  • Tungsten T: Alpha Tasks?

    I have an issue that prevents me from fully utilizing my Tungsten T while on the go and I think the answer is probably obvious but I am missing it. The following may sound very trite, but it is this type of detail that really makes a difference for me in fully using the PDA while implementing GTD.

    Does anyone know how to get a alphabetical view of tasks within Categories while using TO DO?

    I have categories set up within outlook on my PC. It is great with all projects & next actions listed alphabetically within each category eg.

    @PROJECTS NOW
    AOS Integration Team charters are complete
    Critical Talent Development Programs are scheduled
    Delegated projects list is up to date
    OPS Committee Development Day in June is a huge success

    The problem comes in on the synced Tungsten T. When viewing the tasks within TO DO Categories, I loose the alpha listing capability which for me is key. The only thing I can figure is to indicate priority (1,2,3) and it does list in priority order but I am not interested in that game. The pure alpha works great for me and provides easy reference and quick context.

    You'll note that I use the "written as if it is true" format for my projects and the lose of alpha capability is a headache! It really prevents me from reaching for the PDA.

    Does anyone know an easy fix or if the capability exists? It seems like it should be a slam dunk!

    Thanks for any help.

    Alpha Tasks

    I don't have a TT, but a T3. As far as I know, you'll need some third party software because of the way tasks are organized on the Palm by the rudimentary To-Do application.

      The only thing I've found that does this is datebk5, which has a bit of a learning curve to start off with...

        Use Memo instead

        This issue was already discussed on this forum and the posiible workaround is to use Memos for Projects/Next Actions. You will not be able to specify the Project's required completion date but you will be able to alpha sort everything.

          Check out Can Do

          There is a tasks replacement called Can Do that sorts tasks alphabetically. Take a look at http://www.elkasoft.com/

              Another application that will sort ToDo by description is KsToDo. The current version is 1.5.2 and it is freeware!

                Sorry for the additional post. The same author has a replacement program for the datebook that contains additional functionality. Here is a link to both programs.

                  Didn't know that KsTodo was available in english

                  Thanks for the info re: ksTodo!

                  Looked at it a while back, but then it was in japanese so I didn't understand it.
