Other Task Coach requests

This forum is for feature requests that are not strictly about the operation of the desktop or iPhone version of Task Coach. They may include general ideas, website feedback, and features that would require creating new services and systems outside of the main program.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  3. Make the Linux packages available in repositories

    This is the best task manager I've ever used, and I wish it were available in my Linux distibution's normal software repositories, so I can keep it up to date as easily as I can for everything else on my computer. Please make it available in the repositories of all popular Linux distributions.

  4. Set up a bounty system (bountysource.com, opensourceexperts.com) so we can pay you to do good work!

    Votes are nice, but cash is better. I'd like to pay minor amounts to have particular features integrated into Task Coach through a site such as bountysource.com or opensourceexperts.com

  5. AS3 API Flash / Air Version

    Using flash and air you could see task coach on many devices including the browser. Ideally this would be a great opensource project for flash devs to build interfaces for. We would need an AS3 API.

  6. Create a yum repository

    Hi Frank,

    could you perhaps create a yum repository on the download site, so that automated updates of TaskCoach can be done on Fedora ? (It should be easy, see http://yum.baseurl.org/wiki/RepoCreate ...)

    Thanks, Petr

  7. Evolution

    Would be really nice to have the task integrate with Evolution.

    e.g. When I create a task that does not require a completion date or time, do nothing, but if it requires a completion time, add an Evolution calendar item.

  9. migrate from hosting the source on Sourceforge to Github

    This I believe will allow for more conversation and community involvement around the code and hopefully recruiting more developers. It will be tough changing processes and learning a new technology but I think worth it.

    The pattern I have seen and used myself is to have Sourceforge handle the file hosting and distribution and Github hosting the source and version management with the possibility of using their wiki and issue tracking.

  11. Integrate GUI with CLAWS

    This is far better than Lightning and Outlook on features, but slow and lacking on integration with mail. Drag'n Drop just is way more uncomfortable than context-menu "create task from this mail" or "Mail this task"

    Claws is lightning fast and has Python-scripting - ideal match to get the best PIM ever. It should be easy to tightly integrate these programes into one through a Claws plugin, creating a PIM suite that beats both Thunderbird/Lightning and Outlook.

    Join forces now, let those applications start up together and let them communicate with eachother by contextmenu and shortcuts :-)

    (This is "Basic…

  12. sync with Producteev

    titles says it all. Not much point only having to my tasks when I'm at home. Allowing sync to producteev would open possibilities to manage tasks on the go.

  13. Make a phpBB forum on the TaskCoach.org website instead of using Yahoo groups

    Much better system overall, easier to see conversations, encourage community involvement, full html text, better aesthetic…

    Or whatever other FLOSS forum that is adequate or better than phpBB…

  14. Add downloadable templates section on the website

    Just an idea - but if you know who is likely to be using the software e.g. website designers, why not make downloadable templates available on your website so that it has more personal appeal and ppl can get up and running quickly - and use the software in a known process environment?

    Note: this was moved from the desktop request section.

    Also, task templates already exist, but if you want layout templates, vote for this other request:
    http://taskcoach.uservoice.com/forums/26465-desktop-version-windows-linux-mac-of-task-coach/suggestions/329664-save-and-reapply-custom-layouts

    Also, the same website sharing would work great with this other request:
    http://taskcoach.uservoice.com/forums/26465-desktop-version-windows-linux-mac-of-task-coach/suggestions/371680-save-presets-of-defined-filters-and-sorting

  15. sell feature request votes

    I have a ton of new ideas that I would like to see developed in Task Coach. I think it has promise to be so much more, and I really want to support it. I am not a programmer (though I've thought of learning), but I can eventually help with documentation, promotion, and other things.

    But I want to see the project get more funding. And I want my new ideas (which I have yet to post — I'll try to organize and explain them clearly) implemented.

    I think you should sell votes here. I'd like to donate $ anyway,…

  19. Freshbooks or Basecamp data export

    It would be really neat if I could export data from Task Coach to Freshbooks (or Basecamp), so I could use Task Coach to log the time, and then Freshbooks to invoice it.
