Productivity: Todist Sidebar

In a recent post I talked about Todoist, a hierarchical todo program that has a simple yet effective interface for creating layers of todo items.  Recently another milestone was passed for todoist: the addition of a firefox sidebar.

Context is a Beautiful Thing

One of the great things about the side bar is that it can be brought up in the context of another site.  As a web developer I can put the site I’m working on in a tab, and I can bring up the todoist sidebar right next to it (see above).  This helps me keep the tasks I am working on in context of site.  Great feature!

Bookmark Integration

The Todoist Sidebar knows what tab you are on.  So it’s author has included a new button:

Clicking the "Add link" button will create a new todo item with that link.  Again, as a web developer this is a great addition.  I can use it to catalog pages I need to work on in a given project (For example: to document bugs as I find them)

Gmail Integration

Integration with Gmail is always a winning factor in my book.  The todoist side bar “automagically” knows when you have an email open your selected tab.  The button changes from “Add link” to “Add email”

Clicking the "Add email" adds a “Gmail” link as a new todo item, giving you a direct link to the email open in your Firefox tab.  Again, as a web developer a lot of my project communication comes through email.  Using todoist I can quickly translate that email into a todo item in my project.
