This is the official manual for the latest Org-mode release.
The views are created through a dispatcher, which should be bound to a global key—for example C-c a (see Activation). In the following we will assume that C-c a is indeed how the dispatcher is accessed and list keyboard access to commands accordingly. After pressing C-c a, an additional letter is required to execute a command. The dispatcher offers the following default commands:
org-agenda-text-search-extra-files. This uses the Emacs command
multi-occur. A prefix argument can be used to specify the number of context lines for each match, default is 1.
org-agenda-sticky. With sticky agendas, the agenda dispatcher will not recreate agenda views from scratch, it will only switch to the selected one, and you need to update the agenda by hand with r or g when needed. You can toggle sticky agenda view any time with
You can also define custom commands that will be accessible through the dispatcher, just like the default commands. This includes the possibility to create extended agenda buffers that contain several blocks together, for example the weekly agenda, the global TODO list and a number of special tags matches.
