I'm scheduling items according to instructions here: https://orgmode.org/manual/Inserting-deadline_002fschedule.html#Inserting-deadline_002fschedule
I have pain in my hands that is exacerbated especially by using pointing devices such as a mouse or track pad. I can still tolerate typing pretty well. So far, Org-mode is the least mouse intensive organization tool I've found.
It looks like scheduling will require some mouse or track pad use. (ouch!) It looks like there isn't any way to specify a date in the future (after entering C-c C-s) other than with a pointing device or touch screen. I could make the touch screen work, but I'd prefer to keep my hands on the key board.
