First. Mind Manager is excellent but am I the only one who spend some much time on filtering? If you have any proposal on how to do it actually without removing the filter. Start searching again and have 100 different queries (Actually I have not but I feel I need to if I should manage the different searches).
I am using Mind Manager daily to handle tasks/projects assigned to me. And the deadlines. What to do today, this week, next week etc. Then Tags, grouping, ressources etc. helps me control the status, how long is this task in the process etc. and I have sub tasks to handle every action I need to do.
I have some proposals to improve the filter functions both Quick filter and power filter.
Every time I search I need to Hide completed tasks first. This is one thing.
To do a new search I need to remove the filter which removes the entire filter and then I can start to select again.
- When selecting quick
search as past due, due today, due tomorrow, due next week Mind Manager
should know if a query/powerfilter search is used.
Ex. search for a certain TAG or a project and then show all not completed tasks matching the search. Without the need for removing the filter. Then do the power filter. Then do the quick search. Past due shows – Past due. When selecting due today as an example it should immedeately search for due today without need for remove the filter. But you show past due and if you then search for due today the system shows if you have changed some of the past due to due today instead of searching all tasks in the map which are due today.
- Powerfilter. It could be
very good if it was possible to make a combination of Show/Hide (maybe
also fade but for me I never use that function). But maybe you make a
search and then it shows a lot but you do not want some other task to show
which you now can search again and then hide. But why not make a query
which do this in one go?
- Attached mails should be viewed also when the task is showed in a filter. If I want to filter what I need today I cannot jump to my added mails quickly because they are filtered out as well. If I have drag and dropped mails to a certain task they should be viewed when the task is shown in a filter.
I could properly come up with more suggestions but if some
improvements could be made to the new version I will be more than happy :-)
