NEW: Fresh Look Cameron (GQueues) 5/11/12 2:36 PM
GQueues has a new look!

Hopefully you'll find it clean and refreshing.  The changes are based on your feedback over the past several months and your suggestions while the new look was in beta the past two weeks. 

The goals of the re-design were:
  • 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 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
  • Colored tags on tasks
  • 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
Thanks to everyone who participated in the beta and offered ideas.  If you have additional feedback feel free to post it below.

I love it Cameron.  The red for late thing is nice.   Visually, I don't know why, but I like it more.  Good job!

My little growing CPA firm in Texas is COMPLETELY dependent on the GQs for our task management.  I hope you are making a ton of money and are in business a long time.  We don't don't even call tasks, "tasks" anymore.  They are "GQs".

My only suggestion for the future would be to somehow have a firm wide GQs that could be shared (in a way that shows all the notes, tags, and such-when I "assign" now, they don't see all the info) and have a view and/or manage type thing like google docs.  I'm getting less willing to have someone log into my email so they can see all the GQ information.  Or, if need to share, let all the GQ information show to the person to whom you have shared.  I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong when I share and they can't see all I can see with my GQs.

Anyway, love it.  Keep it up!

Colored Tags! 
Thanks So Much Cameron!
Re: NEW: Fresh Look Dan 5/12/12 2:54 AM
Looks good to me too.

I had installed the Stylish extension that someone posted, and the new look breaks it.  But disabling Stylish plugin sorted things out.

Keep up the good work ... by the way, where do I vote to get searching in tasks?!  Still waiting for that feature.

Cheers
Dan

The new layout's a little fubar on my laptop running Linux and using Firefox with 1366x768 resolution. The same setup on my desktop, except 1024x768 resolution, seems to be fine. Screenshot attached.

Hi Cameron,
Looks great but I wanted to give you just one suggestion related to *Next Actions* because I really would love to see that improvement happeing in GQueues. I saw GQueues supports Next Actions but right now it is not very flexible, meaning you cannot drag-and-drop and you are force to add strcitly the first or first three tasks of a list. I think Next Actions are really at the core of GTD. If you look at how Nozbe (another app you may know) manages Next Actions you can see how they do a great job, almost the whole app is built around Next Actions which gives you focus. That said, again GQueues is really great, etc, I just hope you can make the Next Actions improvement, and also evolve more the mobile app (add tags at least). I think if you make those change GQueues will be a lot much better.
Sincerely,
Paul

Hello,

I received an email about this new look. The email says:

Login now to try it out yourself or check out the new video below for a quick glimpse:

The email says that the URL for this video is:

http://www.gqueues.com/?utm_source=newsletter1&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=newLayout#gqTourVideo

That URL redirects to:

http://www.gqueues.com/main#gqTourVideo

However, there is no video at that URL.

Question re category colors and feature request CyberCrone 5/15/12 3:25 PM
I've been trying to find out if there is a way to change color of category folders, but so far haven't seen a way, and search of forum doesn't turn up anything.  Seems odd that I can't do this and I wonder if I have missed something?  (It wouldn't be the first time.)

I'm a new user, only two days, but already know GQueues is the app I've been looking for for months.  Hooray on you!  Does many of things I need in a web-based PIM/task manager/whatever-you-want-to-call-it, and when you add multiple notes for each task and the ability to attach files, those will be enormously valuable to me and satisfaction will be approaching ~90%. The single remaining wish is for inserting graphics in notes; not able to do that currently?  Is this on your list?

Re: Question re category colors and feature request Cameron (GQueues) 5/16/12 7:51 AM
Hi Toni - 

Your are correct, right now there is no way to change the color of category folders.  

There is a "secret" way to have images in the notes.  If you paste in a link to an image, GQueues will automatically display a thumbnail of the image.  

Inline image 2

Inline image 1


When I build out the attachments feature you will then be able to upload images and have them displayed in notes.

