GTD-specific task application trains you in pure GTD principles as you work.


Facile Things is an noble attempt to teach you a pure GTD approach as you manage your tasks. The original interface was especially good at doing this, stepping you through the process of a mid dump and the 5 phases of GTD for each task.

Facile Things supports unlimited tagging (contexts), Goals that can be connected to projects IF the goals already exist (which is very awkward), and Contacts (which must already be Facile Things users to utilize some functionality--it will not invite them for you).

Collaboration ability appears to be a work in progress as of this writing, but it looks like it is coming.

TRO Implementation: To do TRO with Facile Things, do not use the built-in Waiting For functionality--it does not support dates. Instead, use the W/F method taught in TRO Online Training. Use the Date feature as the hard date, and use special #ThisWeek, #NextWeek, #ThisMonth, #NextMonth tags as soft dates. Use #Today as a Do Today indicator. You cannot use special characters with tags. Tasks cannot be transferred from one project to another, so use the inline+notes project approach for most project tasks.
