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
(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
yellow. Alternatively, use the specific colour codes, such as
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))
