Org-mode deadlines and scheduling

I like how Org-mode is simple enough that I didn’t have to know much to get a lot out of it.  But it’s also nice to slowly learn new things as I go.  For example, I just learned about setting deadlines and scheduling.

To insert a deadline, use:

C-c C-d

This tells Org-mode to list the task (probably a TO-DO item, but doesn’t have to be) in the agenda for that date.

Using the command

C-c C-s

Tells Org-mode that you are planning to start working on the task on a certain date. In the agenda view, this task gets forwarded every day until it is completed.
