Desktop version (Windows/Linux/Mac) of Task Coach

Welcome to the Task Coach feedback forum. This forum is for the desktop (Windows/Linux/Mac OS X) version of Task Coach. Please stick to basic operation of the program itself. Requests that require the implementation of technology outside of the main program go in the “Other feature request” section.

I suggest you ...

  1. Undo Completed-Task-Button in main window

    I'd like to be able to easily mark a completed task as none-completed. For example a grey check sign in addition to the existing green one, like the two buttons to activate/inactivate tasks. It'll be more comfortable than showing up the %completion-column and set it to 0%.

    • Make the display of time entirely user definable.

      1. Please note that the term "time" is used here in the generalized sense which includes year (yyyy), month (MM), day (dd), hour (hh), minute (mm), second (ss) & so on.

      2. The time format should be user definable. For example it should be possible to display time in any format and to any resolution. For example, one should be able to display time in the following format:

      2.1. yyyy MM dd hh mm ss

      • Delete efforts of multiple tasks at once

        It would be usefull to have a button in toolbar, that deletes all efforts of all selected tasks (multiselect) at once. I use Task Coach as a daily stop watch for tasks, because I have to switch between these tasks steadily. Once a day I have to reset all efforts.

        • Multiple task tabs with separated filters

          I want to have different tabs and a different view in each one.

          For example, one tab with the tasks for today, one tab with the tasks with the label 'Boss', one tab with the tasks with the label 'pending of X', etc.

          The name of the tab would be editable.

          • Autosave does not secure your data if your computer blacks out

            I lost all my work due to a computer blackout, even with autosave activated. I think that is a very important point.

                    • Priority Setting for Categories

                      I would like to suggest a priority setting and sorting for categories. For me, the category is the project and the tasks are the steps it takes to get the project done. In oder to stay focused and well organized, I need not only the tasks sorted by priority, but the projects/categories too.

                        • breadcrumbar navigation

                          Allow Breadcrumbbar navigation to show only a subtree instead of the full data. This helps you focusing on a single project.

                          An example of very good implementation of breadcrumbar navigation can be found at: workflowy.com

                          • Column summing up all efforts of a task including all subtasks

                            Show the complete sum of all efforts of a task and its subtasks in a simple way.
                            The effort window sums up per month at maximum. And I have to select each relevant task, to see its sum for a range of time there.
                            An additional column in the task window besides "budget/effort" named something like "budget/complete effort" or "effort sum" and showing the effort of each task including its subtasks would simplify my freelancer life enormously ... ;-)
                            Example: https://userbase.kde.org/File:Ktimetracker.png

                            • Remove Icon - quick button in the pane near "Mark task complete" which sets "No Icon" to the marked tasks

                              Hello, my suggestion is simple. I am a person who uses "Red Label" as a way to mark critical tasks which are more important than others. My job is such that I have project tasks and ones without due date.

                              Often, when I complete a task and click the "Mark as Completed", the Red label icon doesn't get removed. I have to Edit the Task manually, browse to Apperance and switch to No Icon which takes me 4-5 seconds to do.

                                    • 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.

                                      • reordering of subtasks of a parent task via drag and drop

                                        hi
                                        i think it would be good to be able to reorder subtasks of a parent task via drag and drop

                                        • 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!
