I need to mark when I need to pay attention to a task in org-mode.
So far, I've been using
SCHEDULED for this. In this sense,
SCHEDULED may just mean "look at this on this date". This is my way of implementing a variation of of GTD. I know this may be abusing org-mode's
One issue I have is that the model of tasks overlaps two concepts:
Tasks that are indeed scheduled to be completed on a particular date.
Tasks that I just need to look at on a particular date/period.
I could circumvent this by adding a new TODO state
SCHEDULED. So far, instead, I've been using tags such as
This issue manifests when I plan tasks for future weeks: I can only plan them for a specific day (usually the first day of that week), making it look like Monday is going to be awfully busy.
What I really would like to do is to schedule a task for a week, or a month, or a year. I know I can add ranges, but that would make the task show up in red in the agenda if the start date is now past. It's also far too much work.
I want something like:
* A SCHEDULED: 2017
* A :PROPERTIES: ON_DATE_YEAR: 2017 :END:
Is any of this possible? How can I make it convenient to use?
EDIT (2017/07/09 11:15CET, due to comment received): I really need to schedule a task for a week/month/year. This is not something that, afaik, GTD suggests, but I work best this way.)
