    As v. 1.3.21, there is a new date/time picker. simply type “s” when choosing date or time for START of day and “e” in the time for END of day. These can be set as defaults in the preferences also, so they’ll only need to be changed if something changes the time. When these times are used, time will be hidden in the task viewer and only date is shown.

    This is not a complete solution (see my comments below), but it is a workaround for now.

    @Aaron, I agree that manually having to set all times to 0:00 is not a good work around, so a better soution for ignoring time is needed. The effort viewer already has rounding, maybe the task viewer should also support rounding (instead of a setting to hide time) so it's all consistent?

    AdminFrank Niessink (Admin, Task Coach) commented  · 

    No need for a setting, just use 0:00 or 23:59 as time and the times will not be shown in the task viewer.

    Grouping by category is the a complicated one, by the way, since tasks may belong to multiple categories. Would that mean tasks would be repeated under each category they belong to? Hmmm.

    Snarl is already supported. What exactly are you asking for?

    I don't think UserVoice supports this. If we do this by hand it would be so much administration there would be no time left for anything else :-) So I guess this really is a feature request for UserVoice more than for Task Coach...

    I don't understand what you're double clicking? The window header? A task? And on what platform are you (Windows, Linux, etc.)?

    The examples you gave have a different layout than the tree view in Task Coach, but conceptually there are the same: a hierarchy of work...

    And as you found out: making a good layout for an arbitrary number of tasks is hard.

    Please explain how the WBS view is different than the task tree view?

    Subtasks are by definition of the same category as their parent task since subtasks are part of their parent tasks. Do you have a concrete use case for this?

    This doesn't help with bringing the task in view in the task viewer, but if you want to edit the task that belongs to a specific effort record you can double click the effort record and then hit the "Edit task" button in the effort edit dialog.

    There is a way to access Task Coach items on Android through todo.txt format using the Free/Libre/Open app Simpletask
    see here:
    http://taskcoach.uservoice.com/forums/26480-other-task-coach-requests/suggestions/288896-support-for-accessing-task-coach-items-on-android

    We understand that is not the same as a full Android Task Coach app.

    We will need someone to create a GPLv3+ licensed Android app for Task Coach in order to get a full client. Anyone interested in helping with this project should contact us and we’ll be happy to assist them.

    I'd be happy to add an Android version to Task Coach, but someone else will have to step forward to create it. I simply don't have the time available that would have to be invested.

    The feature was removed because it was complex (both GUI and source code) and therefor hard to change and maintain. I'm thinking about adding a "recently completed" state for tasks, like we have "due soon". When that's added you should be able to hide have "recently completed" tasks visible and hide (the other) completed tasks.

    This is a lot of work. Small chance it will happen any time soon.

    @al You can drop viewer onto each other to create a notebook of viewers. That way you can easily switch between multiple viewers using Ctrl-Tab.

    Would be nice if you told us what producteev is, where to find it, whether it is open source or not, whether we would have to buy it or not, etc.

    When you sort the tasks by priority and you also check the "Sort by status first" in the View->Sort menu (or click the priority column header until the arrow has a striped background), the completed tasks should be sorted at the bottom of the list, regardless of priority. Not a complete a solution, but this may be a suitable work-around for you.
