As you can see from the screenshot, there’s a calculated
Task Score, so that each day it’ll show you tasks with the highest scores. As a bonus, it has great built-in keyboard shortcut support, so we could minimize touching the mouse:

It should create an
Amplenote.desktop, so we could just launch it with the application launcher.
I recommend this Amplenote 101 series to learn the basic keyboard shortcuts and how to take advantage of the Idea Execution Funnel mentioned above.
