[Feature Request] Task option for "Move to Inbox" and "Snooze" (for tasks in the Inbox), like Gmail

Hey, team!

With Gmail, I love to snooze individual emails until my inbox only contains the tasks I must address today. So, naturally, some emails I snooze until the next day, week, or month based on their urgency and when I want to be reminded.

I would love similar functionality with Height.

  • I experimented using “status” values like “Today”, “This Week”, and “Next Week”, but it did not suffice because the “status” cannot automatically update themselves when their time comes.
  • This might be possible with due/start dates, but I want to avoid modifying the task for the entire workspace (only me) because the snooze/target dates are not actual deadlines but when I want to be reminded about the task.

I think a snooze feature would be a game-changer for tasker management. It works great with email and probably even better with to-dos. It’s my #1 feature request.

Implementation: Add a “Move to Inbox” option for all tasks. Then, users can individually snooze tasks in their inbox. This way, the “snoozes” are user-specific and do not impact the tasks for the whole workspace. The Inbox then becomes the main view from which I work.

  • I cannot rely on “Assigned to me” because I have nearly 100 tasks there, most of which are backlogged.

Thoughts?

Thanks for the detailed context. Definitely something we’ll consider supporting in the future!

Our team would love this too. Very common to have tasks that I’m interested in, not necessarily mine, and I want to snooze the notifications and get it back in my inbox in a few days.

Gotcha, Alex! Thanks for sharing. We’re working on possible improvements :slight_smile:

:pray: Please can we get something to help here.

My inbox is huge, and a massive number of the tasks can’t be easily removed because there aren’t other good ways to find them again. A snooze function would make our lives so much easier.

Noted, Alex. I’ll see if we can prioritize implementing this feature :pray:

I’ll honestly jump into your team and help out for up to 2 days if it’s of any use :wink:

Get me coding, domain modelling, acting as PM, whatever. Or point to a repo so I can hack on a fork of the app and add it.
