Streaks - manage tasks and their streaks

Recommended Posts






Streaks is a task list workflow for maintaining task streaks. A streak is the number of days a task has been active. 




It can be used as todo list that helps you to maintain a desired habit, or to keep track of outstanding ideas.

The keyword to activate the workflow is streaks. Once activated, you will be show your Today List - this is a set of tasks that are active for today.




Type streaks into Alfred to activate the workflow.

You will be presented with the Today List.

The general format of a task is 'task name #tags @schedule' where tags and schedule are optional.

You can type in text in the Today List, which allows you to create new tasks or search for existing ones.


You can also modify existing tasks by selecting them from the Today List view.



Example use cases

Tracking Orders

I just ordered a keyboard from Amazon, and I add in a task.


keyboard #orders #pending


This is an example of a daily task whose streak is automatically incremented every day. 

Such tasks will always appear in your Today List

Gym Days

I decided to start going to the gym on specific days of the week.


go to gym @tu,th,sa


This is an example of a tracked task that requires you to confirm the task every scheduled day. In this example, go to gym will appear in your Today List every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.


Streaks for scheduled tasks will only be incremented when you confirm them.

If you missed to confirm a scheduled task, you can restart the streak by resetting it.
