Hi all! I've been playing with the code formatting CSS... is there a class being added to the "code" tag when it's a multi-line block (using ```...```)

I'm basically adding a "display:block", but I don't want it to show up on the inline, single backtick items... not sure if there's a better way, or I'm just missing something in the attributes to do so.

Line numbers would be cool on the multi-line blocks, but that's a problem for another day

Thanks!

But, with a class added to the multi-block <code> tag, then it makes it dead-simple to only do a "display: block; width: 100%" on that

Make global search work with part words

At the moment global search works only with part words.

With multiple lists this makes finding things really hard.

Is there any chance global search could be changed to work with part words?

Hi everyone,

I have a couple of news for you:

- Checkvist is running on a new server (we migrated a week ago, so far so good)
- On https://beta.checkvist.com you can try 'time estimation' feature (http://checkvist.uservoice.com/forums/2121-general/suggestions/82564-add-estimated-hours-for-completion-to-track-time):
- Mark a task with #30m or #4h or #2d tag to set estimate
- On the parent task, press 'pc' for progress counter
- Checkvist will show summary estimate of non-completed tasks (for those tasks where estimate is set)
- Use popup over estimate to see total time estimate, including completed tasks.

Feedback is welcome :)

Best,

+Kirill Maximov, +Sasha Maximova - I'm having an issue where my CSS-added Font Awesome icons won't appear on items in one particular list... They work on every other list I've tried...

Any ideas what might be causing this and how I can resolve?

Cheers~

Hello again,

I think I understand what's wrong with this list. You enabled numbering in this list, and this overrides the icons, which are shown the same way as numbering.

To show icons instead of numbers, you can use !important after content css style, like:

.tag_notes span.userContent:before
{content:"\f15c" !important;font-family:FontAwesome;font-size:1em;padding-right:5px;}

Hope this helps,

I'm a little confused about how best to use the app on iOS devices, specifically iPad. (I have an iPhone as well, but one thing at a time.) I love the way Checkvist works on my laptop, with the keyboard; but how does it work with a touchscreen? The iOS keyboard disappears unless an active data entry area is active - so I can't type enter to add a new item unless I'm already in an item.

I saw mention somewhere that iPad users could use the regular web version of the app, and that some enhancements had been added for touchscreens. I'm missing something somewhere.

+Tad Davis the mobile app doesn't yet filter by due date but I expect it's coming soon.

In this situation (not often) on my phone I use the full/desktop site.

Is there a way of getting a summary of a task's repeat settings displayed alongside the task (ie. similarly to the way now the due data is displayed inline to the right of the task text)?

Would this be achievable with some custom css for example?

OK thanks +Kirill Maximov . It was only a minor detail -- no big deal.

I wonder if you guys would consider an improvement to the layout of the 'Due Repeat' dialogue/form?

Because of the linear layout of the day letters (M, T to S) and checkboxes, it often takes me more time than necessary to pick which checkboxes to select (process: "hmm, day labels are to the right of the checkbox, so for Tuesday it must be the checkbox to the left of the 'T' ")

Ideally the letters should be above or below the checkboxes, at least for me. It's possible I'm a bit visually dense, but hopefully Checkvist is for dense folk too ;)

Sounds great Sasha, thanks. It's only a minor detail, but Checkvist has many great little details so it will be in good company :)

Hi. Thanks for Checkvist. It is a great outliner.
As a suggestion, I would like the export options of the entire list, of all the entries in focus, and of an entry to be enlarged (docx, pdf ...). An export solution similar to Gingko App; The display option as Dynalist.io article.
In addition, the note printing option should not be indented.
I intend to test Checkvist at a law firm, replacing the MS Word job, but exporting the text is a problem for me.
I hope you can implement these features. Thx.

Hi Sidnei,

Thanks a lot for the feedback. We paid some attention to allow data to export from the Checkvist (see 'ex' keyboard shortcut), but the quality of such export is worse than we want it to be. And we would really want to improve it, so your comments are really valuable.

We'll collect feedback on this request here - https://checkvist.uservoice.com/forums/2121-general/suggestions/2770100-one-click-direct-google-docs-rtf-export, so I'll link your comment about export options.

I hope we'll improve export abilities of Checkvist in the coming year :)

Best,

Hi guys, I think I might remember enough CSS to make the necessary changes, but is there any kind of reference for the classes and such I'm looking for? Right now, I'd like to change the appearance of the due date when it's today, because it sometimes gets a little lost amongst the tags. Thanks!

