Since early releases of ClearContext, we’ve always had a significant group of passionate users who are also fans of productivity systems like Getting Things Done and Total Workday Control. We’ve had a special build customized for our TWC users for a while. We’re now pleased to announce the release of ClearContext Pro v5.4, which includes some much-requested features to better support our GTD users as well.
GTD users and other users who organize their tasks using special Outlook categories can download a GTD setup guide for ClearContext with detailed setup instructions. Here’s a quick overview of some key features to help GTD users stay organized with ClearContext:
- Context Categories – You can now manage your tasks based on either categories or projects. Select a category view on the ClearContext Summary Dashboard to display a count of tasks and appointments by context category in the dashboard, highlighting due and overdue categories. Context categories are denoted by a special character in front of the category name (i.e. @Calls, !Next, *Phone).
- Category Dashboards – Double-click a context category on the Dashboard to open it in the Detail tab (formerly the Project tab). This will show all tasks and appointments with the assigned category. Add new tasks to the category using the Add Task function on the detail dashboard and ClearContext will automatically append the current context category to the task.
- Next Actions - Right click tasks in the Dashboard or Organizer to mark them as Next Actions. A small arrow will appear next to those items you have identified as Next and a category of !Next will be assigned to the task. Use the Next Action filter on your task list in the Dashboard to see only those tasks marked !Next.
More details on these and other GTD-related features can be found in the GTD setup guide.
The v5.4 upgrade is complimentary for registered v5 customers, registered v5-TWC users and active Connect members. Download here.