Hope this helps,
Cameron

until installed in GQueues, you can search by clicking 'command+F' and a search box appears at page top and what you enter in it is highlighted in your list :)
Re: NEW: Fresh Look Ben Edmonds 5/18/12 5:42 AM
Giant leap of improvement in the UI.  Keeping in line with other core Google products is a key point for me. Partially on aesthetics grounds but I strongly believe the shared UI improves ease & productivity.  Especially when new users come to Google or GQs.

I'm seeing some rendering issues periodically on my Chromebook (Samsung, stable build).  
~ It's cutting off the task list (though it does respond correctly with a scrollbar) - solution: browser refresh. 
~ The full GQs copyright footer isn't seen - solution: use Sroll-to-the-top Chrome extension and scroll to the bottom.

Not big issues of course. Thanks.

Re: NEW: Fresh Look eberl...@berlingcreativeservices.com 5/19/12 4:29 AM
I would love to upgrade and pay for the Premium version but as it stands the Queue color choices are so horrendous that I cannot bring myself to pay and upgrade.

Do you have any plans in the very near future to change the color choices? A color picker would be nice but I would be fine with at least having the current colors appear more like their natural color. For instance, the red is too dark and ugly and the next level down is an ugly pink.  The other colors are the same way.  If the colors looked more natural I would upgrade and pay in a second. The new interface looks great but the color choices really take away from the new UI.

For me the colors are ok.
Re: NEW: Fresh Look con...@patanddonna.com 5/22/12 6:36 AM
Only problem I have is when I try o mark a task complete it takes about 5 clicks of the mouse. it wants to move the task around. Same with the queues. I click one to open it and it changes the order. Very frustrating.

Thanks for the feedback, Connie.  I'll adjust the code a bit so regular clicks are not interpreted as drags.  I'll get it out in the next update.  -Cameron

Any feedback or update on this? I've noticed the new layout is similarly mis-rendered on my office computer with a resolution of 1920x1080 (also using Firefox). I do find the new layout to be a significant improvement over the old one; it would be nice if the rendering problems could be resolved.

Thanks for a great product!
Re: NEW: Fresh Look Cameron (GQueues) 5/23/12 1:46 PM
Hi Karl - 

It looks like your flavor of Linux doesn't have the Arial font installed, so it's displaying the page with a generic sans-serif font which is wider than Arial, and thus the text is not fitting in all the buttons correctly.  I've made some adjustments to the code to account for this situation.  It will go out in the next update.

-Cameron

Re: NEW: Fresh Look Karl 5/23/12 2:10 PM
Yup, that did it. Installing the Liberation fonts (which are metric-compatible with Microsoft fonts) fixed it.

Thanks!
Re: NEW: Fresh Look Cameron (GQueues) 5/30/12 6:53 PM
This bug has been fixed, so things should look correct even if you only have the generic sans-serif font on a Linux system.  Thanks again for pointing it out, Karl! -Cameron

Re: NEW: Fresh Look Martin Chapman 10/31/12 6:26 AM
Cameron,
The new Compact View is an improvement but (in my opinion) still takes up too much screen space for tasks with Notes and Tags which end up having three lines for each task.
Could you move the tags up to the first line of the task, in front of the task details, leaving the notes beneath on the second line.
Also, the gap between each line seems to be unnecessarily wide meaning wasted space between the lines.
I love the concept of GQueues, the way it integrates with Google Mail is just perfect but feel irritated by the wasted space between the lines when viewing task queues.

Its great to have the option for Comfortable or Compact View and due to this (in my opinion) you should really go for it and remove all additional wasted space on the Compact View.
This would satisfy those of us who want to see as many tasks as possible on the screen and are not really bothered about the "look" of the page.
For those who are more in tune with the aesthetics of the display and are not desperate to see as many tasks as possible on the screen there is the Comfortable view.
For those who want both, well they have to make a choice.

Thanks - Martin.

Hi Cameron:

As you know, I love GQueues. I have a suggestion that I'd like to make. Can we have an even more compact display with each task taking only one line (perhaps but the date/time after the task, instead of above it).

One thing I would trade off (aesthetically) is a brighter yellow for the Note icon so that when I keep Notes hidden the icon is more noticeable so I see which ones have notes.
