I’m trying to figure OF out and could use some assistance.
How can I add tasks from calendar events that show up in Forecast?
Say, for one example, that I have our waste pickup schedule in my calendar. Mixed waste once a week, glass every other week, garden waste on a different day once a week, paper once a month; not always falling on the same days each month because of holidays… So this info is in my calendar, but I need OF to remind me of it and I need it to be an actionable task. That is, of course, the point of having OF. I most certainly don’t want to be manually coping events from my calendar that should be actionable. Obviously, most calendar events aren’t actionable, but some are.
But I feel that OF is HUGELY lacking in this kind of integration and I fear it’s impossible. There’s no timeline views or even proper calendar views to see how projects stretch across months. There’s only a list view in Forecast as far as I can tell. Is this hiding somewhere?
So if none of this can be done, then how can I MANUALLY (crappy) input tasks that repeat in such unexpected dates. Please tell me I don’t need to input them one at a time. There’s hundreds across the year with our trash alone.
Thanks y’all. I really want to like OF but I keep hitting brick walls. For GTD purists, I get your point, but then OF is also HUGELY overpriced. Please prove me wrong and make me apologize.
Have a good one everyone!
