        At the moment the remind date and the due date are basicaly the same. It would be great to have the possibility to create one or multiple reminders, that are indipendent to the due date.

        I'm having the same issue. I dont even need a specific date..just want a separate place for tasks to hopefully complete within a few days.

        Best list app out there except for this feature. I'll subscribe when you implement this but until then it's annoying to be told I need milk every single hour of every single day until I go to the store.

        This is the reason I cancelled my subscription. You need to improve the time and date management features. I believe this is likely the best app of it's kind but this one thing is a deal breaker. FIX IT!!!

        Allow the user to set how much time they need to work on that list.

        FULLY AGREE with Trevor Capello (6 comments below) re recurring tasks having a start and end dates to show. I also use these a lot and I don't need them to show up until the day of event. At present they NEVER go away... Annoying enough that I will keep my ears and eyes open for an alternative in case this doesn't get fixed.. please do fix tho!

        I'm really glad I saw this thread. I was on the verge of buying annual premium and this is a total deal breaker for me.

        The inability to add a task without specific time was a deal breaker. Too bad, nice UI. Hello Todoist.

        Some tasks are not as important as others and do mot need a specific due date and time. Oryou may not have a time in mind yet, but you still want that task to appear in your calendar everyday. It would be helpful if there was an option in the reminder tab to keep the task as timeless so that the task would forward to the next day but not have a specific time due each day.

        The ability to choose a due date with no time or reminder attached when entering a task has been requested in various forms over the years with a lot of comments and votes. The devs just aren't interested in making this change, and have said so in this forum.

        ZOMG YES PLEASE. I paid for the subscription to the app, then when I discovered that I was required to assign a time for every task, it was the deciding factor in me cancelling my subscription for the next month. Like the OP said, I just wanna budget/take out the trash/study/make dinner for the fam/etc without being obligated to assign a time. Assigning a date is great, it's the time aspect that's annoying. Most things are just general tasks (i.e. TO DO'S), and not appointments that require a time. This is usually a standard feature on many other To Do apps I've used, and it's surprising we are not even given the option with Any.DO.

        Agree with this Idea, its nice to have task with out specific time, but a task in some cases need a start date time and an End date time.

        Basically, just like the option to add a reminder to a task but be able to add deadlines too. Let's say you have a task that has to be done on a certain date, but to have it done on that date you need to work on it before that date thats when the reminders are set. To remind you to work on it prior to the deadline. As well, subtasks should have the options to add a reminder to it.

        A cool feature for Samsung S8, S8+ and Note8 users would be an integration with Bixby, the virtual assistant. This way you can ask Bisby to add the task for you, mark it as done etc...

        Also, a small tip: add other handy features to premium! I love the fact that the premium option isn't expensive at all! And i really like Any.do because its always listening to the users to improve itself. Great job!

        Thank you!

        Add a deadline to each task. So we will have the day ou time thar we WANT to do the task and we will also have the limit to do. May it be possible to have another botton button (tasks / calendar / deadline / config). Thr deadline button should show the tasks order by time of each deadline. Also, another color mark could be add to task title (or title font color) that goes since green till red in 7 levels of colours, as the deadline for the task is comming. We could also configute the levels... like the red (7 - last) level should come with 3 days to dead line.... orange (level 6) come with 5 days to dead line... blue come with 10 days... This way each person can configure as its own rotine. Some has projects that you wprk in a year... so the red could come with 30 days... for others, the tasks are more dinamically, and the red could come with 2 days
