Is there a way to embed/include/reference (I don't know the proper word in emacs-speek :)) to headings so that their contents show in a different place?
The idea is to reduce duplications and bookkeeping while maintaining different "views" into e.g. project tasks, potentially using shared files
I write a journal entry in
diary.org about a meeting and come up with
TODO headings and task lists:
* Diary ... ** 2019-07-24 Meeting recap I learned a lot of cool things. Bob was really nice. Alice nailed all the details. Wow. Such productivity. But we got new stuff to do! *** TODO Project X **** TODO Subtask Y - [ ] Task A - [ ] Task B
I can configure my agenda to see them.
In addition to showing the stuff in my agenda, I want to include the contents in my project list, e.g.
* Current client ** Current Milestone (Here comes not a copy, but a reference of the stuff from above:) *** TODO Project X **** TODO Subtask Y - [ ] Task A - [ ] Task B
I intend this to be a reference of the heading, so that changes in any of the two org files are reflected in the other.
(Of course I wouldn't want to leave tasks in the journal. The example is contrived. But what about sharing tasks with others in an org file in e.g. Dropbox, and having changes reflected in my own files?)
Is there a method that I fail to find, maybe because I use the wrong search terms? Or would I have to write a sync function myself?
