  • implementing GTD w/ relational database

    I posted this previously on the other forum; probably more appropriate here...


    I want to implement a system where my Next Actions are rows in a relational database, one that I can carry around in my Treo 600.

    Fields will be: Action, Context, Project, ActionDate, etc.

    At least three advantages: 1) separate action lists (i.e., @phone, @store) not necessary: simply run parameter query on Context field; 2) separate tickler system not necessary: simply run query on ActionDate<=Today ...incubating items filter out and become visible only on/after their ActionDate; 3) find all of a project's Next Actions by running a parameter query on Project field.

    Questions: (1) any advice on structuring this system, from those of you who have set it up this way ? (2) I am new to PDAs...any of you ready to help me get an Access-esque DB onto my Treo?

    P.S. On second thought, maybe just an Excel-type spredsheet with filters would work...

    Relational database manager on Palm OS device.

    I do not think it is the best way to implement GTD on Palm OS device using Access-like database or other relational database manager. This device has its own Personal Information databases (Calendar, Contacts, Todo, Memo) that you can use for GTD or try the third-party software (Bonsai, Life Balance, or Shadow Plan for example).

      check out DDH Software's HandBase for the program and at PocketGear.Com you can get a database written for it Called ProManage - it's a database for HandBase built around GTD

        I agree fully with TesTeq here.

        My personal favorite for GTD on PALM is notestudio.
