  1. Create An Event From Email

    With a direct link between a calendar item and an email the information in an email can be found quicker and without having to search stacks of emails. Interesting in case of invitations for a meeting with added documents. Also emails can be converted directly into events.

  3. Please bring back the different color themes

    We are working on this for a future release. We want to make sure that the colored themes are not getting in the way of any other Informant functions and that the user interface will function the same regardless of the colors.

  5. Trigger Improvements Feature Parity with Informant 4 Templates

    Please add the following capabilities to Triggers

    Ability to create and save checklist in the trigger screen like in the old PI template.

    Ability to create a trigger from an existing item--Done in 5.2

    Ability for Triggers to support the same fields as the templates

    You can now set the "All Day" flag in Event Triggers (it's the first option in the Hour field) Done in 5.2

    Please add an option to "Triggers" where I can filter the trigger lists.

    The idea is, if you have a large number of Triggers, it will reduce the number of displayed Triggers.

  6. Accepting invites from PI

    Currently, I have to use the standard Apple Calendar app to accept or reject meeting requests.
    I would like:
    * to be able to do so directly from PI (like the standard app does - and several competitors)
    * to see the unanswered requests highlighted on the calendar
    * possibly to see the number of unanswered requests on the badge

  8. due date countdown

    In task view, give us an option to show the number of days until the due date or a countdown until due; essentially the opposite of # days overdue (instead of the date).
    With just the due date showing, I can't tell how many days until the due date unless I flip back to the calendar view and count them. I'd like to know how close it is to the due date for a given task. Thanks!

    Could you include a print month view, and not just an agenda view for printing?

  12. Sort tasks by two parameters - e.g. By priority then by project

    Sort tasks by two parameters - e.g. By priority then by project. This way tasks can be better visually separated. So eg high priory tasks would all be together but home verses work projects could be separated (and seen altogether because the projects would be coloured differently)

  13. Keep a journal

    Hi, thanks for this great product.

    For me, one thing is missing though: I would like to keep a journal of the daily activities I do each day. It would be nice to keep items in a calendar day's page for stuff I worked on for the day. As we speak, I use some other app where I can put stuff like:

    Request #1 - Script to delete computer objects in AD - 3 hours done
    Request #2 - Remove Duplicates from the report - 2 hours done
    Etc...

    A time keeping option would be very nice. If I had…

  15. Allow me to select which calendars appear in the Apple Watch complication

    The default Apple calendar Watch app lets me choose which calendars appear on my watch. Informant forces me to use all of my calendars. So, appointments for calendars that I don't want on my watch face pop up there. (For example, I want to be able to reference my son's university class schedule, but I don't want to see it in my watch complication.) For that reason, I'm not using your complication. Please give us this flexibility. Thanks.

  16. Print weekly layout

  18. habits

    A habit tracking part of the task view would be awesome:
    creating a daily task as a "habit" by an "is this a habit?" question for making some habit lists.
    ticking daily habits and workouts.

  19. Navigation - Force touch to Focus View and Saved Searches

    Would be great to see today view from force touch quick view.
    Also, could you keep a history of previous searches when opening the search window. I often have to search again for names or events and this would prevent having to enter the same text multiple times.
    Many thanks,
    Matt McKernan