I think you need something like

.dueDate.today {
background-color: darkorange;
color: white;
border-color: orange;
}

Would it work?

Global option or command to "Show/hide progress counter"

Bit of a nice-to-have but I really like the "progress counter" (shortcut: "pc") and think an option to show all/hide all would be really useful.

Would like to request the ability to change priority on mobile. That lack seriously hampers my use of CheckVist for mobile to-do lists: I often want to change the priority of an item rather than just mark it done or not done.

I just posted a new request on the UseVoice forum for Multiple Font Awesome icons on individual list items. https://checkvist.uservoice.com/forums/2121-general/suggestions/17721178-multiple-icons
I've been using the Font Awesome icon glyphs to great effect to differentiate list items as shown in the linked image. This has made it really user friendly for my clients to view a list I've shared with them and see the status of items, identify questions I have for them, and indicate when they've answered them in the list. I love it, and it's impressed clients. I'd like be able to include more than one icon on an item to expand on this (a...

Hello +Peter Thompson , please try CSS from this item: https://checkvist.com/checklists/486715/tasks/25364577
It replaces tags with meaningful icons (and keep them clickable for filtering, by the way).

Would it work for you?

Easier tag deletion?

One of the great Checkvist features is to be able to incrementally filter by tag by left clicking on the tag in a list.

Would, therefore it be possible to support right-click (say) on a tag to delete it from the item?

Hello, Checkvist team!

I just wanted to share: I've used multiple tools now to try organizing projects, notes, research, requirement specifications, etc., and I keep coming back to Checkvist, at least as my "working" tool (i.e., I don't use it yet for presentation of my work).

I've used Viewpath, MS Project, MS OneNote, Word docs, ReqView, etc., etc., so many I don't even remember them all. They are all missing some feature Checkvist has that has become a "gotta have it" ability for me, an/or they are overkill or too simple, and/or they are absurdly expensive...

Counterpoint Checkvist: A small but very capable team, openly communicating with their userbase, quickly responding to support issues and questions, and always improving their application's capabilities. You guys are fantastic, and Checkvist is fantastic.

So, THANKS! I really don't what I'd do without Checkvist.

Cheers~

maybe a dumb question, but what is the purpose/meaning of an "invalidated" task?
3
Kirill Maximov (KIR)'s profile photoPeter Thompson's profile photo

Want to throw in: I use invalidated items in my personal lists and my professional lists to indicate an item that a) occurred to someone at one point, so it should be documented, and b) for one reason or another, the item has been invalidated, and I can detail why in a note added to the item.

I find this incredibly useful as, for my personal items, I can remind myself why I didn't execute or complete the item. For example, I keep thinking I should by some item next time I'm at the hardware store, but I've previously determined that I don't really need that item, or it won't work, and "here's why..."

In my professional lists, it's most often recording an idea, suggestion, or task that explicitly is not to be carried forward, developed, or executed. But, rather than just deleting the item, I've got I record that I've already proposed it and it's been unfavored in lieu of another solution, or why it's a bad idea, etc. This provides detailed notes for me in future jobs, and for the client as they consider future work, how and why to avoid covering ground they've already deemed fruitless.

In some cases, it's detailing what didn't work and why that can lead to efficient and effective results in the future, a faster path to innovation and results.

Honor numbered lists?

Dear Checkvlist,

On markdown export of a [1] numbered list, the export function outputs
- item1
- item2

instead of the correct markdown
1. item1
1. item2


Thank you for your time in reading.

Hello Josh,

Thanks for the suggestion - it is quite a valid point. I'll add it to our list of export enhancements, but I cannot promise we'll fix it soon, such a fix is not trivial, given that we have different view options as for whole list, and for the separate branches.

Thank you,

Sort by Modified date ?

Would it be possible to add a sort by modified date (DESC)?

It would help in two ways:
1. Finding items recently changed/added
2. Finding items that haven't been touched for a while (and may be obsolete?)

This cannot be done with filters

Thanks for the suggestion, I cannot promise we'll implement it soon, but please vote for checkvist.uservoice.com - Sort by modified date (aka 'last update')

By the way, recently updated items can be found with "changed: 1d" filter, not a solution, but a workaround.

Are there shortcuts or efficient ways to navigate long lists. For example, a shortcut to go to the end of a list or the beginning of a list. I see there is a shortcut to move an item to the top or bottom of a list. But is there a way to just navigate through long lists? Thanks.
