    Develop an API, or at the minimum some way to export projects, groups, tasks, possibly via XML.

    • Conditional formatting

      Perhaps more useful for larger projects but conditional format rules where colours, sizes, fonts and weights are determined by simple logic would be useful, e.g. if tag = 'client' and remaining effort = '10' then display task as 10% darker. The same boolean logic could be used to filter tasks and customise views.

      • Can show all running projects in one timeline view

        I have three projects set up and it would be great if they could all show up on the one timeline summary thus creating an effective "to do"list for the next week.

        • The name of a group and a task is displayed in pop-up.

          When seeing the whole, it is small and may be unable to read the name of a group or a task.
          If a name is displayed when Mouse is put, all the tasks can be known comfortably.

          • The function which writes description to a group

            It is intelligible if there is explanation of a group.

              • Focusing...

                One of the things that makes Workflowy.com so nice is its ability to let me drill down into a specific branch of a task. You might support that, as well, but it's not easy for me to find out how. Your filters do not default to "level" or subtree and in Workflowy this is a very easy 1-click operation. It's important because it facilitates breaking up difficult and complex tasks into manageable pieces.

                  Would be great if we could sync with Any.DO, another great app which is complementary to DropTask

                  • Allow colourless groups / not make colours inherited

                    Love being able to nest groups within groups, but forcing everything to be the colour of the top level group is an unnecessary constraint, I believe. I may want to group things into very broad departments or ideas, and then use colours to define different aspects of that task within it.

                    The simple solution I can see is to either allow colourless groups - simply rings to sit at a top level that border them but don't affect anything below - or remove the forced inheritance of colour from the highest group (perhaps can still default to this, but allow…

                    • Meeting task

                      Being able to use a task as a meeting, having the ability to assign the meeting to people similar to a task but have them accept or reject the meeting.

                      Similar to having them assigned to the task but if they reject they aren't removed, just appear disabled.

                      • Share project with added contacts

                        I create a project. Added few dummy contacts for test. You have 'Share project' feature but that does not allow me to share the project with the existing contacts. It just goes ahead and send an email even if that email is added into contacts.

                        • Blocked items and commune items

                          If you have a event to prepare. You are sometimes depending on the work of somebody els. If he doesnt finish his task, the rest can't continu. If this would be visual the presure would be higher :)

                          Next: Commune items. Some tasks are part of 2 groups. Mayby it would be chaos but on the other hand it can make your scedule more accurate...

                          • Reference tasks

                            It would be extremely useful if a task (within a Comment or Description) could reference another task. This is -extremely- common and I imagine it would be widely used.

                            • Add the ability to automatically merge two tasks into a new group

                              It would be handy if I were able to take two tasks and "aggregrate" them (i.e. drop one into another, hence merging the tasks) into a group. For example, if I had a task for "color scheme" and a task for "font", dragging one into the other would merge the two tasks (similar to how iOS treats dragging two apps into one another) into a folder/group I could then name "Graphic Design".

                                    • replacing JIRA with droptask

                                      Would be awesome to replace JIRA with this. Features to add would be source control integration and workflows. It would be great to have a "DONE" button that can be clicked when task is completed and the task would know where to go next in the workflow. I was going to build something like that myself but I see you are moving in the right direction with droptask so you get my idea free of charge. Another thing to think about is integration with downstream / upstream systems in non intrusive ways. Messaging would be great. AMQP for example.

                                      • graphic image for the projects homepage

                                        why not to allow the use of an image, facebook cover page style for the long rectangle that displays the name of a project. It would visually identify and give a personality to the project, improving sensemaking for the different projects.

                                          When I'm looking at some group in group I can't move screen with my mouse, because I'm moving that particular group.
