Allow editing of todo status from the main view page

Allow editing of todo status from the main view page

Short, concise description of the idea
When someone simply wants to change the % complete part of a todo list entry, it would be much faster/cooler to be able to change the value from the main view page.

Full description of the idea
I realize the todo system is in beta and really not a priority, but I'm hoping this suggestion can be put on the back burner for Something To Do At A Later Date When Someone's Bored.

An ordered list of benefits

  • It seems to me that the most-changed field in a todo list entry would be the percent complete value..so it's only logical to make the value editable without having to go to a different screen every time..
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • I can't think of any off the top of my head, but there always are drawbacks and I'm sure you guys will tell me what they are ^^
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • There could be a text field or a drop-down box that replaces the simple text that is there currently...if a drop-down box was used, it might be a good idea to let people choose percents only in multiples of 10. Which is accurate enough, don't you think? I mean, who goes into their todo list and says "Okay...I was 43.6% done with this, but now I'm 44.7% done." Nobody, right?
  • I'm rambling so I'll stop ^^
