A post was split to a new topic: First Impressions after a few days
Notes are ordered by default in reverse chronological order, like a facebook timeline. The most recent are at the top.
You can change the order by clicking/tapping the project title at the top of the list, and scrolling to the bottom. There is an item there to reverse the order for that project.
I can see that. It’s useful for me to have the Perspectives that OmniFocus offers. Because I run my own business I have lots of different projects broken into actions and those actions have to appear in the right way. So if I’m busy and need quick actions, or I’m feeling focused and want to tackle tasks that require more thinking, and so on.
I’ve actually noticed that I’m using Agenda almost like a journal for my projects. I even have a personal journal in there.
Agenda is such an odd app, in the best possible way, that I suspect everyone will use it a little differently.
Oh, I see the option now. Thanks!
Hi all. After having bought Agenda and trying it out a couple of times, it just sat in my dock. I couldn’t get used to it, or so it seemed.
Only when I found myself with some time to kill, I tried it again. I must say that, for me, Agenda really took some getting used to but it is worth the effort in the end.
I am a self-employed communications trainer - a one-man band - so I have a lot of meetings, training sessions, things to plan and notes to take.
A CRM is somehow too elaborate for someone like me, I find. So I tried a lot of different apps and programs to help me get things done effectively but almost all of them had many drawbacks.
For me and for now, Agenda only has two: Contacts- and Reminders integration. The rest of it is too good to not use as my main support app.
@robbie07: For me, too: Reminders and Contacts is important. Both topics are on the road map:
Then again; reminder integration is less important (to me) than Addressbook (Contacts) now that I have found out how easy it is to plan stuff in Agenda - without annoying alarms and things.
Just asign a date range to items with deadlines and put them on the agenda so you will be reminded of them regularly. And if it helps, link them to calendar events.
A great App that I am still getting my head around. I have been using for a few weeks now - only the IOS app as I use a windows based desktop (when I use it these days). It took me a while to get ithe app working how I wanted and I am still rearranging and changing as I learn more. However I think it is an app that is worth the time and energy to get it set up how you want.
I could probably use other apps to do what I do but I like the layout of Agenda. I Like a clean layout and Agenda is helping with this.
I collapse the majority of categories and use saved searches to bring up what I need. Some categories I will goto less frequently for example I Keep pdf Manuals and documents that I am likely to refer to offline under one category this will be opened less frequently than other categories.
My main goto categories are the Experiences category, which at this stage has two Projects ‘Events’ and ‘Dining’, and the Projects Category which contains all my active or todo projects. In one respect I am using a Project as a Sub Category and my notes as a project. Each note has an Overview section, an Activity list and Tags to indicate status I.e todo, started, inprogress etc. using a single note to cover an entire project means I can get all the info when I use the tag search. I keep pretty much everything collapsed and expand when needed.
I also store documents and manuals on my own cloud and use a link these to access when need.
I have found that it is not always easy to find where things are on the IOS version as often the help refers to File Menu which doesn’t appear to be on the IOS version. But hey I’m retired so have the time ( well sort off) to search and play with the app.
Overall I think this is a great app. I also use Evernote and do so only because of the cross platform syncing. (Android phone, Windows PC and IPad). My current work around is using google calendar; that way date dependent projects are seen on the android and I can use the iOS app if I need further information.
Keep up the great work, looking forward to see what the future brings to Agenda.
I’ve overseen this app when I tried it the first time, some months ago. But two weeks ago I bought it and I can tell you, I’m so happy with it that I’ve closed all my other stuff for todos and notes today.
I’m using Agenda on my workstation (macMini), my macBookPro, the iPhone, and an iPad.
Also I appreciate this community, more or less built into the app. Better than any help-page!
Keep on goin’
Thank you so much, that’s wonderful to hear!
I like your App very much and bought my 2nd year of support.
As a teacher of mathematics i‘d like to see support for formulas set with LaTeX (I saw soon, that iA Writer solves this very elegant).
Thanks for your work and i am looking forward for the features to come.
Thank you so much for your continued support Matthias! We probably won’t add direct support for LaTeX ourselves in the near future, but perhaps we can add the option for others to do so in a future update.
