I'm having a hard time finding a task-list that matches all of these requirements, would anyone know of more tools than those listed?
1. Web-app (or at least Windows)
2. Android app with widget support. In the widget I can choose what tasks to display by filtering.
3. Tasks can have start dates (i.e. task is hidden until a certain date).
4. Possible to add tasks via email
5. Made for task management and todo-lists. I.e. I'm not looking for collaboration functionality or workarounds in complex systems.
5. (preferably) Tasks can repeat on start date, also without due date (i.e. repeat task can start no sooner than 7 days after I completed it)-
The apps I found that support these requirements are:
Does anyone have any other suggestions for this (please don't suggest for example Todoist and Ticktick as neither supports start dates)?
I use Trello as my to-do list - as my requirements are very similar to yours. It covers all your points - possibly except being able to 'filter' views in a widget. I use Widget for Trello, and have several widgets displaying different lists - but you can also change boards and lists directly from the widget. I can't say if that would satisfy your requirement regarding filtering views.
If it doesn't seem straight-forward how to achieve all of your above points in Trello, I'd be happy to assist as best I can.
Have you considered Asana? I think you can add custom fields such as start date for something, and it's the most likely to be closest to a "to do" app you're likely most familiar with, and with the least aggressive learning curve.
OmniFocus and such are great, but it has a pretty steep learning curve; if you're willing to invest, that's great, but it's difficult to scale it across more than just yourself.
I've got what may be the worst suggestion, one that will only work if you have at least some access to a Mac or iOS device: OmniFocus. OmniFocus has task start dates, detailed repeating task settings, and an option to build task lists that only show you the next task in a list once the prior task is complete. And it has Mail Drop to email tasks to OmniFocus.
What it doesn't have is a Windows app, though OmniFocus for the Web would let you use most of its features from your browser. You would just need to set up OmniFocus initially on a Mac or iOS device; that may be the catch here that keeps it from working. And in the same vein, there's not an OmniFocus Android App, though the 3rd party app Focus GTD 3 again supports most OmniFocus features on Android and has Android Widget support.
Another app I have less experience with but that does support start dates is ClickUp—though from a bit of searching it looks like their Android widget support is in progress but not released yet.
Notion still has a free version and once you do the upfront customization it's extremely flexible. I use it for personal stuff in my free account and I use a separate paid account for my Marketing team.
The only caveat is I'm not positive you can email tasks to it. I'll have to look a that. All the date stuff you mentioned is built in.
