Calendar view for selecting due date

malmjako says:
I would like to have a calendar view for selecting due date for a task, instead of - or as an alternative to the current year/month/day up/down button interface.

We've now improved this with the new Remember The Milk, with a new way to choose due dates and times in the app. We hope you like it! :)

Agree, and I also suggest being able to add the task to the calendar itself.

+1 this would be the most favoured option

Alternative would be something like the scrolling "fruit machine" date app in GCal, although the inclusion of the actual day (not just the date) would be better

+1 Can't believe this basic functionality doesn't already exist. Have never seen an tasks/action program without it!

I know...I'm not understanding how this works without a calendar to choose due date.

Dito. You know the main website could use a calendar date picker too. Doesn't jquery have one that's ready to go?

How about the ability to view tasks on a calendar. Or sync tasks to the native Android calendar. When someone calls me and asks if I'm available at 10:00 am two weeks from Friday it's impossible to find out. This seems pretty basic to me.

jrichards,
See our instructions for using iCalendar with Google Calendar. That should do what you want.

The date and time pickers can be hard to use if you need to change an hour or day by more than a couple numbers.

+1 Please add it soon. I hate 'guessing' a date just to see what day it lands on and then having to edit it. A simple calendar to choose from is really needed.

I was wondering how to get calendar view for entering due dates, too. I know I've had it pop-up sometime. Wondering what the secret is?

A small calendar view/jselection a la every travel search engine seems like a no-brainer here, what's the deal?

If the program had a calendar to chose a date I would definetly upgrade to a pro user. It would make chosing a date for a due date much easier and it just makes sense. Please update this.

I manage my todo list primarily by due date. Which means I frequently find myself postponing stuff if I don't get to it. But I don't usually postpone just by a day. For example, if it's a task like "do some work on the house", I'll postpone that to next week. The current Android app date interface is so cumbersome, slow, and doesn't provide relevant info (like the day of the week), that I honestly find it verging on unusable.

I've been using RTM for years, recently became a pro subscriber, but this part of the Android app especially is driving me to consider Any.Do. You guys seriously need to put some love into your UIs!
