Organization and Progress
I think it would be great to be able to organize quests according to importance and also to have the ability to have a new quest open up that is linked to a previous quest.
We’re working on the ability to click and drag quests around so you can change the order.
Currently, if you have a powerpack, when you complete certain quests you’ll unlock others. Is that similar to what you were thinking?
I too am starting to hit that point were there's a long line of quest and power ups, so some organization features would really help. I'd like to have some folder features where I can place certain power-ups that relate to certain activities I do and maybe even link that folder or certain power-ups to a quest or bad guy where those power-ups go into play.
It's fun creating new things to do but it's starting to clog into a big mess where I end up spending some time looking for which power-up I activate, or plan to activate, instead of actually powering up. I'm really looking forward to some organization features to clear the piling mess.
Be careful with this! Creating lists, and then more lists can be a very convenient way to postpone actually doing what is on the lists. The current setup, where the next quest is only opened when the previous one is completed is a nice way to ensure the previous one gets done.
The way Jane suggests is great, since it keeps that constraint on.
I would suggest some other limits as well, maybe number of quests, max nesting and so on, to make sure we don't spend our lives planning them...
I too am a bit disoriented by the length of quests and the random arrangement of power-ups and bad-guys. I would LOVE the option of nesting quests inside one another, because realistically I plan out complicated things into small steps, but many steps have pre-requisites.
In the mean time I have added pictures to each quest and use the same few pictures in order to categorize the quests so that I know they are related, but, it's still disorienting.

I agree with this, and whilst it is great that the powerpacks unlock new quests when one is completed, it would be nice to be able to set some of these up for your own quests - e.g. If I manage to complete my 'do the washing up' quest then it opens the 'wipe down the sides' and 'mop the floor' quests? You could set these as you set up new quests or as you went on, and create yourself ever expanding trees of small subtasks. This would be a great feature as I really feel great when I manage to unlock a new quest and would like to do this with some of the tasks I have created myself
