Org mode is wonderful for managing todo lists. Usually to add a task, I would run
org-capture using the default
C-c c and then select my todo template by hitting
t. I do this so often that I wanted a shorter shortcut, so I defined a function to call
org-capture with the specific template I wanted and bound this to a simple shortcut (I used
C-9 after removing numeric prefixes):
;; function to capture a todo (defun bjm/org-capture-todo () (interactive) "Capture a TODO item" (org-capture nil "t")) ;; bind (define-key global-map (kbd "C-9") 'bjm/org-capture-todo)
C-9 takes me straight to my todo capture template.
