The two time management methodologies that I have found make sense to me are GTD and Mark Forster's Do it Tomorrow. I have been using GTDNext since IQtell went belly up and I find it invaluable but I have been trying to incorporate the DIT methodology with tricks (tags, etc) without much success.
I assume it would not be very difficult to create a Tomorrow list, similar to the Today list. At midnight, generate any scheduled task on that list the day before the task is due. Before that, move the previous Tomorrow tasks to the Today list.

In the left pane, we have a number next to 'Next Actions', 'Today' and 'Focus', showing how many items are in that category. Is it possible to have this done for the categories under 'Lists'? eg 'Inbox' (to be able to see at a quick glance that we have items to process), 'Scheduled', 'Waiting', 'Someday'. Thanks.4 votes
The Notes area has a UI toolbar which is set up by default to facilitate turning text into Rich Text Format (bold / italicize / underline / etc). This toolbar takes up a disproportionate amount of space given the amount of time it is used.
I'm wagering most users have short notes which do not utilize RTF elements.
I suggest that the screen real estate on the web interface have a default unchecked box for toggling a "show/hide rich text toolbar".
In the same veing of thought - there could be a "simplify formatting" option which translates the RTF down…4 votes
I like to use sub- projects. As it is, I find if difficult to sort Inbox items into my various subprojects. It would be easier if the Projects & Actions section on the left hand panel showed the hierarchy of projects.4 votes
When working on Actions have a Next Action button available. When you click on the button the current action gets checked off and disappears, and a new blank action opens that is tied to the Parent Project. Sometimes you don't have time to figure out each step of a project, or you don't want the next step is until you complete the last one. This allows you to work through a project more quickly with a smooth workflow.3 votes
Yes, some of still PRINT, but most To-Do apps have meager printing capabilities, including GTDnext and Nirvana. HOWEVER...
Nirvana has a GREAT "email my list to me" feature that largely overcomes its in-app printing shortcomings. You can choose to receive your nicely formatted list on any day(s) of your choosing. For me, it's a daily reminder to process my list, print it out for my shirt pocket, and then archive the email for reference.
James, 'Export All' is a partial workaround for those of us who want our info in print. Please add "Email My List" as a preference setting.…3 votes
I have been using GTDNext for over a week and I still get confused about what clicking the filters (e.g. "Filter Active Items", "Items with due dates", "Filter Focused items", "Hide complete"), button actually do!
The problem with the word "Filter" is that it can mean filter in or filter out!
Also the mouse over text needs to change depending on whether the button has been greyed out.
I suggest something like
"Show just Active items" (or "Remove 'just Active items' filter")
"Show just items with Due dates" (or "Remove 'just Due dates' filter")
"Show just focused items" (or "Remove…3 votes
When working with the web app in iOS, entering an emoji character into a task name and clicking away crashes the page.
I use emoji in my current GTD app (RtM) and this is one of the last things stopping me from moving across to GTDNext compeletely.3 votes
create an option to share the project list among multiple email accounts, so each account can update a project2 votes
This is on our list of features we want to implement.
I'd love a quicker way to move tasks (and trees of tasks+subtasks) from anywhere to the correct project.
Ideally this would include two workflows:
1. without needing to leave the keyboard with hotkey + input field already focused
2. without needing to think, i.e. right-click, menu item "Move To" leading to focused input field.
The input field would include a dropdown list populated with partial match on project names allowing you to find the right project with minimum input text.
Ideally the match would be through the whole project name so exact match / starting chars match wouldn't be so…2 votes

When the cursor is at the beginning of an action's line, ctrl+a then backspace does not (always) work.2 votes
I love the clean, cool look of Nirvana. Would love to change out of that black background, which I find depressing. thanks!2 votes
I propose that users should be allowed to create their own hotkeys for adding/removing Context Tags to tasks.
e.g. Suppose you the user had a Context Tag called say "~Errands", you might like to set up an obscure hotkey like say Shift/Alt/E ("E" for Errands).
As things stand applying Contexts to task is horribly slow and as a result in my experience for many tasks, may not happen in practice. However for regular users this feature would speed up the adding of Context by a factor of about x10.
Ideally using the hotkey should toggle the Tag on/off, so…1 vote
I think this functionality can let user to record relevant info of handling the tasks by date,time log so that it can provide useful info when user need to look back what's has been done for specific projects or actions.1 voteAdminSergio (co-founder, GTD Next) responded
Each task and project does have a notes area. Are you wanting time stamps or something different than that?
Only have one (not two) projects expansion icons. And it should change to show the current open/closed status.
It seems crazy (i.e. inconsistent and a waste of space and less easy to understand) to have two rather than just one icon for expanding and collapsing projects.
Maybe there was a sound technical reason for the way you have done it but... I suggest you either show the open icon (when projects are open) OR you should show the closed icon (when projects are closed) and the mouse-over should change in each case to say what happens why you click it.1 vote

Improved robustness for high availability.1 vote
When I have my web browser (on laptop) on 100% zoom settings, there isn't a way for me to scroll to the bottom of the left panel to view the lower items. I recommend either adjusting it so the scroll functionality accounts for whether the left-panel items are running off the page (as I'm sure it would allow me to scroll if I had a list of tasks that runs off the screen), or to create a separate scrolling functionality for the left-hand panel itself. Y'all are doing an awesome job and I love where this is going!1 vote
