      Darrel: A to-do list and a calendar aren't distinct tools, they're two sides of a coin. The things I have to do today include tasks (do the laundry) AND events (go to a meeting at 2pm). Plus, there are tasks that are inherently date-related... such as filing income tax by April 15th, and wishing my mom a happy birthday. Both events and tasks might be scheduled weeks in advance. If there's no date attached to them, they'd easily get lost in the list.

      Practically everything I'd put on a to-do list has a deadline. If Doris is going to be useful for me, it must include an option for scheduling. A few specific things I'd like to see:

      - Any items with a deadline of today's date should be automatically added to Today.

      - Add "Tomorrow", "This Week" and "This Month" Categories: Just like the Today Category, create the option for categories that look into the future. These would be auto-populated with items that have upcoming due dates, but (just like with Today) you can manually add items.

      - Repeating To-Do's: There needs to be an option (either through the app itself or through integration with a calendar app) to add items that you need to do again and again (weekly, biweekly, monthly, quarterly, plus events that show up every other wednesday or the 15th of the month, etc, etc).

      - Integrate with iCal and Apple Mail: Allow a to-do item created in any OSX app to appear in Doris, and vice-versa. Plus, somehow display calendar events under the "Today" and other date-related categories described above. If you could add and modify those events directly from Doris, even better!

      The bottom line is, everything described above should be optional, controlled by the user, so he can use it however fits his needs.

      I totally agree that an option for scheduling is mandatory.

      As is a link to calendar events, integrating with iCal or Google Calendar, etc.

          yes, and it should work in both directions. A new to'do created in Apple Mail or iCal should show up in Doris, and all doris items should show up in Mail and iCal.

          The difficulty, of course, is the different data. How do you deal with due dates, priorities and the "calendar" fields from the Mac's to-dos, (and with Doris' categories) without just ignoring that data. Tricky.

                make is an option in user prefs.

                  sometimes you can have many groups, and you need to put Today next to a group at the bottom of the list to make drag/drop possible. When we implement an iphone-like way of changing groups we can consider this.

                  You're both right. Keeping "Today" at the top should be an option available in the user prefs.

                    we may introduce this but are keen to keep interface clean. you can currently delete tasks by marking them as done, then deleting them in history.

                    benrush commented  · 

                    I disagree. I think if you can delete categories, you ought to be able to delete tasks. A small X is not going to clutter the layout.
