It would be great to have a way to set deadlines on tasks.

I think if you could specify a specific deadline for a task to be met it would be much easier to prioritize tasks. Maybe you could even work in a graphical display of tasks according to when they're due. Almost every task has a deadline, so this seems like a critical element.

Hi there John,

Unfortunately, this is something we most likely won't add to No Kahuna. We are trying to keep No Kahuna as simple as possible which means we must be quite discerning in deciding which features get added to the site.
Thank you so much for your suggestion though. If you have any other ideas, we would love to hear from you.

I should also mention that some folks use categories to accomplish similar goals. On one project I'm working on, we have the following categories:

* This week
* Must Have Now
* Must Have Someday
* Nice to Have
* Someday Maybe

Minimalistic and not bloated software is a good thing, and No Kahuna is doing a wonderful job in this regard, but almost any task on a (client) project has time costraints.
It would be wonderfull if No Kahuna allowed me to see at a glance what i need to do today and in the next few days.

We want No Kahuna to help us stay organized and have more free time.

Thank you for your hard work!

I'd really like it if it was possible to add a deadline to either a whole project or to each task individually. (I'd like it more, and find it more useful, to add a deadline to a whole project)

Yeah a deadline for a whole project and task (adding a little calendar?) could make No Kahuna the best web based project management BY FAR! Crossing my fingers ;)

I wonder if the newly added feature of the ability to tag tasks might help?

Well... it's intended to be a swiss army knife. I suspect folks are already using tags in ways we didn't anticipate.

You can only have one category for a task at a given time, but you could have any number of tags. To use tags for deadlines, I'm thinking it would depend on how the deadlines for your project work. If you use releases, you could use tags for things like "Release 1.02", "Release 1.03", etc. And you'd know when Release 1.03 is scheduled to ship.
