  1. 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.

    • habits

      a habit tracking part of task view would be awesome:
      creating a daily task as a "habit" by an "is this a habit?" question for making some habit lists.
      ticking daily habits and workouts.
      as a weekly monthly and such periodic statistical analyse of daily completed habits on some beautiful graphs
      and this can be a buyable feature in informant & informant5

      • Automatically bring overdue items to next due date (optional due)

        Set a secondary due date on a task that the task reverts to when the primary due date passes.

        • Like to be able to color the background in the weekdays in the standard week view

          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

          • Allow me to select which calendars appear in the Apple Watch complication

            The default Apple calendar Watch app lets me choose which calendars appear on my watch. Informant forces me to use all of my calendars. So, appointments for calendars that I don't want on my watch face pop up there. (For example, I want to be able to reference my son's university class schedule, but I don't want to see it in my watch complication.) For that reason, I'm not using your complication. Please give us this flexibility. Thanks.

            • Improve searching capability

              Improve searching capability.
              1) Greater date range options, including ALL..
              2) Word search vs Sentence search. Just like iOS Contact search, each word to be treated separately (eg "dinner smiths" searches any instance of "dinner" AND any instance of "smiths" anywhere within any item). Other times we may really want to treat the search string as a sentence (actually searching for "dinner smiths"). So an option to do one or the other would be great. Otherwise, Word search is definitely more useful and should be default.

                  • Bookmarked Locations

                    If you write in the location field the first suggestions should be the bookmarked locations. Unfortunately this does not happen and you need to enter in the map then click on the bookmarks and select the location. Moreover the menu containing the bookmared locations is not sortable so you cannot organize the most frequent at the top

                      • Shortcuts for views

                        I often change between 'week' and 'agenda' views. I want one button for week and one button for agenda. Essentially - a one-click way of accessing 'week', 'agenda', or any other view the user might want.

                            Please add the calendar side bar back into the week view. You removed it in 4.0, then re-added it after customer feedback. Please re-add it to 5.0.

                              • 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.

                                  Allow auto snooze for events. Right now if you do not hear the alarm you will miss an appointment. Allow auto snooze so that until you acknowledge the alarm it will continue to automatically snooze for you.

                                      • Automatically backup to Dropbox

                                        Create a setting in Backup/Restore to give the option to automatically save a backup to Dropbox rather than iCloud.
