  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

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

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

    Very useful to get a reminder through email as well.

  7. 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!

  8. 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!

  10. Add a possibility to sort start time from early to late

    If Task View is sorted by START DATE like suggested in the 1MTD and MYN task management system by Linenberger ( MichaelLinenberger.com ) everything is fine with sorting order "newest first".
    It shows the tasks with newest start date first and at the very beginning the tasks with extra entry "START TIME".
    But these tasks with start times I do not want reverse sorted like it is now.
    It should be from morning to evening upwards.
    So please change that sorting behavior or add "start time" as criterion for sorting views.

    Example:
    1. Sort by Priority (highest first)
    2. Sort…

  11. Allow for slower voice commands

    When entering voice commands, if you don't speak rapidly and continuously, the tasks become impossible to enter more than simple task adds. Adding reminders, repetition or priority is difficult because it stops listening very quickly. Natural pausing are viewed as end of command. Maybe increase the end listen time? Or perhaps allow for follow on commands that are prompted?

  12. Colour "Due Today" dates Green

    Currently Overdue dates are Red and all other dates (Due Today/Future) are Grey.
    Could you change the colour of "Due Today" to Green so these dates stand out more in a list.
    There have been requests for more complex colour schemes which would also work but they would be more complex to implement.
    Hopefully this request would be relatively simple to implement but would make a big difference when viewing a list of tasks with differing dates.

    Thanks

  13. ifttt

    Could we get integration with IFTTT?
    http://ifttt.com
    This would expose Ultimate To-Do List to a broader audience and would expand your already wonderful feature set.

  14. Add option for new tasks in manual sort to be added to top instead of bottom of list

    I imagine any time you are adding a new task it is higher priority than the last one on your list, currently you have to immediately move the new one up from the bottom, I request there is an option to add all new tasks to the top instead of the bottom.

  15. Classify and Sort by Urgency + Importance

    I don't think the app really has Importance levels how I want, nor Urgency levels. It would be great to classify tasks this way and then sort by the combination of the two. Something like this, although a couple possibly should be moved around.

    Urgent/Important
    Urgent/Average Importance
    Urgent/Low Importance
    then
    Normal Ugency/Important
    Normal Urgency/Average Importance
    Normal Urgency/Low Importance
    then
    Low Urgency/Important
    Low Urgency/Average Importance
    Low Urgency/Low Importance

  16. Sort Within Priority Levels

    I tried the $2.99 sort add-on, but it doesn't do what I want. I want to be able to sort by Priority level, and then WITHIN each priority, sort items manually.

  17. Add option for row height in list

    I have huge lists and need to fit a lot onscreen. Adding a row height option inside the app would be really useful, especially when all data fields are hidden except the task name. The widget is cool, but I'd prefer the app itself have this option.

  18. Use ToodleDo's Hotlist criteria in UTL's Hotlist

    Either there's a bug in the Hotlist syncing with ToodleDo, or UTL has its own independent Hotlist.

    I have changed the criteria for my Toodledo Hotlist, but UTL does not show the same tasks in my UTL hotlist as Toodledo does.

    If it's a bug, please could it be fixed.

    If Toodledo doesn't offer syncing of its hotlist, please can the Help/documentation be updated to clarify that this is the case - i.e. that it's the same as for other Saved Searches in Toodledo - you need to manually replicate them separately in UTL.

  19. Allow a different reminder sound for each task.

    It would be good to have an option to use a specific reminder sound for each task. That way, we can use more alarming sounds for critical items, and we have an idea what the task is without looking at the phone. Thanks.

  20. Coloured background

    Ok, the app is brilliantly flexible and I love it, but can we get colored background choice to make it more enjoyable to use than what looks like an unfinished template. It's well worth spicing it up to look as excellent as it works. Not everything is black and white in this world and this is so good, let it shine. Can't be that hard and it will stand out more as a polished app in the store.
