        I'd like an option to crop the category path so it only displays the last sub-category in the path. It's wastes a lot of space to display the entire category path in the column. In most cases, the last sub-category would be sufficient to identify the category.

          Any update on this? Will Task Coach version 3 support local notifications?

            Yes, I agree with this feature request. The category column becomes very cluttered when you are displaying a category that is nested under several parent categories. I would like an option to display just the category, without showing the entire path. This could be implemented as an option in the column selection dialog. For example: "Show entire path for this column". If this option is enabled, you get the entire path, otherwise, just the bottom-most item. This same logic would apply to the Preqrequisites/Dependencies columns. I've started playing around with dependencies in the latest development build and I'm finding that these columns are pretty much useless when an item is dependent upon another item that is nested under several parent items. I'd like to be able to display the actual task that a given task is dependent upon, without trying to display the entire path in the column.

              I am strongly in favor of adding custom fields as a feature. There should be two types of custom fields: free-form text fields, and select fields that would be similar to categories, in which you could select from a list of pre-defined options and each custom select field could be designated as either single-select or multiple-select. Additionally, I would like to have the option to specify that certain fields are required.

              I know that many users, including myself, are using categories as a way of assigning properties to tasks. For instance, one category might be "User" and its subcategories would be a list of people who could be responsible for completing the task. This method works OK, but it has several drawbacks that could be overcome with custom fields:

              1. There's no way to view the properties as independent columns. They're lumped in with the other categories and it's messy and long to have to view the category name, followed by the subcategory for each property. In the above example, for instance, you would have "User -> Some User Name" in the category column for every task that has a user assigned. This is hard to read and it drowns out the legitimate categories that are assigned to the task. Instead, I would like to be able to define a User column and simply have the assigned user appear as the only item in that column

              2. There's no way to sort by a given property, since it's mixed in with other categories

              3. There's no way to designate a particular property as required. For instance, in the above example, I might want to require that a user be assigned to every task.
