Hey, Mark, did you see this from a recent thread? Note Michelle's reply at the bottom "This is planned."

This is planned :-)
 
ah, brilliant
 
Another option would be putting a badge on the dock icon with the number of items in the inbox, as in Mail.app.

Not saying I'd prefer it, but just putting the idea out there...

I like that as well.

Or a feature for showing the amount of things due today/now/etc.

Could be a preference:

Show: X in Dock (Inbox count, items due today/this week/etc)

That way when you are in "Focus" mode you can see what is the universe size.

This would be a great start to the stats that I have been bugging them about.

This thread has gone rather dormant, but I hope there's still some possibility of adding this feature. Now that the flagged filter is broken out, I'd find it very useful to know how many flagged actions I have at a glance, as this status bar would enable.

What if the inbox was severed from both Project and Context, and was given an icon up in the toolbar with Project and Context? Could you put the number of inbox items on that icon without it being disruptive?

That would be worse. If the number is in the toolbar, then it never goes away. Currently in context view I don't see anything having to do with the inbox. That's how it should be when I'm in "doing" modeóno distractions.

I can live with counts in project view or an optional status bar at the bottom of the window.

But if it is a toolbar item then it is optional because you can customise the toolbar.

Only if it is a separate button. The current view buttons are a paired set.

As it turns out, I take my idea back, I hadn't finished reading the thread and I greatly prefer the idea of having the inbox icon look like a paper tray, and be empty or not empty accordingly.
