Tuesday Tip: Make a sophisticated tickler file with scripts

Many people who are using David Allen’s Getting Things Done methodology are also using a “tickler file”. It consists of 43 folders, one for each month of the year and 31 for the days of the month, in which you keep documents that become relevant at a certain time. DEVONthink Pro already comes with some basic smart templates for this. Forum user Sampsa went a lot further and created a whole series of scripts that create the necessary group structure and even manage it. Documents previously filed for today are automatically moved into the Inbox by a script attached to an iCal alarm. Isn’t that cool?
