There are several ways of reconstructing this affordance in ConnectedText. Here the first one, using attributes. ConnectedText allows you to assign attributes to text in different topics. Attributes look like this
[[Priority:=high]], [[Priority:=medium]], [[Priority:=low]]
[[What:=Task]], [[What:=Idea]], [[What:=Plan]]
and whatever else you want. I am sure you get the idea.
In each topic you want to appear in a topic used for scheduling, you might add:
It is easy to retrieve and summarize this information in another topic. Let's call it "Schedule" and enter this:
The result will be this, provided you have created the appropriate topics or items:
Obviously, it is better to create a template for items that are to be used in a schedule rather than adding the details "by hand." Luckily, ConnectedText has templates.
This is not the only way to achieve Agenda-like scheduling. Nor is it perhaps the best way to achieve it. In this method, items are identical to topics. There is a way to slice and dice the information even further and look at parts of topics. We will take a look at that approach in a future post.
