Link To-Do dates with Timeline

Link To-Do dates with Timeline

Sorry if this question has been asked already. I just wonder if it is possible to sync to-do list (tasks with dates) in a timeline - that would be very useful. Every time you create a to-do list with date to have the same entry in your timeline. Otherwise you need to do this twice!?

It would be awesome if to-do deadlines synced or were automatically added to the timeline. Maybe as a greyed out underlay or icon?

Sometimes projects have checkpoints where stakeholder approval is desired. Having capability of capturing approvals would be helpful. A variant of the To Do checkbox, where the text is not crossed through, would be great.

Maybe I'm missing something, but Timeline is quite useless if to-dos with a due date are not added automatically to it.

Otherwise, I wish the Paper team could have added the ability to drag the to-dos to a specific date on the timeline.

This sort of functionality already exists in other apps, such as notion.io which allows you to display tasks in a variety of formats (calendar, kanban, detail board). I like dropbox paper more than notion.io because it runs faster and feels more lightweight, but I suppose that comes at a cost. I would love to see a way to at least display my tasks in a timeline or calendar view though, even if it wasn't as fully featured as the timeline widget.

I like this idea, and was thinking about something similar.  We have set things up as a single document for every project and each project has a to do list. My wish would be a dropdown in a new to do item that would allow you to select the project and then the to do associated with the project.

 

To me, adding a to-do item to the calendar automatically means you are instantly going to work on it. How would Paper lnow what day and for how many days you'd be working on that to do? What if your team likes to plan ahead (I know, that's a dream of mine too!) and wants to set up a to-do list for a project next month just to do forecasting. I'd want to pick when I'll be working on particular projects/to-do list items.

 

I'd also love to assign the number of hours I'd be working on that to-do for each day like Float allows you to do.

 

This might be a bit different than what you are requesting so I think I'll also add this as a separate feature request.
