        • Single Reminder Window

          If reminders could come up in a table format instead of individual pop-ups for each it would be a huge help. Sometimes you want to leave the multiple reminders open but to move them out of your way, so they don't block you screen view, you have to move them one at a time. This is awkward and time consuming.

            • Highlighting+detailing the running task without looking into Task Coach

              I would love to see this ticking clock, appearing as the TaskCoach icon when minimized to system tray, (more) highlighted/salient on my screen.
              --> Having the ticking clock icon as symbol also in the task bar shown, would already fulfill the job.

              And a strong improvement on top of that feature would be, if instead of the ticking clock there would be shown the specific choosen icon of the running TaskCoach task. This would be fantastic!

              Thanks, btw, for that very great opensource software!
              Clemens

                  • Longer Date Range Options in Calendar Viewer

                    I'm not sure if this is already possible - I posted in Yahoo Groups asking, but my post isn't showing up so I'll try here.

                    For longer term projects I would like to be able to see a quarterly or annual overview in the "Calendar Viewer" using the "horizontal" orientation (the gantt chart view).

                    This could be achieved by having the option for columns to be displayed as 'weeks' or 'months' rather then just 'days'. It would also be nice to have some control over the heading text (size and content) so column size can be reduced without making a…

                    • Desktop environment independent GUI that is also theme-able

                      So, I recently stumbled on a problem I didn't have before.
                      I love dark themes, and now the cinnamon desktop environment on Linux Mint comes with a dark theme that will turn any application dark themed. It usually works great! Usually... for those rare cases in which it doesn't work great, I just use the application's dark theme or search for one online.

                      So, how about making the GUI desktop environment independent? So it can always have it's own look and feel. Kind of like what Vivaldi does, or Chrome.

                      • Add the ability to categorize/earmark effort.

                        Currently there is no way to easily identify billed effort or charge different rates without creating redundant tasks. The following are some features which would make the application much easier to use.

                        1) After exporting task efforts it would be beneficial to be able to mark those efforts as billed. I currently create a stop and start effort entry to show where I last exported and billed the efforts.
                        2) Mark an effort with no charge or enable the ability to change the billing rate at the effort level. I currently create a redundant task with a no charge category…

                        • add to toolbar (quicklink) view-filter-categories

                          so that you can filter your categories a lot quicker/easier rather than going through the menu and 2 sub menus.

                          cheers

                            Please add the ability to enter expensed items which can be totaled similar to effort and exported. Currently one has to use a separate application to enter expenses related to effort.

                            • Option for marking new taska automatically as active tasks

                              I'm using Task Coach very often and a lot, so i have many tasks to create. I disabled all inactive tasks for better overview, but every new task is a inactive task. So i first have to activate the vision for inactive tasks, search for my new ones between all the other tasks, mark them as active and than deactivate the inactive tasks again.
                              Is it possible to bring an option that all new tasks are automatically an active task? Thanks a lot!

                              • Monetize this somehow for your sake and that of your users

                                So, this isn't a feature request but just a thought which I'm sure you've considered, but which I would like to submit to the community as well.

                                People like free things. However, what people like more than free things are things which are lasting and reliable. The development on TaskCoach as been amazing. I can't find its equal. There are paid alternatives, most if not all of which are very expensive.

                                You have a large user base who love this software. Millions of users. Monetizing TaskCoach could be as simple as developing official mobile apps. This could mean the difference…

                                • It would be interesting to get a list sorted by date of all activities.

                                  The goal is to quantify the time spent on each activity at the end of a period of time, for example, tasks performed for a month every day.
