This post was written before 2007. As a result, there may be crude language and poor grammar. I was young and fairly immature. To be fair, I still kind of am, but I try not to let that shine through on here anymore. Either way, I apologize for the poorly written thoughts and non-G rated language.
After reading about Gradefix over at College V2, I started thinking about the best way for me to keep track of my assignments. I know a month into the semester, I probably should have thought about it already, but the app I was using for my Treo wasn’t working out. I figure that the best way to keep track of my assignments is to keep them with my tasks at Remember the Milk.
I found out about Remember the Milk via this post on LifeHacker, and have been using it ever since. The application itself is great, having a number of features that I wanted to incorporate into a Tasks App I was developing. There is TXT MSG reminders, the ability to email yourself tasks, notes, tags and even a mobile site, which is great because I can access it with ease on my Treo.
One featured I haven’t really utilized until now is the ability to add lists. So to keep track of my assignments, I added a list for each class, as well as a general school list (which was actually already there). I also tag each assignment with school, and whatever type of assignment it is (IE- test, report, etc.). What I am left with is this:
I have also set up Remember the Milk to email and IM me reminders 1 day before the tasks is due, and you can easily make it Nag You. One feature I would like to see added is a calendar view of your tasks/assignments. I would also like to have a comprehensive review of Remember the Milk, which I will probably make into a mini series. Later!
PS- Since I haven’t found a way to view all of your tasks at once, I came up with a nice ‘hack’ to do so- I simply add the tag ‘all’ to all of my tasks.
