Feature Request: Agenda List View

Hi everyone,

I realize that Meistertask is a kanban project management, but I think it would benefit from having a list view of tasks, especially in the Agenda. The kanban view is great for organizing tasks and seeing where they are in the workflow, but once that's done, I know I would prefer to just be able to visualize the tasks that need to be done. Something similar to the Reports format would be a great start.

Curious about what you guys think.

    Is this not possible with the my task widget on the left of agenda? i can see a list of all tasks assigned to me in order of due date. then i have my agenda sections as days of the week and drag the tasks across to the different days so i know when i should tackle them.

    did you mean some other sort of list view?

    Thanks for your response!

    I have a similar setup. My issue is that once I've organized my tasks in the Agenda, I only need to focus on the tasks from one column (the current day of the week in your example) which means that most of the time, 4/5 of my screen is not relevant to the work I have to do. With a list view, my relevant tasks would be at the top, I could see more of them, and future tasks would be mostly off screen.

    I know this might not work for everyone's workflow, but for me, the point of being productive is being able to focus on the tasks at hand, without having a full screen of tasks that don't need to be tackled yet.

    Asana's list view is a good example of what I envision, except that it doesn't give you the option to order tasks as well as the Agenda does.

    Hey @eliasz and welcome to the Community!

    You've made a good point here on the use of space. I thought you might be interested in this discussion about MeisterTask design. @Rooster McNugget and @Jörg Koper discuss similar issues with the Dashboard, i.e. that the space isn't utilized very well and could be better.

    Thanks for the extra info + example!

    Hi everybody,

    The possibility to see all the tasks or those filtered and grouped along selected criteria is a must-have for a web-based/cloud-based task management solution in my view. So, I would appreciate it if I could switch between Kanban and list views.

    I understand bulk importing of tasks, but that requires building a list externally. However, a native list view would also allow for rapid task creation. One of Asana's (take your pick really - Asana, Wrike, ClickUp, Monday etc) features is rapid creation of tasks - think outlining or brainstorming. Any chance that's on the roadmap?

    Hi @geoffb,

    You might find this thread useful, especially @Andrew Lapidus' comment on bulk task creation (although his top tip relies on having an existing list).
