I suggest you/Search to vote ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Link todo items to events

    It would be great to be able to link a todo item to an event. That way when preparing for an event all the todos related to that event are ready at hand.

    Later when contact functionality is added to PI, it would be great to be able to assign todos to people as well.

    • Multi-Level Subtasks

      How many of you would like to have subproject to be able to subdivide tasks or goals into more specific subtasks? Subprojects would a excellent way to manage efficiently complexe tasks.

      Another way to get it working, would be to be able to link a project (or list) to a task or subtasks in another project. This is a simple implementation in terms of programming but would be a very big improvement.

      Don't you think?

      • Year planner

        Integrate a year planner / year view that shows events based on certain criteria (example: only show events longer than x days, only show events from calendar y, etc.) that allows drag and drop of (or another easy way to rearrange) these big time blocks.

        • Copy & Paste Events

          Select an event, push copy, and then go to the next day, and there should be a paste button for that day, and presto! the event with the exact same times shows up on the calendar. Great if you've got four irregular recurring events...

          • Create Event or Todo from email

            Often email content generates the need for some action. Would be productive to be able to create a calendar event or todo directly from the email with the subject and / or the body of the email in the event / todo notes.

            • Implement handwriting with a stylus

              I love the UI of PI but am really trying to get away from my Franklin Covey. I have tried multiple organizing/planning/todo apps and like the layout and easy of use of this one the best. However, it is missing one key feature for me - the ability to write using a stylus in the Notes section.

              There was an idea suggeted back in May 2009 that suggested this as well and the response was that it was planned. Any ideas on when that might be?

              • Email integration

                Why not integrate email into PI? Put it in like an added tab, so it is possible to watch your calender and directly switch to email without leaving PI. Then also add functionality like changing email into a task or event.
                Together with the possibility of linking files to events or tasks, it is virtually the only thing I miss in PI.

                    • Goals

                      Goals like Toodledo has in the Pro version--very helpful when looking at your life as a whole and whether or not your tasks match up to what your goals are.

                      • Customize icons & list order

                        I like the new icon feature. I have a couple ways that it could be improved.
                        1) allow the user to edit the order the icons appear in the list, so they can drag their most-used icons to the top.
                        2) allow the creation or editing of icons.

                        • attach a file to event or task

                          It would be nice to have a possibility to attach pdf/docx etc. simply documents which are needed for task/event...sometimes I need to have an email with files with me, so it would be great to have this feature in PI

                          • iCal direct sync

                            Hi,

                            I think that direct iCal sync is a must have for the PI.

                            I am a Mac user and I also use a mac at work. It is important for me and many colleagues to have direct sync to iCal, if we are going to be able to use PI.

                            • Manual task sorting (hold- drag &drop)

                              it would be great to have the ability to manually adjust the order of tasks (without assigned time & date) by means of drag and drop, instead of the current default alphabetical sorting.

                              • Shortcuts for date selection

                                Many PIMs have a list of short cuts for setting dates: 'today', 'tomorrow', and generally run out for a week, then have a final choice to set a 'custom' date. Please consider this instead of the rolodex date selector.

                                  Daily email of tasks & appointments

                                  PI online should incorporate a daily email, like google calendar and toodledo. Every morning it should send a single email that includes all pending tasks and all appointments for that day as of the time of the meeting. This functionality will ensure that users can get an overview of their day and are reminded of important appointments and tasks.

                                  • Assign multiple contexts to a task

                                    I'd like to be able to assign multiple contexts to any task so that task shows up when viewing a context. This would be useful if I have "work" and "home" contexts and I add a task that can be completed either at home or at work. Ot if I add a task called "buy AA batteries", I could assign "errands" and "computer" contexts and complete it if I'm at a store or buy it online.

                                        2. Move the Project view from inside Tasks to a top-level view on the iPad menu on the right hand side, between Calendar and Tasks.

                                        3. Give each project a Timeline view that shows you a view of everything relating to your project, so that you can track everything in one view. It closely resembles a filtered Agenda view and shows all the events, tasks and notes related to that project in chronological order.

                                        • Scroll bars in week view to show hidden events

                                          In week view, each day's window is small and can't tell if there are more unless one tries to scroll in tiny window. Put scroll bar icon on right side of the tiny window to indicate that there are more events that one needs to scroll to see.
