I follow the procedure you suggest but, unfortunately, when I try to view my metrics by tapping All Entries the app closes.

  • Team LightArrow { Hi Janus, Thank you for reaching out to us and for the very kind words. You can currently achieve this by creating a project status and naming it "Archived" for example. Make sure to set the "Hide" field of this status to Yes. Now when you assign this status to your projects the projects will be hidden from the project lists. You can create a project status from the "Tasks+Projects" topic by tapping on the "Project Statuses" tile. Please let us know if you have any further questions. We are always happy to help.

  • Janus Guttmann-Fich { Hi LightArrow people, Thank you for all your hard work and an outstanding product in LifeTopix! The only thing I miss is the ability to mark a project completed and then have it automatically be hidden from view. I believe it is a very important function when using any TM system, especially GTD. I find it very frustrating to have to chose between on one hand, keeping completed projects and having them clutter up my overview of my projects list, and on the other hand deleting completed projects but then losing the possibility to review past learning experiences. Am I the only one with this challenge? All the best, Janus } – Jul 20, 1:26 PM

  • Marcin { Hi there, new features are awsom. But i have few issues and ideas: - context menu: in every context we can choce what app is showing: open, open and close, close. And let say we have 5 open tasks and 5 close tasks in context @office. On "folder" @office is shown number of tasks which belongs to that context tag. So in that case is shown 10. But in my opinion would be much better if it shown number of just open tasks. And when we clear all topix belong to that context it shown zero (for when is some number it means that are still some topix not done) - context menu - multiple context view. In my opinion when i choice for example @office and let say #phonecall it should filter just topix which have those two context. Not every topix which include at least one of them. - hot list. When some topic which was on the hot list is done should automaticly be removed from hot list. Also i would like to have see on my hot list just topix for today.

  • Andrea { Hi, I have just noticed that since the last update today, there seem to be no visualisations in the Plot/Line/Bar views in Log Forms (while in single Log items these visualisations are still there.) In the Log Forms, the dates on the x-axis also seem screwed up - in all of my Log Forms they currently range from 11.7.14 to 22.7.14 (so many of them are from the future) and there are many double dates on the axis. I hope this will be fixed in a future update. I would also like to suggest, that in Log Forms where one logs different log items that all use the same metric (e.g. minutes per day), that these different curves in the visualisations should be displayed in absolute proportion to one another. Up til now the single log items in the log forms were only displayed relative to their own range of logged values. For example, if you have a log form that combines the log itmes Running per day and Cycling per day - and you normally run between 60 and 90 minutes per day, but cycle between 30 and 300 minutes per day, the visualisations in the combined Log Form... } – Jul 16, 1:51 PM

  • Team LightArrow { Hi Larry, Thank you for reaching out to us. MS Exchange supports many forms of authentication. Our Exchange support has only been tested for Exchange Online hosted by Microsoft. Supported configuration includes IMAP4 for “Exchange Online” with SSL/TLS option. The Exchange port number for IMAP is usually set to 993 in most corporate environments. We currently do not support some typical corporate Exchange environments, such as the Microsoft NTLM authentication and others. This is due to the limitations of the underlying 3rd party technology we use in our apps. We are working on making our support of Exchange broader over future updates, starting with LifeTopix 8.1.2 and Pro.Inbox 1.1.2 next week, and updates after that. We would appreciate it if you could find out the supported methods of authentication that are being used in your corporate MS Exchange server and send us a list of these. This would help us greatly. Should you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact us again. Best Regards, Team LightArrow Austin TX } – Jul 15, 3:47 PM
  • LightArrow { Hi Lisa, Thank you for reaching out! We think you are referring to the "Routines" feature (Daily/Weekly/Monthly rotating schedules of mixed bag of items) we had originally intended for 8.1 (the release that came out last week). Because of the number of big changes in that update, we moved the Routines feature and some other things to 8.1, currently targeted for mid September. We will look at CopApp, but out first priority will be to get the schedules feature in our app itself.

