  1. Navigation - One tap to switch between views

    I would like to be able to switch between task view and calendar view with a single tap, and I would like to swap between different calendar views with a single tap, without the current transition screen between the two taps. And please get rid of the animation

    • Email to Event/calendar

      Email conversion alone is what sold me on my subscription. Really surprised email to event/calendar is missing.

        • Attach PDF files

          For me this is a major shortcoming as I would like to add PDF relevant to a task.
          Both DropTask and 2Do offer this option

          • 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.

              Hej Alex,
              as a long user of Informant since the beginning of PI i am now very disappointed about the again missing possibility of creating a smart filter which regards to the TAG´s ... because, as already mentioned for years....
              Best regards

                • Drag and drop arrangement of tasks

                  As per GoTask, it makes sense in my head to be able to arrange tasks in ANY order I choose via DRAG and DROP. If baking a cake was the example of tasks to be completed, ALPHABETICAL arrangement would not work.. 'Preheating the oven' comes well before 'adding' ingredients. Other options may exist ( as per existing options within PI5) but D&D should be an option.

                  • 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

                    • 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!

                      • Offer Setting to Have subtasks always remain collapsed or expanded based on user preference

                        Add a setting that allows the user to determine if the subtasks show expanded or collapsed.

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

                                    • 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

                                      • swipe

                                        Task swipe options --
                                        I miss being able to customize the task actions visible when I swipe a task. -- In I5 a whole wheel of options pops up after you swipe a task and tap the ellipsis button.
                                        For me this means extra steps, a hunt through the wheel, and sometimes mis-taps. I tend to modify tasks in the same few ways, which aren't the defaults. I wish doing this was as quick and easy as in PI4.

                                        • Tips at startup

                                          Create a "Tips" interface that highlights new features and how to use them, one tip screen at a time, like some other apps do. Have it start automatically on each launch after an update until someone chooses"Don't Show Again". That would pop up a quick message telling them how to manually launch it in the future.

                                          The need for this became apparent when I wanted to use the date/time picker to add times in 5min intervals. After messaging support and getting instruction I went from hating the new interface to loving it.
