The "Summary View" I was referring to is the first 
entry in the sidebar (followed 
by "E-Mail" - "Contacts" - "Calendar" etc.) I prefer 
it over the "What's Next" view, which you mentioned, 
because the Summary View also displays emails 
received, recent RSS etc. 
But it's good to learn more about the What's Next view 
as well! :-)

Thanks, yes, that's pretty useful.
I would be good, though, if one could filter for 
priorities as well. Is there no way to achieve this?

Generally speaking, it would be nice to have a few more 
customization options (customizing the sorting 
algorithm for the Summary View and the What's Next 
view are other examples).
Is there any work being done in that direction 

What is the current state of KOrganizer anyway? I've 
been trying to find information online, but things 
seem to be rather quiet ...