    Hello,
    When last I visited this web site, I saw that accommodation for rotating, repeat work schedules was going to be added to the Life Topix app sometime in July (2014). Any thoughts? Actually if Life Topix could be made to sync with the “CopApp” work scheduling app it would be perfect. Because of my rotating shift schedule I find myself using CopApp more but it is very basic. I purchased Life Topix so all would be consolidated in one place and I would rather use Life Topix but will go nuts switching back and forth.
    Thank You,
    Lisa

    I love the way the app is improving but I’m seeing a few inconsistencies with the tasks. I am sometimes able to associate a note with a project and sometimes it will let me associate it with a task, but I’ve found it doesn’t always show the entire list of notes I have so I can’t always associate the note I need with the task or project I’m working on. I also lost an entire note today that has been an ongoing list of dates for a couple months. That note wasn’t even open at the time none I’m lost. Is there something I’m missing in saving the on notes and associating them. Thank you

      Hello Karen,

      Thank you for reaching out to us, and for your kind words.

      High-level Topic objects like Project, Notes, Events, ServiceProviders, etc. can contain a lot to types of other objects. Note that tasks are not high-level topic objects. But, tasks can be associated with another Topic object.

      If you want to see the entire list of notes regardless of what objects they are associated with, go to “My Topics” –> “Notes + Files, Lists” –> Notes.

      Did you check the Recent view (the clock icon in the left navigation menu) for the lost note? Also, if you remember anything about the title of the lost note, you may be able to search for it in the search view (search icon in the left navigation menu).

      We would be happy to assist you over the phone to clear any confusion. Please let us know.

    Unusable for many unless the font size is enlarged. It’s a shame, it would be an amazing problem-solving app otherwise.

      Hi Patty,

      Thanks for reaching out. We improved the readability in 8.0 with better contrast on the font and the text colors. We totally agree that we need to support larger font sizes as an option. We apologize we have not done that yet, after saying we’d do it for a long time. 8.0 just became too big an update with several much-awaited things and we had to get it out as it took such a long time. We are not stopping there – we’ll continue with usability enhancements. If you have already updated to 8.0, do you mind letting us know which views you’d prefer the option to set larger font sizes first? It helps us to prioritize and get it done in pieces, quicker.

    Love the look of version 8.

    I’ve already written in about the multiple clicks needed to mark a task as done, but I’ve got a few other things I want to mention along those lines:

    1] Getting things done is taking me longer. I expect that when I click on something [a task, an event, project, etc.] that click will open the item. Instead I have to make another click to open the item. I think I understand why you’ve changed this a bit, but I much prefer having the old way back where I click to the right of the item [where the three dots were] to access a menu of actions I want to perform.
    2] You’ve changed the way all tasks are viewed/sorted. Used to be I could have the tasks listed and the sort feature above the task window would allow me to show All, Done, Completed, Overdo. I loved having my open tasks sorted by due date earliest to last. This gave me a great overview of what upcoming tasks I have. That now is lost. Or at least I cannot find how to do that. When I click the sort button and click Due Date it sorts by furthest due date. I’ve got over 1500 tasks through 2025 and I am shown 2025 first! I have to scroll all the way down to see my earliest tasks! And then when I open the month. they are not sorted by due date! I hate to say this, but this is not helpful for me and so now I am having to go back to using Reminders for my tasks. When I click on my Task List I want to be able to see all my tasks by most recent due date. I also want to be able to see my overdo tasks. This was possible in version 7 but is gone in version 8. Please. PLEASE. Bring this back.

      Paul,

      These are great points. Our 8.1 update, targeted for April, is focussed on tasks, calendar, schedules and related things. We’ll make it better to accomplish what you’ve mentioned. Would you be open to a phone call with us to go over some of these things, or other related things you may want to cover? If so, please reach out to us at support@lightarrow.com and we’ll set up a call.

      Thanks for caring and allowing us to be and do better.

    Thanks for responding to my two previous questions. I am just blown away by how quickly you respond to questions. Your responsiveness and support must be the best in the industry. I’d also like to concur with those who have said what an awesome app and upgrade this is. Especially love the ability to see my emails and Facebook items in the pro inbox, and to bring them into LifeTopix as tasks, appointments, etc.
