Now I have a sweet workflow: i) type alt+space ii) write the task and hit enter iii) close the window and return to what I was doing.
The workaround is as follows. Firstly, I use AHK/keyboardmaestro to do step 1 to 4 below.
1. open terminal window
2. type cd /Users/jl/Dropbox/PlainText/2checkvist
3. type touch ".txt"
4. press left arrow five times
5. I can type something, hit enter and then exit the terminal window.
After it's typed in I can return to what I was doing. What happens after a while is an IFTT.com recipe triggers because any new file in the folder /2checkvist will be sent as an email from my gmail. The to-adress is pre-set and the email subject=filename without txt extension. Bonus: I'm able to double check in the sent folder my gmail if I am paranoid. Of course I can add ^tomorrow #errands to the text files name and thus get due date and tags.
When I move to windows (soon) I can share the AHK script, it will be simple. For now, I use a mac and here is the keyboardmaestro program https://cl.ly/0n3n0B2b0T0V
Detail, if I wanted to use notes, I would instead type echo "notes">'filename here.txt' so that step 3 would be to type echo "" >'.txt'

We also have a separate feature pool for it:
Do you have any estimated date?
Really good and useful request.
Regarding accidental data loss: Checkvist Pro account gives you up to 10 daily backups of all your lists. Not the same, but may help in some cases.
Good one, will be implemented eventually.
I would like saved search to work like *perspectives* in OmniFocus. To see uses of that, there are lots of posts on it just googling "perspectives omnifocus", for example:
Kirill, regarding your workaround: start dates are not necessarily used to tell me when I *have* to start working, but rather when I *could* be starting to work on it. (For example: I *cannot* call the bank before monday, so my task "call bank" should not appear on my list until monday.)
This would be the same as "invalidating" a task—but until a given date. Right?
We are testing integration with Evernote via Zapier: https://plus.google.com/b/114021845786371597651/+Checkvist/posts/SoiDZevJKdZ
We would really want to implement this in a new mobile HTML5 app for iphone/android devices first.
