the tree structure is so much clear to navigate between tags, smart queues and tags

Soon GQueues will be getting a new layout, and you have the opportunity to test it out early and offer feedback!  

When you login to GQueues you will see a notice at the top that let's you "Try it now!"  Just click this link to switch to the new layout and give it a shot.  
(If you don't see this option just logout of GQueues and log back in again).

If you decide you're not ready for the change you can always switch back.

The new layout was created with several goals in mind, all stemming from feedback you have offered on this forum over the last several months:

  • Make everything easier to read - even queues with dark colors
  • Increase the amount of space devoted to displaying tasks (maximize use of screen real estate)
  • Make it easier to see all your queues and smart queues in the left panel
  • Maximize the width available for the task description (have it adjust based on whether a task has a due date, reminder)
  • Update the look and feel to be more modern, clean
Also with the new layout I've added several new bits of functionality that have been requested by you:
  • The option to choose a "Compact" display setting to see tasks in a smaller font with white space minimized - details
  • The option to see task "Creation Dates" and sort by these as well - details
  • The option to Sort / Group by Tags - details
  • A shortcut key to view all available shortcuts (just type a question mark - ? )
  • Tasks that are overdue show their dates in red
  • When adding a tag /assignment using the drop down menu the first option is automatically selected as you type so you can just press enter

As always, your feedback is welcome and encouraged.  Love certain parts, don't like others? Let me know.  Also if you notice any bugs you can report those here as well.

Over the next week or so I will be putting the finishing touches on the new layout and then will roll it out to everyone.
