      Agree, though i now only use three levels: critical, major, ordinary. This aligns with software bug tracking practice in my work, and MS-Outlook practice. Really need at least 3 though. I would not add a lot of customization, just to keep it simple and reliable.

      Expanding priority levels to 3 or 4 would increase utility immensely. I like the idea of being able to customize the "title" of the priority levels too.

      Tags are important for organizing projects or related tasks (especially if lists are set up as "context" buckets, as in GTD). And if tags are added, a method of filtering the views for one (or more) tags would be important (as well as adding a view that lists tasks according to tags).

      C-O-L-O-R-S! for the topics.. That would be much easy to navigate and much nicer to look at..
      Right now (without colors) it feels like 'spending energy' on searching the right topic to put the task in. Actually like Google Keep.
      For me, except that, works really perfect!!

      if you're going to do that, might as well add quick color/tag filtering button. love that feature.

      I would also use this for "tagging" categories

    • Andrew commented  · 

      When looking at all the tasks in list view, it would be really nice if it each one had a visual marker revealing it's category. It could be a color or a letter in the corner of the boxes. But, I like to see all my tasks at once, not by category.

      I would like to have either A, B, C, D levels or urgent/important, important/not urgent, urgent/not important and parking lot levels. This is like the Franklin Covey system that I have used for years. Thank you.

      Also two degrees of importance is very missed feature

      Frankly, I'm surprised this hasn't yet been introduced. Almost every other productivity app has some form of color coding available. In order to be competitive with things like Google Keep, etc. I would highly, highly recommend implementing this! It would help me keep my items straight across multiple platforms (like my Google Calendar) without requiring complex integration.

      I preferred red to the star.

    • Anonymous commented  · 

      Agreed. This being gone frustrates me to no end.

      Stars are for favorites, red or explanation mark is better for something important

      Allow colors to be assigned to a list.
      For example - all items in Personal Work list could have yellow color & all items on Work list could have blue color.

      Consequently, in the view "ALL" it will be easy to distinguish visually.

      We used to be able to mark important tasks in red and now that is not possible. These little yellow stars are pretty much useless, as they blend into the background. Please allow important tasks to be marked in red again.

    • Derick Dönacci Hiro commented  · 

      But instead of using only red font, I think it would be interesting to highlight the task with red box and white font.

      I also find valid reinforce that these categories should receive global names customized by users.
      In this way a user could name yellow "medium priority" while another user could name yellow "Awaiting action".

    • randy commented  · 

      Please br I ng back the ability to highlight important task in red or blue instead of the star

      It would be good if we could attach Evernote files to specific notes/ task. Or better yet you can allow us to attach Evernote tags to task and if pressed will go directly to Evernote to view all task with that task
