When I’m outlining/planning a project and I set a general end date, I want to see how much time is still left even if remaining time is more than 6 days (as is currently). And for me it’s often the case.
Add an ability to always see how much time is remaining. There are several option how to do it, I’ll list couple of my most preferred ones.
- Since it’s actually hard to track projects running for more than a single month with only one date counter - just increase maximum cap in current implementation of “time remaining” from 6 to 30 days. It should cover most of the cases.
- Add new simple syntax like “!!” that will allow to use “time remaining” counters only when needed, so user will actually have more flexibility when and where to use it. Remove any cap for max values for such syntax. As an example with “!(2018-07-08 22:00)” you see “Sun, July 8th, 2018, 22:00”. And with new syntax “!!(2018-07-08 22:00)” you will see “In 27 days, 22:00” or even “In 27days, July 8th, 2018, 22:00”.
- Add new configuration that will allow the user to define the maximum cap with options like (don’t show, 6 days, 30 days etc).
