And since this post also talks about notifications, the most important thing in making this software useful is actually looking at it.  That is, building the consistency of using it.  It's no use having a consistency item for using consistency if you don't first build consistency to open it regularly.  So having notifications seems like a critical component of getting people to build the consistency to remember to open it at a frequency they want.  Not a reminder for each item in it, but rather just a notification that says "Hey, did you check Consistency today?".  That would help do the most important thing it can't do right now, remind you to use it.  Ironic but I think a propos Smiley

Of course, I could just set a daily calendar item to check it.  But if it took care of that, it would be nice Smiley

I see is old but definitely some kind of sync with the desktop would be almost a must.  General management larger view on the phone and on-the-go one off updates on the phone.  I'm sure the amount of data is minuscule to make cloud service costs free or negligeable (10GB per month, thoughts on volume)?

Agreed.  This is an excellent product and I want to share it with my Android using friends that I know will benefit from it! Smiley

Hi, don't know if this forum is still active or supported but I will try....

I love! Sciral Consistency and use it often.  I don't know what happened, but I am now unable to open some of my most commonly used files - maybe something happened when I shut down last time?  When I try to open one of these files, I get an error message:

Error loading document

In the window header it says, "This file does not appear to be a valid Consistency document!"

I am able to open some other, less used files - that were not open last time I shut down.

I am just sick.  Is there any way to recover this data, at least to copy it to another file?  Or rescue/repair these files?

Any help appreciated!

Thanks for your suggestion. We will consider whether it fits with our concept of the app.

Hello, I think in the new update there should be a way to indicate that a task has been done more than once..Tasks should be able to be collapsing menu's, where you click an arrow and more details about that task expand. I hear the continuos response to this type of request as being "Make multiple task's to indicate the occasions of a particular task, e.g. Running, Second Run, Third Run...or something like Walking the Dog, Walking the Dog in the afternoon, etc..This is moderately useful however it just adds to the clutter of the application. If there were a way to add multiple instances or types we would not have to add additional tasks' alongside the original task.

Thanks for listening.

Just another vote for an android app.
Got a new Galaxy S3 and m thinking Sciral would be such a natural fit.

Thanks guys!

I agree with all of these ideas, but came here specifically request the first: notification integration for the iPhone. I am baffled why this doesn't exist. What reason is there to have ported the software to the iPhone if it doesn't actively remind you when tasks are ready to be acted. The other alternative is to check the app daily, which is less effective and likely to be forgotten.

iPhone/DesktopSyncing via .consis files:
As these files are compartively small in size, I feel that email import/exports would be a good balance between the current deprecation of wifi sync (perhaps due to too many individual network compliance issues) vs a plugging in the iPhone for file sharing.  This would double as a cloud-independent personal backup system and with Sciral program itself not being terribly large, I would venture to say a USB version would work really well also and treble the opportunities for use.  For cross platform consider Java versions And how you roll almost 4 suggestions in one folks Smiley

Alert Reminders:
Although this is venturing into daily planner category it could still be a useful tool to have for the iPhone (local alerts) and desktop alerts. You could also enhance by email alerts as well.  These alerts could be as simple as a specific alert set to go off for a specific task on a specific date or more global options like remind me whenever any task or task x,y,&z turn yellow, are 2 days before yellow, are two days in the red..etc!

Additionally, for the iPhone, such a global 'fuzzy' alarm which monitors tasks going into certain colors to alert you would be a perfect pairing to complement the actual strength of the program itself as something that manages tasks intelligently by also setting alerts intelligently.  As a bonus for the end user, this means not having to go into each respective task and choose an alert. I can set any task for any dates and reliably count my global alert to ring it in when it approaches/hits a certain color block

Categories, or Nested Documents:
Instead of the current style of having separate windows for separate documents, a nesting hierarchical capability (as mentioned in sticky) would be very useful whether it is branches leading to separate documents altogether or nested categories within a document.

Horizontal Scrolling for Desktop:
This is kind of just laziness but would be very useful for those of us that have mice with wheels as many do come with it and if an option was given in the desktop to allow mouse wheel to control horizontal scrolling it would make navigating long timelines very easy.

This is just for following up on performances but it would be nice to have listed metrics or graphical statistical displays of tasks being performed, and on which color.  For eg. a simple pie chart for yellow/red/blue/green to show where most of my tasks are being completed (as if I don't already know!).
This could of course be enhanced into projecting risk so if there is a task that over a certain number of days has been continually hitting red every now and then, it could deem the position of most priority proactively vs current retroactive view by sorting order.

Overall ramp up on graphics/design would be nice as the program is simple and efficient but is no beauty pageant contender in desktop/iPhone apps Smiley

I look forward to constructive feedback from all, thanks.

Both of those items are on our "eventually" list, but we're not announcing anything at this time.
