[Managing] Add simple status flag icon

Postby chrisz » Mon Sep 21, 2009 9:24 am

I use this wonderfull :D program as a tasklist. I think it would be an improvement if there was a coloured status flag in the header of each note. Something like the flags used by Outlook. You can then easily mark a note and so indicate whether it is ready or not.
I use tags to do this now, but with flags it works faster, only using the mouse.

How about right clicking the note header for background color selection? I would dig this very much...

Even better would be if the coloured flags or background color could be used for reordering/grouping notes.

Hello chrisz,

thanks for the suggestion!

>How can I add voting options for this post? Or is this available to moderators only??
According to the forum rules, you can (and to speed up things, probably should) do it yourself. Just edit your original post and fill in the poll-related fields.
The poll should be stated in exactly the same way as all other FR polls. Thanks!

If implemented I really would like a fast one-click solution to apply a flag/checkmark/whatever which basically behaves as a toogle, for example left clicking on a specific place in the note header (while staying in list view), a right click instead might show a more complete choice but thus involving a multi-step way to apply this flag... or maybe two icons one that as said behaves as a one-click solution and next to it a pull down button with a richer choiche.
At the moment I use two tags, like "To do" and "Done" but it's not a really fast or convenient way to use them.
