Please add an additional filed in the task for: Status (see details below)
I would like to be able to filter my open todos with this field
This option is already available. You can add a label to any task using the following format: @labelname. For example, if you add a @started label to a task, you can click on it to see all tasks with this label, click on the @ link below the search box to view all labels and even include this label in custom searches.
In the @ menu (the full list of all your labels), you can also change the colors of each label making them more distinguishable - each status can have a separate color.
I am aware of this option and its ok, but not great. And we want things to be great.
Just like you already have a field for the priority, it would serve for the convenience of the daily process of managing tasks, to have a field that you can easily pick the status from, with one finger touch.
Having a status drop down would be nice. But I think it should be implemented by expanding the checkbox. And be a user enabled option.
If option is enabled then:
On creation of a task it is 'unmarked' - the None option
Then touching the box makes it the 'next action' - now we can search on all our next actions
Then touching it again makes it 'complete'
I don't understand the difference between 'started' and 'in process' above. But any other status' could be accessed through a dropdown/long press on the 'checkbox'.
I agree with Lahav, this is a must have feature!!!!!!
