Todo.txt for Chrome – Updates to the task editor, and more

version 2017.0703.4.22

Task editing updates

Changes made to task editor to add date selectors, support completed tasks, and more:

Edit dates using date selector

You may now edit task dates – due dates & completion dates – using a date selector, instead of typing them in. The original method of just typing them works too.

Add completed tasks

Add completed tasks by starting them with ‘x‘. E.g.:

x Added new filtering options to filter by dates, completion status, and (no) priority

If no date is specified after ‘x’, the completion date is set as today. You may also use the date selector to choose another completion date.

Edit completed tasks

You may now edit completed tasks, including completion dates, priority, projects, etc.

Also, the tag for priorities on completed tasks now uses a lowercase ‘pri:‘, instead of the earlier title case ‘Pri:‘.

Use cleaner, multiple task editor by default

If you like keeping your task editor clean, you can set up the multiple task editor as your default task adding screen. This setting is available under Options > Other Settings.

This setting only changes the behaviour of Add Task button. The keyboard shortcuts still open the single add task editor (a​), and multiple add task editor (m).

Task list changes

Confirm task delete

Deleting a task – from button or keyboard shortcut (#) – will now create a confirm prompt. This is a safety precaution to prevent data loss, since task deletion is irreversible.

Changed order of dates for task lists

The order in which dates are listed below a task in the list has been updated to:

  1. Task creation date, followed by
  2. Due date (if any), and
  3. Task completion date (if complete)

If you encounter any bugs/issues, or have suggestions for changes, please do let me know using the feedback form.
