I’m still playing around with how best to implement tags but one thing I am finding really useful is a simple ‘next’ tag for the next action item in each project. I then have a custom perspective that just shows ‘next’ tags separated by project so I can quickly scan through them and decide on what to focus on.
What I’ve found though is that I’m completing a task with the ‘next’ tag and forgetting to go into that project and do a mini review to tag the next item with ‘next’. That then leads to several projects dropping off my ‘next’ perspective and I have to go though all projects to check they have an item with the ‘next’ tag.
What I would love is a script that checks a project and if it does not contain a single items with the ‘next’ tag, then create an task called something like ‘Decide Next Action’ and allocate that task with the ‘next’ tag
That way I would be able to still see all the projects without next actions defined within my custom perspective.
Any help would be appreciated - The only apple scripts I use are ones other people have created so I’m very much a novice but willing to learn if this seems do-able and I could get any pointers in the right direction!
