Two options that I can think of.

1) Port your TD command to RDi and use it in the Object Table which works much like PDM. We wrote it up here: <> Susan has also done more specific pieces on the topic for <>

2) Replace your current system by the iSphere Tasks option. This allows you to code special comments in your RPG that will be picked up as To-Do items. TODO is one of the defaults but you can make up your own. This causes the Note to be added to the task list in RDi. A simple RPG program could also be written to build a consolidated list of all the current tasks. My partner Susan Gantner wrote it up here: <>

One thing is delaying a full rollout of RDi for maintaining all our source files.

We have a WRKMBRPDM mini-cmd that helps us maintain our notes of issues that were discovered in various programs.
These issues did not rise in importance to become full fledged projects yet. Rather, these are programmer notes collected over the years of fixes and ideas to present to our users.

In PDM, we have a command that we use to build a member for these notes in the source file NOTES.
This member is the same name as the Production Source Member. ( These are not necessarily Tasks for RDi yet. )

When we are in PDM working on source, option "TD" activates our TODO command, passing &N to the command.
The command simply does

I would like to create a User Action in RDi to open a member - or to display a CTL+SHIFT+A panel.
Is there a way to do this in RDi ?
Does the iSphere add-on have something that can help me with this ?
