So a while ago I wrote about some exciting additions to task management in Windows Phone Mango, and I thought I’d touch on what I still think is missing.
OneNote for Windows Phone is pretty good and I use it all the time, I especially like the fact that To Do tags can be shown in notes.
But unfortunately other types of tags that you can add in OneNote for the PC still don’t turn up. They do turn up on the web client though. The same happens with tables and ink and other formatting.
Also you still can’t pin a section to the home screen, but you can pin a notebook or a shortcut to creating a new note.
Tasks in Windows Phone Mango are great, and even support different exchange accounts with highlight colours that match the calendar…
But tasks are hidden away inside the Calendar app. I’d much prefer to be able to pin the tasks directly to the home screen, with a count of tasks due. I’d also like to see a way of pinning ‘new task’ much like you can pin a ‘new note’ in OneNote – unfortunately this hasn’t been implemented in the current release of Windows Phone.
What else is missing
On the topic of being unable to pin things – here’s a selection of things that I’d like to see pinnable in future versions:
- Wireless Settings (on and off)
- Flightmode Settings (on and off)
- Blueooth Settings (on and off)
- Task List
- Individual Tasks
- New Outlook Task
- A OneNote Notebook Section
- Individual Pictures (you can pin an album though)
- Individual Calendars
While this is not a list of everything anyone could possibly want to pin (I’m sure there are lots) these are just the things I’d like to be able to pin today.
