Hi together,

it's a great app. I have another feature idea if it is not request yet.

It would be great to have a reminder for posts.

Best regards
Gino

Hi @GinoHereIam , thanks for your suggestion!
Could you be more specific about Reminder?

Just my two cents, as usual, but I do not think Boostnote should try to be a taskmanager or anything of that sort. It should focus on being a good note taking application.

@huettenhain a reminder (like Google Keep cough) keep notes in foreground. Notes are actually reminders. Therefore it would be a pretty good feature to set up time/dates to remind about this note. Don't you think so? Also, markdown already brings the possibility for tasks, why not to use it in combination with a reminder. There a lot of people like me who always forget their head. ;)

@kazup01 Just to set time/date which remind me about this note. Like with a notification/popup or something like that.

I absolutely agree that this is a feature that some people might want. I am quite simply not one of them, and my notes are really never reminders. I feel that boostnote should focus on being a lean note taking application for coders, not a todo list, not a task manager, not a beamer presentation tool, not an online collaboration tool, not any of the other things that you could turn it into. Because: You can turn an application like boostnote into all kinds of things by piling feature on top of feature, and if you keep doing that, it will end up being a useless piece of bloat.

Instead of adding features, I would highly prioritize some very needed quality improvements, e.g. #176.

@huettenhain I think for most this is a good feature. Nothing to do with presentation, task manager, collaboration or anything else bloating. Just a little reminder help, if the user has wish for it. There will be always a percent of users who don't like such feature. But they also don't have to use it.

@kazup01 I think this feature is worthy for usability.

I like the idea of this, but I don't think it squares with the intent of the application.

That said, for things like this where some users may be interested but others are not, have you ever considered adding support for plugins or extensions to Boostnote?

@incredibleweirdo Plugins might be better than fixed features. That's a good idea. But how to distribute plugins?

I'de like to see this feature too.
I did not count the number of time where I put reminders in Evernote, that became real notes later.
My projects start with one idea with one line I drop in a reminder and grow later in something pleasant :)
