I'm > not sure how that would work. ;) No, I want to customize the daily agenda view so that it shows my everything it does already, plus my STARTED todos. Or, make a custom agenda which does that. I don't have a problem with using custom agenda views, but the only ones I've been able to create are just lists of todos, with no diary grid, etc. > > Or is it rather that the keybinding C-c a a is "hardwired" -- i.e., > you'd like a custom agenda view mapped to that keybinding? > > Here are two solutions: > > 1.

I'll try this to see if it suits, but I can see straight away that the clutter might be too much. That's the whole problem with custom agenda views, that I end up with too many items when all I want to see in the normal course of the day is the diary grid and the dated and started tasks. > > A more complex option: If you want to be able to filter for your STARTED > todos you could set org-todo-state-tag-triggers to tag each of your > items with a custom tag, e.g., STARTED, whenever you switch to the > STARTED todo state.

Maybe I'll have to manually schedule anything I mark as STARTED. It's the extra step which is going to get forgotten unfortunately. > > Best, > Matt > Thanks for your suggestions! Paul
