First things first, I’ve been circling agenda for a while and it’s getting closer and closer to a tool I can see using exclusively as task/project/life management system in the next year (sharing extension is a hangup but it seems like you’re really invested in that and iOS 13 provides some decent workarounds in any case.)
The iOS reminders integration is a huge step, but I do want to nudge on the utility of allowing undated reminders. Here’s my system and why this is a bit of a friction for me. I capture input throughout the day in a general inbox in one of three forms (notes—including photos of hand written notes), events, and reminders. I use dictation to Siri for a lot of this—events and reminders especially, and dictate to the native iOS apps because otherwise dictation to Siri is clunky at best.
In the evening, or whenever I next get a chance, I go through that general inbox and extract action items, ascribe whatever tags, projects, contexts, due dates are appropriate. But I also keep a rolling undated list of reminders—an “if I still care when I get a chance” list. If Agenda isn’t capturing the undated reminders I dictate to Siri that whole reminder category is lost (It’s still in Reminders, but the whole appeal of agenda is getting notes, calendars and reminders in one place in an intuitive way—if I’m flipping back and forth between apps, agenda is not accomplishing what I need it to). The clearest workaround I see is dictating to Siri something like “remind me tomorrow to add an item to my someday-maybe folder saying undated: reread Jane Eyre‘”, and then when I sit down to process my input, convert that reminder to an note/checklist item on a list in my “Someday-maybe” folder. But as you see it’s a bit clunky—I’d rather just be able to add an undated reminder to my someday maybe list without the intermediate step.
If there’s some workaround I’m entirely missing, or plans to address this, I would be curious to hear it.
