  1. Auto import all flagged mail

    I process mail in a mail client and flag those I need to return to.
    I would love it for all flagged ones (in all folders) to be automatically imported to tasks, in Inbox, thus achieving a single integrated place for all my tasks.

      • 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

          • smart filter - tag

            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
            Rolf

              • 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)

                • 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

                  • Left Bar in iPad's Task View

                    Please, reintroduce the permanent left bar letting chage us what we see (Inbox, Prjects, All Active, etc.) more quickly, or at least give a chance to keep it permanent or hidden. All the vast empty space gained on iPad is not used

                    • 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

                      • Make travel assist easier to access

                        Travel assist is found through settings>calendars, triggers, more>travel assist. IMO this is buried too deep. It should be available as a view picker button, please.

                          I would like to have a button in the main navigation for direct access to eMails (like for Contacts, Notes, Tasks and Focus).

                          • 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.

                              I always use the weekview in the seven day split I changed the background of the weekends but for the weekdays this is not possible. It does show on the month view but I would like a pastel colored background for the week/working days

                                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.

                                • 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…

                                  • 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!

                                    • Timebar in date picker

                                      Would be fantastic if you could find a way to add a timebar to the date picker showing free/busy time - just like the ones in top of cells in month view

                                      • 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.
