  2. Steps/Subtasks - Ability to Hide/Unhide Completed Steps within a Task

    The new Steps feature has been introduced to meet the need for subtasks within a task. It is possible to easily reorder the steps and to delete them individually, but it would be highly desirable if the user could Hide/Unhide the list of Steps within a given task. That would decrease task clutter and increase usability. Hopefully, this is on your roadmap for the Step feature...

  5. Multiple reminders, nagging

    It will be really helpful if we can remind multiple times and repeat todos:
    ex. Multiple reminders within a day: Take a break(9am and 3pm)
    ex. Repeat the same reminder every 10 minutes to do laundry

  6. Reminder before actual due time (fixed 5 mins, 10 mins)

    Setting reminder few minutes prior to the initiation of a task.

    There should be a feature to set reminder 5, 10 or 20 minutes before a task I would like to start at a specific time. For example, if I want to do read a book at 9:00 am, the feature would help me remind myself at 8:55 am that I have to read the book at 9. Google and another app called tick tick in playstore does this really well.

  7. iOS 12 Siri Shortcuts

    Please integrate the new iOS 12 feature "Siri Shortcuts".
    It would be great to ask Siri for an overview of "My day" or to add new task based on a preconfigured shortcut.

  8. Show Steps / Subtasks in main view

    The subtasks shows up under the parent task in levels so that when the subtasks are completed the parent task will be completed too.

  10. Autocomplete based on Completed Tasks

    Example. I went to Costco to get Milk. I check it off as completed. A few weeks later, because I have it completed it is out of view. If I'm typing in Milk, the completed task should populate giving the user the option to uncheck it to add it back to the list. Would reduce redundancy in the completed section as well as users from having to retype tasks that are generally on their lists. Slightly different from redundant tasks as this is on demand.

  11. Share Group

    Provide option to share a Group created with other users. Currently have to share per list in a Group Manually and have to track if missed to share any list in a group with others.
    I would be fantastic to have sharing options like Parent/Child settings. Like Child List inherent sharing options from Group Parent or can have unique permissions.

  12. Integrate with Trello

    Trello is a great tool for project management but there is no convenient way to keep track of your personal tasks (assigned cards) day by day. Also, in terms of productivity, I prefer to have a single todo list with all the tasks I have to do today, instead of checking multiple inboxes.

    Please build an integration with Trello that automatically synchronizes cards assigned to me with my ToDos. This integration has to be a continuous synchronization that also modifies ToDos if the card is modified. The ToDo should be set due to the date the Trello card is due.

  14. Azure DevOps Integration

    It would be great to have an integration with Azure DevOps' work items. Similarly to the Outlook flagged emails integration, a task linked to work item in Azure DevOps could have a detail section which would give a preview of the work item and include a link to view its complete version in Azure DevOps.

  15. Sorting

    Have a double sorting feature. For example, sort my list by priority then alphabetically so all priorities are alphabetically sorted as well as the non priority tasks.

    Furthermore, the ability to re-arrange any items to create a custom sort of any list.

  16. Multiple account integration

    I have multiple work accounts and a personal account. It would be good to have all these actions in a single To Do app - with the ability to see them ordered by account, with additional items added being integrated to the appropriate source account.
    Is this likely anytime soon?

  17. iOS 11 & Multitasking iPad

    Allow the ability to drag and drop reminders from other apps into To-Do (iOS 11).

    Can split screen with other apps.

    Subscribe reminders into iCal.

  18. Recycle Bin for deleted tasks and lists and sorting.

    Also, draging an item into the recycle bin will delete it. It should be sortable by deletion time or alphabetically.

  19. (one click) skip overdue undone recurring task or move it to other dates

    An option to skip a repeating task would be nice. Like another post "Repeating tasks should not stack". If there is a daily repeating task and one doesn't do one day an option to "skip this one", or simple move it to "today" or "tomorrow", as an example, would be nice.

  20. When adding to "My Day," have a drop down menu of your lists to choose which list the task goes with.

    I work for two different Realtors plus I have a personal list. I'd like to be able to add a task to My Day without first having to go to the appropriate list, add the task, then click "add to my day."
