regarding your point about calendar events automatically moving to Done. I like the idea of having to manually move events to DONE. It forces me to look at the event again, check off that it was actually done or reschedule it, and possibly post a follow-up note or event. But then again, I don't have a ton of scheduled events in Chandler, I mostly use Chandler as task and idea management. If I'm not mistaken, I think the developers don't want to make this a full blown calendar program.

Subject: [chandler-users] Unscheduled Tasks, Views, Calendar Events & the Triage
Recently I raised the issue of unscheduled tasks not being sorted properly ("properly" here meaning in the way I expected them to be sorted). There was a legitimate objection raised about my suggestion that unscheduled tasks should sink to the bottom of the list. I now have another suggestion, which I think might be more useful.
There are three types of view available from the icons at the top: All, Starred (which used to be Tasks) and Calendar. In my view that is one too few. In this arrangement unstarred notes simply get lost, since the only way they can be seen is by looking through the All listing, where they are successfully hidden.
If there was also an Unstarred View, which showed only non-calendar notes that had NOT been starred (or, in the old jargon, had not been turned into Tasks), then this could be used, among other things, for storing unscheduled notes.
At the moment, if I do not star a note when it is created then it is difficult to find it later. Having an option to view unstarred notes would be very useful (to me at least).
On another, but related, topic: am I right that calendar events move from Later to Now automatically but do not move from Now to Done automatically? It seems from looking at my All view that this is so. Many recent calendar events from last week are still marked as Now. If I am right then I think that it is inconsistent and annoying, and greatly diminishes the value of the All view. If I am not right then what am I doing wrong :)
