We absolutely love customer feedback here at Redbooth, and we always look forward to hearing from our customers. Our feedback forums are a great place to post your ideas and vote for ones that matter to you.
Please feel free to share your stories and ideas to help us build Redbooth for your needs.
For us, often a task in Redbooth will start as an email sent to the inbox, or a conversation. Eg. update the website with our new logo
After discussing and sorting out details, this small task like this would benefit from subtasks added. Eg.
1 - Get new logo in web format
2 - Add to development site
3 - test changes
4 - go live
The only way to do this is right now is to
A) create a new task from a task list template (losing all the discussion on the original task)
B) manually add subtasks to the current task (time consuming if there are 15+ subtasks)
C) copy an existing task which you have set up to be a template (losing all the discussion on the original task)
It would be handy to be able to apply a "task template", which adds subtasks and perhaps description to the existing task. Currently we achieve this by using macros to do this, but it's far from ideal.
I was excited to see several months ago that work was being done on assignable subtasks and was even more excited to get a notification that assignable subtasks were rolling out. I am however really disappointed that this was only rolled out for business plans.
This has been a request for many years dating all the way back to the previous feedback forum and is, in our opinion, basic functionality that strikes at the core of Redbooth as a task management system.
I appreciate your willingness to get feedback on product improvements. We love what you have created and hope to see it continually improved. Please consider making subtasks assignable for all plans.
Our team is just starting with Redbooth and I notice there is a growing amount of unassigned tasks. Our team will add tasks at their desks or on the go via mobile. It seems that a lot of these tasks are unassigned. When viewing reports I do not have a realistic view of where the workload is. Implementing an option to auto assign new tasks to the user that created the task would be helpful.
I liked it so much better when you could choose from a list of people to assign a task! Instead of now having to type in their name :(
This is completed :-)
Other PM systems will allow you to track the progress of a task or milestone based on subtasks that are checked off (Wunderlist, Teamwork). Would be great to see that here.
Also it would be nice if it was possible to track status of tasks--show that it's started vs not started.
Allow recurring tasks to populate in reference container tasks. For example, we have an ongoing task with 5 recurring tasks to be completed each week. Once a reference task is resolved, and the recurring task kicks off, the recurring not referenced in the original task.
I would love to see an option to merge two tasks together.
Say someone in one department has made a task and assigned it to you. Then, another person who is not reading all the tasks that come up on the board creates almost identical task and assigns to you. Now you have several options:
1. Reply in both tasks
2. Delete or resolve one task, then assign (or notify) creator of this task to the second one and reply.
3. Delete both tasks and create a new one with creators of both tasks assigned.
Option 1 is not very efficient, and options 2 and 3 create some confusion ("Hey, where did my task go?").
It would be simpler and so much efficient if you could merge those tasks into a single one.
So the scenario is:
I have a task list with 17 tasks. All of them have due dates and want want to move all of their due dates with just "one click"
First select all tasks (this already works.)
Next click on one due date, and change it to be due 5 business days later.
Once you selected the due date, you should see that all other due dates got moved 5 business days .
FYI I know this can be done with task-list template, but my issue is that it is too late in the project to recreate these tasks from the template because we already have notes, attachments etc.
