A new version of FreeplaneGTD is released, with a structured archiving support and a more detailed template.
After a while GTD task lists can be cumbersome to maintain. The completed tasks clutter the map, and moving them for review without their respective projects looses the project context.
The new feature of the plugin targets this problem. The new actions move all the completed tasks in the selected branch to the review and archive folders respectively, while maintaining the original project structure.
The action “Move completed to review” will move the completed tasks to the “Review” folder in the root of the mindmap, while the “Move completed to archive” will move them to the “Archive” folder. The folder names are locale specific, and only the English and Hungarian translations are available at the moment. The actions also have associated default hotkeys, F5 for review and F6 for archive.
The actions only create the relevant project folders, and ignore the intermediary non-project nodes. As you can see on the image in the example the plain text node between “Project 1” and “Project 1.2” is not copied.
The empty projects are also removed automatically. If the same project structure is also found under different nodes, they will be merged. For example if you have a Meetings and Projects related nodes on the root of the same map, with similar project structure underneath, the relevant tasks will be merged in the archive. This is works similar to grouping found on the action lists.
The GTD template was also updated to include more information for beginners. The text is collapsed originally and only shows once you hover over the icons.
