  1. Make a list with marked free dates

    When I got asked for available dates i have to go to pocket informant and write down the free dates on a paper note or notepad-ish thing.
    It would be nice to make a kind of datelist from within pocket informant where you can assign a date (part of a day) to the clipboard so you can copy that in whatsapp or email.

      • 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.

        • Option to show time bars in Agenda views

          I would love the option to add time bars (like in week view) to all agenda views. This would make them much more usable for me.

          I'm thinking:
          Agenda calendar view
          The day view when you pull up a day inside of Week view
          Focus view
          Etc. — anywhere that agenda-style views are used

          • Option to show free time blocks in agenda views

            Pod calendar app does this beautifully. Between agenda items separated by a time gap, a small gap is displayed showing how long the free time block is. I find this to be incredibly useful.

            • Create emails from tasks and track as notes attached to the tasks

              Notes and emails from Tasks. I would like the capability to generate an email from a task and retain the email as an attached note to the task. Multiple emails and corresponding notes would need to be supported. By making a copy of the outbound email, no linkage to email needs to be retained. Adding just notes to a task as separate notes should also be supported.

              Tasks to Notes. This capability would be related to the above and allow tasks to be created in notes. I often identify tasks in notes narratives. Having the ability to create a task…

              • Adjust event alarms to timezone

                I just learned from support that by design the alarms don't follow time zones. The events will, but not alarms. The alarm is supposed to fire at the original time.
                So if you change your timezone the alarm for an event will go off at the wrong time!
                Please change that behavior!
                An alarm a specific time before an event should always go off at the same time before that event irrespective of the timezone.

                • Appointment alarm

                  Could you change the appointment alarm dial setting to be the same as the new keypad format for appointment times? The keypad format is much easier to use.

                    • Adding tags

                      Many to-do platforms allow the user to add tags in natural language. For example it may be a task to pick something up for a person. Maybe that person has a tag associated with their name. For example “John.” It would be nice to just type in the task field “pickup cake #john” and then have a task/event added that says pickup cake and the “John” tag is appended to it.

                      • user interface

                        This is directed at the Android development team.

                        Whatever upgrades are being planned, I'll only suggest that the developers respect the UI of the current version. One of Informant's features that, IMHO, sets it apart from other Android and iOS PIMs is its lack of subtlety. What I mean by this is that Informant doesn't suffer from the insufferable smugness of Jony Ive's vision of iOS and macOS. There is no unreadable light-grey text nor any "cuteness" to its design ethic. Informant is in your face, easily readable, and just works.

                        BTW, I've been a Mac user for over 30…

                        • The Option to Set Smart Lists for Parent Tasks

                          It would be great to see all of your Parent tasks in one place. Right now, if you set a smart list TYPE it only gives you the option of Task or Checklist. Please add Parent Tasks to this list of options as well. That way we could see all of our projects from the various Project Folders all in one list. This would really be helpful for weekly reviews.

                          • Filter Focus view by tags

                            It would be great to filter the tasks in the Focus view by tags so you can isolate which tasks you are able to see even further. This would really help you focus on what you want to do at a given time of day.

                                      • 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

                                        • Please allow more triggers to be shown in the drop down list

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