  1. Introduce default collapse level for lists

    So if a user visits the list the first time, they see the list fully collapsed. The same applies to guest users who visit a published list

  2. Allow changing of font, at least to monospace

    Personally, I only want Normal and Monospace, since I have a lot of code snippets as outline items. But a nice parallel to the color option would be to have a number of fonts and some similar fast-key to cycle among them.

    I'm real close to ponying up for the premium option. This or offline access (if only read only) would do it for me.

  3. provide a shortcut to paste as sub-task

    Default Ctrl+V pastes as a peer, perhaps Ctrl+Shift+V to paste as a subordinate.

  4. More customizations (@import, JavaScript)

    In the customizations section, I'd like to (1) use the CSS @import rule, and (2) add custom JavaScript.

  5. Desktop app / node-webkit?

    Desktop app is a recurring topic, have you guys heard about node-webkit?
    I think you could make real desktop app with it fairly easily

  7. allow combination of checkboxes and numbered lists, as well as mix and match within a list

    Simply combine what you already have, so you can have both a checkbox and a numberlist as well as within a list have either/or (checkboxes on some items, numbers on others, nothing on some or combinations).

  8. Save to dropbox

    It would be cool to be able to save your checkvists or at least automatically export to dropbox or desktop.

    This way I could be secure that I had them elsewhere in plaintext and also edit them on the go and offline (and have changes synced back to checkvist)

  10. Sort by date added / reverse date added

    I'd like to be able to be able to (temporarily and permanently) sort lists by the date items were added. Also in reverse order.

    Similarly, it would be good to sort by last edited date (as opposed to created)

  11. Create list API

    It would be really useful to have an API that would allow us to create a new List based on a List Template (or another list). Similar to the "copy list" option currently available in the interface but via an API (maybe a simple html call), where you can specify the source List template, the name of the new list, and maybe even with who you want to share the list.

  12. Allow to sort items by their hierarchical positions in list on "Due" and "Search screens

    From the feedback:

    As far as I can tell, the items of a given list appear in global due/search results screens in the order in which they were created.

    It would be far more helpful if they appeared in those results in the order in which they presently appear in their list.

    I would like to be able to tag certain items and then keep an eye on them by using a web page with a URL like this:

    https://checkvist.com/search?what=%23tag_name

    (#tag_name is a demonstration tag.)

    In the underlying list (which might be quite large and complicated), those tagged items would…

  13. Parent task indicates child's due date

    Currently, if I view a collapsed list item containing a child list item with a due date, no due date is visible to indicate when a child list item is due. I need to expand the list item to see if any child items have a due date.

    I'd like to have the parent list item indicate the nearest due date assigned to a child list item. I think this would need to be done in a way that appears unique, different from the existing due date appearance, so if you have a due date on the parent task (i.e.,…

  14. Certain keyboard shortcuts work only for US keyboard

    The shortcuts '?' and '/' don't work on my Danish keyboard where I type shift-plus (to the right of the 0-key) and shirt-7, respectively to get them. when I switch to US-keyboard, they work as expected

    I like to arrange the notes I created for a task.
    I want to move notes up and down like it is possible with tasks.

  16. Sticky Header/Toolbar

    Header tools should stick (fixed position) to the top of the browser window so you don't have to keep scrolling up to flip between lists.

  18. use contentEditable instead of a textarea for editing things

    The fact that checkvist uses textareas for editing items inevitably leads to the layout getting messed up and ugly transitions between starting to edit and editing and between finishing editing and being able to continue usage. Please use contentEditable fields instead, so that browsing and editing become seamless. http://html5demos.com/contenteditable

  19. Show invalidated tasks when hide completed tasks selected

    This follows on from my previous suggestion:

    http://checkvist.uservoice.com/forums/2121-general/suggestions/3057069-do-not-show-invalidated-tasks-as-completed-on-list

    As 'invalidated tasks' are not tasks, I would like to be able to see them even when 'hide completed tasks' is checked. At present they are hidden when this option is selected.

    Hope that makes sense!

  20. UI should update faster during collaboration

    When several people work simultaneously on the same list, UI updates but with a noticeable delay, about 10 seconds. It would be nice to work collaboration more instant.
