Gather checkboxes?

I have a specific project where I am always involved in chains of email and conference calls. I’ve created an agenda item for each of these communications and each of them ends up containing a list of things to do designated by checkboxes. However, I keep having to scroll back through all the prior agenda items to find earlier uncompleted checkbox tasks. Is there any method by which unchecked tasks can be gathered into a single agenda item?

That’s not possible. But I understand from other threads that there are plans to implement something to address the problem.

Putting an “Uncompleted” tag on each item with an uncompleted checkbox, maybe? Doing a search would list them all for you straight away :blush:


The app is dying for all sorts of smart searches (like OmniFocus perspectives).

One idea would be to use a tag named something like “action_needed” or “todo”, then add the tag to the sidebar. It’s an extra step of work to stave us over for now…

Thanks everyone, tags are a good short term solution.


The tags are a great short-term hack, but I love this idea. Bear for Mac and Dropbox Paper both have an aggregation of todo items that is really smart and handy.
