Re: [Orgmode] Show parent PROJECTS for an item

I had the idea of using CATEGORY as a keyword.


using #+CATEGORY (or the CATEGORY property)
has the disadvantage that if I change the headline the category does not update:

* PROJECT my_renamed_project1
  :CATEGORY: myproject1
** TODO clean garage    :home:
myproject1 TODO clean garage    :home:

In this example the Agenda should show "my_renamed_project1" instead of "myproject1"

The next step would then be to enable the user to define this CATEGORY-keyword or bind it's function to an existing keyword. (e.g. PROJECT)

If there is a simpler way of getting the partent headline as agenda-prefix... > that would be even cooler and much less work I can imagine.

No, just a workaround of inserting both the parent and the child and
letting the dots tell you the relationship between them.
I would have to show all Project headlines in order to make this work...
However, I only want the parent of my ACTION (keyword) headlines... not all projects.
And it would waste waaay to much space on my daily-printed-out-agenda.

I am looking for something like this format:


* PROJECT My-project
** PROJECT My-sub-project
*** PROJECT My-sub-sub-project
**** NEXT Clean garage    :home:


My-sub-sub-project NEXT Clean garage    :home:

This is my most-wanted feature atm. :)
