  1. Grouping tags

    It would be a great thing to be able to visually group tags in the top bar, especially if you have a lot of tags

  2. Context One Click Feature

    I propose that a feature be added to handle contexts that would solve some of the problems that currently exist with using "tags" feature for the purposes of applying GTD context to items.

    I propose a feature that:
    1. combines the one click assignment of the "focus" function with
    2. the button functionality of the area filters, including the all important no area button.

    3. If desired, icons for home or phone or computer could be selected for each context, instead of a red button for focus.

    Why do this? There are so many problems with the current system of…

  3. Add a simple query capability

    We have a weekly stand-up to report what work we have done over the last week. I forget half of what I have done, so it would be nice to be able to query all tasks done in a given date range.
    This is a specific example, but a generic query facility would compliment what seems to be a pretty promising product.

  4. support iOS emoji

    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.

  5. Track estimated and actual time

    When I do my daily review a really useful piece of data to have would be the estimated duration for actions. It would remove just a bit of friction from thinking about how long each action may take when I'm figuring out how much I can get done. Also, being able to loop back and enter the actual amount of time would be helpful for helping identify issues with my estimations in general as well as for reviewing if/when similar tasks arise in the future.

  6. Actions inherit project due dates

    I have a number of projects that have overall due dates attached to the project as a whole. I would like to have any "next action(s)" associated with them inherit that due date and be displayed in the Next Action view when the "due date" filter is applied.

  7. Add buttons to indent/outdent (demote/promote) an entry in the action details panel

    In the absence of an Android app (I see one will be developed), I have been using GTDnext via the Chrome browser on my Android tablet. The biggest challenge to this is the absence of a "tab" key on most Android keyboards. I have found a keyboard that features a "tab" key so I can indent an entry, however, I cannot find a way to enter the "shift" + "tab" command necessary to outdent an entry.

    I think two added buttons on the action detail panel could alleviate this problem and seem to be a logical place to locate them.…

  8. Hierarchical Areas

    I use areas to categorize my actions and projects by area of responsibility e.g. Health, Work, Social, Recreational...

    A better presentation of my areas, however, would be hierarchical. I have social commitments to my family and friends, I might want to see them separately or together. Same goes regarding work commitments relating to my clients vs my accountant; my different hobbies etc.

    It would be convenient to:
    - be able to organize my areas in a hierarchical way.
    - associate actions/projects to any (one or more) area in the hierarchy (different scopes). A drag and drop of multiple actions/project to…

    Interesting. We have thought about making Tags Hierarchical, but had not thought about it for Areas. We will think about it.

    One thing I don’t think I agree with is having “Bills” be an Area as Jolygod gives as an example. That seems more like tag to me.

    Areas are intended to be Areas of Focus in your life. So examples would be Work, Family, Side Business, Personal, Spiritual, etc.

  9. Task Count

    Would be great to see counts of the number of tasks in particular views. e.g. I'd like to be able to see at a glance that I have 16 tasks in the Next Action list.

  11. ctrl-a

    When the cursor is at the beginning of an action's line, ctrl+a then backspace does not (always) work.

  12. Add Button -no tags- which will filter all tasks with no tags assigned

    I use tags as contextes for cases when i'm not at my PC (eg, home, on errand, in bank). When I am near my PC I want to be able to get a filtered list of Next tasks where tags are not specified.
    I think it should work the same way as -no area- button.

  14. Fully featured keyboard shortcuts

    A full set of keyboard shortcuts to use the web app quickly. The goal would be that using the keyboard alone, someone can work very quickly and have no need for the mouse.

    Details:

    1) Text manipulation (moving, copy, deleting, batch selecting, etc)
    2) Field entry (adding tags, setting status, operations work with batch selection, etc)
    3) Navigation (switch to Inbox view, Action view, Waiting view, etc)

  15. Allow importation

    I'd like to use GTDNext, but I already have GTD up and running in another webapp (workflowy, in my case). The thought of retyping all of my items into GTDNext is keeping me from making the transition.

    Allowing us to import plain text or csv lists to create a whole batch of items would be really helpful. I imagine that I'm not alone in wanting to transition from some other program. I'd guess too that most programs have some kind of plain text or csv output that could be used in this.

    We have recently added the ability to import from NirvanaHQ via the CSV files they create for exporting. If that get’s much use we may consider adding more vendors or a generic import.

  16. Please make a Windows Phone app

    It would be very useful to also create a Windows Phone app. I know we are considered the third wheel of the mobile industry, but it would attract more users to your platform.
    Thank you in advance for your consideration.

  17. Change the mouse-over text of filters to make more explicit

    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…

  18. 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.

  19. Under Projects & Actions in the left hand column, show nested projects in 'tree' format.

    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.

  20. Could we have a drop down for “Priority” (High, Med, Low, New) and “Time Needed” (15, 30, 60 min, 2 hours, etc.) next to Area and Focus?

    Could we have a drop down for “Priority” (High, Med, Low, Create New) and “Time Needed” (15, 30, 60 min, 2 hours, etc.) next to Area and Focus? And also columns to display and “sort by” these criteria? And ability to filter by these too.
