5.4 Priorities

If you use Org mode extensively, you may end up with enough TODO items that it starts to make sense to prioritize them. Prioritizing can be done by placing a priority cookie into the headline of a TODO item, like this

     *** TODO [#A] Write letter to Sam Fortune

Org mode supports three priorities: ‘A’, ‘B’, and ‘C’. ‘A’ is the highest, ‘B’ the default if none is given. Priorities make a difference only in the agenda.

C-c ,
Set the priority of the current headline. Press ‘A’, ‘B’ or ‘C’ to select a priority, or <SPC> to remove the cookie.
S-<up>
S-<down>
Increase/decrease priority of current headline
