  1. 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.

  2. I think it would be usefull if it would be possible to switch the timeline viewer between horizontal and vertical time scale.

  3. 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. 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.

  5. If the color of an indication sign was changing with different priority, the overview of the most important/urgent tasks would be better visible.

    That is e.g., for priority 0 = grey, 1 = black, 2 = green, 3 = red (similar to the color of the circle indicating the different status: completed, overdue,...

  7. I would like to see more customizable reports in Task Coach, specifically in relation to reporting periods and grouping (by category.)

    For example:
    - Daily summary of effort between Date 1 and Date 2 for all tasks tagged with a selected category.

    Currently effort can be filtered by details, day, week or month. Sometimes the month or week that I want to report on does not align with a regular work week. Being able to set the start and end date would be a major improvement.

    A tally of the total time spent would also be a nice addition to…

  8. 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.

  9. 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. In Effort View, it is a bit annoying to change task of an effort that was already started: in the list box appear all the tasks, no matter if they are already completed (even if in Task View the option 'hide tasks if completed' is enabled).

  11. I think that some people use the program for the job (as me), and the days
    of weekends don't be used for work, but in the attribute column of days
    remainding, it count all the week.
    For example, I have a task that must be completed before 20 of may of 2009
    (Wednesday) and today is 14 of may of 2009 (Thursday), then program mark 6
    days left. But in Saturday and Sunday I don't work and therefore I really
    have 4 days only.

  12. It would be quite a nice feature to print a single task with all the details and with or without all the subtasks.

  13. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. I would like to see a "keyboard shortcuts" option in the preferences menu that allowed the user to use any desired key for an action.

    For instance i would prefer to use <cntrl-UP> to increase a task priority instead of <cntrl-I>. Or assign <a> to open attachments...

    Thanks again for the great software. I'll pledge 5 EU for implementation.

  18. Show efforts for currently selected task and update effort list when task selection changes. (currently show effort for one task only shows effort for for the task, that was selected at the moment of activate the view port of 'show effort for one task')
