  1. Hi,

    Currently, when 2 (or more) users are opening the same file, a change one
    made is not seen by the other, until he re-opens the application.

    A "push tier" is one possible solution to pass changes to the other users.

    Best regards,
    Kobi

  2. I think there should be a smoother way to re-order tasks. I'm a bit long-winded here, but I do think finding a way to address this would be a major improvement for taskcoach...

    Here's how i see the problem: Task dependency (not yet implemented) partially address this, but falls short if you plan to tackle subtasks from more than one parent task in the short term. Priority is helpful, but falls short in that you have to manually go in and increase or decrease tasks one at a time to get them into an order of what you would like…

  3. I'd like to see a facility to add log entries to a task. This would allow short notes to be attached to tasks as I work on them. These log entries should be date and time stamped to give the user a feel for the flow of activity.

    Such a feature would be a huge help for many, I suspect who need a feature to help remember what got done to a task and when it happened, even though the task itself is not yet done.

    This is possible already.

    Instead of tracking efforts by just clicking the track button or by using cntl-T, use cntrl-E instead. That will open a new effort, complete with the ability to add text notes to the description for each effort.

    You can see a log of efforts by making an effort viewer in View>New Viewer, and you can include a description column in that viewer. You can filter by both category and by text search.

    You will probably want to show the description column in the task edit window’s effort tab. You can adjust this by right-clicking in the column header.

    If you want instead to make notes that are not tied to efforts, then you might want to vote for this request for adding a date marker to notes:

    So I am marking this complete. Please add any comments below if you think there is still something…

    It would be great to be able to view all tasks and deadlines on a single calendar. What I mean is that besides having a list of tasks, you should be able to see them on a calendar with the start dates and due dates listed.
    Also, this isn't quite on topic, but, it would be good to be able to create one-time events viewable on this calendar (example: meeting with customer, math test, etc.)

  5. A task's start date, end date, and status should be able to change based on its relationship to other task(s). For example, if a task will require 3 days to complete but cannot begin until a preceding task is complete, then the 3 day task should stay in status "inactive" until the preceding task completes, and then Task Coach automatically changes the dependent task's status to "active" and sets the start and end date accordingly based on the user-provided duration for the task (i.e. 3 days).

    Task Coach should be able to provide estimated start and end dates for all…

  6. Thunderbird's calendar program (and others) support the newer iCalendar file format. By adding support for this export format it should provide the ability for users to view their tasks in a calendar format without making huge changes to the task coach program. (by using calendar tools to do the UI for that mode.) Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_applications_with_iCalendar_support

  7. I would like to be able to mark completed task with a line through it just like I would cross it off a paper list. Right now it just changes color. You might want to make this optional but I'm betting if it was available most people would use it.

  8. I'm missing a feature which is part of Outlook's Task Scheduler.

    When marking a task with a given period for recurrency as done i.e. completed the task should be rescheduled based on the date of completion.

  9. If a task is having its effort tracked and the PC is idle for a user-configured time period, task coach should pop up a warning to either 1. Continue tracking effort, 2. Stop tracking effort at the timeout time, 3. start tracking a new effort. So if I go to lunch and forget to stop tracking effort for a task, when I return Task Coach has reminded me of that ....

  10. I think it'd be helpful to add a new Status field. Other task management tools have this. It would be nice to easily mark a task as "In Progress" or "Completed" or "Awaiting Feedback" or "Postponed" etc. It would be nice to then be able to sort/filter based on this field.

  12. I would like to be able to select multiple tasks, bring up the edit function, and have all fields available -- but have any changes mass edit all selected tasks.

    Currently, if several tasks are selected, choosing edit function brings up the tasks one at a time for editing.

  15. This would enable us to better trace the status of subjects and tasks by entering notes which would be sorted and marked for creation date.

    This is also useful when creating an inbox for the GTD methodology, and it would be nice to sort newly entered tasks by the creation date.

  16. I suggest you create a feature that lets you adjust the position of a task by being able to drag and drop. This idea is split out from the "Better control over task order" which contains many different suggestions.

  17. Please allow specifying the start time as well as the start date for a
    task. Tasks would remain color coded as future tasks until both the start
    date and time have been reached.

    That allows graceful handling of things like tasks that need to be done
    daily at 2:00, or every Wednesday at 3:00.
    Adding an end time allows for handling of tasks due at a certain time not just "today".

  20. Task Coach assumes that Monday is the first day of the week for the
    purposes of showing "Effort per week". Our work week actually starts
    Sunday & ends Saturday. It'd be nice if one could configure the first day
    of the week.
