  1. Set alarm to repeat every minute

    Please bring back the ability to set an alarm to nag at multiple intervals. I miss a lot of reminders because they only sound the alarm once.

  3. 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.

  4. Task sharing

    A great feature already is that we can send a task via email and delegate or ask for an update, I use this all the time and it works well. It would be great if it was built in within through the interface via chat/time stamped notes. One example product is Producteev that works like that and its a good tool but then it doesn't have the great features that Informant boasts of.

  7. Option to show event location in Watch complication

    I primarily use my watch to assist with managing my time during the day - particulalry keeping track of my appointments. So it is essential that I be able to see at a glance location of my next appointment - or that of another later in the day via Time Travel.

    On the other hand, I imagine that some folks would prefer more details about their events... so please give user the option to include/exclude the location.

  8. Ability to see appointment notes in day, week column view

    Ability to see calendar event notes in day and week column views. As the time scale is expanded, more of the note would become visible.

  9. redo/undo

    A redo/undo function in the notes is important, because currently is it not possible to undo any modifications on notes.

  10. ICON TRAY REVISION REQUEST * *

    I much preferred the format of the Icon Tray in Pocket Informant 4, where there were static icons on the bottom, some expanded to offer other choices, and the whole thing slid L<>R to show more options. The main "pro" being that icons were always in the same place and it was much easier to navigate that way.

    The current tray / action items are so very difficult to navigate, so I hope this is a project that's on your radar if not already in the works.

    When you do that project, please make sure there's a dedicated icon for…

  11. A Smart Filter Property of "Location"

    Having a Smart Filter Property of "Location" would allow tasks to only be displayed when the device is physically at, or within a radius of, an actual GPS location

  12. Reorder icons IPhone X

    Whether in minimized (one line of icons) or maximized (2 lines), it should be possible to alter the order of icons across screen bottom. This will help left handed and one handed users.

  13. Day and date row in Agenda View about colors

    If we go to Settings, Look and Colors, Colors : we have “week end”, and it fill in a part of the row with a specific color (for example “orange”).
    You could add “working days” so we could choose “light blue” , for example, and it would be useful to make clearer and more visible the days and the dates in the “Agenda view” (you already have that feature but it is only for “month view”).
    In fact at the moment the days rows (the grey ones) between the several events and tasks are too confusing and not delimited enough…

  14. Jump to any date in Focus View

    Pressing the today button in Focus View jumps to the current date when viewing some other date. But it does nothing when already viewing the current date. Please make it display the date picker instead. There is no way to jump to a distant date in Focus View.

  15. Make GMT at the top of the list

    In the country list, could you please add UTC? I have to make entries in GMT (=UTC). When I type GMT it will show the first country in the list (A....). I then have to scroll down 2/3 of the list to select GMT,

  17. SORT Option for Smart Filter Display

    Feature Request:
    A way to sort Smart Filters in the Smart Filter list

    Smart Filters are an awesome feature and my use of them is evolving. I want to keep the ones I created previously, but would like to be able to move (edit>drag) the newer ones to the top. This could also be achieved with a "sort by date created" option, but I'd prefer the control of sorting them manually, based on current need.

  18. Support iOS Shortcuts / APIs for x-callback url

    support/integrate the use of siri Shortcuts or to Shortcut, or at least give the opportunity to work with APIs and X-callback-urls to extend the automation possibilities for pro users like me. I really love Informant, it’s many years I choose to stay with you, but the new possibilities i see in this iOS integration (like Omnifocus, Things, Trello, Fantastical and other productivity apps) are offering it’s very tempting. Are you planning something?

  20. iPhone lock

    When having any one of the views open, it would be handy if there was a setting in PI to prevent the iOS auto screen lock to stop the lock process.
