I would love to see some kind of persistent task support. Specifically, the ability to snooze an alert. Often, ToDo will remind me to do something, I get distracted, and then I forget to re-open ToDo to see what I have to do. When that happens, the task isn't done. I've resorted to using another application to do this for me (Due for iPhone - it will alert me every hour until I get the thing done), but now my tasks are spread out across multiple applications, which makes it hard to keep track of them.
Part of the challenge with this is Apple doesn't allow us to be in the loop on the alert so we can't have a snooze button on the alerts. We could however create an alert option that will not only alert you but continue to alert you at a regular interval until you get it done. That isn't as elegant as a simple snooze button but certainly wouldn't let you forget about the task. Let me know what you think.
That would make me very happy indeed! Ideally, the duration between alerts would be configurable. Thanks!
I can see myself and other using this feature.
I would love to have a snooze option as well. There is another app (not going to mention the name) that allows you to snooze alerts.
This is a great idea. You know I stopped assigning Times to my tasks because of this. I have a ton of things to do and the moment I miss a task with a time set.... the whole focus list falls apart because the red task just sits there undone and forgotten about. I quick button that says "Delay for 5,15,15,30,60" would make the world a better place :)
Amen !! I have accepted as age sets in that I need all the help I can get. I have to set a timer when I boil water because I will get busy & forget until it's half boiled away ... LOL I call it "burning water". ;-) A "nag" type alert would be a big plus.
@Calvin ... I understand "Apple" constraints don't allow a "snooze" but I would definitely use an "internal option" even I have to set it for the individual task. If there was a default to "nag" mode I would leave it set for all tasks with a due date.
This could be added to the Android app, though. It has my vote. This is another reason why I switched from an iPhone to SGS4. Tired of the limits Apple places on developers in so many silly ways.
I have been using this product for a month or so and have really enjoyed it except for this one problem. I really need to have consistent task alerts or things get missed like others have mentioned. This will probably be a deal breaker for me unless it is added soon. Please make this update!!!
Matthew Reddick: "On the surface, I realize that this request we are all making is not high priority, but you have understand that having a Todo application that can not effectively remind you of tasks, is useless."
This is a great point, but it also seems contradictory to me. If a missing feature makes the application useless, I would argue it is in fact a high priority issue. I agree 100% with this, but I worry that downplaying the usefulness of this idea will reduce its chances of getting implemented.
Happy to see others see things the way I do! Appigo, any thoughts on this?
