This idea I came up with today when working on my weekly schedules. I have come to realized one of the most important aspect of the schedule process is the weekly overview of works that I could get from my notebook.
Currently the major calendar/GTD software doesnot seems to have such functionality. They are either very refined but have platform constraints or have an weekly overview but does not show achievement. (I might include some insight on them in this post later) Therefore, I would like to build a simple web app that has the weekly overview functionality.
The key concept is to separate scheduled events and Todos/Dues. Also, provide an overview on what has been done in a week and what is the outlook of the coming week. There should be a weekly review that encourages people to continue using the software but also give improvement in people’s productivity(Learning curves for some GTD is too steep for many).
From this week, I’ll try out some popular schedule system and see how well they can be integrated into my daily study/work process.

It turns out to me that a software call “notion” is very nice a software for document editing. It involves many templates and plugins that enriches the user experiences. For example, the reminder functionality will send emails to you inbox to alert you your appointment is coming up. Also, the layout of the document could be changed by simple drag and drop.
I decided to use notion for one week as my primary weekly planning software. I would write a more comprehensive review on it this weekend. The primary objective is to make sure how good is my competitor, so I could build my weekly planning apps in a way that have some advantage toward it.
And here is a link to Notion.
