  1. I think it would be lovely, if taskcoach could be synchronized with redmine timetracking.

    redmine has very nice API to do that, http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/wiki/Rest_TimeEntries - so it shouldn't be technical problem.

  2. The possibility to import tasks via *.ics or even a textfile would be extremely helpful. (To synchronize it e.g. with the calendar)

  3. I have .tsk file with >300 tasks and >30 categories. On my notebook TaskCoach it very slow works with filtering tasks by categories. Further completed tasks will be greater!
    May be write TaskCoach based on SQLite with object-relational mapping (SQLObject,SQLAlchemy,..) for better performance?

  4. Hey,

    So I religiously believe in your task manager for my daily functions but i've always had one issue, the need to sort by priority then due date.

    Using the logic that one should tackle tasks in this order Urgent + Important > Important > Urgent + Not-Important > Not-Important you should be able to understand the request.

    If i had only three priority levels (1-3), 1 being the highest, then i'd want to tackle all the 1's first but first by which one is due soonest, then the 2's again by which one is due soonest, and then if…

  5. I'd like to printout the tree with the categories and the tasks of each categorie. Everytime I printout my taskplan I have to print every Window seperately, and after that I must painting the relations of categories an tasks by myself at the paper.

  7. Can you add a column that adds all task times for the selected category? Example: I have a parent category with 10 tasks. I would like to see a grand total of time, not just total time per task. Thanks!

  8. Could more date format options with the language chosen be provided, like the one with MS windows?
    This will allow the users choose what they wish to use.
    BTW, TaskCoach is a nice tool & thanks...

  11. I would like to see a import functionality to import freemind mindmaps as task trees.
    Freemind is a great/fast and simple mindmapping tool to write ideas down. A import into taskcoach would make the lives of all freemind+taskcoach users easier.

  12. I'm using Task Coach behind different proxy servers, so it can't check for any update and returned with error 407: Unauthorized.

  13. I would like to have the option to display (and enter) time in 24-hour format for U.S. English. I am reluctant to upgrade to the new version that changed this to be 12-hour A.M./P.M. format.

    Thanks!

  14. 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.

  15. It would be nice to be able to add columns showing only one category instead of just all categories.
    This opens many possibilities:
    - easy toggling a category on/off
    - sorting

    When a category has subcategories, the category column could show just the subcategories. If then there is possibility to make subcategories unique (choosing one subcategory unmarks the other subcategories), it's near of having custom user fields, enabling:
    - easy choosing a subcategory
    - sorting on subcategories

  16. Many of the dialogs barely fit on the netbook screen, even when dragging the title bar to the top of the screen. Also, the window position is not remembered when re-opening the application (window size is remembered).

  18. You can easily create a new top-level task and you can easily create a new sub-task, but you can't easily create a second, third, etc., sub-task at the same sub-task level. You need a button for that.

  19. Add a way to filter tasks based on their priority. This way it's possible to focus rapidly on what's urgent to do next. When there are many tasks and subtasks, it's better to filter while in "tree view", than having to change to "list view" and sort by priority.

  20. It would be great to accept a link to the directory taskcoach-templates. I use Task Coach on different machines , with different os (linux, win), and want to have only one directory for the templates. Unfortunately, Task Coach on Windows doesn't accept a link for the Task Coach template directory.
