Hi!

The 1.3.2 update changelog is for the mobile only on iOS & Android.

The Mac app is always being updated as it is a wrapper around our web app. Any time we push updates to our web app at http://www.taskade.com, you will load the latest release on your Mac app. .

A good start for templates.

Depending on what you want Taskade to do, you might be able to add template for a mood journal or one-line-a-day journal, a la Moodnotes, DayGram, 5_Minute Journal, or Grid Diary.

Some sort of sync/import option with Mac/iOS Reminders could be useful. I know that apps like GoodTask and Due have this option, which gives the benefit of being able to add a task in Siri (into Reminders) which then syncs to the task app.

It would be nice to be able to enter a timestamp, like when I’m making contemporaneous notes inside a day’s task notes, or for a timeline journal. In other apps I was using a free 3rd-part extension action for Popclip for that (although I think a recent update killed that particular extension).

One thing I’ve found that I keep stumbling over in Taskade involves creating a blank subtask I want to return to later on. When entering a subtask, you *must* type something - even if it’s just a space - or when you hit Enter to create a sister task it acts like you typed Shift-Tab and unindenting the subtask you’re in and leaving you there (that is, not creating a new sister subtask underneath). Gets annoying. Ideally, Enter would act normally and send you to a new subtask as the same level.

Also, I’d love to see a keyboard command for ‘Make New Subtask’ (instead of having to [1] create a new sister-task and then [2] hitting Tab.) I know that this is common in many task managers like Todoist but if you outline a lot you will want to easily and more quickly be able to create daughter/aunt tasks. For example:

- In OmniOutliner there is a one-step ‘Add Inside’ keyboard command (and optional toolbar icon/text) - and a ‘Create Outside’ outdent command as well.
- The Opal outliner lets you CMD-D ‘Create New Daughter’ or CMD-A ‘Creat New Aunt’ topic.
- Cloud Outliner Pro lets you ‘Create Child’ with Shift-Enter or ‘Add Aunt’ with CMD-Shift-Enter.
- OutlineEdit has ‘New Subitem’ with Option-CMD-Enter (but oddly no ability to create a new Aunt).

Thanks, we will review all the suggestions and try to incorporate them soon as we expand https://www.taskade.com/templates and let users create / customize their own workflows.

1- These are great.
2- We do get requests for “Import from _____” often. Will work on this when we have more bandwidth.
3- Can you elaborate on this? A time stamp on each task, or each task list / document on Taskade?
4- Noted. We will look into this!
5- Keyboard shortcuts will be improved soon, with more flexibility. Thanks for these!

By timestamp I simply mean being able to paste in some user-preconfigured date/time info.

Here’s what my PopClip extension (yea, it’s working again!) just pasted: 

2018-11-05 16:39:30

Nothing really special, but something like that’s useful for me when taking contemporaneous notes on something in a text editor, or in a notes field.

To me the expected behavior for ‘hit Enter on blank task’ was just to create an empty sub/task then move down to the next level.
What actually happened - unindenting the subtask I was in (so it becomes a higher level task) - just seemed weird.

—-

I understand why Taskade didn’t initially include Add new subtask/child/daughter (or Add Aunt) - it’s not common in task managers. But it’s very common in outliners, and when I sit down to brainstorm tasks it makes the most sense to me.

Example: I need to go run errands at the mall, so I make MALL SHOPPING a task then immediately want to jump down a level to make a subtask-checklist for each store I ant to visit Let’s say the first is ‘Petco’. Currently in Todoist or Taskade I need to make a new sister-topic (though it doesn’t belong there), then indent it, then create *another* sister-topic, and then indent *it* to start the shopping list. (But a single keyboard command to make a daughter/child/subtask is cleaner, and faster.) And then, from inside my last Petco checklist item, in order to create and start a list for the next store - say ‘Target’ - I’d need to create a new sister-checklist item and *unindent*... then create a sister item to it and *indent again* to start the new line of checklist items.

In an outliner it’s TASK (Mall), then Daughter-subtask command (Petco), then Daughter command again (checklist level with as many item/Enter as necessary), and then for the next store;s list (Target) it’s New-Aunt, then New Daughter for the checklist level. Faster. Cleaner.

I wouldn’t say Taskade should scrap any current commands, just that adding Daughters and Aunts as keyboard commands would make things zippier. :)
