Hello. Here are several requests for features that I think would be easy to implement but would vastly improve users personal workflows.
"Clean inbox which have…"- additional features
Currently we have the option to choose if we want tasks to move from the inbox if they a) have a tag b) have a project, both a & b and finally either a or b.
I would like to have the following options additional to these:
- estimated duration (some users try to have estimated durations on every task and their perspectives depend on this. To allow this setting would help users avoid the mistake of not putting one in)
- due-date. (similar to the motivation above, some users put due dates on every task).
Date-filters in perspectives
Some perspectives are built to show only items that hasn’t been touched for long.
Example: show me the tasks that hasn’t been modified for 3 months.
Implementation: add the option “Changed the last (day/week/month/year)”.
Additional to the last mentioned request I would like to see options for due-dates.
“Due within… (day/week/month/year)”.
Presentation sorting in perspectives ASC or DESC
Perspectives should have the ability to sort both ascending and descending.
At the moment, ascending is the only option. If I want to show my most procrastinated tasks, at this current moment I need to collapse all the changed items until I reach the bottom. I simply want to remove distractions.
Badgecount at this date is only determined by the following options: “flagged”, “due soon” or overdue. For making it easier for people to customize the app for their personal workflow I think tags and perspectives should also be available options.
Example: in the settings, I want to the badge to the items that either flagged, due and have the work tag.
Implementation: add the setting along with the other badge settings.
Additional to this, I would like to have the option to not count the projects as a task. At this date it is counted just as any other task.
Example for this need: If I have five projects with one task left which all have a due date, this is counted as 10 items in the forecast. I would like to see this as 5 remaining items.
Implementation suggestion 1: Let me, in the settings, decide if a project should count in the badge and forecast.
Implementation suggestion 2: A compromise would be to count a project UNLESS it is set to “complete with last action”. If I have a project set to complete with last action, and finish that action, that WAS NOT two actions. That was only one.
iOS task duration should be any number, not just “5, 10…”.
Adding tasks with images through shortcuts on iOS is broken.
Allow for users to see the month view in forecast on iOS.
Create an “add to imbox” app on iOS for fast collection. Super simple, no additional features than the pop-up and “add to inbox”.
- edit: I know that this can be done with shortcuts or variants with url-schemes. However, I think it would be much more reliable and better user experience to have an inbox app.
