Create tags with #

The twitteresque convention would be to use # instead of @ to denote tags.

It's note a big deal, but since donecal.com is so young there is still time to change this.

Comments:

I like it - also @ could be reused for approximation of time spent eg. #project-x @30m

What happens to old tags using @? Do we need to change them to #?

Response:

Done! You can now use the # sign instead. In fact you can mix # and @ (for backwards compatability).

If you switch to using # instead you'll have to reload once for the autocomplete to pick it up.

Videos, pictures, audio (journal like)

Maybe integration for real time sharing, like pictures, videos or audio - short clips of what special events are happening at any particular day.

Sounds Good

Ability to modify time/hours from Month view

Add hours to the options in the pop-up/tooltip

This is related to my request below.

Sounds Good to Me

Import from Google Calendar

It would be very useful to be able to import an entire Google Calendar into DoneCal. It would take the events and block out hours for them automatically.

Comments:

I like this Alot

Any plans on this happening? Either that, or have the options of entering recurring events, so I can calculate a whole year of schedule at one time. Can't do that by entering single day events. It would take forever.

Different colors for different tags

Different colors for different tags on the calendar would help to visually differentiate what was worked on during a day/week/month.

Comments:

the more events I input, the more it makes sense. A full blue month is impossible to read :)

Daily email asking for input

I don't want to forget to add stuff to DoneCal so I'd love to receive an email every day at, say, 9pm which I could reply with my daily entries (one per line for example).

Comments:

I don't think DoneCal needs to necessarilly send an email, but I like being able to add entries via email.

Response:

This has now been implemented. Click on Email reminders

It only supports replying to emails sent to you but in the future you're going to be able to send straight in without replying to an email.

Support "for xxx hours/mins"

I realize this might be beyond the current scope of DoneCal, but it would be nice if I could use "for xxx hours/mins" or "@1hr/@10mins" (see above FR comment to change tag from @ to #) or some similar language to denote the length of an activity.

HTTPS for everything

As soon as you're logged in everything, including the HTTP API, should be over HTTPS

Mobile optimized HTML-frontend

A very common use case for me is using calendars on the go with my Android handset. The normal HTML front-end is not unusable on it, but isn't really optional either.

Vote up

CalDAV export of calendar

A CalDAV export link would mean I can import my DoneCal events into Google Calendar.
Ideally it should be possible to have multiple CalDAV exports depending on tag(s).

I like this

API method to edit individual events

In fact, various other bits added to the API for manipulating and previewing individual events by ID

Vote up

HTTPS for the login

Any time you enter your email address and/or password that that happens over HTTPS

Vote up

A "Home/Calendar" link at the top of the page

Having a "Home/Calendar" link in the header somewhere would make the page easier to use. It's not really intuitive to look for page navigation links in the footer.

Vote up

A bug reporting form

It'd be easier (for all, I think) to have a form to report bugs then to email Peter directly.

What about an input from twitter?

FAQ page

The FAQ page should include an answer about why DoneCal is better or different from Google Calendar

Comments:

I am curious about his

Vote up

It´s not working!

Suddenly DoneCal is over. The calendar didn´t show. What´s happening?

Vote up

PDF export

Perhaps the PDF could not just summorize the tags and stuff but also lay out each event as a stream of news.

Would also be nice if I could export only certain tags to the PDF.

Comments:

Being able to export to PDF or print would be a very useful feature :)

Vote up

Ability to Print the Calendar

It would be nice to have a print version feature which excludes all the buttons at the bottom, and other stuff, and lays out the monthly view in landscape mode neatly and beautifully.

Weeknumbers

How you people out there can have calender without weeknumers implemented?

You can add your own feature requests too!
