Discussion Forum > DIT Backlog Question

I started a new DIT list today and declared a backlog of items. When working through the backlog of tasks (which is my current initiative), what is the right way to remove a task from the backlog?

If I work on it some but don't complete it, do I mark it off the backlog list and move it back to the DIT list for the next day? Or does it stay on the backlog list until it is completed?

Thanks!

When I was doing DIT, I would move such an item to the DIT list for the next day -- since the item is now an item I am actively working.

I just watched a brand new video on implementing DIT in Workflowy:

Frank (a Workflowy expert) of course credits Mark at the beginning of the video.

OK, rereading I see it was just Mark. But that's the definite answer anyhow, right? :)

@Austin - Perfect! Thanks! I had tried searching before posting but didn't have any luck.
