Calendar Prioritizing

Does anyone know if there is a way to prioritize your calendar (like the order things are listed in). I have lots of stuff to do each day, but would like to put my most important toward the top so I don't miss them. Any ideas????????

Thanks!

Re: Calendar Prioritizing

If this is Calendar data, then you're probably talking about all-day events. I use leading spaces to control in what order all-day events appear.

In general, though, why use the calendar for what in your case sounds like a to-do list? Isn't that what Tasks is for?

You're exactly right...that is what im using my calendar for. I thought though if I use the tasks idea, they wouldnt show up on the home screen. Am I correct?

You're correct. If the goal is to have "to-do" items show up on the home screen, you're probably better off using something other than TF3D/Sense as your shell since the max seems to be 5 calendar items displayed.

You can have tasks displayed on your home screen, just not in TF3D/Sense.

I would love to know how to do this, I've been trying to get this for a long time...

Currently I'm testing out SPB mobile shell, haven't figured out how to do it with that either. I'd settle for any interface that gets my tasks on the today screen...any today screen....

Re: Calendar Prioritizing

There are several aftermarket solutions for this. I dislike all of them, but I don't do anything that's task-driven in a way that would make seeing tasks on my home screen of any use.

One product is TodayAgenda. Another is SPB Diary (not Mobile Shell). There's also SBSH Pocket Breeze.
