Using the Todopad

What is the Todopad?

The Todopad is a “TaskQuark pad” designed to provide a view of the tasks you have set to work on today, or at any other specific date if you change the current date.

It is composed of the Agenda and the ToDo List, plus other helping columns with tasks:

  • The Agenda is a list of tasks scheduled for a given day ordered by time.

  • The ToDo List is a list of tasks that are scheduled for that day but without a specific time.

  • The Overdue Tasks is a list of tasks that are past overdue but not stopped or ended.

Tip

The very same task may appear in more than one column, when there are different date events set for that task or some other conditions are met. Use the Select option in the task context menu to select all the occurrences of that task. Or press Crtl+Click to select them all.

What is the Agenda?

The Agenda is a list of tasks scheduled for the selected day. By default, the selected day is the date of “today” according to your computer clock.

In the Agenda you can see the tasks ordered by scheduled work time. Also, the events of tasks with a time are shown in the Agenda.

What is the ToDo List?

The ToDo List is a list of tasks that are scheduled to work on for the selected date, but without any specific work time set.

In the ToDo List you can see the tasks ordered by priority. However, when a task is due for the selected day, it is moved to the top of the list. This way you can see first the tasks that are due for that selected date even if its priority is low.

What is the Overdue Tasks List?

The Overdue Tasks is a list of tasks not ended or stopped that are overdue in a selected date.

This list is useful to see the tasks that have not been completed by the date they were due.

How to Use the Todopad

Creating a new task

To create a new task, click on the green plus icon at the top the pad. The Task form will be displayed where you can enter the task title, description, and other details (see Working with Tasks).

Changing the current date

The Todopad selects by default the actual current date from your computer clock.

You can change the Todopad current date by clicking on the arrows in the top left corner of the pad. The list of tasks is presented as if this day was the new “today”.

You can go back to the actual current day by clicking on the date itself, on the top left corner of the pad.

Configuring the Todopad

Toggle all tasks

By default, the Todopad does not show in the Agenda and ToDo List the tasks that are done or stopped.

You can toggle to show also theses tasks by clicking on the “toggle All Tasks” button in the top right corner of the pad.

Filtering the Todopad

Selecting projects

By clicking on the project list on the sidebar, you can filter the tasks by project or subproject.

Using the filter

You can filter the tasks in the Todopad by typing a word in the filter box in the top right corner of the pad.

The tasks will be filtered by the title, to show only those tasks that match the characters entered.

Tip

Press Crtl + F to enable the filter box.
