Followup action items

jjcardil says:
Hi,
One of the challenges I face with my To Do lists are followup actions. I don't like adding followup actions to my lists as most followups are similar or the same as the original task that I think I completed. I also don't like keeping an item on the list until the followup is done. Both approaches seem to just "clog" up my lists.

I found the perfect solution, a Followup smart list. I created a smart list that is generated if the action contains the word followup. Now when I complete a task that requires followup I add a task with the first work being Followup and it automatically goes on my Followup smart list. Every few days I scan the Followup list and take action on the ones that have been sitting too long.

Works great for me!

Hi jjcardil,

Great tip! Bob's going to start using this for everything he needs to follow up. :)

Quick question on this, would you mean adding a new task or adding a sub-task with follow up, or differently: adding follow up to the title?
