10.2 The agenda dispatcher

The views are created through a dispatcher, which should be bound to a global key--for example C-c a (see section 1.2 Installation). 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:

Create the calendar-like agenda (see section 10.3.1 The weekly/daily agenda).
t / T
Create a list of all TODO items (see section 10.3.2 The global TODO list).
m / M
Create a list of headlines matching a TAGS expression (see section 10.3.3 Matching tags and properties).
Create the timeline view for the current buffer (see section 10.3.4 Timeline for a single file).
Create a list of entries selected by a boolean expression of keywords and/or regular expressions that must or must not occur in the entry.
Search for a regular expression in all agenda files and additionally in the files listed in 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.
# / !
Create a list of stuck projects (see section 10.3.6 Stuck projects).
Restrict an agenda command to the current buffer.(81) After pressing <, you still need to press the character selecting the command.
< <
If there is an active region, restrict the following agenda command to the region. Otherwise, restrict it to the current subtree.(82) After pressing < <, you still need to press the character selecting the command.

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. See section 10.6 Custom agenda views.
