Get Productive with a Tickler File

September 13, 2011 — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

If you are using Getting Things Done (GTD) you know the concept of a “tickler file”: folders for all twelve months with sub-folders for each day of the month (also known as “43 folders”). You place documents into the sub-folder of the day on which you will need the document. If you want to postpone the task you move the document forward to another day.

Use the Andreas Zeitler’s tickler file template to quickly insert a fully equipped ticker file group into your database including a script for quickly adding reminders to Calnder derived from the group name.

You install the template from Data > New from Template > More Templates.

Thank you, Andreas, for this template.
