  1. Integrate with Google Drive

    It'd be nice to be able to save lists as documents within Google Drive, with Checkvist showing up as 'handler' web app. I use a few web apps that provide this functionality.

    • Get rid of spacebar shortcut for expanding nodes

      The spacebar should be reserved for striking-out (completing) nodes, and nothing else. At the moment, if you want to strike-out a whole tree, you have to tap the spacebar once, which 'expands' the node, tap another time to strikeout the whole tree, and then hit the left arrow to recollapse it. This would be wholly unnecessary if collapsing / expanding was reserved for the left/right arrow keys, and not the spacebar.

        Data backup should allow to export attachments/uploaded files as well

        • Task weight

          One of the things I was looking for when I started using Checkvist is a simple but working progress bar. I think one of the few things lacking is a way to assign more or less weight to each task.
          There are many ways to implement this, I am sure, but a simple one would be having 3 levels of priority:
          high(x2) - normal (x1) - low (x0.5)

          If you have one High priority task and two Normal tasks and you complete the high priority one, then the task bar would move to 50% done, nor 33%.

          • Progress bar in list view

            It would be nice to see a progress bar or % done when you open up a list instead of only seeing the progress bar in the lists overview / checklists#main.

            • Make copy command also copy contained text to clipboard, or add a command for this

              I use some of my lists to store templates (e.g. a Gemfile full of commonly used gems), etc, and would love to be able to copy this without having to double-click into the list item to do so.

              • UI cusomization schemes

                In color settings I should be able to select a color theme, like Zenburn, Solarized, Dark, where whole UI will be perfectly polished, to work with that theme.

                • iCal feed for specific Lists/Branches/Nodes

                  I manage many different projects with Checkvist, most of which are sub-nodes/branches of a main list (to keep list management sane).

                  As such, a single global iCal feed of all tasks in all lists can easily have too much "noise" to be useful for visualizing due dates for a project on a calendar.

                  It would be fantastic if we could generate an iCal feed for a specific list or branch of a list. Then, only the sub-tasks of the selected list/node with due dates would be displayed in the calendar.

                  This would make Checkvist's calendar integration much more usable.

                  • Email in tasks to be children of a specific task

                    Right now we can e-mail tasks to specific lists, which is great.

                    The catch is that the tasks appear at the top of the given list, which is rarely where a new task belongs.

                    They often belong (for me at least) as child tasks of some other task (i.e. some kind of random to-do parent task).

                    Could the current e-mail address scheme be modified so that it would accept "post+(secrecyCode)+(listID)+(taskID)@checkvist.com"?

                    • Add folder structure for lists

                      I know this has been brought up before, but the addition of a folder structure for lists would be immensely helpful. I realize you answer is to tag the lists, and I have, but when you have many lists, it is just completely disorganized. I have created a checklist of checklists, and I know how to link them, but this still does not address the disorganized mess of checklists. I have even created a naming scheme to organize my lists in a logical order. I am no programmer, nor do I pretend to be, but I would think this would…

                          I'm on an iPad 2 with ios8. I prefer chrome as my browser, but when I go to m.checkvist.com, the site doesn't load. Works fine in safari, but safari isn't chrome.

                          • Scroll tasklist by `Shift+Up/Down` pressing

                            Like ctrl+up/down scrolling in sublime text - very handy because when you type near the border of the document you can scroll and see further without the need of leaving the keyboard to touch the mouse and without moving the cursor from what you are typing

                            • User-Specific Prioritization

                              I think this is the last "dimension" or characteristic/property tweak that I really would need Checkvist to adopt in order to start using it more widely within the various companies I'm involved with. The issue right now, is that everything is shared on a given list, with very little user-specific customization or prioritization. So I can prioritize the list (via ordering, colors, etc) the way I see fit, but if it's a list that many people are working on (via assigned tasks and subtasks, for example) this breaks down. If there's one thing I've learned, it's that the only way…

                              • Complete, Comment on assigned tasks via email reply for non-checkvist users

                                The vast majority of use cases, where checkvist is used collaboratively, will be that one or multiple people use checkvist while one or multiple people don't (or don't yet). For these situations, the only model that I've seen work well, is to allow the passive participants to "use" checkvist from the comfort of their own inboxes. Our inboxes are where most of us live, and for teams with different workflows, or even more commonly for that one-off-task you want to assign to someone that doesn't use checkvist, there should be an option for assignees to comment on and complete (and…

                                  • emoji support

                                    Users would be amazed if you support emojis as Github does e.g. in their commits (see http://www.emoji-cheat-sheet.com). The ability to express emotions in a checkvist line makes editing tons more fun.

                                      I have noticed when using the print-ready option, the text size is determined by the longest line of text. This means when printing multiple different lists, each one prints at a different scale or font size....
                                      It would be great to be able to print at a given font size...
                                      Of provide some other work around.

                                      • Land focus on the link subject instead of the whole link while using bookmarklet

                                        There could be a switcher to choose freely between those two.
                                        See how it could look like: http://screencast.com/t/I79mX38L

                                        • Add the ability to specify a maximum priority, rather than having to search for one priority at a time

                                          When you search for a priority, you have to search for priority:[number], and then you only get the results for that number. If, for example, I search for priority:2, I get the priority 2 items, but not the priority 1 items. I would like to be able to use a query like "priority <=2" to return priority 1 and 2 items.

                                          Adding boolean search would help, because then I would be able to search "priority 1 AND priority 2", but this would be more convenient when I'm looking for, say, items of priority 4 and above.
