That sounds very similar to what I’m doing! I’m finding it a great way to work. I neglected to mention that I’m using the repeat function as well.
Great minds think alike. 😉
Are you manually inputting the first action and then ticking the “repeat every” box?
I’ve grow to really like this way of working, and now I’ve got so many tasks broken down into Pomodoros I’m finding it cumbersome to input the repeating task.
You could use Shortcuts (iOS/iPadOS), Keyboard Maestro (Mac) and/or use Drafts (Mac/iOS/iPadOS) to prompt you for the name of the action, then use TaskPaper to create a new action that repeats.
For example if you were to paste this TaskPaper code into OmniFocus it would create an action called “Read Getting Things Done” that repeats daily based on the item’s completion.
- Read Getting Things Done @repeat-method(start-after-completion) @repeat-rule(FREQ=DAILY)
You could use other metadata to further define the action, including
@tags to specify tag(s).
I was hoping that there might be a script available that would let me use a hotkey to assign a task a child with the text:
“do 1 Pomodoro of <PARENT_TASK>” with the repeat setting enabled.`
This should be possible using scripting, but I don’t know of an existing script that provides this functionality.
