Task tallies


Is there a way to get task totals in more areas. For example, on my phone I get the notification badge on the icon, which shows all of the tasks for that day, but then when I open the app, it would be nice to see the total number of tasks in the view I am in (for example in the Today view, it would be helpful to see a number in parentheses or something so that as I go along my day, I can see the total tasks I have left. When I go to the menu, it lists the totals for Today and the next seven days, but that is it. None of the filters I have created (tomorrow, each day of the week, tasks with no due date, priority 1, etc...) show a number next to them and I can get a total by project or by label, but what I am really looking for is a total by day (today, tomorrow, thursday, friday, etc...).

Same thing for the web interface - I see the totals per project on the side, but once I am in a view (today+overdue, tomorrow, Wednesday, etc...) on the main section of the page there is no tally - it would be helpful to have that directly to the right of the title (i.e, Today Tue Sept. 10 (54) )

This feature would not only be motivational as I see the number getting smaller throughout the day, but it would also be incredibly helpful as I am planning my week and I would have an at a glance view of how many tasks I've assigned to each day to help keep it within a realistic number.

Hi Eva,

Thank you very much for the suggestion. We will consider adding this to all views and custom filters in the future. For now feel free to add this to our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/
