I haven't had much time to work on this lately, but I've recently come up with a new possible design and I'd like some opinions.

 

In the current version there is the "orb" menu in the upper-left corner. For version 2 I'm choosing to go with a new menu design. Here is a mockup of what I was thinking:

GlobalMenu.png

 

Is this acceptable or would everyone prefer a more traditional menubar with toolbar actions?

 

Secondly, I was thinking about the left-side design and was thinking of moving the focus, project, context, ... buttons from the toolbar (in order to minimize its height) over to the left, like this:

twopane.png

 

The nice part about this is that it would support drag and drop properly so you can more easily move tasks from projects to contexts, etc.

 

The other way I was think was to combine everything into a giant list in the sidebar, but I had originally tried that with version 1 and it wasn't too popular.

 

Either way, I would like to hear from everyone on these designs. And, if you have better suggestions I welcome those, too. I want to make the workflow a lot more streamlined and better for everyone.

 

Thanks!

I have the ribbon minimized.

 

I like the new way better. Looks nice.

How about the sidebar? Do you like the separate buttons like in the screenshot or would you like them combined?

In what way do you want to combine them?

@Peter:

What I was thinking was like in the second screenshot where you see "Collect" and "Focus". I was thinking of continuing along that line with "Projects", "Contexts", etc.

 

@Catman51:

I think unless there are any objections I will continue down this path.

 

As an FYI, there will be a new Windows 1.x update late tonight/early tomorrow. I'm sorry about the delay.

I'm sorry if this isn't the right place for this but I have a suggestion.  I would like the option of looking at the 'week' view and seeing a list of that week's tasks instead of having to select each day to see the tasks for that day. That way if I have a few minutes free, I might be able to jump ahead more easily.  Just a thought.

 

Love the program.  I have been looking at several task/project systems and really like what you've done so I just purchased. Thanks!

Its great, but it would be more great to redraw icons and windows in new style. I think it would be looking great in minimalistic win8 style, like Office2013.

And as there was already said it needs a week view, to see a grid of tasks, like in calendars.

@conkling: This is the perfect place to ask for this. And, I'm reworking the entire week view because, like you, I'm not sure it's 100% useful in its current state.

@balabunat: I had actually tried this late last year and I found that the amount of whitespace was awful. I tried filling up the space with data, but on a 1920x1200 monitor it was just plain ugly (I also feel this way about Office 2013). So, right now I'm trying to find a good balance between the two. I do want it to look more modern, but not stark like the current trend in Windows software. I think Microsoft has taken the flat design a little too far. So, it's a work in progress, which I hope to get back to as I've had to divert my attention back to version 1 in order to get it stable.
