New note defaults to Today's date


It would be great if you could set a new note to default to Today's date. So many times I just want to write a quick reminder like "Call Jan" and I find it cumbersome to have to open the date box and then click today's date.

Also why doesn't the date box just appear open anyway as a default?

Hello David,

thank you very much for your suggestion, we appreciate it and may consider adding it in the future.

For now, please note that quick adding tasks is super easy if you navigate just with your keyboard. Simply click Ctrl+Q to quick-add a task, type the name, hit the TAB key to get to the date field and type "tod" and Todoist will understand this date as "today". Hit Enter to save this task.

You can use many short dates as listed here: http://todoist.com/Help/timeInsert

Best regards,

Thanks for the reply. Yes it works, but it is very clunky and geeky. Could be so much better streamlined to fit in with the aesthetic and tone of the rest of the site.
