Find and replace, a new useful tool


You might already be familiar with my website and my tools over at minimalist-work (now called iDO tools). A new tool is joining the toolbox!

The Find and replace tool will allow to to replace a given pattern in task names and section names for a given project.

Example use cases:

  • include “PROJECT_NAME >” before each task name in a template and use my tool to replace them all with the actual project name
  • include a “CANDIDATE_NAME” in sections and tasks for an onboarding template and replace them in one go

Let me know if you find the tool useful and if you have ideas to improve it. I usually don’t give everything for free: in this case, you’ll have to use my own pattern in your templates unless you get a token. I believe this is fair enough :slight_smile:

Take care!


Very nice tool @Bastien_Siebman just tested it!
This will be a huge timesaver for many for sure

Does this work on subtasks too?

I believe it does, I would have to test again. Would that make you use the tool @Bryan_Do ?
