Here’s the way I’ve configured my Waiting perspective. The key is to switch to the Contexts perspective, select your “Waiting” context from the sidebar and then click “Add Current Sidebar Selection” under Sidebar Selection to add this selection to your Waiting perspective.
Instead of making a new thread, I thought I might continue this one. I made a Waiting Perspective, but there is one very annoying problem with it. If no actions have the Waiting context, all actions, regardless of what context they have, show up in the perspective. Is this a bug, or is there a workaround? Any ideas?
EDIT: Nevermind, I resolved it, made a dumb mistake: “Filter context: Active”
Sorry to bump - I have one question which is that when I do this (for a ‘morning coffee’ perspective), it includes items with no context. Is there a way to stop ‘no context’ from appearing in the list?
I did, I promise - I think the thing that has thrown me is that it doesn’t act as a filter, but as a pre-selection - so all the active contexts are still shown, just de-selected. Can live with that, though it feels neater to be able to filter on specific contexts rather than just have them all shown and some selected.
Ah, sorry, I didn’t realize you where talking about the contexts being shown instead of tasks in those contexts. My apologies!
No, right now, there is nothing you can do to hide all other contexts. Maybe one thing you could try is changing the “Filter contexts” setting in your perspective to “On Hold”? That way, at least all the active contexts are hidden, but you can’t hide the ‘No Context’ that way…
This post is a THANK YOU!!! for the person who came up with the idea of a “waiting” context and perspective. I don’t remember if I learned about it from this thread, but it was definitely from this forum. Every time I use it, I am so grateful!!
