  1. possibility to enter a period of time, no specific dates (beginning, finish, ..)

    This would enhance the usability very much. It woud be possible to calculate the total time duration of a procedure not depending on specific
    dates. Templates for the same procedures could be created.
    This is project-management, I know ...

    • Add a "display current task in Tree" command

      Hello and thanks for TaskCoach, it is a very good piece of software.
      I usually use two viewers : the Tasks Tree Viewer, and the Effort list viewer.
      The Effort viewer allows me to resume a recent task because I can sort the list in chronological order.
      The Tasks Tree viewer allows me to organize and create new tasks.
      When I select an effort in the Effort viewer, I often want to find it in the Tasks Tree, and it is almost always hidden or scrolled out of the focus window.
      I would very much appreciate a command allowing to…

        • Include new field 'date of issue'

          It would be interesting to include a new field to record the 'date of issue/problem', as it does not coincide with the date when the corresponding record is created.

          • View Effort for Selected Task Only

            I would like to have the start-up effort window only show the effort items for the selected task and any children it may have. Changing the selected task will change the effort items shown immediately. I will be able to select items up/down the task tree. The only time I will see all tasks is when I have selected a root task/item.
            I am currently creating a new file for each task in order to achieve this where my preference would be to have all work in a single file and ordered in a treeview as [I believe] was intended. …

            • Keep effort records even when tasks change

              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.

              • alternate background color slightly in task view

                It'd be easier to see where each task starts and ends (especially if the heights vary) if the background color varied slightly with alternating tasks. It's a pretty common thing. White background, light grey or blue background, white background, etc.

                • Ask for time-cost / difficulty expectation

                  Once you start a task you should be asked for the time-cost (in min, hours, days) and difficulty that you expect for such a task and later on compare it with the real cost resulted. Good feature for post analysis and reports about own awareness and time-management control. Thanks for thinking about it!

                  • add function "Edit/Select/Last active task"

                    I have a lots of tasks (I use task coach a lot ! ) and have to scroll a lot when changing from one task to the other, eventually "losing" it.
                    Also when I stopped monitoring and want to resume on a task, this function would greatly help me in finding it.

                    • Allow moving task in time

                      It would be nice to be able to move a task in time. That is, a constant time (predefined list?) would be added or subtracted from all filled dates in the Dates tab. A keyboard shortcut would be nice to speed up the action. A motivation - for example I have a meeting at a set time, but the time of the meeting changes, so I want to rearrange the start date, due date and reminder date. Or a task I planned for today, but did not work on it, so want to move it to tomorrow. I think more…

                      • Ctrl + T starts a new effort. I'd like a hotkey combo to start a new effort from last stop. Instead of having to open the effort to do so.

                        It's great that you can start an effort and open it and click start from last stop, but it'd be nice to do something like ctrl+alt+t (since ctrl+shift+t is reserved for stop and alt+shift+t is for edit ) to start a new effort from last stop.
