ConceptDraw Lab has produced a little Dashboard widget that “partially implements Getting Things Done” by allowing for the quick creation of iCal to-dos without the need to open iCal.
It works by presenting each calendar in iCal as an Inbox, which can be selected from a drop-down menu at the top of the widget.
Entering text then creates to-dos attached to the selected calendar.
In the Next Events view, it displays all events scheduled for today.
Despite my normal charitable outlook, I struggled to see how this would gain a place in someone’s GTD toolbox.
For power and ease of use Event Maker is hard to beat.
Perhaps I am becoming a “Productivity snob”. It’s not always about power. For some people this might be just the ticket and serve as an excellent bucket for collecting things to do.
GTD widget for iCal is freeware and available from the developer’s web site .
