branch: master

Added the ability to use priority 1 as the next action.

Also removed sorting by date and priority for determining next action -
it is not helpful or expected.

NextAction

A more GTD-like workflow for Todoist. Uses the REST API to add and remove a @next_action label from tasks.

This program looks at every list in your Todoist account. Any list that ends with -- or = is treated specially, and processed by NextAction.

Note that NextAction requires Todoist Premium to function properly, as labels are a premium feature.

Activating NextAction

Sequential list processing

If a list ends with --, the top level of tasks will be treated as a priority queue and the most important will be labeled @next_action. Importance is determined by:

  1. Priority
  2. Due date
  3. Order in the list

@next_action waterfalls into indented regions. If the top level task that is selected to receive the @next_action label has subtasks, the same algorithm is used. The @next_action label is only applied to one task.

Parallel list processing

If a list name ends with =, the top level of tasks will be treated as parallel @next_actions. The waterfall processing will be applied the same way as sequential lists - every parent task will be treated as sequential. This can be overridden by appending = to the name of the parent task.
