Overview Org-mode is an Emacs mode for note keeping, project planning, TODO lists and authoring. It is included from Emacs 22.1 onward as default.
Go to the first , previous , next , last section, table of contents . Emacs provides the functions of a desk calendar, with a diary of planned or past events. To enter the calendar, type M-x calendar ; this displays a three-month calendar centered on the current month, with point on the current date. With a numeric argument, as in C-u M-x calendar , it prompts you for the month and year to be the center of the three-month calendar. The calendar uses its own buffer, whose major mode is Calendar mode. Mouse-2 in the calendar brings up a menu of operations on a particular date; C-Mouse-3 brings up a menu of commonly used calendar features that are independent of any particular date.
Large documents are almost impossible to write without outlines. There’s just too much to fit in your head. Outlines help you work with a structure, so that you can see the big picture and how sections fit together. Outlines are also surprisingly useful when brainstorming. You can work with varying levels of detail, starting with a high-level overview and successively refining it, or starting with the details and then letting the structure emerge as you organize those details into groups.

Most of my notes are in Emacs Planner. Handy commands like M-x remember help me quickly take notes and write down ideas, saving the text to my blog. While reading the manual for Org, another PIM for Emacs (yes, another one!)
So you want to use Org as day planner. I’ll show you the bare minimum that you need in order to use Org to manage your tasks day by day. I assume that you’ve set up Org and Remember according to the basic configuration suggested in “Setup.” If you haven’t done that yet, please review the section on “Setup”, then return here. Here’s what you’ll learn how to do:
I spend most of my day working on or near a computer: writing, replying to e-mail, making phone calls, and so on. I use Lotus Notes for my calendar because people need to be able to check my availability for meetings. I use Emacs to keep track of what I need to do, because it makes planning my day so much easier.
The section on projects introduced tags as a way to differentiate active and inactive projects. In this section, you’ll learn more about tags and how you can use them to filter your task list. What’s a tag, anyway?
It is said that Emacs, that versatile toolbox for working with text, is more than merely a text editor—it's a lifestyle. That's not just hyperbole. In this article, I show you how to turn Emacs into a flexible personal organizer and productivity system. I started using Emacs for programming but soon discovered that it worked well for nonprogramming writing tasks too. I began experimenting with several modes that extend Emacs for writing notes and planning projects.
