  1. Have the ability to link to a document on Mac

    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.

  2. Customizable Sidebars

    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. Year View - Switch On & Off Showing Events

    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. Consolidated Project View showing tasks and notes for a project (and eventually events)

    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. Dark Mode

    A "dark mode" would be great for Mac OS as it's been integrated for the iOS side.

  7. Tags for Projects

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

  8. Sorting Smart Filters

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

  10. AM/PM toggle with one click

    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.

  11. Add keyboard shortcut to trigger the calendar in the menu bar

    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.

  12. Send email from tasks / link email to tasks

    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…

  13. Attachments for Notes

    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.

  14. Tasks with due dates and start time/end times in Calendar option.

    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.

  16. custom tab views

    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.

  17. Possibility to move Task/Event-Editwindow

    It would be helpful if you could move the appointment window for tasks or events freely on the screen.
    At the moment it is firmly anchored in one position

  20. Scrolling Year View

    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?
