I have a hard time seeing an overview of a day. I know that I can see “TODAY” or what’s on the Agenda. But what if I want next month? I think that nicely integrated mini calendar could improve the workflow of the app a lot.
The Related Panel (right side panel) has a lot of potential. A full month mini-calendar on the top would be great. It could open the doors for some other functionality:
Click on a date and below you get the list of calendar events AND notes (just title) for that day.
The notes missing from this view is something that I think this app is missing. I know that you can get all notes on a date from the search. But please compare this:
Search method: Click search> Click the calendar icon > Click to your date > Click date. (3-4 clicks before you get your notes for the day.) Then you see them all, you may also need to do some scrolling if the notes are not minimized.
Mini-calendar: click date > click desired note from list.
Double Click on a date makes a new note for that day.
Compare how to make a note on a date:
Current Method: Click Plus > Select Project > Enter title (that is immediate focus) + hit enter > click calendar icon > find and click on date > (maybe attach to calendar event) > click save. In my opinion that is a lot of work to get a note on a date!
Mini-calendar: double-click date > select project (if not in a project folder) > start editing.
I don’t think it’s necessary to get rid of the “+” icon to add a new note. But I do think that getting the least amount of friction from beginning to end for the user is best.
Selecting a date range displays a good summary list
Some indicators in the mini-calendar (little orange dots perhaps) to show that notes exist for that day.
That’s all for now. Thanks for the nice app! I’m looking forward to more changes coming!
