Email to external non-users from within Redbooth

GreenDino-Tim 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Conversations • updated by Mario Hennenberger 2 years ago 3

In an effort to "Kill E-mail" through Redbooth, I'd like to be able to email external non-users from within a task. More specifically, we manage hundreds of tasks that hinge on external users, none of whom use or need to use Redbooth the way we do. I need to track the emails sent to these users in order for me to close out the task. Currently, I send an email, copy the email, then paste the email to the comment box within Redbooth. This way, over the life of a project, I can see the entire task related thread of conversation (some of our tasks last a more than a year). Wouldn't it be great if Redbooth could link to your gmail to allow you to send a new email from within a task to an external user?

Dependency date push when final launch date changed

Alexander Kaplan 1 year ago in Feature Requests / Timeline • updated by David Galiel 8 months ago 6

When we create a Gant Chart for a product launch and then make dependencies with tasks, we wanted the time line to shift when an end date changes. For instance, creative will take longer to provide materials, launch date moves to later OR launch date comes earlier, then all tasks need to begin earlier in order to meet that launch

Task on HOLD

Additional task scheduling options would be helpful, such as placing a task we don't want to forget about on HOLD.

Task dependencies

Anonymous 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Irwin Kwan 1 year ago 9

Sometimes you have a task that requires another one to be completed before it can start. It would be great to be able to see those dependencies in Redbooth.

Hi,


We're delighted to let you know that we have added start dates to our tasks. You can find out more about it here: Announcing Timeline view with Gantt charts

Add the ability to color code or add keywords to tasks - defined once for all workspaces

cjordan 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Tags • updated by Milli Steele 4 months ago 3

It would be extremely helpful to be able to color code or add keywords to tasks. This could be used to tie a task to a customer, department, stage, etc. We like the Redbooth interface very much but it's one of the few task management tools I've seen not to support color coding and/or keywording of tasks.

Private option for Task List

George Chorianopoulos 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Task Lists • updated by Maja Foster 1 year ago 6

Please add a "Private" option for Task Lists and Task List Templates as some information in each Workspace may be sensitive to other members/external/clients

Task start date

natalie.berkey 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Dashboard • updated by Dawn Kirby 2 years ago 2

Show task in "My tasks" by start date, not due date, so that users are reminded to begin the task on the specified date, rather than relying on mental reminders to begin prior to the due date.

Reports by Tag

Daniel Hurd 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Reporting • updated by Maja Foster 1 year ago 8

I would like to be able to compile a report based on Tags, and specifically resolved Tasks that have certain Tags.


For instance, our content writers have the goal of X (let's say 50) unique content pieces per month. However, along the way to completing one content piece, several other tasks are created and resolved. So, if I look at a report and see that they completed 23 tasks in the content Workspace, in reality they may have only written 18 pieces of content (and there were 5 tasks needed for our graphic designer or pricing analyst or...).


But, if I could build a report based on the Tag "Published" or some such Tag, then I could search for the following in my report:


1. Resolved tasks


2. With Tag "Published"


3. By user or users


This would show me an accurate picture of how many content pieces are actually going live on our website. Let me know if I can clarify anything, and thanks!

Customer / Client Permissions in Redbooth

TheMattyMiller 1 year ago in Feature Requests / Workspaces/Projects • updated by Matthew Miller 2 months ago 8

I really want to be able to bring my customers and clients into Redbooth. But, I can't. The reason is... I can't set permissions for External Users, or Participants. They see too much information and get access to the entire enchilada in my workspace. Private info and all. Now, I know what you are going to say... just set the conversations you don't want them to see as PRIVATE. ... well, my response to that is no way! What a pain. I would rather not set dozens of tasks to private and have special invitations to clients and team members. It should have an option for permissions. Take a look at other PM softwares that have this built in. Teamwork for example does a great job at this. I won't leave Redbooth... but i need this option.
