For example, suppose I have this document:

* category 1
** TODO item 1.1
** not a todo item
** DONE a done todo item
** TODO item 1.4
* category 2
** not a todo item
** not a todo item
* category 3
** DONE done item
* category 4
** TODO item 4.1
*** TODO subitem 4.1.1
*** TODO subitem 4.1.2

When collapsed, I'd like to see something like:

* category 1 (2)...
* category 2 (0)...
* category 3 (2)...
* category 4 (3)...

Adding progress cookies to your ToDo items will reflect the number of done vs. total todo items.

Just add [/] at the end of the headline, and C-c C-c to update.

Example:

* category 1 [1/3]
** TODO item 1.1
** not a todo item
** DONE a done todo item
** TODO item 1.4

This works both for ToDo items or lists with checkboxes.

  • Thanks, TIL about statistics cookie. Too bad they don't work recursively, i.e. in category 4 it will show [0/1] instead of [0/3]. But hey, this is fantastic already. – Gerry Lufwansa Jun 12 '14 at 4:38
