  1. Sidebar for Tags and Due Options

    Add a sidebar for filtering by Tags and Due Dates within the current list. It could look something like this:

    /=== Tags / Due Dates ==============
    |
    | Tags on this page:
    | [ ] #red x7
    | [ ] #yellow x3
    | [ ] #blue x1
    | [ ] #orange x4
    |
    | Due Date: [Dropdown Menu]
    | Completed Tasks: [Dropdown Menu]
    |
    \===================================

    Initially, nothing would be selected and all tasks would be shown as usual. For each tag, you can select either a checkmark or an X. If you have checked one or more tags, then only…

    • Kanban Boards for top level nodes

      It would be great if I could visualise my top level nodes next to each other instead of underneath each other.
      So that I can see all the sub-nodes as items on these vertical lists.

      They're called the Kanban approach, and I think it would be a great addition to CheckVist! It doesn't have to be as visual as trello, the current simple design could do! But you could use ⌘→ and ⌘← to move them between boards.

      • Dynaminc updating Due List

        I keep my Checkvist outline in one tab and my Due items in another tab, open at all times. When I add a new due item to my outline I need to refresh the tab with my due items list. Having it dynamically update would be great!

          • Sort by modified date (aka 'last update')

            It would be really helpful to have a 4th sort option within a list, to sort by modified date (aka 'last update'). This could apply only to the parent task level so that any details under that task would retain the custom order set by the user. Or have the option to apply the sort to 1, 2, or 3 levels deep to accommodate more working styles (even better).

            This would also add consistency to the experience since the lists themselves already support sorting by last update (both on the homepage and in the list navigation menu at the top…

            • View multiple lists (or focuses) at once in arrangable panels

              It would be nice if you could have multiple views open at once in the same tab, in some sort of arrangeable panels. I have many lists and I open them in separate tabs, but it would be nice to be able to view multiple lists at once in one tab.

              In my case, I could then see my brief/sparse daily todo, my long notes list, focused on this week's sub-item, and my primary project list open in the largest panel.

              From there you could drag items between lists etc.

              • Calendar task detail

                Would it be possible to include the full hierarchy of a task in the calendar feed? If the task in the calendar is a sub task the context is lost and I then need to open up the Checkvist website to understand what the task means. All this detail does not need to be in the calendar entry title - it could be in the notes. For example, I might have a list called Clients, then I might have a list of names under this, then under each name, a list of things that need to be done. If one…

                    • Allow assigning users not shared

                      Currently I'm only allowed to assign tasks to users I've shared with. I"d like to be able to assign tasks to anyone. Currently I have to use tags then convert to assignments when/if i share the list.

                            • Jump to main list items by typing their first letters

                              In Windows explorer when you are in a folder you can jump to a file simply by typing it's first letters. It would be nice if we could do this in our lists for main branches.
                              Suggestion:
                              Hit the semicolon key ";;" twice to call for this function (It can select the first item by default) then start typing.
                              Why double ";" key? because it won't interfere with any other keyboard shortcut and it's the default place for little finger.
                              Thank you

                                Tags can be added with or without caps... it's awful when items tagged as #important get lost because they were inadvertently tagged as #Important

                                    • First letter of Screen name as Avatar

                                      Hi not every body bother to go and get a Gravatar but it would be nice if you could set the first letter of screen name as a colorful avatar. like those on yahoo site comments. This way we don't have to wait for our teammates to get gravatar to become distinguishable without 'sd' shortcut

                                      • Inline Latex code preview

                                        IS this already supported? if not what are my best options/workarounds? maybe something with custom CSS or code ? (just trying to think outside the box)

                                        • Import from list/inline a list

                                          Context: When lists grow, it may be useful to break them into multiple lists. The symmetric operation would be merging a list into another.

                                          Breaking lists apart can be done with "move to another list". This operation could be extended with an option to insert a link to the destination in the source list.

                                          Merging is available in Checkvist only "from the other side": One needs to go to the other list and then use mm or the "copy/move to" dialog.

                                          I'd rather have an "inverse" of mm. Basically that's the "copy/move to" dialog as "copy/move from". It would insert…
