Obsidian Task Management (several posts)

my notes ( ? )

First of 3 posts on managing tasks with Obsidian, which I need to invest in as I'm creating tasks as I write my notes and then never looking for them again. This post starts with installing Calendar and Obsidian Tasks plugins.

As always, to follow this advice I then needed to set up another plugin. Journaling Using Daily Questions in Obsidian helped me get my Templates organised (if not defined) and introduced me to Tracker, which:

  • parses the data he adds to each Daily Note in response to the questions he puts there via his daily note template.
  • displays it in a Daily Questions page using line charts

Back to Tasks. I will not for the moment use the global task filter.

Onto thesecond post, on queries, which shows how the Daily Note template can include a query of all tasks due that day, via the use of the date token (" due on {{date:YYYY-MM-DD}} "). Useful!

But how to include in the daily and/or weekly reviews that I've caught all tasks I've added that day/week? In post 3 (Obsidian Task Management Review) we meet the Review plugin, which "allows you to add the current note to a future note ... to make sure you review it again on that date. This can be useful for project review (e.g., Getting Things Done), as a tickler file... spaced repetition, and to remind you of past failures or that embarrassing thing you did yesterday."

However, while useful, this doesn't do it for me: it allows you to manually flag a note to be reviewed on a day in the future, and adds a link to that day's daily note to remind me. But what I want is to ensure all tasks are being tracked... or shouldn't be.
