Plan #

Plan helps you track personal and household Projects and Tasks in one spot.

Our household uses Plan to track recurring household tasks and household projects. We have recurring tasks for chores (for everyone in the household, kids included), maintenance reminders, and our pets. We track all of our household projects/vacations/home improvement plans within it so we all know what needs to be done.

I added Plan to Homechart to replace Todoist for our household. We felt too disorganized having things within one app that referenced a line on a Google Sheet, and I wanted to have more integrations with other things in Homechart like Budgeting.

Projects #

Plan > Projects are typically where Tasks belong, though they can be found under a general Personal or Household bucket too. A Project is a collection of other Projects, Shop > Items, and Tasks. Projects can be associated with Budget > Category.

Tasks #

Plan > Tasks are a thing that you or your household needs to do. Tasks can contain other Tasks (Sub Tasks). Task Names and Details use Markdown, so they can link to things within or outside Homechart if necessary. Tasks can have a Due Date, Due Time, and a Duration. Setting these values will have the Task appear in Calendar, and you’ll receive Settings > Notifications for them.

You can make tasks recur by setting a Due Date and ticking Recurring. Tasks can either recur on their Due Date, or you can tick Recur Based on Completion Date to have the task recur on the date when you actually complete it.

Tasks can reference an Inventory > Item, so you can associate maintenance tasks with your Lawn Mower.

Templates #

Tasks can be converted to Personal or Household Templates, Tasks (and sub-tasks) that can be easily copied like a packing list for a vacation.

Plan integrates with:

  • Budget: Plan > Projects can be associated with a Budget > Category
