I'm still trying different ways to use this app. I really like it, but have a couple questions in regard to usage options.
I have a folder called "Clients" which has lists of what I do: audio, consultation, graphics, and websites.
Then I also have a folder called My projects with lists like website, ideas, research, etc.
My personal folder has bills due, appointments, household, errands, [things I need to] watch, read, correspondence, write.
It seems contexts could be @phone, @car, @computer as it would be nice to see what I can group together while in that location.
The reason I was using lists was because I could move a task (from inbox) to a list with the "F" key, like "put it away where it belongs". This has brought up my questions:
I know THL is flexible so you can do whatever you want, but I'm wondering whether to use tags instead of lists and use smart folders to collect them. Right now, when I am in folder view, there are the same things in tag view. It doesn't seem like I need this overlap.
With that said, I also get emails from clients asking for things to be done, and I make it a to do which imports into THL. Fine. I'd really like to also tag it according to client name. Where I get baffled is whether to tag it according to client or according to website, graphics, etc. or have both tags?
Part of the dilemma is if I have to manually put a task into a list, then why do I need tags?
Do appointments that I entered in iCal import into THL or do they have to be To Do's (from iCal)? Or should I just enter them in THL instead?
So, these are some questions in my head. Any suggestions for my above scenario, and how you are handling it? Thanks.
