One interesting feature in the Windows App to enable context based task selection is the context
calendar view. It looks like a weekly view from MS Outlook and it enables you to enter the
days/times for each context.
My Life Organized Configuring contexts
So, you can highlight 8am to 5pm for the @Work context, 6pm to 7am for the @Home context.
This enables MLO to determine, given the current time, which tasks to display as it already knows
which context you should be in. When testing this I inadvertently highlighted the wrong indicated
the wrong times I would be available by assuming that you indicated the time you were free as
opposed to not free. The developers even foreseen my silliness and added an inverse button to
immediately reverse the section. I think just another example of their attention to detail with this
Tasks can also be flagged as folders, projects or even goals. This enables the filtering options for
those categories. For example, to view the next task for each project or to hide tasks labelled as a
folder from view. This is simple done via a tick box for the task.
The search function is also excellent. It is accessible from the home screen. Simply start typing
and all matching tasks will be listed. I find it to be fast and fluid.
Some other basic, but important features are also in there. Tasks can be dragged and dropped for
quicker manipulation and also tasks can be archived enabling a smaller data file to be in active
I also need to give a special mention to the parsing function on the quick entry window. In addition
to standard task entry using the main window, a small window can be opened from the Windows
task bar allowing for quick task entry into an Inbox (or any other folder!).
Rapid task entry
This enables ad-hoc tasks to be quickly entered into the system without opening the program
window and interrupting the current, on-going work. So, the point of it is understandable but the
execution is even better. MLO will essentially read your task entry and use it to populate the task
information. So, if I write "MLO - Publish this article tomorrow", MLO will understand the task to be
"MLO - Publish this article", and enter tomorrow as the due date under the task information as
shown below. It can understand times, contexts and other task information and even set
reminders! When exercised, this can streamline the task entry process and make the overall
usage of the program more efficient. My only wish for this would be an option to keep the dialog
box on top of other windows to allow rapid task entry at any time, thereby saving a couple of
clicks every time.
