Subject: Tips on maintaining history in Org Mode
Date: Thu, 25 Feb 2021 22:22:21 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <SJ0PR03MB5455949D9325AC0CF3FEC64F9B9D9@SJ0PR03MB5455.namprd03.prod.outlook.com> (raw)

There are many ways of maintaining history in a group of Org files:
1. Archive within a file
2. Archive to a separate (archive) file
3. Special TODO types for history
4. Special TAG types for history
5. etc.

My question is, if you have meetings/phone calls as TODOs, what is the
preferred way to handle when they move into history so that, *much*
later, you can easily produce a list of all of the meetings/phone calls
with dates and times of them?  The issue (I think) is, when you mark the
TODO as DONE, you lose the info of what the TODO was originally.
