In the Date field when scheduling an activity, instead of typing in a date or using the lookup to bring up a calendar, type in 1D. Then, when you tab or click to the next field the date will be set for 1 day from today.
Do you want to schedule the activity 2 days from now? Just type in 2D; and for 3 days 3D.
D works for Days, W for Weeks, and M for Months. So to schedule something 2 months from now, just type in 2M!
Sometimes you have an activity that you want to complete on a particular day, but it doesn’t matter what time you do it. In the Time
field, you can prioritize activities instead of scheduling specific
times. Instead of entering a time, simply enter A, B, etc. and GoldMine
will prioritize them in alphabetical order according to your notations.
note: Prioritizing activities means they will show up in the Task
portion of your Calendar, but will not be assigned a block of time, so
we recommend you use this shortcut for flexible activities only. All
activities will also appear in your Activity list.
