perhaps not elegant but i do it one of 2 ways. I either rewrite by hand a quick note with the task on my notebook and drop the page into my paper inbox or I email the text to myself for processing when I do e-mail.I'm wondering if anyone has developed an elegant way/practice of processing text messages?
I'm wondering if anyone has developed an elegant way/practice of processing text messages? More and more I find texts to be a collection point and I have not developed a habit of getting them into my system with any regularity.
I have been thinking about text messages lately, and came across this thread.
Now, we discuss how we get text messages into our GTD systems, and myself, I either jot it into Asana or forward the message either directly or via Braintoss.
However, how to handle the stuff you want to keep for reference (fun, memories, etc)?
I could always store these items some where else, but at the same time I think that SMS/is similar to email in the way that David suggests that it's best to deal with the material in it's own ecosystem. This is also true for stuff that you'd want to be able to refer to, forward, share, etc.
Now, if I had the opportunity to create folders, I would be fine - but I have yet not found an app that will let me do this (I'm on Android).
And as long as folders is not an option, I end up with keeping it all in my inbox, so to speak.
Not that stuff tends to fall through the cracks as I process actionable items and delete as much as I can - but I'm nowhere near an empty inbox...
I'd be happy to hear some thoughts about this!
Does anyone know of anything like this for iOS that can replace the native messaging app?One thing that has been a step forward for me recently has been switching to an SMS app that allows me to archive threads. The native Samsung Messages app did not have this function, but Google Messages does. Along with many other apps I'm sure.
So once I have replied to a message (and captured any actions or reference I need), I archive the thread. Have attached a screenshot of my currently empty Messages inbox. (I usually leave the thread with my partner in there for convenience, but I left it out of the screenshot for privacy)
On iOS 16, the Messages app now offers an "Unread" filter view. And the ability to mark a message as unread if needed.Does anyone know of anything like this for iOS that can replace the native messaging app?
Signal. It is available for iOS and lets you archive threads. I presume it can replace the native messaging app on iOS (it can on Android).Does anyone know of anything like this for iOS that can replace the native messaging app?
Thank you for this! Life changing. I'm not usually an early adopter of new os versions bit this aline had been worth the updateOn iOS 16, the Messages app now offers an "Unread" filter view. And the ability to mark a message as unread if needed.
Somewhat strangely I can only get this to work from Settings > Messages > "Filter Unknown Senders" = On
