A bug fix and some small improvements – RevuDo 0.4.8.1

leave a comment »

I had hoped that this would be version 0.5, with the ability to edit tasks, but the details of that have been taking longer than I expected, so it was time to release a bug fix and some small feature requests.

Erica pointed out that RevuDo would crash when using a team account on Nozbe.  Tomasz Kapelak, the CTO at Nozbe, very helpfully gave me some team accounts on their test server to simulate working as a team and the problem was very quickly revealed.  This is now working correctly.

Charles commented that printing his lists enabled him to do a review away from the computer. I understand well how getting away from the computer can open up new perspectives.  In order to make this easier, Charles suggested a few improvements. And so, the following new features have been added:

  • The printed tasks now include their due date.
  • Since printing task comments can use up a lot of paper, there is a new option to print only the last comment.  I am considering taking this further to limit how much of that comment is printed.  If you would like that option added, let me know your thoughts on what the cutoff should be.  Charles suggested an option to remove them entirely.  That will be in the next release.
  • The total estimated time for the printed tasks is now shown at the top of the printout, below the header.  I plan to add the time required for each task, but a sheet of paper is only so wide, and I have to give some thought to printing more than one line per task.

Charles also requested a way to print just the tasks completed in a certain date range.  I will probably add a shortcut for this, but it can be done now.  Select All Tasks, and then select Show Done.  Click the Completed column to sort on the date completed.  Highlight the range you want to print, and click print, selecting the option to print only selected tasks.

Many thanks to both Erica and Charles for the comments. This is why I am developing RevuDo in public. Please keep those comments coming!

RevuDo 0.4.8.1 can be downloaded on the RevuDo page.
