        • Start dates that synch with SharePoint.

          Start dates for tasks, please that synch with SharePoint task lists. All project management tools that I work with have the ability to set start dates for tasks. If you want to work on a task it is handy to know when it is due. It is even handier to know when you have to start so that you actually meet the deadline.

              A next Action date field with the same functionalities as the due date field helps to manage tasks which are not completed within one day.

              • Go Back to Former Layout

                Go back to the previous layout for task in a box. I really dislike the floating pop up box for tasks and also dislike how I cannot choose a background or at least a darker "theme" for my task in a box. The white is so harsh and uninviting. I really like TIAB but just had these grievances and had no where to voice them. Thanks!

                  While scheduling task for a day it shoould also allow time in drop box.

                  • 1 message instad of multiple

                    Instead of creating a separate message... just have the original message come back into the inbox. If I go tot he "Snooze" file it shows multiple messages of the same message. But some are the "Tasks". Just utilize the original message and pop it back and forth into the inbox as required. I used to use a "Snooze for outlook" it kept it all very simple.. 1 message snoozed and reappearing as necessary.

                                • Display Project Deadline when viewing Task Lists (e.g My Tasks, etc); and Flag if due date is Critical

                                  When viewing Task Lists such as My Task, Tasks Delegated by Me, Catch Up, Tasks I'm Following, Unassigned Tasks, Tasks of the Team -- it will be helpful to have a quick information of when is the deadline of the Project.

                                  Another suggestion is to flag the whole Project and all its Tasks as "Critical" if the project deadline is nearly approaching and there are still overdue tasks and open tasks in the list.

                                    It will be cool to have a Tomato button in each Task that will activate the Pomodoro timer. Basically, it's a 25 minute timer, with Interrupt mode. Short Break time of 5 mins, and longer Break time of 10mins, by interval.

                                    • Automatic Email Flag (based on Task Due Date) when Email is Added as a Task via Outlook App

                                      Using Outlook App for Tasks in a Box, its easy to convert an Email to a Task. However, later in time, you would not easily remember when you've done converting an Email to a Task already as there is no indicator in the Email itself. Chances are, you may end up converting same Email and have duplicate Email Tasks existing in the program.

                                      Possible solution is to automatically "flag" the Email based on set Due Date of the Task. If the task is not scheduled, flag the Email as "Today". Basically, any indicator that will identify an Email as "Added…

                                      • Ability to click chart results in the Dashboard to view its tasks (e.g. Overdue, Sometime Tasks)

                                        When viewing Dashboards, you can see metrics of Tasks by Status, Owner, etc. It will be good to make those metrics charts (bars) clickable so its easier to review certain list of tasks like those that are Overdue, or haven't been scheduled (Sometime).
