  1. 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.

      • View due activities organized by due date

        The dashboard has "due today" . The report allows us to select items due in a date range. Would love to include an option that organizes the activities by due date, either in a report or dashboard

        • 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.

            • Order tasks by due-date from the Slack app

              This would be very helpful when using Slack on a mobile device so that you do not have to open the To-Do Bot website which is a bit clunky on a mobile device. That way you can simply see - from your phone - what needs to get done today.

              • Integrate with calendar apps etc on WordPress

                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.

                            Want more of the functionality to be in Slack, especially just "seeing" type things. I want to see ALL the tasks!

                                        • Ability to swap assigned users

                                          Add the ability to swap the currently assigned user(s) with another user.

                                          ex. `/todo TXXX swap @anotheruser` to change the assigned user to someone else
                                          ex. `/todo TXXX swap` to change it to me

                                          This would allow easy transition of daily persistent tasks such as "who is on call" tasks. As it is now, you would need to assign/un-assign every time.
