Quick Add To-Do using natural language processing (NLP) - September 5, 2023

Ever wanted to add a new to-do to Things with plain, natural text? Well, it's possible now with the new Quick Add To-Do command. Just type in your to-do text, maybe set some notes and checklist items and you're good to go. Under the hood, it'll analyze and process your text to extract these parameters:

  • The title
  • The start date
  • The project or area the to-do belongs to
  • The heading within a project to add to.
  • The deadline
  • The different tags
  • If it's completed or canceled Here are some examples:
  • Book flights today in my Trips list
  • Add milk to my groceries list for tomorrow with Errand tag
  • Respond to mails
  • Buy a new car by the end of the year
  • Collect dry cleaning this evening at 6PM
  • Fix landing page this friday in bugs heading of Revamp Homepage project
  • Add a completed task called “Ship feature” to my Work list
  • Respond to mails by this week-end

Big update - August 11, 2023

A big update has been released for the Things extension. Here's what's new:

New actions

You now have additional actions for your to-dos:

  • Schedule
  • Move to a project/area
  • Edit the title or notes
  • Add a tag
  • Set a deadline
  • Copy the URL as a formatted link
  • Copy the title
  • Copy the notes But that's not all. There are also two new actions powered by AI to assist you in completing your to-dos:
  • Generate checklist with AI to generate a checklist based on the to-do's title and notes
  • Make To-Do Actionable with AI to make a to-do's title more actionable.

Note: Some of these actions require an authentication token for security reasons. Please refer to the instructions in the README.md file to set it up.

New command: Add New Project

You can now create new Things projects directly from Raycast. Similar to to-dos, you can add project notes, tags, schedule it, assign it to an area, set a deadline, and add some to-dos. Need inspiration or a little boost to kickstart a project? Use the "Generate To-Dos with AI" action to let the AI fill out the to-dos for you.

Menu bar improvements

The menu bar command also has its own set of imrpovements. Now you can perform more actions directly from the menu bar:

  • Schedule a to-do
  • Move a to-do to a project/area
  • Complete any to-do The menu bar also includes shortcuts to different lists in Things for quicker access (Today, Upcoming, Projects & Areas, Logbook, etc.). If you prefer a simple, clean list, note that you can disable this feature and keep only your to-do list for today visible.
