...How to use Getting Things GNOME! to get things done

Task editor syntax

In the task editor, a word beginning with @ is automatically interpreted as a tag. A line which begins with a - creates a subtask.

The quickadd entry

The quickadd entry is the quickest way to create a new task. You can show or hide it in the View menu.

For adding a task you just have to type its title in the entry and press return. The task will be created and selected in the task browser. If a tag is selected in the tag panel, this tag is applied to the task you create.

You can also create a task with attributes like tags, due date or defer date in the quickadd entry. For that the syntax is :

  • tags:tag1,tag2,tag3 : This way you can apply as many tags as you wish using comma as separator

  • due:date or defer:date : This way you can apply a due date or a defer date. date can be yyyy-mm-dd (for exemple 2009-04-01) or yyyymmdd (20090401) or mmdd (0401, in this case the year is implicitly the current one) or today or tomorrow or a weekday name (due:monday means due next Monday)

Attributes which are added in this way apply but do not appear in the title.

If a word begins with @, it is interpreted as a tag.

Attributes are translated you can use them in your language. English translation still available in all languages.
