Organizing your tasks in a list can certainly increase your productivity and help you stay focused. Life today is so fast and hectic that we often forget some of our important chores, and using a good to-do list program is a good idea. We all have those few days when we have millions of things to do, and we end up doing nothing.
There are hundreds of free To-Do software and applications available on the internet today, but most have intricate interfaces and useless features to deal with. The ToDo list app should be very simple and quick. It should be something that quickly reminds you of the tasks to be done and makes your day more organized and manageable. Today we will take a look at ToDo.Txt. This app stores your tasks in a simple text document and helps you organize your day-to-day tasks very well.
How to use ToDo.Txt to manage Tasks
Todo.txt is a text-based system that uses plain text format to save your tasks. This free application is available for almost every popular platform. You need to download the version compatible with your device and start using it. There is no need to make an account; you can start making your list right away. However, you need to log in to sync it with your other accounts. You can use your Google account or Dropbox account to log in.
The best thing about this application is that you can sync your to-do lists with all your accounts and access it on any of your devices. Since it uses plain text format to save your list, you can open and edit it in any of the text editors available on your device. It is a very simple application to use. You need to add your tasks like shopping lists, an appointment with a doctor, some meeting, etc.
Click on Add Task and start adding your list. You will get three options while adding the tasks- Priority, Context/Subject, and the Date. Your tasks will be prioritized alphabetically; for example, the task with (A) will appear on the top and (B) will be the next and so on. Context/Subject lets you select the context of your task, and the Date option will let you add the date and time for your tasks.
Using the Context, Projects, and Tags, however, is not mandatory but it helps you segregate the tasks. If you want to search your tasks related to @Home, go to the Tag @Home, and you will find all your tasks there. Similarly, you can go to the tabs, Tags, Projects, and Contexts to get quick access to all your tasks. The program automatically cuts the tasks completed.
From the three dots on the bottom right corner, you can adjust the settings of your program, which include the Sync settings, Notification settings, and much more. You can adjust the notification settings for your pending/due tasks. Also, you can add new projects or delete the unwanted ones from here. You can sync all your to-do list using Google Drive and Dropbox with todo.txt.
Overall, this is a simple alternative to complicated To-do apps. It is simple and can be used cross-platform. You can download the application from here.
