Getting Things Gnome (GTG) is a free and open source personal organizer/task manager inspired by the “Getting Things Done” (GTD) methodology


On the header bar, you can:

  • create a new task;
  • change the task start date;
  • access the “Open”, “Actionable”, and “Closed” view modes;
  • perform a search;
  • get access to the program settings.

  • Search. Search for tasks using GTG’s Search Syntax. You can also save search queries;
  • Sidebar. You can turn it on/off in the main menu. You can view all tasks, saved searches, tasks with no tags, and tasks by individual tag;
  • You can sort tasks in the task browser by name, start date, and due date;
  • There is a quick addition of a task entry, which is located below the task browser;
  • You can add a subtask to a task.

When you right-click on the selected task, you will see the editing options:

  • add a subtask;
  • edit;
  • mark as completed;
  • cancel;
  • remove;
  • set the start date;
  • set a deadline;
  • to change the tags.

  • When editing a task, you can paste links, add tags (start with the “@” sign), and add subtasks (start with a dash “-”) inside the Task Editor;
  • You can apply/generate colors to saved search results and tags;
  • You can choose the font family and size

List of currently available plugins in GTG:

  • Untouched Tasks. Assigns tasks that you have not touched for a while with the @untouched tag;
  • Send Tasks via Email. Adds a button in the menu on the Task Editor toolbar, which allows you to easily send a task (with its status, due dates, tags, and subtasks) through email;
  • Export and Print. Exports the tasks in the current view into a variety of formats;
  • Urgency Color. Calculates the urgency status of each of your currently active tasks and color-codes those tasks accordingly.
