  1. Keyboard Navigation in DueDate-Calendar, increment/decrement due

    Checkvist is great because of easy Keyboard navigation! Everytime I press "dd", I am surprised that I cannot navigate with my keyboard within the calendar to chose the date. I sort of expect CTRL or ALT plus arrows.

      • make server software available

        It would be nice to be able to download the server software. This could be especially useful for businesses.

          • Easy linking to existing lists and tasks

            We already allow to create links to tasks and lists using HTML syntax, using smart syntax [link: text|URL] and [list: text|istID].

            But it is not very easy to find out the URL of the target task/link.
            For a task, it requires enabling "show details" mode and mouse hovering on the date of the last task modification.

            We should provide more easy way for creating links to other lists/tasks, probably with completion by name.

            • Integrate with Google Tasks

              Google tasks API: https://developers.google.com/google-apps/tasks/

              It'd be great to have the excellent Checkvist interface to manipulate the Google Tasks items. I never used it because the interface is not really great.

                  • Add default settings for new lists: numbering, hide completed and others.

                    I tend to create a lot of lists for short projects or just for days of my life. And I hate to always remember to go and configure settings the same way.

                    • Multiselect, merge and split successive tasks

                      Merge and Multiselect Problem:
                      Task x is Call Mike,
                      Task y is Call John and
                      Task z is Call Cathy.

                      What you want to do is merge these tasks. The way to do this should be to multi-select task x, y and z and press "mm" (for example) and tasks x, y and z are merged into one task ("Call Mike Call John Call Cathy")

                      Split Problem:
                      Task x is "Call Mike Call John Call Cathy." You want to break task x into three separate tasks. They way to do this should be to go to the end of "Call…

                      • Add the functionality of putting tasks/lists in folders

                        I feel that it would be more organized if users could drop and drag or use a dropdown list to put items in folders.

                        • Custom Fields/Attributes for tasks.

                          Allow users to create custom fields/attributes they require for their tasks. Some users might like to assign each task with a Start Date and End Date, but someone would only prefer to have a Progress or Category attribute for each task.

                              I like to track status updates of my tasks through the notes and having the newest one on top would help.

                              • 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.

                                • 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.

                                      So we’re going to implement the in-list search (aka live filtering) for notes, when all notes are shown (when you select the “Show all notes” option from the “expand/collapse” menu).

                                    • Control sharing of individual checklist items

                                      So that I can have one checklist that I can share with others and still have some private TODOs within

                                      • 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…

                                        • Long desc on list

                                          Allow a long description or note are to be added to the list, not individual items, so it persists rather than losing notes when I finish the task they're mapped to. Also easier to fit with Scott Belsky's Action Steps, Ref and Backburner method.
