  1. Attach Documents

    Can you please add the ability to attach documents such as pdf and office files (Word, Excel) to Tasks and Notes. It’s great that you can already add photos and videos but documents would also be very handy. Thanks

    • Set alarm without due date

      It would be really nice to be able to separate alarms with Tasks from their due dates. In addition to setting alarms related to a due date, it would be nice to be able to set an alarm on an arbitrary date/time without requiring that a due date be set.

      • linking to multiple calendars

        My PI is linked to several family, personal and business calendars. As some appointments are not for every user of these calendars, I have to make an entry for every applicable calendar and in this way some events are displayed more than once in PI.
        It would be nice if an event can be linked to one or more linked calendars with check boxes in order to save the event in one or more calendars. Each event will now show up just once in PI.

        • Add alarm reminder option to voice notes

          Please include the ability to add an alarm to a recoded voice note to remind you, just as you can currently do with an Event or Task. There are times when it is quicker to record info rather than type it but you may still need a reminder to action your dictation at some point in the future. Thanks.

          • Link tasks and notes to the same project

            Within my projects I'd like to be able to see both the Tasks (as a ToDo list) and the notes (e.g. taken during a conference call) that relate to the same project. The comment function within the Tasks is too marginal, not easy to reach and with a less comfortable editor.

              • Toggle all tags off in filter selection

                You should be able to toggle all tags off when you are creating a new filter. The default is to have all tags checked which makes selecting a filter based on one tag a very long and tedious project.

                    In the search settings it would be nice to be able to search based on a date range the user picks instead of the preset ones available now.

                    • 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!

                        • Have alerts appear daily when active or overdue

                          Have an option to have a task alert appear daily at a specific time each day the task is active and also when overdue. the option should be selectable for specific tasks and not a blanket default.

                          This would allow daily reminders that a selected task is active not completed or overdue every day while in progress or overdue. This would provide aggressive notification during these two periods and simplify setting up something similar using the current capability where multiple alerts can be created.

                            • Create a Note from Email

                              Currently, I can create a task from my emails. I would also like the option to create a Note from my emails. Sometimes my emails are informational...like directions to the soccer fields, or agenda for a meeting, or brackets for the basketball tournament. For those, I'd like to be able to create a note and assign it to a particular date. In fact, if you gave me 3 options with each email...create an event, a task, or a note...I think that would be ideal

                                    It would be nice to have the ability to bring up keyboard while working in any app ( similar to the app Thingthing or the popular Sunrise app ) and add the time slots for invitation.

                                      Increase the number of triggers that can be listed in the New Event drop-down menu. Perhaps increase that to seven or eight?

                                        • Add INACTIVE/ACTIVE to Projects; Project View shows only ACTIVE Projects

                                          Develop a way for Informant show all projects and visually determine what projects are active and which ones are not. Status would be based on the status of the tasks
