Today we released a new view within GTDNext called "Today".
To use this feature, just drag items to the list. (a keyboard shortcut will be added soon). You can remove items from the today list by dragging towards the top of the list.
You will see a list of all items you plan to accomplish today. If you don't complete an item today, it will move to the "Past Day's Actions" group after mid-night (a refresh is required right now).
By turning on the completed items filter in the Today view, you can see what you have accomplished during the day.
The Today list solves a common problem where people often feel the next action list is too daunting. They want a smaller list of items to work on for the day. In the past, we have recommended people use the focus list for this purpose. While right now the two lists provide very similar functions the today view will soon become a better place to plan what you want to accomplish.
We will continue to add functionality to the today list that will differentiate it from the Focus list. (We may even retire the focus list someday.... we will see, based on your feedback)
So.. What would YOU like to see the today list do? We have a lot of great things planned for it, but I'm curious to hear how you see using it.
