Even I don't care about that and I am the biggest jailing fan ever :)

Another use case:

allan.laal added a comment to T4444: "NOT" filter for all applicable lines in a Query.

I have found myself wanting to apply one or all of the filters below to a Maniphest task search query:
NOT assigned to
NOT authored by
NOT subscribed by (to find if I should CC someone, applies to small projects, usually a part of a bigger query)
Title does NOT contain
Title contains (right now its searching in title and text, which gives too much false positives)

the "order by: date created" filter would satisfy the initial use case, however I kinda hijacked this task and Pivoted it to be more general

yeah, I've often canceled my changes in the Edit page only to make the same changes using the Comment Action thingie in the View page. Simply because I want to comment my changes and I want the comment to be in the same row block as the changes, not a separate row block.

just disabling Enter would be enough, Its hardcoded inside my brain that when I search for something I hit Enter to see it. I've lost large lists of carefully selected dependencies because of this nasty habit multiple times :(

For me I cannot solve this socially as the people in question change all the time as I take on new clients. Its more time-costly (for me) to teach the world, rather than make the workflow a bit byreocratic.

allan.laal added a comment to T4383: Maniphest setting: force readonly "Needs Triage" priority for new tasks.

I use the same trick when I (think I) need to buy something big. It goes into a list. I prioritize it only after some time has passed and if after a few weeks or months I still feel like its important, then I buy it as opposed to buying the damn thing the first moment I think I need it. Its the same with tasks.

I would still like All users to be able to edit/view the priorities of tasks, but I just want to move assigning priorities to a time after the task is created for the reasons I mentioned above. Its like a cool-down period.

allan.laal added a comment to T2334: Implement Google Calendar v3 API into Calendar.

Adding Google Calendar support would make the Calendar immediately useful to a lot of people. Right now the Calendar is just isolated and thus largely unusuable. Eventually it would be great to add task deadlines and milestones to the Calendars (if/when these features are added).

allan.laal added a comment to T4383: Maniphest setting: force readonly "Needs Triage" priority for new tasks.

Forcing a Triage also enables people to add dependencies and subtasks, otherwise they might forget that, because one can't add any dependencies while creating a task.
