Customise your own todo states

You can also define your own todo states and workflow to support the way you work.

Check if there is a better approach

You can define todo states per .org file (to investigate).

Define states and workflow for all .org files in the .spacemacs file, inside dotspacemacs/user-config as follows

  (with-eval-after-load 'org
    (setq org-todo-keywords
         '((sequence "todo" "doing" "blocked" "review" "|" "done" "archived"))))

Setting colours (faces) for todo states to give clearer view of work

Setting a different colour for each TODO state makes it easier to see the status at a glance. Using the X11 color names gives colours that are easy to notice but are not to strong.

Add the following code to the dotspacemacs\user-config section of the .spacemacs file:

(with-eval-after-load 'org
  (setq org-todo-keyword-faces
        '(("todo" . "SlateGray")
          ("doing" . "DarkOrchid")
          ("blocked" . "Firebrick")
          ("review" . "Teal")
          ("done" . "ForestGreen")
          ("archived" .  "SlateBlue"))))

Use simpler names or colour codes

If the above codes do not work for you, try simpler colour names such as green, blue, yellow. Alternatively, use the specific colour codes, such as #242424.

Automatically log completion date-time

When a heading status enters DONE, add a closed: property with current date-time stamp

  (with-eval-after-load 'org
    (setq org-log-done 'time))
