No, I want to customize the daily agenda view so that it shows my
everything it does already, plus my STARTED todos. Or, make a custom
agenda which does that. I don't have a problem with using custom agenda
views, but the only ones I've been able to create are just lists of
todos, with no diary grid, etc.

I'll try this to see if it suits, but I can see straight away that the
clutter might be too much. That's the whole problem with custom agenda
views, that I end up with too many items when all I want to see in the
normal course of the day is the diary grid and the dated and started

I'm guessing that the triggers are only there for tags, not dates
otherwise this would be ideal. Maybe I'll have to manually schedule
anything I mark as STARTED. It's the extra step which is going to get
forgotten unfortunately.
