  1. View folder as Parent Task

    Forgive me if this has been requested previously.

    I have been using Folders in ULT to group tasks. I would like to be able to view the tasks in the widget GROUPED under the folder. (Showing the folder as a "parent" ) I realize that I could simply make these as sub-tasks, however these really are not sub-tasks.

    For example, I have been creating lists of house-cleaning chores and breaking them up into manageable blocks and assigning them to specific days. I'd like to be able to in the widget, display something like the following:

    Wednesday:
    □ task
    □ task …

  2. Ultimate To-Do List App on Garmin Fenix

    It would be wonderful to have a simple Ultimate To-Do List on the Garmin Fenix watch.
    Just to display, check complete and sync them. Entering tasks would not be needed.

  3. Make a Chrome extension

    I used an Android emulator to use your three pane app on my PC - and I liked it, but using an emulator to run an app is just way too unwieldy.

    I do need that bigger picture outline View for planning so have switched to the Gtasks app on Chrome for that and then sync back to use Ultimate on my smartphone.

    From what I've seen, however, the Ultimate app for tablet computers is superior do the Gtasks app for Chrome so you have it beat if you could port it over to Chrome. Any chance of this happening?

  4. zoom

    unless all that task and subtasks have something in common like a tag,context/folder there is no way to look at a task and its subtasks without looking at an unfiltered list which is too burdonsome to be useful.

    So would like to be able to "zoom" that is "focus" on one task with all its subtasks. If you have a long list, often subtasks are hidden by filters. so would be great if i could zoom on one task and see it and all subtasks and thus work on just that one project.

  5. Calculating event duration in Google Calendar integration

    Currently, the only way to show a block of time on Google Calendar from a UTDL tasks is for both the start time and the end times to be indicated. This is a difficult and time-consuming way to get a realistic-looking calendar from UTDL data. Much simpler if this could be calculated from the start time and the expected length of the test.

  6. Two way sync for Google Calendar (or a third party workaround)

    Posted on Google Groups:

    Hi everyone - I bought Ultimate To Do List a few weeks ago and love it. I tend to geek out with this stuff and this is the most complete app I have found for this purpose.

    I am syncing with Google, and Ultimate does that well with Tasks, and the one way sync with Google Calendar isn't horrible - but two way sync sure would be nice. Ultimate to do list forms a near perfect "database" for pending tasks, but the graphical planning you could do with Google Calendar - provided it could be made…

  8. Create a new task via voice with one tap (in german language)

    So far the Voice Commands are just in English. Having all Voice Commands in german language might be a long run aim.

    A very helpful first step would be to having the Option (as an android activity?) to enter a new task just by one tap and talking (in german).

    This would be extremely helpful!

  10. Add ability to clear due date when changing due date

    After selecting a few tasks, there is an option to change their due date using the context menu, but on the dialog appearing there is no possibility to clear the due date. It has to be done by editing the tasks one by one. Alternatively, a new menu item "Clear due date" could do...

  12. Add a way to prevent the tasker plugin from displaying an empty list

    In Tasker, I have a few location based events that pop up an UTD list when I arrive. I don't need them to pop up when they are empty. It would be very helpful to have a way (perhaps via a variable) to prevent the plugin from displaying an empty list

  13. Tasker plugin features

    Wanting to enhance tasker plugin features:

    * Can the add-in "trigger" use wildcards in task names (as opposed to an exact title)?
    * Can the add-in "trigger" use fields other than task name on completion or creation?
    * Can the add-in "action" store the output of a view into a variable as a list of task names? Or use search within the action for example?

  14. Make "optionally due" available as the default when I create a new repeating reminder.

    At least half of my repeating reminders are "optionally due". It would be handy if this were more easily available instead of being hidden under the "advanced options". Ideally I would like to be able to set it as the default option for repeating tasks.

  15. Add automatic backup of completed tasks to Evernote.

    I use Evernote to archive almost everything. It would be handy if my completed tasks could be automatically archived to Evernote.

  16. Add option to see indented subtasks, even if they are filtered out,but parent is not.

    I use the app the way, that my subtasks need to be completed to finish parent. But if I have two levels of subtasks and a subtask's subtasks are filtered out, not only do I not see them, it does not even show as having subtadks (only that it's being one.
    I would love to be able to see all subtasks to my tasks all the time immediately.

  17. Add 'priority and status' as display field option.

    Analogue to the 'folder and context' that is already available.

  19. Move all overdue tasks to today with a single button

    What I didn't do yesterday just moves forward to today. This happens to of us every day!
    Currently you must...
    Pull draw and select overdue items, then select one, then select all, then select change due date, then enter due date. Repetitive and that is what computers are good at... repetitive tasks!

  20. Change the colour of the Note tab, if the Note is populated.

    Although there is a little icon which shows if there is a Note attached to a task in the Task List view, the tab always looks the same in the Edit Task screen. The Note tab should be a different colour if the note is populated.
    I actually preferred the layout a few years ago, before the tabbed view, when the Note was always inline and there was never any question of whether or not it was populated. Adding the tabs broke that functionality. Please restore it, by indicating somehow, if there is anything in the Note field. Thanks!
