Scheduled and due dates are two different things in Get It Done.
Scheduled (for review)
Think of Scheduled as postponing or “I want to review this task at a later date but get it out of my way for now”. When you schedule a task, it will remain in the Scheduled folder until the date you’ve specified. On that date, it will be moved into your Today folder. This is a great way to declutter your Today folder of tasks you don’t want to do today but need to do it the next day or a specific day. To schedule a task for future review:
- Drag the task into the Scheduled category on the left side of your screen.
- Choose the date from the calendar pop up.
This task will be scheduled to show up in your Today folder on that date.
Due dates are a way for you to visually see how long you have until the task is due. To set a due date:
- Open the task
- Click on the Due field.
- Choose the date from the calendar pop up
After you set the due date, you should see the info in the task list.
