I maintain my primary TODO list as an org file with top-level headings like * This Week, * Delegated, * Scheduled, * Deferred, etc. These all contain TODOs or potential TODOs. Anything I intend to work on near term I refile into * This Week and that's then the primary heading that I'm burning down throughout my day. I do weekly reflection/projections and 6 week reflection/projections. When I do a weekly reflection I go through another heading * Done to remind myself what I accomplished in the past week. When I do a 6 week reflection/projection I review the Done heading one more time and then I refile all the entries currently there into an * Archive heading. Then every now and then I actually archive entries in Archive into an *.org_archive file. * Done and * Archive are both tagged with ARCHIVE. In an effort to start automating some of this effort I wrote the following elisp to refile all the Level 2 entries to the Done heading: (defun timvisher-org-refile-done-entry-position () (save-excursion (goto-char (point-min)) (re-search-forward "^\\* Done"))) (defun timvisher-org-refile-done-entry () (org-refile nil (current-buffer) (list "* Done" (buffer-file-name) nil (timvisher-org-refile-done-entry-position)))) (defun timvisher-org-refile-done-entries () (interactive) (length (org-map-entries #'timvisher-org-refile-done-entry "LEVEL=2/+DONE|+CANCELLED" nil 'archive))) I'm doing Level 2 only because for long running projects I tend to have a single Level 2 heading with many subheadings representing the project's breakdown and I don't want them to be refiled out of the project. Opportunities for improvement would be: 1. Is there a better way to find the * Done entry than searching for it every time? 2. Am I using org-refile correctly there? It's functional but it also seems needlessly complicated. Hope this finds you all well. :) -- In Christ, Timmy V. https://blog.twonegatives.com http://five.sentenc.es [-- Attachment #2: Type: text/html, Size: 4030 bytes --]
