In life generally everyone tends to make lists whether handwritten lists or spreadsheets and what we’re trying to do with to do list software is enable you to structure these lists in such a way that they become second nature to add items and categorize and prioritize them automatically so that you have a daily schedule of tasks that need completion without having to scroll through your writings or spreadsheets trying to mentally prioritize what to do next.
The database structure of Efficient To Do List software is optimized to group tasks either by their type or by their priority and to set timescales on each task so that a quick glance at the daily list of tasks enables you to plan your time and see exactly what needs doing and when. Some people will want to use portable versions of the software whilst others will prefer desktops or laptops to order their lives. Because the tasks planer always be based on a relational database that can cross-reference the tasks either by date or group, the simple entry of an item is immediately categorized, grouped and sorted by date.
So let’s take a closer look at what options you have got when setting up your data. The first thing to set up is all the various categories of tasks that you do and to subcategories and groupings so that you create child-parent structures. For example you could have a category broadly described as ‘buy’ and underneath that some subcategories called ‘stationery’, ‘office equipment’, ‘office consumables’, ‘Training books and manuals’, ‘advertising’, ‘service contracts’ etc. Then further sub-headings. So under Office consumables you might have ‘Printer ink’, ‘Printer Paper’ and under ‘Stationery’ the groupings might be Paper, Sticky notes etc. What this means is that you only need to enter an item once under a specific heading and the software will sort and display it grouped with its other relatives. This means that on a specific day the list will display as the top priority ‘Buy’ and underneath that ‘Office consumables and underneath that ‘Buy printer ink’ with a date that this has to be done buy. This means you can minimize the number of phone calls to the supplier and buy everything you need at the same time because it’s all listed out for you in the software.
