This is a stellar update here! Lots of good additions. :slight_smile:


Amazing update! Thanks!


Exciting new features! Can't wait to try it all. Thank you @GoodTask! :100:


Wow! This update is incredible! If someone were on the fence about purchasing GoodTask, this update would surely push them over the edge! I especially love the addition of groups and spaces between lists. But the focus mode and reports features were a wonderful surprise! I feel like a kid on Christmas morning! Thanks for all you do. You are amazing ... from patiently answering all of our support questions to fixing bugs to coding exciting new features, I don't know how you get it all done. Thank you, GoodTask!


After installing this update on my Mac list, day, week, and month views show up empty, even if all lists is selected in list panel. The only way to restore those views is to look at another list (not all lists) in list view and then re-select all lists; after that the views are restored.

Hi @pdmartin44, you may update the app to v5.0.2 on macOS. It'll work well. Thanks!

Thanks that did the trick.
