Tickler? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
There is a mechanism. You put a start date on an action, and use the built-in Growl notification support. Configure Growl to leave the "now available" notifications on the screen instead of removing them after a few seconds. When the event becomes available, you get the notification.

The way I'm working a Tickler into my workflow is as follows:

I have a Tickler Single Actions List and a Tickler Context. Any item I want to Tickle I simply assign it to the Tickler SAL, the Tickler Context and set the start date for the day I want to be reminded.

The Tickler Context and SAL are both at the top of their respective lists; that way on the given day I can't help but notice the Tickled item, whether I'm in Project Mode or Context Mode. I also use the Growl notifications, just in case.

What this also gives me is a way to see the "landscape" of my Ticklers, by zeroing in on either the context or the SAL. Not essential but nice to have.

That's what works for me. It may not suit everyone, but I thought I'd share.
 
Thanks for the tip, whpalmer4. I will give that a try.

This is a great perspective, but I have one problem.
Sometimes I use a start date for an entire project, not just a single action, because I've already analyzed that project and estabilished every next actions, so I just want this project "pop up" at a specific day, just like in a tickler.

But this perspective doesn't show me actions for projects that have any start date set, and the only way I've found is to set the start date on the first action instead of the project itself. Not a so bad solution, but I would like to know if any other has the same problem and what solution has adopted.

Franchesco, one of the changes we're making in the next release of the Mac app is to enable Projects to appear in context mode. Previously, they wouldn't show up there.

You may want to try your perspective in our most recent Sneaky Peek build; I believe it does what you want. You can grab it from this page.

If your context still isn't showing you the items you need to see, let us know and we'll be happy to help.

I tried the sneaky peeky but I still cannot see the pending project in the perspective. Should I report it as a bug?

D'oh! That's what I get for posting on the basis of intended behavior instead of observed behavior. :-)

I've reproduced exactly the behavior you mention and filed it as a bug.

Don't worry, I will wait :-)

did this get broken in the latest sneaky peek ? I choose " view in context mode" from the menu and nothing happens ?

It looks like "View in context mode" works when you select a project in the outline pane, but selecting it in the sidebar just gets you a beep. We probably need to support selecting the project in either pane - written up as a bug.

If that doesn't match up with what you're seeing, email the support ninjas and we'll be happy to investigate.
