  1. 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.

      • Simplify hierarchy hoisting with straightforward up-down navigation and breadcrumbs

        Limiting viewing context is, I think, a key feature in outlining. At the moment the 'hoisting' functionality is only half way there.

        What I'd like to see is a simple, persistent way to maintain isolation/focus on one part of the hierarchy, and then navigate upwards / downwards through an easy shortcut, without having to use the '...' button (whose functionality I find quite confusing...).

        I second the request for 'breadcrumbs' at the top.

        Workflowy does this sort of thing really elegantly, although the rest of its feature set and general usability is nowhere near a match for checkvist.

        • Add an option to show task hierarchies on search pages

          Currently when you search or display due tasks, or search for tasks - the tasks hierarchy is flatten on the search page. It would be great to have an ability to view task hierarchy itself, because in my example I've a lot of similarly named tasks but in different hierarchies.

            • Export and link a task or task hierarchy to a Youtrack / Jira issue

              When in a design meeting, freeform editing like in Checkvist is very useful, but it's a lot of work to copy and paste Checkvist text into the issue tracker. Exporting directly from Checkvist would be awesome. The "highest level" task should be the issue title and the child tasks should be added to the issue description.

              Exported tasks should be clearly marked and link to the corresponding Jira / Youtrack issue.

              • 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.

                    • Add checkboxes to the mobile version of the site so on a mobile device it is easy to close items.

                      On a mobile device, my primary use is to actually DO things on the list, so after I do them, I want to easily check them off.

                      • Tabbed checklists

                        I'd love to be able to have three or more lists open, see them all as tabs, and switch back and forth with a single click . . . just like a modern browser.

                        And I'd *really* love to be able to save a configuration of which set of lists open upon startup . . . just like a modern browser.

                        ActionOutline has tabbed lists, but not the "homepage" configuration feature. For me, it's your closest rival.

                        • 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.

                          • Drag and Drop into Calendar view

                            It would be great to have a calendar view of the current week (or day, or month) next to the checklist (where the keyboard hints are currently displayed) and being able to drag and drop tasks into the calendar.
                            This calendar view would be awesome to schedule your day and week based on your priority, and have a quick view on what needs to be done today.
                            If you couple that with Google Calendar integration and a full iphone app, you've got yourself the dreamiest organizational tool of all times!

                                      • 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.

                                        • Search for tasks without due date

                                          I use the due dates to manage tasks across multiple lists. I worry that I may have missed adding a date to a task in one of my lists and, as a result, may never complete that item. It would be useful to have the ability to search across all lists for all items that do not have due dates assigned.
