The little reference guide to Nozbe
When I first started using Nozbe I always imagined that a small reference to Nozbe’s powerful # syntax, markdown and keyboard shortcuts would be useful, 3 years later I still thought it would be! So I took a break from writing “the little book of Nozbe” and made a “little reference guide to Nozbe”.
Hopefully if you’re a new or more forgetful user of Nozbe (like me!) it will help you get the most out of Nozbe.
A PDF version that makes a great printout can be downloaded for free from productivewizard.com.
Use # in emails & quick task entry:
#priority — make the task a next action
#project_name — assign the task to an existing project
#context_name — assign the task an existing context
#text_date — assign the task a due day:
- #today or #monday or #tuesday
- #january or #february or #march
- #april 15 13:00 or #may 18 09:00
- #every day, week, month, year
- #every 2 weeks, 3 weeks, 4 weeks
- #every 2 months, 3 months, 4 month
- #every weekday, half year
- #5 min #15 min #30 min #45 min
- #1h #1.5h #2h #2.5h #3h
- #4h #5h #6h #7h #8h
Send one task to Nozbe:
- make the subject the task name and
- the email body becomes a comment
Send multiple tasks:
- email subject — ignore
email body — start each line “. (space)”
. this is task 1
this is a comment for task 1
. this is task 2
this is a comment for task 2
Email to an existing task:
- append the email subject with #task: task_name
- ignore everything else: “- -” a double dash stops Nozbe from parsing any more of your email
. buy some milk #household #errands #saturday #15 min
Use markdown in your comments.
# — Header 1
## — Header 2
### — Header 3
* Item 1
* Item 2
* Item 3
Use in Nozbe Desktop and web application.
a — add new task
i — inbox
n — next actions
c — calendar
s — start sync
t — quick add task
