  1. better use of screen space in edit view

    I frequently change the setting for opening the editor vs viewer when tapping on a task, because neither is really ideal and I can't quite decide which is the least worst option! What I really want to be able to do is to go straight to editing mode, but to be able to see all or most of the fields on my screen at a glance without scrolling. At the moment the editor makes very poor use of screen space; on my large screen I could easily fit the whole task with plenty of space for tapping accurately on fields.

  2. Ability: Create Subtasks from a Widget

    Widgets enhance workflow by being handy, intuitive and efficient. Switching focus to the main app turns productive "quick thought" task creation into distracting flow interruption. Subtasks are a great tool, but right now their creation (or designation) is tedious because the process is inconvenient. Please have "Make this a Subtask" appear in the options list when a new task is created via the widget " + " symbol, and when an existing task is edited by tapping it in a widget. This is not really a new feature, it is just a way of providing sensibly efficient access to an…

  3. Ability to set up default filter / sort order for folder

    I use folders to organize my tasks to projects. When I show tasks in a folder, I want to see completed tasks as well. But folder filter hides them, so I have to set it manually for every new folder. It would be great to be able to set something like "default folder filter". And there could be similar option for sort order there.

  4. Filter by tags that 'Begins with...'

    At the moment I must specify exactly every tag that I want to include in the filter. In Toodledo, I only have to indicate the initial characters, so I can have a large number of tags with the same prefix. Could I do this in Ultimate ToDo as well.

    Eg. If I had tags: 'sfred', 'ssue', 'stony', I could set a filter for:
    Tag <begins with> 's
    '

    Then I can add new tags to my tasks ('sjoe', 'samir' etc) without having to remember to update all of the filters I might have.

    Toodledo also…

  6. add an option to sort tasks by folders according to Toodledo order

    In Toodledo folders can be ordered manually or alphabetically. The same order is shown in Ultimate To-Do List when looking at the Folder 'directory'. When sorting tasks by folder the current options are to sort A-Z or Z-A. Having the additional option to sort by folders according to Toodledo's order would allow to use the folder order as prioritisation when using folders for projects.

  7. Please make it possible to roll back to previous user interface. It was perfect and you downgraded it to the current, chaotic GUI.

    The old user interface was absolutely perfect, in my opinion.
    This new one represents for me such a downgrade that I'm considering alternatives to this App.
    I'm developing SW myself, but I'm old-fashioned and my mantra is "if it ain't broken, don't fix it".

  8. Ability to Remove Advanced Due Date Option

    I'm configured as Power User, which allows me to select what fields I want to see. I've never used Advanced, which tells whether the task can be done before or on the date due. I don't seem able to remove that feature,even though I find it rather useless. Please let me remove it.

  9. Un-tab the task/notes display - go back to inline or make it an option

    I'm pretty sure I'm asking for a reversion to previous display format. The current scheme makes it impossible to view an entire task at once, at a glance. Even worse, I can't even tell if there even IS a Note attached to a given Task, when looking at the fields view, or if the Note is empty. Presumably you changed it so the Note field could have a full screen to edit, but the effect of the tabbing option is to always hide the Note, every time I open a task. I suggest you make "Display Note inline with Task…

  10. Add option to not force mark subtasks complete when Parent task is completed.

    When marking a parent compete, all subtasks are forced complete. It makes sense in the parent/child scheme, which this feature is supposed to do, but I don't use it like that. I use it more like a reference point, so it should have independent marks that way. The way I have to do it now is display completed tasks and uncheck the subtasks.

  11. get To Do List to display outstanding tasks in status bar on phone/tablet reboot

    For those who like to see a reminder of outstanding tasks in the device's status bar, it is frustrating that they don't come back on reboot after a system crash or manual reboot.

  12. In the list view, place an icon on items that are set to show in a calendar.

    An icon on an item in the list setting that tells it is set to show in a calendar would be as useful as the ones that currently identify items with reminders and repeat settings.

  14. Different Nagging Intervals for Each Task

    Hi, I would like to put this into consideration: can you give the users the ability to set nagging reminders per-task instead of having a global setting for all tasks the user decides to be nagged of?
    Nagging reminders are a essential and very useful feature. I believe having the chance to choose different levels of Nagging would be very nice.

  16. Option "how long to keep completed tasks" for individual views/folders

    Simple, easy, full control of completed tasks for each view/folder.
    0 days = delete immediately (e.g. daily shopping list)
    1 to several days = to be able to undo completion for defined days
    never = do not delete at all (for list I reuse in future after completing all tasks, e.g. list of things to do and to pack before holidays)

  17. Really quick change of VIEW, ADD TASK and STARTUP SCREEN for WIDGET

    Below solution covers most of raised ideas for widget usage.
    Below philosophy is both the most flexible and really quick and comfortable for user I can image. It uses existing powerful filters/views/(and templates - that developers work on) for quickest selection.
    It gives both minimum clicks/touches and maximum flexibility = ultimate usability.


    1. VIEW CHANGE:
      1a. User in widget settings checks [v] views he wants for the widget
      1b. Widget has button "change view" that displays list of selected views to switch between quickly.
      1c. If only two view are activated for the widget, view switches between the two ones right…

  18. tapping and holding a task should open menu of options not needing to go to the 3 point button down

    just touching the task and holding. should be enough, it is very dysfunctional to do it in 2 steps, going down and taping again in the 3 button key, I think the old one was this way

  19. Undo last change

    Sometimes I miss-click things on my tiny smartphone screen.

    It would be great if there was an "Undo" function to undo the last (or maybe even last couple) changes made.
