Good one, will be implemented eventually.

Thanks a lot for the suggestion - it really makes sense. We'll definitely consider the possibility to create iCalendar links for saved searches, when we'll start working on this feature.
Regarding saved filters - there is a hidden feature which allows to do this.
You can create custom URLs which include a filter, for instance:
Obviously, this is not a solution, but a workaround, because this information is fixed in the URL and is not updated.
Jacob, thanks for the suggestion :)
Joseph, thanks for the suggestion. May I ask you, what kind of saved searches you're using this way?
Ben, thanks for the suggestion. It is actually how we think to implement this.
Mark, thanks for the clarification. It really makes sense.
Hello John, 'mm' is a different feature than this one. Maybe, create another issue?
We've recently released a new version of m.checkvist.com where we've removed some glitches regarding accidental moves in the list. Could you please take a look and add a comment if the behaviour is improved or not for you?
The related blog post is: http://blog.checkvist.com/post/170078871338/201801-welcome-the-first-update
An alternative implementation approach:
I would rather prefer something like this: select the node(s) to move (The move command may be provided on the bottom actionbar, or may be a long touch should do. Your call) , then scroll to a node below which you want your selected nodes, and then tap on that node.
This approach enables moving multiple nodes at a time, when and if such an extension is desired. Further, you may be even able to move the node to another list, though I agree that would require extra architecture.
Firefox: DnD works together with scrolling - totally unusable
The problem with move via DnD also mentioned here: https://plus.google.com/+KirillMaximov/posts/3TRPWo2JtzD
Hi Per Enochsson,
Thanks, please let us know if there are still problems.
Thanks for the comment, Per Enochsson! May I ask you which mobile device do you use? Honestly, I haven't met a problem with accidental item moving for a while - we made some timing tweaks there.
Mark, thanks a lot for the suggestion.
On the other hand, if we provide grab-bars, they will always occupy the place on the screen, even when moving items is not planned. What do you think?
Non-adequate move is obviously a bug, probably we have to tune timeouts in this place. Thanks for pointing out!
Thanks for the suggestion. Maybe you're right, a shortcut like 'gd' would work for this. We also have 'hh' and 'tt' shortcuts with the same logic, and gh and gt would work for them as well.
We'll see if we'll manage to add it to one of the next updates :)
We've just released dark Darcula scheme, you can try it from the profile page.
There is a detailed instructions from B Farnsworth, how to implement this using Autohotkey:
Thanks for the suggestion :)

A note – checkvist provides a simple way to create links to other lists. To do this, start adding or editing a list item, and type lst: in the list item text. Read more about other tricks here: http://checkvist.tumblr.com/post/55179489998/a-quick-note-on-using-checkvist-for-online-research

Hi Chris, thanks for the comment and for the reference to leoeditor - we'll take a look :)
It is doable to implement this feature "the right way", but it is rather resource-heavy, and we don't have much resources at hand yet :)
Given that we have to finalize our mobile app, we have to postpone this feature so far (despite that we already have a Checkvist outline for the implementation plan).
Thanks for the comment, I think we'll try to disallow circular references.
Thanks for your comment. I suppose regarding hard link/soft link issue - probably there won't be a difference in implementation, all links will be soft. Unfortunately, the current data structure in Checkvist does not allow hard links, because each item is coupled with its list. Of course, there will be an indicator where the 'master' item is located in UI.
Thanks again for the comment,
I had to google conref, and yes, looks like similar to it.
@EHansen I've updated the name of this request so it better reflects the idea behind. Thanks for the suggestion!
Thanks everyone for the comments and suggestions for this feature.
So far, I cannot name any estimates when we will start working on this - but definitely not before the coming winter. Not because we don't consider it important - but because there are more important tasks we have to solve.
Unfortunately, this task is not in our nearest plans.
We consider implementing Zoom feature before this one: https://checkvist.uservoice.com/forums/2121-general/suggestions/898937-zoom-and-view-features
We also plan to provide a possibility to allow easy linking between lists:
Hi, Could you please provide a sample of text item where the problem reproduces?
Have you considered how to add new items with your approach?
Another way to make a note is to separate a note with a separator in the list, like in this list: https://checkvist.com/checklists/630571
Don't quite understand, why cannot you use existing items and notes for this?
We thought about providing some kind of "Pages" as items, which would have large volumes of texts and would have rich text editor, but this is mostly visual issue. Currently, you can have ~64K of text in the item/note.
I've just tried to reproduce the problem, but so far it works for me. An arrow on the left, near "How to use this app" title returns to the previous page. Unfortunately, I don't have iPad at hand, but it works on the iPhone. Should investigate more :(
Sorry for the problem. Could it be that Markdown support is disabled in your lists? Please check it in the Options popup menu ('oo' keyboard shortcut).

Dear Adrian, thanks for giving your vote to this issue! We’ll try hard to keep the user interface simple – promise!
@Marica Thanks for the suggestion. If it would not be possible to take votes back and vote for another request - this would make more sense. People are free to decide what to use their votes for.
At the moment Checkvist is not that simple as we want it to be and having a permanent reminder of that on the top of UserVoice is not a bad thing :) And yes, we have plans to make the situation better, though it is a tough task.
Thank you all! We're trying to do our best to keep Checkvist simple but powerful.
Ahoj, sorry for the problem.
Checkvist keeps the old entered text until it is sure the text is properly saved.
Possibly, this logic fails at some point and text is kept even after the item has been added successfully.
Could you send us logs from the app when this is happening? To do it:
- Go to user profile page
- Set "Debug session is active" checkbox
- Reproduce the problem
- On the same profile page, click "Send logs to developers" link
- Write us about it, so we could know what to look at the logs.
Hello, thanks for the suggestion.
It is already possible to show notes for an item. You can press arrow right to do it.
If you want to see all notes for all items, press 'ec' keyboard shortcut, and select the corresponding item from the list with keyboard.
Would it work for you?
Thanks for the comment,
Could you please let me know what kind of HTTP requests are sent too often? In general, Checkvist should update data incrementally, only for the changed lists.
A possible solution - invoke an alternative of 'mm' command, select target list (with option 'current') and select target anchor (so the task will be under the anchor). Both selectors should allow to filter item at least by text.
Thanks, good idea!
We don't use Uservoice statuses actively. This particular feature is not trivial to implement, so we'd want to see some support from other users as well. We should very carefully choose which task to do.
Hope you understand :)
Thanks for the suggestion. It makes sense, and strange that it was not requested before.
At the moment such feature can be implemented only for repeating tasks, because only for them we have an interface where such status can be edited.
