In a message on the GTD-MindManager Yahoo group, Juan asked about ways of getting tasks into MindManager from his new PDA. I thought it might be useful to cross-post a reply here for posterity:
Here are four options for getting items into your maps from a mobile device.
- Use bitbucket.org to mail yourself task from the PDA and then pull
the tasks in via an RSS map part (see A MindManager-Based RSS News Reader.
- Take that approach one step farther, and call in your tasks verbally
to Jott with the phone rather than typing them in. This is handy for
use when driving (see GTD Phone Home. ActivityDaughter also uses it to remind Dad of things like the need to get started on her upcoming Volcano project.
- If the phone's task list is Outlook synced, you can pull the Outlook tasks into MindManager using OutLinker.
- If you capture the tasks in a note, you can paste the list into the
MindReader GyroQ "q" tag, and it will process and parse each line separately into
separate tasks. You don't need to paste them 1 by 1. See Feed your todo list into MindReader.
I personally tend to just carry two thin Moleskine notebooks (one work/one personal) in my pocket and log things there for later manual transfer with GyroQ.
