Get It Done / Manage It: December News

I hope everyone is enjoying the fall. We have been very busy here recovering from the busy “back to school” season.

Here are some of the new things we added to Manage It (MI) and Get It Done (GID) to help make you more productive:

  • Smart Parse for Quick Add and Email (MI + GID)
  • Import from spreadsheet (MI + GID)
  • Export creation date (MI + GID)
  • Quickly add tags (MI + GID)
  • More effort options (MI + GID)
  • Widen the left nav and added tooltips (GID)
  • Added “No Area” area (GID)
  • Move completed to trash (GID)
  • Fixed a number of bugs
  • Push notifications for Get It Done iOS and Mac OSX

Here is more detail about the 2 new features we are most excited about.

Smart Parse for Quick Add and Email (MI + GID)

The new feature we are most excited about is the ability for you to add tags, project, due dates, and person assignments quickly through the “add task” field (Quick Add) or through email.

Just type in something like “Take out the garbage !tomorrow” into the subject of an email or in the Quick Add field in the app and we will create the task “Take out the garbage” with a due date of tomorrow. Here are more things you can do:

App Token Symbol Example
GID Project (looks for complete match and case insensitive)
%
Take out the garbage %Personal
GID+MI Focus or People (looks for whole word match)

Searches in the following order:
  1. Focus area
  2. People’s name / email
@
Take out the garbage @Today
Take out the garbage @bob
Take out the garbage @email@email.com
GID Tag (looks for complete match and case insensitive)
#
Take out the garbage #high #home
Take out the garbage #high priority
GID+MI Due Date (accepts dd/dd/dddd, dd/dd, +[num]day, today, tomorrow, yesterday, next week)
!
Take out the garbage !8/26/2017 (dd/mm/yyyy works if UK date setting is set)
Take out the garbage !8/26
Take out the garbage !today
Take out the garbage !tomorrow
Take out the garbage !nextweek
Take out the garbage !friday
Take out the garbage !+2 days
Take out the garbage !+2weeks
Take out the garbage !+2 years

Tip for GID users: Projects belong to Areas. So if you create a project called ‘Home’ in your ‘Home’ Area, you can send your tasks to ‘@home’ and it will be set to the correct Area.

Import from spreadsheet (MI + GID)

A highly requested feature was for you to be able to import spreadsheets of tasks into the app. We recently added this to both Get It Done and Manage It apps. We hope this will save you time when importing a large number of tasks into the app.

Hopefully we made you just a little more productive this month. As always, please send any questions or comments our way.
