looking for this too. I fully agree with @alessandrodn.
I believe changes in this direction are coming very soon…
Indeed, version 11 will allow you to choose exactly this option.
Actually, reading the Beta 11 release note, I think there was a misunderstanding here.
I was referring to canceled items, which items I choose not to do.
My reference model is the way Things work, where a checklist item can be:
- to do
- won’t do
Ah, you can simply apply the strikethrough format to those (shift-cmd-x), we have no plans to make that an explicit checklist state.
While other apps focus specifically on the past, present, or future, Agenda is the only note taking app that tracks them all at once, giving you the complete picture. (https://agenda.com)
I think decisions like cancelling a task or a note at all belongs to the past. So it should be tracked by Agenda.
- a cancelling symbol for checklists
- a cancelling symbol for Notes
Well I have a workaround too, to handle cancelled items or notes. So it is definitly not a feature that is badly needed. But I think it is in the sense of Agenda, to have such a feature.
We have thought about it but in this case feel that the tools are there and don’t need a dedicated feature (to not bloat the app), for example to cancel a checklist you can just mark the next of the item in Strikethrough format (cmd-shift-x), and to cancel a note you could just add a tag
#cancelled at the beginning of the note to make it standout, or add a “- Cancelled” suffix to the title and collapse it.
Certainly you are right: You have the deeper look. And there are several workarounds to solve this “problem” yet (as you mentioned).
I am thankful, that you chose to not bloat the app: this would be worse than to give up such a feature.
Just as a remark. I love your App, just rated it with five stars in the app-store and extend subscription for another year.
That’s super kind of you, thank you!!
