I didn’t find any post on this matter, is this feature avaliable already and I didn’t find it? I’ve been using Vikunja for just a couple of days and that’s totally possible.
For example, let’s assume I have some recurrent list of tasks, like grocery list, or weekly home tasks, that changes a little bit every time. Instead of rewriting the whole list every time, I do a copy in a namespace Templates, so I now have a sort of template list, encompassing all the recurrent tasks. When I need to create a new recurrent list, I copy the template list in the proper namespace and then I delete all the tasks, or groceries, unneeded for that particular week.
Deleting a task needs at least 3 clicks and a scroll down, would it be possible to add a delete icon at the right of the edit icon? The first time it could ask a second confirmation, but with the possibility to set a flag not to ask again to confirm.
In the future, a better solution could be to have an actual template list, where the user can select the exact tasks they need to create the recurrent list (instead of copying the whole list and the delete the unneeded tasks).
Currently not, the only way to delete a task is on the task detail view.
I don’t really like the idea of adding another icon to the task list as there are already three of them in that row. I think another one would be too much, especially since it wouldn’t be used that often (unless you’re handling it like in your use case). I think we could add one to the quick edit side-panel though, maybe next to the save button?
Totally understand that it’s not a high priority but I wanted to throw my support behind the quick delete button.
Along with me being new to the app, the introduction of Quick Add Magic means there’s a lot of tasks getting made with mistakes that I would like to be able to quickly delete. The only alternative I can see to a delete button is having a bulk-edit option where you can select as many tasks as you like and then edit them all from the detailed task view.
Edit: Just had another thought for a way to keep it clean. When you’re using the click+drag tool you could make a trash can appear temporarily at the top or bottom of the list? You could then drag the task into the bin.
