    I saw on to-do list that there is “handling of TODO lists” item. I wonder what is your idea about how it could look like and work. I’ve recently tested Taskcoach but it lacks easy notes handling. I wish Cherrytree had to-do/task feature. At present I use Cherrytree for all my notes and tasks. It is often the case that a task became a note or a note became a task. I think an entry in a tree could have an option to mark it as a task and then in additional pane could be visible some other task options like user defined category colums or % of accomplished action. With ability to have to ctd files open at the same time it would work great.
    Basically KDE Korganizer has nice to-do/task organizer but it lacks ability to edit notes directly. User has to open description do edit it, which is very inconvinient.
    Definitely linux lacks a good full featured task manager. Windows task managers and PIM’s can be a good example how it is possible to do it, for example Leadertask or Total organizer (this one is freeware and can be installed on WINE to check it).

    Maybe task feature is not a priority for you, but I’m curious what do you think about it.

    Hi, I will take a look to total organizer when I’ll work on TODO lists.
    The implementation of a table where the columns are the days of the week and it’s possible to link to a tree node for a day/time is the most probable, the complexity will depend from the effort it will take and the free time I’ll found.
    Cheers.

    Great. If you use MS Windows you may also want to look at Leadertask. It has trial version. But I failed to install it on WINE

    There is also an open source to-do organizer written in python – Chandler.
    http://chandlerproject.org/
    Please, have a look and imagine that this middle pane is in Cherrytree, and when user add a new branch to a tree and mark it as a task it shows up in this pane. When it is not marked it is regular note. This middle pane and right pane would allow to set status (now, later) or date … and show content as it is in Chandler. If both programs Chandler and Cherrytree could be combined into one it could be a great PIM.
    Just an another idea :)

    The merge of cherrytree with another project is not in my plans.

    As you write this idea is easy, simple, clean and exportable as text.
    I think it’s a good one, I’ll probably work on it soon.
    Best regards,
    Giuseppe.

    I came across another to-do program ThinkingRock
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/thinkingrock/#screenshots
    http://www.trgtd.com.au/index.php
    What is good in it, is that it also has a tree (although very simple) and description pane and task pane.
    I imagine that to-do in Cherrytree can look similar. The window that has now notes I’d divide and below would leave notes and in the upper part (pane) I’d list the branches (nodes) in a tree that are marked as tasks. What is important, if possible, I suggest adding possibility to move this tasks up and down in order of priority. Neither ThinkingRock nor Chandler nor Korganizer nor Osmo has this feature.
    That would be enough for me.
    I don’t want to have another complicated PIM, only simple solution where a note can become a task and a task can become a note.

    Would that be possible the way I imagine it?

    Hi,
    if you press Alt+Up or Alt+Down you’ll move the underlying text row (and so a list item as well) up and down.

    I found a nice todo / task manager application gtd-free. So you might consider this request invalid. I think you may want to focus on more important request, more related to primary Cherrytree character.
    Cheers.
