1 Overview

The Todo mode package provides facilities for making and maintaining todo lists. A todo list is a list of todo items—things to do (in the widest sense)—arranged in order of priority, with the highest priority item at the top of the list and the lowest priority item at the bottom.

This manual describes the Todo mode user interface. Todo mode comprises a large number of commands and user options for creating, displaying, navigating and editing todo lists, distributed across five major modes. The principle major mode is Todo mode; the other four (Todo Edit mode, Todo Archive mode, Todo Categories mode, and Todo Filtered Items mode) are subsidiary to and accessible from Todo mode.

This version of Todo mode greatly expands on, and in significant ways differs from, the original version; for details and consequences of the most important differences, Legacy Todo Mode Files.
