    • Multiple Icons

      I've been using the Font Awesome icon glyphs to great effect to differentiate list items as shown in the linked image.

      This has made it really user friendly for my clients to view a list I've shared with them and see the status of items, identify questions I have for them, and indicate when they've answered them in the list. I love it, and it's impressed clients.

      I'd like be able to include more than one icon on an item to expand on this (admittadly) improvised functionality, so I can indicate with just a single list item something that requires,…

        A solution to this would be a CSS like this:

        .tag.tag_question {visibility:hidden;position:absolute;}

        .tag.tag_question:before
        {content:“\f059”;font-family:FontAwesome;visibility:visible;}

        Thus each tag is converted to the icon with such a tag.

        Would it work for you?

      • Embed external image from cloud drive (e.g. Google Drive) and specify size

        Our problem is that 500MB is way too little for our needs. We would like to embed unlimited images within our items. Ideally, it would be great to be able to quickly embed external images directly from Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, or any URL for that matter. One necessary feature for this to work would be the option to quickly specify size of the embedded image (and have Checkvist remember the last size you entered).

        Currently, we are hacking size-specified images into items like this:

        <img src="https:url" width="300" height="400" />

        However, that is a tedious way to do it. It…

          • prio

            Hi guys!

            First of all, thank you for the Checkvist, i've been a fan for a year already.
            There's a lot about the mobile version, so i will add another "need".

            Priority.

            You see, as i print my daily tasks (and there are many within one day), the small and unnecessary ones like "finally order pizza" get above the real ones, like "compose the advertising budget".

            it would be really sweet to mark important tasks with prio 1 or 2 so that they would be shown on the list above.

            Thank you for considering this and have a nice day…

            • Sorting should ignore the separators (---)

              It currently sends the separators at the bottom, I'm guessing because they don't have a color. I think sorting should ignore them and leave them in the position they were in before the sort.

                It would be great if the API integration at Zapier.com had 'List Item completed' trigger.

                • Make due email properly display the items in italics/bold

                  Currently it simply displays what's in the item "as is" - e.g., the email shows * characters instead of making the word(s) within the item bold and/or italics.

                  • Hide list items with a future due date

                    This would be a per-list toggle, hiding any items with a future due date (or perhaps those beyond a configurable n days in the future).

                    This would make it more feasible to scatter due dates throughout a list that is also used for open-ended items.

                    This is somewhat related to https://checkvist.uservoice.com/forums/2121-general/suggestions/399064-postpone-task-hide-until-given-date. The per-list toggle idea is conceptually (and I would guess technically) simpler, and suits my use case, but I realise may not do everything people voting for the per-task-hiding are asking for.

                    • Multiline edit has the instruction line obstructing the data

                      I use multiline data entry in a cell in Checkvist. I noticed recently that when I come back again to edit the cell, the instruction line (Enter to start a new line, Cmd-Enter to complete) obstructs the data. I cannot see one line of the text. Normally I would expect the instruction line to be at the bottom of the data, but it is in the middle.

                      I guess this is because the instruction line has been hardcoded to be at the bottom of the default cell height, but my cell has more data than that. Here's a link to…

                      • More fluid synchronisation

                        At first it's nice being able to see which items have been updated on the server when creating or modifying them and seeing which have not yet been synced. But it also makes the app harder to use because I have to keep stopping thinking about what I'm doing and see where the system is at and what state it is in. I can't just ignore it because some things don't work properly until the sync has completed. For example, after creating a new item, no child items can be created on it until it turns black. I know it…

                          • YOU NEED AN UNDO BUTTON!!!!!

                            I was using this program for an outline for a research speech for school. I was almost finished when all the text was highlighted and something popped up and said "this task has been performed...press this button to undo". I pressed undo thinking it would unhighlight the text, but instead deleted it all!!! I frantically tried to get my speech back, but since there is not undo button, unlike other programs like Microsoft Word, I was unable to do anything. I spent a lot of time googling to find a solution to my problem, but found NOTHING. This research speech…

                            • Progress Bar Setting: Specify which tasks to track (by tier/indentation level or priority)

                              There are main tasks need to completed by a certain date, they could be deliverables or milestones, whatever we define them to be.

                              For some subtasks (usually indented below a task) are added as ideas for what could help them accomplish the main task, but they are not always prerequisites. When completed they count on the Progress Tracker, but that can be fool's gold...

                              • Add marker in Due List view for current task

                                I usually work in the Due List view showing tasks from multiple lists. I'd like to be able to mark my current task (ideally with a one-key command). This would help me keep focused as well as refocus when I have to skip to something else.

                                At this time, I apply use Priority 4 (key stroke: 4) to highlight the item, but I have to change the priority back or remove it before marking the item complete.

                                Here's a sample use case:
                                1. With Due List view showing, select the list item to make current
                                2. Press "c" or "cc" …

                                • deep link

                                  Deep Linking.
                                  Feel like this has been suggested probably but couldn't find it. I share lists with lots of people and they are quite large. I would like to give people a link to a specific section of my lists. IE already open to that section. Is this possible already? Anyone else think that would be useful?

                                  • More convenient text content selection

                                    Default selection of text content is convenient. However, there are some situations where is does not work I expect.

                                    1. If the content starts with a link `[...]`, default selection (= after pressing EE) misses the opening bracket.

                                    2. Default selection of a note does not select its content as it does for tasks.

                                    3. Pressing Strg+K without a selection should select the word if the cursor is placed inside the word (or at the word's boundary).

                                    • Allow to remove tags with multiple selection

                                      What can be a bit of a pain, though, is removing tags. It needs positioning the cursor in a large line of text. I would prefer pressing TT, move to the tag, and then press DELETE to remove it. (Everything but the last step is already implemented.) Other removals are already optimized (clear due, clear all tags).

                                      • move item up and down regardless of hierarchy level (similar to drag and drop)

                                        The current way to move items up and down (CTRL+up/down) is useful and should be kept like it is.

                                        But sometimes I want to move an item exactly to a position that has a different indent level.
                                        Let's say I have inserted a new item via email -> now it is on top of the list at level 1. I can't indent it to level 3 because there is no item above it and I even don't care if the correct indent level would be 3 or 4 or whatever.
                                        The easiest way is to just drag-and-drop it to the…

                                          Hello Chris,

                                          In your case, I’d suggest using cut/paste; i.e for your screenshot, you’d press Ctrl+X on the top-most item, press key down (to select parent item), and press Ctrl+V – it would paste and put the item at the top level under the parent. Would it work for you?

                                          Regards,

                                        • 0 votes
