  1. I often have many completed tasks in my task list by the end of the day, and it's kind of a pain to delete them all.

    It would be nice to be able to hit a button and clear all the complete tasks.

  4. As part of a much larger project team I use Task Coach to manage my personal subset of project tasks.

    Because the hierarchical task and category structures have already been created by others in the project team (normally in a spreadsheet file) it would be great to be able to bulk import them from a file of some common format ie CSV.

  5. Now that we have the export to html/css the only thing needed to make a web for view current status is an option to specify an auto export option. Here can be two options:
    1.- Time related autoexport. For example, every 5 minutes.
    2.- Event related autoexport. For example, when someone change the status of a task.
    And there must be a option to say where must be exported.

  7. Taskcoach writes an error log to the program installation directory, which
    is helpful when troubleshooting. However the existance of the log is not
    immediately apparent to the user as it's not advertised until the program
    closes (and perhaps not always?). I keep TC running all the time, so am not
    notified of the error log. I only found it after spending some time
    searching the support requests and read of someone else mentioning it.

    I have a suggestion to help remedy this: add a "Show error log" item to the
    Help menu. This will make the log more accessible, without…

  8. Have a context menu, a hotkey, or a similar flexible method, to postpone a task deadline directly from the task list viewer (e.g. I see a task I will not be able to finish this week, dancing in red on top of task list, I right click and select "Postpone to -> Next Monday" and it shifts its deadline accordingly ...

  10. I have several tasks that are ongoing and have no deadline, and as a result mess up the timeline view for me (which I would otherwise find useful).

    I would like to have the option to only have certain tasks appear on the timeline view, whether by toggling a flag on certain tasks or by excluding based on criteria.

  11. Categories should have a time spent attribute. The time spent on a category should be the total of time spent on tasks belonging to that category.

  12. No tasks have a Due Date earlier than a Start Date, and for many, it is the same.

  14. I've been enjoying the recurring task feature quite a bit and I think it is a major feature for Taskcoach. My one minor complaint is that if a task repeats, the original time budget remains unaffected.

    For example, I have a daily 20 minute task setup. The first day, if I spend 20 minutes, my remaining budget is 0. The next day I obviously would expect the task to take 20 minutes again, but with a starting budget of 0, I end up with -20 minutes after doing it. The next day -40, etc...

    This current method of calculation would…

    1. Provide the capability of displaying time (the term "time" is used here in its general sense (yyyy mm dd hh mm ss etc.)) in a user selectable and definable format.

    2. The format should also include user selectable delimiters between various units of time such as "space" ( ), "hyphen" (-), "forward slash" (/), "greater than" (>), and other symbols to separate the various units of time.

  17. The effort records seem to be tied to particular tasks. When a task is completed & deleted, the effort spent on it disappears. It would be nice to have effort records independent of tasks.
