Tips & Tricks Tuesday: Tagging with required resources

Tuesday, June 23, 2009 by Emily Boyd

How do you know which tasks can be completed with the resources you have on hand? RTM user marjancas shares this handy tip:

Bob requires a phone for this task

I use tags and smart lists to generate task lists that require resources such as my phone and my computer (with or without internet access).

For example, every task that requires me to call someone has a 'phone' tag and appears in a 'Phone' smart list. Then, when I know I am going to be waiting somewhere for an undefined amount of time, such as at the DMV to get my license renewed, I print out the 'Phone' task list and start checking off those tasks as I wait. Tasks that require my computer but not internet access appear in an 'Offline Computer' smart list and can be completed on the airplane. You get the idea!
