In its simplest implementation, TaskWhy is a series of folders, one per category, with contained folders: one per task. Initially, my categories were the Deming wheel: plan, do, check and act. I would move the tasks from one category to the other with defined processes for each folder. I am now settled on the top-level categories being simply verbs of any nature. My identification of tasks is therefor [verb]/[thing].
FocusPlex implementation of TaskWhy
The FocusPlex on FocusPlex.com implementation of Taskwhy simply uses the character ~verb/concept1 to identify the tasks to be done. Then, these identified tasks are stored in four-level folders
task/verb/c/concept/ (in this example, but more generally
task/[verb]/[a-z]/[concept]/ where [a-z] is the first letter of the concept).
Inside each folder, the default file is un.md. Translations are identified by their two-letter language codes.
Like with whowhatetc, I have macros in VIMWiki and Visual Studio Code to create necessary links.
