Quick Add Defaults

Post  nascent on Thu Sep 15, 2011 4:39 pm

Hi, just to start, I use both your gadgets and greatly love them. So thank you.

I do have a suggestion with the Quick Add/new task dialog for I Forgot The Milk:

I love being able to add tasks quickly, however with the Quick Add dialog empty by default, I have to find and select the Inbox list, and then select a priority (always use 3 the lowest by default) before I can then select the name field and type my actual task. I'd love to have an advanced option to select a default list, and default priority, and even to put the focus on the Name field so that I can type the task name and add it.

I know not everyone's lists are the same, so maybe making the default as Inbox (as everyone has it) if there's no way to select a preferred default list, and being able to choose the default property as another option DefaultPriority=3, and maybe FocusName=true or something like that to be able to be able to just type immediately after clicking new.

I think these small changes would dramatically improve usability and speed up productivity, I tend to have 2 or 3 tasks at a time, so the faster I can type them all in the better.

Please do consider this suggestion as I use this gadget all the time, and such an improvement would be incredible for me, and I'm sure others would benefit from them also.

Many thanks,

I have put your suggestions on the todo list - however, I don't plan to modify the gadget in the very near feature.

Btw, please check https://www.rememberthemilk.com/help/answers/tasks/defaultlist.rtm for setting a default list. This setting is also used by the gadget (it takes a while until RTM API returns the change, and the gadget needs to be restarted).
