    Find yourself no longer needing to have the task completed? Delete from inbox vs marking as complete and then having to go to Completed Items to delete it.

    • Hyperlinks have GOT to be clickable

      If the point of GID is to make my life easier, I shouldn't have to select, copy and paste hyperlinks. Make them clickable, please. It's almost 2015 :)

      • no question you absolutely need to be able to export to email individual tasks or notes within a task from the Ipad.

        No question you absolutely need to be able to export to an email both individual tasks (not the entire task list) as well as being able to export notes within a task. You would sell many more of these apps with that feature.

          Hi there!

          I know this response is long over due. You can now email a single task or a whole task list to someone outside of Get It Done. Steps can be found here:
          https://marcucio.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/25000007189-how-to-email-tasks-from-get-it-done

          If you are still with us, give it a go and let us know if this is still an issue for you or if you need something different.

          If you are not with us and are still looking, come give us another try! We’ve released the new Get It Done Version 5 with some exciting new features. Read more about it here: http://blog.getitdoneapp.com/2017/02/01-all-new-get-it-done-task-app/

          Thanks again for your feedback!

        • tag button on tasks in list

          There is a button on every task in any task list that says "no project". Will there be the same function for tags like in the old GID app? Right now, tag assignment directly from the list without opening the task is only available if the task is already tagged. I really would like to see the button "no tag"

              • TODAY folder shows all tasks (= repeating and scheduled tasks)

                TODAY folder shows all tasks (= repeating and scheduled tasks)

                On a daily routine I do tasks every single morning eg. check your yearly goals / check your bank account / define your maintask for today / etc.

                To focus on what’s important TODAY I'd love to check on a busy day only my TODAY folder. And I would also like to tick them after I finished them. On the next day these repeating/daily tasks are all again in my TODAY folder waiting for me. That would be awesome.

                  We just added the ability to select which folder you would like recurring tasks to go into. The default is Inbox but you can change this when you edit or add the recurring task:
                  - Open the recurring task
                  - Click “this task repeats”
                  - Chance the option for “New Tasks will be created in”

                  This change is live in the web app and will come to the native apps in the next update..

                • I would like to be able to email a specific task with its notes to an individual.

                  I manage a lot of different people and projects. I need to be able to email a task and it's notes to a specific individual. I do not see where that is available to share by email other than sharing the whole page. Not all of the individuals that I deal with have get it done nor what I want to set them up to share. This would be a tremendous tool for delegation and management.

                    • make a function for "Adding attachments (pics and files)" to Android App

                      Since I use the whiteboard a lot during meetings I think it would be great if there was a function for adding pictures/attachments directly from the GID-app for Android - just as you can do in the web app.

                      Today you first have to take a Picture, then create a task and then via the web app add the Picture to the task (you could also email the pic to your uniqe GID-adress).

                      • Be able to set a folder as a default such as Today

                        Having the ability to set a folder to be a default would be a great addition. Currently it goes to inbox, but when I fire the app up I would really like to know what I am doing today

                              • Have 'Reference' as an extra 'Area of Focus' i.e. Today/Next/Scheduled/Someday/Reference

                                It would be useful to have 'Reference' as an extra Area of Focus. Not quite David Allen, but reference items are handy to have within the app (eg contact details/noteable dates/etc) Even though you can tag them as reference, they do still get lost amongst the real 'next action someday' items. It is easier now that you can sort tasks, but a separate reference area of focus would work better.

                                  Hi Alison,

                                  Thank you for your feedback. I wanted to explain our stance before closing the feedback.

                                  There is a way for you to create a custom Focus Areas. See here for details:
                                  https://marcucio.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/25000006698-how-do-i-create-a-custom-focus-area-i-e-waiting-for-folder-

                                  We are hesitant to add extra Focus Areas since we’d like to stay true to David Allen’s methodology. Since we keep our apps very simple and flexible, our users actually told us of this workaround. :)

                                  I hope you can understand our stance. Thanks again for your idea and keep the feedback coming!

                                • Add a visual flag (Like the Note indicator) on the Task line to indicate that an attachment exists.

                                  A note identifier is visible to the user from the TAsk list when a NOte has been added to the item. However, if a File is attached to a Task item, there is no visible way to know unless you view the details of the task.

                                        • Keyboard shortcuts - hitting return key when editing a task should save it

                                          if poss, it shouldn't be necessary to use the mouse to quickly edit and save a task
