    • 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?

      • allow manual drag and drop sorting of lists on the homepage.

        On the home page it would be nice if you could sort lists the way you want instead of just by name or last updated.

        For example, I have a list for each day of the week. I'd like to sort my lists in the order of the days of the week instead of using the workaround of adding a number to the beginning of the day.

          • Create a new "Done" Tasks view (Like the "Due" Tasks view)

            "Harvard Business School professor Teresa Amabile's research says keeping track of them will make you happier at work, more productive, and more motivated." (http://lifehacker.com/5958265).

            It would be great to have a "Done" Tasks view so you could see at a glance the things you accomplished Today, Yesterday, Last Week, Earlier; kind of like the opposite of the "Due" Tasks view.

            This new Done view would allow you at the end of the day to take a quick look at all the tasks you had completed during the day (or the previous day) aggregated across all of your task…

              • Add More Time Options on "Due" display

                It would be helpful to add more time options on "Due" outside of "tomorrow" and "later".

                My suggestion is to add "This week", "Next week", "This month" between "tomorrow" and "Later". Or anything better.

                In this way I can have more control on my schedule.

                Thanks for considering that.

                  Currently, you can use global search with due: week, due:month, due:next week, due: next month

                  Also, within a given list, you can resort tasks by due date – see ‘sort’ command in the list toolbar.

                • Print Output: set page break for specific hierarchy level

                  The idea is to have a setting like: make a page break before every level 1 (or level 2, 3,… and so on) item.

                  This would ease situations like a LEVEL 1 'headline' beeing printed on the bottom of a page but the content is shifted to the next page.

                  • Configure templates to create whole new checklists

                    It would be excellent to be able to create a template checklist. For programming tasks this might include "write database patches, write unit tests, write code, debug/test, release, document" etc. Each time you start a new piece of programming work, you could create a new checklist from the template (direct copy, with opportunity to change the title) and edit it as much as you like to suit the specific task you're undertaking.

                      In fact, this scenario already works with checkvist. See, you can copy a checklist as a whole (see the link in the toolbar). With the copy operation, you can reopen closed tasks in the target checklist. So, as long as you finished one checklist, just use is as a template for new one and use copy operation.

                    • add a toobar for commands

                      So users viewing on an iphone can edit their lists without the need of the keyboard, they can click Add node/move node.. etc. (With that I think it will work on iphone and be on the go friendly)

                      • Let clients comment, even in read only

                        I'd like to share my list with clients read only, so they know what I'm up to, but I'd also like them to comment on tasks at hand.
                        It would be great if they could leave a comment on a task, without having to log in. Just leave their email address and maybe some captcha anti-spam or something.

                        How does that sound?

                        • allow way to insert creation date as 'onward date'

                          How hard (and bothersome) when it says the task is overdue while I want to form creation date of each entry. I try hard to gag every entry with maroon tag that says boldly, "this is overdue" na, na, na.

                          I am on writing project, and in entry (first column I exported from OmniOutliner), I managed to imported OPML from my Mac Mini to XP. From OmniOutliner (for Mac only) I entered the title of the story I named back in 2003, but then I see almost all entries are tagged as overdue, which in fact it is just "creation…

                              First of all great product. Anyways there are 3 things that keeps me away from implementing checkvist to my entire organization:

This is not good for me because i have lists which contain tasks for multiple persons and i dont want everybody to see everybody's tasks but only the tasks that i have assigned to them
                              2)i'am not able to see a "task updated icon" for the tasks that have been modified by the people i have assigned…

                              • Allow local file link

                                I have some documents in local computer which is related to some lists. So I hope I could have an easy way to put them together.

                                I tried to input local file link like "file://c:|/documents/test.doc", but failed. I tried href tag but failed again.

                                So, now I can only leave the text "file://..." there.

                                Is it possible that you convert the local links as a link as well? You can disable executable extensions, thus no security problems.

                                This will be very helpful to me.

                                Thanks!

                                  • undo failed after emptying a parent item

                                    I had a subtree of tasks, and I set the parent item to empty string. (I meant to outdent the next item, but I didn't do that first.) Setting the parent to empty string was interpreted as "delete this whole tree", which I didn't want. I clicked undo at the top; the overlay changed to 'undoing'; and then nothing happened for a while. I reloaded the page, and the tree is still gone. First time I've lost data on checkvist :(

                                    • Shortcut for quick jumping to the item by typing its first characters

                                      Maybe this is already implemented, but I didn't find this feature. For example, I have huge plain list. It's annoying to fiddle around it with Up and Down keys (OK, PgUp, PgDown, Home and End helps a lot, but navigating big list is still a time consumpting business). So how about some sort of quick jumping?

                                      • OPML export does not work properly if an item has a greater than (">") symbol.

                                        OPML export does not work properly if an item has a greater than (">") symbol.

                                        (It is probably also be the case with a less than ("<") symbol too, I did not test that specifically.)

                                        The solution seems to be to replace the ">" symbol with "&gt;" when exporting to OPML.

                                        Presumably, the "<" symbol should also be replaced with "&lt;" when exporting to OPML too.

                                        • Allow setting of default export options

                                          I export to html fairly often so I can copy my notes into another program and flesh them out as text. Every time, I have to uncheck Task Status and frequently Notes as well. It would be nice to be able to set these as defaults.
