  2. Searchable timestamps for, e.g., log entries

    I'm using Checkvist for logging my activities over the day. Currently I create in my log list a new entry with the current date and then add my activities as subentries. However, this makes it not possible to search through my log efficiently, e.g. something like "show me all activities in the interval <start date> to <end date>" or "show me everything that happened in November". I don't want to use due dates for this as my activities would show up in my todo list. What would be great if there is something similar to due dates (simple timestamps, inserted…

  3. Keyboard shortcut to save new item and add another above

    When not editing an item, Alt+Enter adds a new item above the current one. Pressing Enter while editing a new item saves the item and adds a new item below. I'd like to have a keyboard shortcut for saving a new item and adding another above.

    Use case: I'm using a list for keeping track of to-dos, which is sorted from newest-to-oldest. It's useful to have this shortcut when adding multiple items in succession.

  4. Sticky the Quick Reference

    Similar to the Stick Header/Toolbar request. I would like to see a feature to make the right side quick reference toolbar sticky when scrolling. I'm loving the app, but I would like to be able to glance over for quick tips as opposed to entering the ? menu.

  5. Ability to display priority as a numeric value IN ADDITION to color priority.

    Seriously, what task list doesn't have a numbered priority setup? Without it, Checkvist is a dinosaur on steroids, an extremely high-quality archaic listing system. To make it more of a project management tool, a basic requirement is to have the ability to add numbered priority that will show as a bolded smaller number to the left of each task line, and to be able to show a non-destructive "sort" by priority number, without affecting any colored tasks. Along with this is the need to recognize that color is not always used for priority. I use color for other reasons, such…

  6. Non-destructive, read-only sorting.

    We need to be able to sort by a priority number, or other criteria, as non-destructive, meaning if the list is refreshed, the original order (prior to sort) is established. This would infer that the sorted list would be read-only and would have to have a "Edit (Original)" button.

  8. Fix setting that should filter out tasks from archived list for the calendar export

    When I try to export my tasks to Google Calendar with the help of "Send to Calendar" button on the Due page Google shows the events from the archived list even when the checkbox "Include due tasks from archived lists" is unchecked.

    The URL for the calendar contains the correct boolean value though: `include_archived_lists=false`. I assume the app just ignores the param right now.

  9. Daily estimate totals on "Due tasks" screen

    I didn't notice until today that you can estimate tasks using #30m etc. Awesome! But how about showing the total estimate for the day in the Due tasks search? I like to divide my day up into a certain amount of time for different lists (Work, Home, etc) and having the total amount of time for the day under each list would save lots of time of adding it up manually.

  10. Easy bookmarking to list during web browsing

    Although [Checkvist Bookmarklet](https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/checkvist-bookmarklet/pheahjlflgbnajeilgglgcdlbkdckamf?hl=en) does provide the basic feature, it lacks polish. When I want to save a bookmark, I want saving it for later to be as [friction-free](https://www.uxpin.com/studio/blog/kill-friction-before-it-kills-your-ux/) as the Pocket Chrome extension.

    With Pocket, I click the Pocket logo (effectively a button) and it saves the url to Pocket. One click and done. [No thought](https://www.sensible.com/dmmt.html) required. A popup then appears allowing me to add tags, if I want.

    With the Checkvist Bookmarklet, I see the icon in a similar spot (to the right of my address bar), however, clicking it does not save…

  11. Allow multiple undo for all actions

    Kirill, I'm finally adding my idea from the post at https://checkvist.uservoice.com/forums/2121-general/suggestions/116119-multiple-undo-s

    Apply Undo to every action, and state the action being undone in an overlay like you see when you delete or import tasks.

    An example from something that's affected me would be to undo changing the order of nesting of items. On complex lists, it can be nearly impossible to deduce the previous context of an item accidentally moved.

  12. Identify tasks vs informational items

    Create a new "Priority" color that indicates an informational item, like light grey.

    I often create a "task" to keep a group of notes together that can't be forgotten. Often times this is just informational data for projects. When prioritizing tasks the informational tasks look like everything else. A subdued color would visually indicate to me the item is not a task, but only informational.

  13. Sorting of tasks on Due page is unclear

    First sorting criteria is by due, of course.

    Then, should sort according to the order of tasks in the list when grouping by list is enabled, or should sort by updated_at when the grouping is disabled.

  14. Pomodoro and time tracking

    I know Checkvist already has support for specifying the time estimate, but it would be really cool to track actual time spent on a task. Alternatively, it would be equally cool to have estimation of number of pomodoro sessions required for each task, and then actual tracking of the pomodoros.

    Why I think this will be useful for others? Checkvist already is the best tool out there for the divide-and-conquer strategy for getting stuff done. Pomodoro or time tracking will take it to the next level of enabling focused work, which pomodoro seems to help with

  16. ASAP

    Have tasks due ASAP included when filtering for
    "due: Current Week"

    Also seems like it should show up when filtering for
    "due: Tomorrow"
    "due: Current Month"
    and maybe also when filtering for
    "due: next Week"
    "due: next Month"

    I could see why some might not want it showing up when filtering for next week or next month, etc. but if a task is due ASAP then definitely it is one of the tasks due in the current week.

  17. An option for "local number only", when using "list style" = "Numbers"

    For deeply nested lists, the number becomes unbearably long:
    "1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.2.4.7. Football"

  18. Insert Link+ Google search

    Hello,

    In Google Docs, when select a text and insert a link,
    it does a google search and shows a pop-up with the top-three results,
    which is what we want anyway more than 90% of the time

    I demo this awesome feature here
    https://www.useloom.com/share/510d6103ce5f4c79b4418aab99ed3c84

    Would love to have this in checkvist

    This can be done via the Google Search API (https://developers.google.com/custom-search/json-api/v1/overview

  19. Filter by several words should work across item path

    I.e. for the structure:

    - A
    --- B
    ----- C

    Filter by "A C" should match

  20. Create Tag Calculation for Prices

    It would be nice to have a price\cost calculation just like the time calculation (progress counter). We could use a specific tag like #100$ or $100 in each item, and the sum total would appear on the parent item.
