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!


Do not let a task to be marked as completed if a subtask is not completed

Kaila Covián 10 months ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Heather 10 months ago 1

If you have a subtask you shouldn't be ablo to mark that task as complete until all the sub tasks are ready.


Make subtasks assignable for all plans

Joshua Moxon 1 year ago in Feature Requests / Tasks 0

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.



Auto Assign Tasks By Default to the user that created the task

Nikon 1 year ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Cheryl Russell 17 hours ago 2

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.


Create individual task templates to apply to existing tasks (not task list)

Matt AussieBatteries 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Oliver Rockwell 2 years ago 1

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.

Subtask Indicator on Tasks

mark 4 months ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Daniel Wagner 3 months ago 3

I think it would be very helpful to have a visual indicator - be it a colored dot or a mark of some kind - on a Task indicating that the task has supporting 'subtasks'. This would make managing one's work much for efficient.


Assign task from a list of available people, instead of typing name

J.M. 1 year ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Ryan Crosbie 3 months ago 1

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 :-)


Show progress

Seisei Tatebe-Goddu 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Bnonn Tennant 4 months ago 6

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.


Display date the task was last updated

Deon 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated 2 years ago 1

What would be nice would be to have the date the task was last updated on the summary in the task list..


Allow Recurring Tasks to Populate in Reference Container Tasks

Cori F. 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks 0

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.
