Yes that would be greatly useful
There are so many time tracking web apps already out there, that you just need to develop the integration with them (something like Todoist has done with PomodoroApp). The time management app is given permission to see the moo.do tasks and then it allows you to track the time spent in each task.
I understand the need/desire for simplicity. But it could be an optional feature that only advance users of big /complex projects would use. For everyone else they just need to know it's possible in case they need it.
What I've done is that my very first line in the outline is called Inbox, and that's where I put all my quick notes in the Windows and Web App.
In android they have a widget that allows you to quickly add an idea to some kind of clipboard that holds many ideas until you have time to actually move them to the proper position.
In the windows app and web app I haven't seen anything similar, but definitely a good idea perhaps would be to have a default Inbox branch where all this quick notes would go.
Definetely, after all it's the same data structure underlying, it's just the way you present it. (Ok you might have to add bidimensional coordinates to hold the items in their place, but shouldn't be too much work). The result would be amazing.
I am evaluating your app and it looks great in almost every way, except the fact that for people bringing their data from other outliners (Todoist, ListPro, MindJet) the ability to import notes is essential.
Ideally I should be able to share an individual task or a single branch of tasks inthe outline with a person. When I add the +John in the task description, this task and it's sub tasks should be shared automatically with John.
Since this doesnt'seem to be the case and the sharing level is established at the whole file level, then it's logical that you should be able to have 2 or more files opened simultaneously.
The use case is that you have
A) Personal Outlines (your own personal task and projects)
B) Family Outlines (family projects in which several family members share and participate)
C) Job Projects (this people should definitely not be able to see the other groups). Inside you might be a team member in different projects which involve different teams and whose task outlines shouldn't be mixed.
D) Entrepreneur Projects (definitely not to be seen by the Job team members)
Because obviously these identifies different groups of people with their own visibility, it definitely is clear that being able to see all your tasks from all your projects together is desirabel without needing to switch between the groups described above constantly.
So either enable the sharing at the task level, or enable having several files open simultaneously
In fact.. not only estimates but in general you should be able to add custom attributes that are of type Text, DAte, Number
Definitely needed so that we can import information from other outliners like list Pro
Even huge/sold companies, like Google and Microsoft, have been known for discontinuing products that have wide acceptance. So data export is an essential piece of gaining trust from users, and ensuring comittment fears are minimized.
As a user of a startup new product/service... there is always a big concern regarding an exit strategy in case the product/service fails and disappears (along with all the time you have dedicated to input and maintain the data it has).
Exporting OPML files provides a super easy exit strategy that brings peace of mind to potential new users, and insurance against the company failing.
In conclusion, it makes it easier for us to put our trust in your product/service.
