There are 4 key components here:
- Task scoring system
- New task score starts with 1
- Important + 0.6
- Urgent + 3
- 15 min + 2
- 30 min + 1
- 60 min + 0.5
- 90 min + 0.5
- Today + 10
- Tomorrow + 2
Task score accumulation
- Urgent 11 * number of days
- 15 minutes 8 * number of days
- marked important 6 * number of days
- 30 minutes 5 * number of days
- 60 minutes 3 * number of days
- no properties * 1.5
- weighted by diving resulting number by 4 to avoid overblowing importance of this metric
Task score accumulation is still something that requires some play around with numbers but I’m pretty happy with the result at the moment. I would say task score accumulation is actually the most important feature for me as it really helps to avoid creating infinite tasks lists, old tasks will always pop up on top of the list and will require to be dealt with.
Would love to get some feedback on the app if you have found it useful.
I’ll spawn off some feature requests from this app as formulas got quite complex at the end and cumbersome to edit.
