A new version of Checkvist Web Clipper - now with the target selection, and a new design

Hello,

We’ve just released a new version of the Checkvist bookmarklet for Chrome and Firefox.
Now you can not just add tags, due dates, and sub-tasks, but also select a specific location in the target list.

Start typing to filter the list on the fly. Here’s a small demo -

If you like it – please leave a review :slight_smile:
And if you have more ideas on how to improve it, please share here - as we plan to work more in this area :nerd_face:

Very useful! Thanks.

I’m starting to evaluate it. It DOES look good.

What is the expected use case for “Use new line to separate list items”? I think the default should be that additional items are sub-items.

Right now I’m a fairly heavy Raindrop.io user. Maybe in time this functionality can make that obsolete.

Cheers,

Jim

Thanks :slight_smile: We also plan to add tags completion to the bookmarklet as well, hopefully in February.

Actually, this is the default task separation mode when adding items from the mobile app, where you may want to add several multi-line items at once.

Best,

Could you please restore the notes field, it only show up if you have something highlighted now which is a pain as I often need to provide context to the link I’m adding. Perhaps it could be an option, or a link/button to show the notes field if nothing was highlighted in the page?

Yesss, that’s definitely needs fixing. We’ve overlooked this use case somehow :frowning_face:
Will provide a solution with the next version, promise.

Hello,

Here comes a new version of the web clipper! We’ve added

  • an option to always keep the Notes field open
  • tag, due date, and assignee auto completion
  • a fix for the ‘block third party cookies’ option in Chrome.

Hope it works better for you now :slight_smile:

Really liking the new web clipper. Staying open while scrolling helps tremendously when adding multiple bits of information from a long web page. One request: could you please add a small button, say in the space between Note and #tags, to swap the text in the title and notes fields? I often collect quotes and statistics and like having the title/URL as a reference in the notes instead vice-versa. Thanks!

Functional, uncluttered, and fast; like everything else in Checkvist. You’re really awesome, guys!

It would be great if we could use Home/End in the Add to dropdown menu.

And maybe even greater if there was an only dropdown menu and we could navigate it with arrow keys to expand/contract subtress.

That’s an interesting idea, thanks! The use case can be quite common.
I ctrl-x and ctrl-v quite often myself :slight_smile:
“Note swap” could be contextual and unobtrusive, smth like a screen below.
What do you think?

Thank you! We are trying hard to keep up :nerd_face:

The next Web Clipper version is going to have the ‘Add to the bottom’ option. That’s somehow in the course of what you are suggesting.

Not sure about the only dropdown, though. Some lists are huge, loading and navigating them in the browser extension can be a painful task. But anyway, thanks for suggesting this. Maybe @maxkir will find a way to implement it one day :wink:

Hello, hope everyone is safe and functioning :mask:

We’ve just released the WebClipper v.2.3, with a couple of suggested features

  • Swap title and note texts
  • Add a clipping to the bottom of the list
  • Remember the previously selected destination - both the list and the branch

Working feels so good these days.
As if one still can plan and control something.

Onwards!
