Changes: Left Navi

Heads up for the next release: we’ve moved things around in the left navi a bit. It’s nothing radical, but might take a bit of getting used to for the old guard.

  • The filter-by-area menu has been pushed up to the global navi
  • Focus has been placed below the standard GTD lists
  • Projects has been renamed My Projects
  • We’ve visually delineated and grouped items more clearly

Impact to keyboard shortcuts: numbers 1 through 9 have been remapped.

Impact to area filtering: search results are now filtered to match only items within the selected area. Logbook too. Inbox and Trash are the only exceptions to the (filtering) rule. We think this makes sense. By definition, inbox = unprocessed items, so applying a filter to these items is presumptuous. And really, who needs multiple trash cans.

At a loss for words…

Take 2 – Phased Rollout

Here’s the revised rollout plan:

  • Push a few N2 builds – code cleanup / UI spruce up
  • Monitor how things go for awhile
  • Sunset N1 – migrating everyone over to N2
  • Make sure everyone was able to transition smoothly
  • Open Beta for N2 – no more invite queue, all new signups land in N2
  • Monitor how things go for awhile
  • Launch

We basically tried to do too much of this in one fell swoop last week and there were just too many dependencies.  Better to tackle in bite-sized chunks.

As these become ready they will be released:

  • Native iPhone app
  • Native Android app

Native mobile apps may be released before launch, or shortly thereafter.  Depends on how things play out.

I know people have been wondering what we’ve been doing…  Separating out the above steps required a bit of rework, but things have now been nicely decoupled (as they probably should have been all along, but you know, sometimes one can be optimistic to a fault).

Based on the feedback we’ve received, we’ve also decided to loosen up just a tad on the free plan restrictions, but more on that in a future post.

What is GTD®?

GTD® rests on the principle that a person needs to move tasks out of the mind by recording them externally. That way, the mind is freed from the job of remembering everything that needs to be done, and can concentrate on actually performing those tasks.
