Thanks for the quick reply! Good to know this is coming … I am brand new to the Agenda Universe, but so far really liking what I see…

Great app with nice design but i have to say that i was pretty dissapointed with the tag support.

Changing tag color seems trivial but it allows to easily identify the tags you’re looking for.
i.e I want to have a tag called ‘in progress’ and be able to easily find it when looking into my projects.

Also regarding checked lists. Not sure if i missed it but is it possible to change it order by drag and drop or some other way? i.e i’d like to more the 10th item on top of the list

More powerful tagging options, as well as a tag editor/browser is indeed on our wish list too.

Same here, more list manipulation issues are among The features we are working on right now…


#48

That is a really good suggestion.


#49

Hi, any chance to add a feature by which the items “checked” within a checklist would automatically migrate to top/bottom (at user’s choice) of the list?


#50

This is a popular request, among the The features we are working on right now…

Is this accurate? When I drag a file into Agenda it wants to attach the file. I just want a shortcut to the file. CTRL-Click doesn’t work in MacOSX cause it is a shortcut for right click. Is there another way to create a shortcut to a file in the finder? I don’t need too open the file.


#53

This is indeed outdated, we’ll update it. If you want to create a link instead of attaching a copy of the file you can do so by holding the Control key during the drag.


#54

Thanks for that. As I said, I can’t use the Control with the trackpad because it invokes the right lick menu and I don’t know how to change that … my reading so far tells me I can’t.

So do you know if there is another way to get a link in? I tried creating an alias and dragging it in but that didn’t work.

Thanks again.


#55

Someone in another thread just said the secret was to start the drag and then hold the Control key, which works. You could maybe write that somewhere.

All good now. Deb

In addition to a tag-browser, I would really like to see tag auto-complete. It is difficult to remember the exact phrasing I used for a tag a while ago, but auto-completing (and allowing me to select between matching alternatives) would help a lot.

Cheers, Niklas

I’m not seeing this option when I search on a date either when creating the search or when saving it. (I have premium features)


#58

It doesn’t work with dates in the search string (eg #due(today)) unfortunately, but it should work with dates you set in the calendar filter to the left of the search field. These are the dates that relate to the notes themselves. If you have one set, you should see an option to make the dates move in time.


#61

I think also that the integration of macOS tags would be very useful. My tag structure on macOS and Agenda.app are mostly the same.


#62

@drewmccormack @support This would be a dream come true! Any updates?


#63

We just introduced this in the last update. It will not show just the matching line, but it will match any note that has a paragraph with that due date.

So…first put a #due tag in your note, with some date (eg #due(7 days)). Now simply Search All for something like #due(tomorrow), and save the search. When you save the search, it will ask if you want to keep the dates relative. You should do that, so the due date moves (eg tomorrow is always tomorrow).

Kind regards,
Drew


#64

Hello @drewmccormack, thank you for your prompt response. Does this update allow the due date tags to create a calendar event? That is what we were hoping to achieve.

Thank you!


#65

No, due date tags are unrelated to calendar events I’m afraid.

#67

Is there a technical or UX justification for not permitting spaces, commas, or periods in tags? For example, as I write notes related to software releases it would be convenient for me to tag notes with a semver string (i.e., “1.0.4”), but Agenda doesn’t let me do that.
