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.

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


Notify assignees of dependent tasks

Deon 1 year ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Joshua Moxon 1 year ago 4

nees of dependent tasks should be automatically notified on the when the task that they are waiting on is updated..


UNDO Option: Subtask to "Make a Task"

Nixaccount 11 months ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated 7 months ago 1

When using subtasks and assigning DUE DATES, the button is immediately next to the "Make a Task" option. On occasion, our team accidentally will "Make a Task" out of a subtask. At this time, there is literally no option to UNDO, CANCEL, ESC, or anything. The option to simply: Stop or Cancel the action is the request.

Since we also can't move a TASK to a SUBTASK or MERGE to a TASK, then the option to UNDO the converting of a Subtask to a "Make a Task" would be a valuable benefit. Thank you.


Subtasks notifications

Sarah Hokuf 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Oliver Rockwell 2 years ago 1

We need to get notifications when a subtask is checked.


Customize Background & Task Colors

Kelly Parr 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Maxim Frolov 5 months ago 3

It would be nice if we could have more options for customizing the background, maybe even add our own picture. Also, it would be nice to have a variety of colors to assign a different color to each task. This makes it easier on eyes for people with ADHD.


Set percent complete on tasks

Scott McCulloch 1 year ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Carlos Rebolledo Aguirre 1 year ago 4

It would be great to be able to set the % complete level on tasks.

This would be especially useful for us to see in Timeline view, as we may see that a task is coming up to its due date, but don't know whether it's only 10% done or 90% done... This information is important so that we can better assess whether we may have a problem meeting due dates and milestones and can take corrective action before it's too late!


Tags colors

Vladi 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Wilbert Caba Viñas 2 months ago 2

It would be much easier to overview if tags could have different colors.

If users can choose the color of each tag it would be even better, if not just random different colors (of course each tag would have the same color everywhere).

Basically, same way as Gmail works with tags.


You should not be able to resolve a task until all sub-tasks are resolved.

Otherwise, sub-tasks really aren't that helpful.


Attach files from Redbooth

Daniel Hurd 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated 2 years ago 1

I can attach files from google drive, dropbox, and so on, but I can't attach files which already exist within Redbooth. My team would really benefit from this.

For example, say a spreadsheet needs reviewed by more than one supervisor or department. At a minimum, 2 tasks will be created. Perhaps it's simple enough to have the 2 supervisors or departments click to go back to the hub task where the spreadsheet was initially uploaded, but it would be most convenient if we could post the same attachment from within Redbooth to the 2 separate tasks instead of attaching the spreadsheet from drive or dropbox 2x. For our purposes the tasks have had greater complexity and attaching a file from Redbooth would have been much faster than hunting for it on someone's desktop or drive.


Option to view all overdue tasks by all users

Michelle Robinson 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Màxim Colls 1 year ago 6

I manage multiple projects at a time. So I would like to view all over due tasks to be able to ask for updates from user or see why they are over due.

Màxim Colls 1 year ago

Hello everybody, I'm glad to tell you that we recently released a new reporting feature called "Task Overview". This new reporting tool allows you to sort all the tasks in Redbooth by "Due date" or "Start date", with this you'll be able to quickly see all the active tasks in any workspace that are overdue.

You'll find more information in our help center https://redbooth.com/help/task-overview-reports/ 😄😄😄

Thank-you for you feedback!
