I agree with Allan's concern that the overview might not be the right
place for managing things. It's meant to find, click and close. Dragging
a file to the reminders in the overview would really be painful if you
need to click and keep pressed, go to the Activities corner, switch to
the Finding and Reminding panel...

I won't pretend that's /the/ solution, but how about dragging stuff to
the calendar? Roughly, we could have an expander named Pending Work, To
Do, or anything, that would show documents just like events are shown
now. Dragging a file to the date in the panel would immediately open the
calendar and the expander, and you could drop files either on a specific
date, or on the expander ("no precise date").

Mostly thinking out loud here, but there are not a hundred possibilities
if we don't want to create a little separate GTK app allowing for more
