Re: Tasks Lists

Bit of an old thread, but I've just bought a Playbook. I can't believe that the tasks are sorted alphabetically to begin with. Who uses a tasl list like this?


The whole point of a to-do list is prioritisation.


If everyone did their to-do's in alpha order I reckon the earth would stop spinning.

Re: Tasks Lists

I'm seriously surprised that there are no native tasks being stored on the blackberry playbook. This seems like basic functionality for an enterprise device, IMO... 


This is the main reason that I bought the playbook - to plan and review my day using the calendar and tasks features. I use ms outlook on my laptop to create tasks and currently manage them using my blackberry 9780 and BHive Tasks (which is the best task manager out there, IMO).


If there are no native tasks on the playbook then is it possible for a developer to build a task app that can work with the bridge to display the tasks in a better user interface on the playbook allowing for sorting (due date, priorities, today, tomorrow, new few days etc...)?

Re: Tasks Lists

I'm on board as well. I was excited to be able to have my to-do list with me at all times... but really? Sorted alphabetically and no way to sort just to see uncompleted items?? This really should be fixed. I bought this strictly for work as an extension of my Blackberry. It should have AS MUCH or MORE functionality, not LESS.  Please fix this!


I really do love this tablet, but it is a little silly that this particular work related item was overlooked.
