Some people ask us why do we send out emails to the customers who seem to abandon our tool. Well, the first reason is to know what to improve, but there's also the second -- to receive emails like this one. Thank you @Adam :)

Hello friends!

I'd like to ask for your opinion regarding multi-line text editing. This suggestion comes from one of our Russian-speaking customers +Dolina Zamkova so here is a translated abstract of our email conversation.

Current problem: When you write multi-line text, you must press 'Shift-Enter' first, then use 'Enter' to start a new line, then 'Ctrl-Enter' to submit the text. Wouldn't it be easier to have a setting that will allow using Enter to always write multi-line texts, and always submit on 'Ctrl-Enter', like you do it in text messengers?

So we could add a new account-wide setting, on the Settings page:

() Finish editing by pressing 'Ctrl-Enter'
(convenient for multi-line text)

What do you think? Do you write multi-line texts in Checkvist at all? Other thoughts of how we could make it better? :)

Hello friends and happy new year to you all!

Among many other issues we are going to address, there's a couple of things we'd like to improve on the Due view.

Precisely, we are going to
- make list items actionable (edit, tag, etc, etc)
- show the list item hierarchy better, and
- provide more Due time interval views.

Could you please help us with the last one?

Here's a quick idea illustration - customizable Due tabs. And the question is, what would be your own set of views? How would you prefer to slice your due tasks?

Thanks!
(A similar design would go into the mobile view. So you'll be seeing something like this on your mobile screen, too.)

Something is baking up :)

Actually, you can already try it live on https://beta.checkvist.com The shortcut, as you might have guessed is 'pc'. Works on a list (from the 'Options' menu, 'oo') or a single branch (select the top list item in the brach and press 'pc').

Right now we are polishing the details, colors, etc. So it's a good time to try how the feature works and tell us how to improve it ;)

So have you tried the latest mobile app update? http://checkvist.tumblr.com/post/133025775083/checkvist-mobile-v08-hoist-and-fixes
We are already working on the next one :)

Hello friends!

Finalising the new version of the mobile app that will feature the long awaited 'Delete' function, we thought it would be better to mirror the 'Delete' on mobile with 'Restore deleted' in the browser (http://checkvist.uservoice.com/forums/2121-general/suggestions/5312958-a-trash-bin-to-store-deleted-items-temporarily).

Now you can restore the list items deleted during the last 24 hours on https://beta.checkvist.com. Just press the 'rd' shortcut, and select which items you want to restore. Then either press the 'rd' shortcut again, or the 'Restore' button under the list.

As always, we'll be happy if you tried the new function and tell us how it works. And meanwhile we'll finish the delete on mobile :)

Thanks!

One more CSS snippet for those who use CSS customisation. Now you can add icons with tags, and hide the tags afterwards. Many thanks to +Edo Amin Elan for the idea. https://checkvist.com/p/42953 (at the bottom of the list)

Oh, so there's hope for readability and text composing in Facebook now! http://www.teehanlax.com

Hello friends!

Those of you who missed GitHub flavoured Markdown support, and code highlighting can log into http://beta.checkvist.com and see how it works.

Another thing to try are changes in multi-line text editing. Now when you edit a multi-line text, Enter starts a new line, and Ctrl (or Meta) Enter submits the text. On one-line list items, Enter works as Submit. 

As usual, we'll be glad to hear about the bugs and glitches. If anything looks or behaves ugly, we'll fix it. The main server update is planned for the end of the week (hopefully).

Thanks!
