Thanks for your reply and moving ‘me’ to a separate topic . I can fully understand the build of a new tool from scratch using a modern tack stack and I stay curious to see the new version once launched. I hope, though, that UI and functionality in TaskScale - after further development and implementing some (hopefully most ) of the feedback - will at least be on the same level, hopefully even better than in GTDNext.
I can understand your rationale with the new structure offering new feature options, e.g. sharing possibilities. Yet, for me, as I said, having a complete view is key. If this was not possible in the future, I might not make use of areas and workspaces at all (even though both are powerful tools but at the same, it would be too troublesome to jump back and forth between areas/ workspaces) and the missing of a complete view might even be a complete showstopper for migration!! For me, this is one of the key USP of GTDNext, which would get lost.
Agree, not too critical.
Node Tree item type: Checklist
Got your point, makes sense for me and is a nice feature and upgrade.
This is related to the area / workspace subject above (complete outline). Being able to only create and work on new items in a separate list for the inbox would make things much more inconvenient and less efficient in my view.
Waiting and Someday status
Ok, implementing a solution would be very helpful if it allows to have separate lists for Waiting and Someday items as well as if it was not run on the basis of tags.
Tags. Tag Filtering
Ok, hopefully you can develop such a functionality soon as filtering via a search bar as it is now implemented in GTDNext is very efficient and powerful.
GTDNext is not the only tool attaching tags as separate list, also Nirvana, Omnifocus and Todoist do it this way. In my view, having a clean and neat outline where tags are being shown in a separate column and in a decent/ discreet style (e.g. as now in GTDNext, Nirvana or Omnifocus) proofs to provide a great value add. Otherwise, the outlines will get very busy and complex. Thereby, using tags becomes much less attractive, which, at the same time would limit the exploitation of their great potential in organizing items and filtering them accordingly.
Ok, have to run more tests once fully developed.
Repeating Nodes + Today/Daily Planner page: I tested those features now and have to say that these are great improvements compared to GTDNext.
In this regard, I’m looking forward to any updated version and hope for further advancements !
At last, some questions re timing and outlook:
• Launch date: Have you already a launch date for TaskScale in mind?
• Transition period: Once TaskScale is launched, are GTDNext users obliged to migrate, i.e. are you shutting down GTDNext soon after launch or will both apps be run for some time in parallel?
• Further development: You always note that GTDNext has not seen much of a development in recent years due to resource constraints and restrictions on the basis of the legacy technology. How active would the team be in the future to work on new features and refinements?
