  2. This is basically a way to cross-link tasks with the actions to be taken. Add the ability to link to any document on Mac/OS to enable quick navigation between Informant MacOS and the actual file. Quite often, I have tasks that require me to do something with one or more files on either my Mac or on a website. While I can add a link via the text editor, the process can be tedious. Either a drag and drop interface or even a Finder search-and-link feature would make this process so much easier.

  3. Allow the Sidebar in Task View be customized by the user.

    Allow the user to arrange the Sidebar to match their work process by hiding unused items and move the remaining item into an order that fits the user.

  4. I would like to switch off the colored indicators that show events in the Year view. All those shades of color is distracting when I am just trying to view the layout of multiple months at once.

  5. View that shows all tasks and notes for a selected task in one view. Sorted with a number of sort options but generally active and completed tasks in one list and notes in a second, each separately sortable/filterable. This will provide a holistic view of a project plus the history. If you implement project subfolders, then displaying the subfolders would be fantastic (I can do my own drilling, but having the option to have all folders opened would be very useful). If events can be assigned to projects (in the future), then including them would be great.

  6. It would be very helpful to be able to sort and hide items in the left hand panel including the smart filters.

  7. It would be nice to have the ability to separate projects into areas of focus with tags i.e. personal, work, etc.

  8. I am requesting an option to show only tasks with due dates and start time/end times in Calendar without the untimed tasks.

    These would almost appear to look like events in the calendar.

    The tasks with dates but no start and end times causes the calendar view to be messier and harder to read.

  9. Add ability to drag an email from browser or Outlook client onto Informant and create a Task. Simple and effective. Other products allow for this (ie Paperless).

    Currently w Informant Sync, can forward an email to my generated address and tweak the title, but not very natural. Dragging much easier.

  10. Simply would like to open the calendar in the menu bar using a shortcut, instead of having to drag my cursor to the icon in the menu bar.

  11. To change an event's time from AM to PM, you have to click the box and then type an A or a P. On the iOS version, you can switch it with a single tap. Please change the macOS version to a one-click toggle. Not a big deal, but probably also not a tough fix.

  12. Add multiple attachments to any note and have either icon or image displayed depending on the file type. Currently file addition is inconsistent and the images sometimes are overwritten by older images already captured. Specifically, I would like a separate indicator that attachments are attached outside the text area - click on the link to display the attachment in a native viewer.

  13. I often receive calendar invites via email that contains attachments such as PDFs. When I accept the invite, the event does show up in my Informant Mac calendar as expected. But the attachments do not. I wish to find the attachment in the calendar event. When I go to the MacOS Calendar, the attachments are there, but not in lnformant for the Mac.

  14. I would like the notification alert to show if the alert is for an event of a task.
    Both have similar dropdown menu options but the task menu also includes a "Complete" option.
    It would be convenient to know at a glance if the alert is a task or event so I can make the appropriate next action quicker for improved work flow.

  16. Send an email from a task and have the email linked to the task. Ideally, a separate list under the task that would show date time, recipient, and subject for one or more emails and drill down to the email body. I use email a lot when managing tasks when communicating out to team members, doing research, etc. Would be good to record these with the task to capture the information and track progress. Also, the ability to link an email received to a task to complete the picture. This capability is in iOS and I would like to have…

  17. I would like an option that would automatically add a note to dates. Notes would be visible and editable in the gutter region so that I can select a date then view tasks, events, linked notes, and the daily note, where the daily note displays the note in an editable form. I would use this to add activities completed and done for specific days. Having the note input always available makes notes per day simple to capture.

  18. Implement the 'customize the event/task display' feature from the iOS version. the feature allows for a cleaner, less distracting, task list.

  19. It would be great to have custom (definable) tab views with keyboard shortcuts. So I could have a month view with certain calendars on and no sidebar on one tab, and a focus view with tasks on another, and so on.

  20. It seems the Year View can only show a calendar year (Jan–Dec). There are countless times I would like to see 12 months that cross calendar years (I work in a university). Would it be possible to allow the Year View to simply scroll?
