  1. Enable labels or categories for tasks

    Just like how it is in Trello, for reporting purposes maybe or simply to group and view all tasks belonging to the same category. This helps identify duplicate or similar tasks that can be merged or omitted.

              • Enable quoting team members on task description or comments

                That way, they easily get the notification. Just like how it is in Slack, Trello, and Asana. And, if it is possible, can Workast use the same username to tag other members and not generate a new one for consistency?

                        • Add comment to task from slack channel.

                          Our team would find it hugely beneficial to add a comment on a task from the slack channel (by replying to thread on the todo notification) where our team works because many people who are not the creator or assignee need to add a comment to the task (e.g. a tech lead giving tips). Currently adding a comment by replying to the thread on the todo notification works only in the todobot window and not a slack channel. In this case the tech lead will not see the todo because since it is not assigned to him he will not…

                              If subtasks feature will be approved, I hope this feature will be considered as well. It makes task organization easier.

                              • Need better reminder options

                                "Send a reminder when a task is due" can be set to "on due date" and at five minute intervals up to 60 minutes before the due date. Personally I don't need the five minute steps and doubt that these are of much use, but I would love to see reminders "one day", "two days" and "one week" before the due date.

                                Some tasks simply take longer than five minutes to complete.

                                • More options for repeating tasks

                                  Can there be a more granular option for days that the task repeats? Just having an option for weekdays would be nice, but an option to pick individual days would be even better... like under Daily Reminders.

                                      I use plugins, especially "Editorial Calendar," to organize articles from multiple contributors and keep on track. It would be useful to support WordPress in some way, even if it's a separate plugin.
