  1. Developing Project Management

    As a PI user for about 15 years, I have always wanted a more robust solution to projects imbedded in informant. This would include nested projects (projects and sub-projects), a dedicated area for projects separate from the tasks section, and the ability to directly create projects globally as I can create tasks, events, or notes.

    • 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,

      • 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

            • In list of projects be able to see an overdue count of tasks

              Very useful tip:
              for project management to see in screen of all projects list (Tasks -> Projects) not only summary task count in every project, but _also_sum_of_overdue_tasks_ for each project.

                    • redo/undo

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

                      • Ordering tasks manually, or with dependency (e.g. A has to happen before B)

                        It would be great to be able to order tasks so that things that have to happen in order will show up in order, beyond ranking by priority. Basically likes steps in a project: write grocery list, drive to store, shop, unpack, cook, host dinner.

                        • One touch select of single tag for filter in event/task editor

                          When editing an event or task or note and selecting the tags, the ability to quick select just one tag with one tap on the coloured icon. Even if other tags are selected, tapping the coloured spot of the tag should select that one tag, and deselect the rest (while tapping on the tag but not the actual coloured spot, doesn't allows multi select as per current behaviour). This is actually the way it currently works for filters (in Focus or Calendar views). The same behaviour for the Event/Task/Note editor would be appreciated.

                          • 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

                              • Task Tags appear in the order they were selected

                                When adding Tags to Tasks in Informant for macOS, Tags are saved in the order in which they were added. However, in iOS, Tags are saved in alphabetical order. It would be nice to have Tasks in iOS saved in the order in which they were selected instead of in alphabetical order.

                                  • Year View Plain View

                                    Please provide an option to turn off the heat signature look of the Year view.
                                    I prefer to see a yearly calendar view without color highlighting of the days.
                                    All of my days have heavy task loads and the whole year is a mass of red days.
                                    I desire a cleaner black on white view to scan and count days in the Year view.

                                      • Allow multiple default alarm times and ability to specify default alarms by calendar

                                        Two requests:
                                        1. Under view settings->Calendar view->Default calendar alarm: allow more than 1 default alarm (eg if you want 3 default alarms for 1 week, 1 day and 1 hour for every new event, it would allow setting more than one default alarm)
                                        2. For the same feature, it would be nice if under Calendars, Triggers and more -> Manage Calendars -> clicking on a specific calendar would allow you to set default alarms that would apply JUST to new events for that calendar and override the setting mentioned in #1.

                                        Thanks.

                                        • sending invitation through a Informant 5 keyboard app

                                          It would be nice to have the ability to bring up keyboard while working in any app ( similar to the app Thingthing or the popular Sunrise app ) and add the time slots for invitation.
