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


Stack Task Lists

Brian Michaud 1 year ago in Feature Requests / Task Lists • updated by Olivier VIT 1 year ago 2

Instead of the horizontal layout that accompanies multiple task lists, I would like to see the ability to 'stack' task lists on top of one another. That way I can utilize any extra space beneath shorter task lists and avoid the need to have to grab and scroll sideways which is a bit more difficult with horizontal screen layouts.


Copy existing task lists

Tove 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Task Lists • updated by jessica 5 months ago 2

We have a large portfolio of courses which are conducted several times a year. Each course has a unique set of tasks. When planning a course for a client, we use a generic task list template and make the necessary adaptions to the course/client in question. Typically the tasks are updated with specific descriptions, attachments or links. The next time we plan an identical course it would be of great value for us to be able to “reuse” the adapted task list from the previous course, by cloning/copying it, preferably included any attachments, comments, subtasks etc.

Hello Tove!

I'm happy to say that we added the ability to copy any task, task list and workspace. This is an article explaining how to do that: https://redbooth.com/help/tutorials/copy-reuse-workflows/, I hope that it helps!

Thanks for the feedback!


viewing the subtask and description along with the task, in the task list as well as gant chart.

Aishwarya 1 year ago in Feature Requests / Task Lists • updated by Jaret Wieland 1 year ago 1

its very difficult to open each task to check for the subtask and description. so please allow viewing the subtask and description along with the task, in the task list as well as gant chart.


Adding tasks and phases flow should be forward and not backwards.

Pedro Gomes Design 1 year ago in Feature Requests / Task Lists • updated by gbb000 8 months ago 2

When adding task they should be added in order.

If I'm building a task list that has a specific flow the new task I add should be added after the previous. As of now, when I add a new task, it adds it over the previous one which then makes me reverse the order always.

Same happens when adding task lists.

We usually build tasks lists with an operational flow from left to the right.

When I building tasks list, I start from the beginning to the end which should mean - adding task lists should flow from left to right.

It does not.

When I add a new task list it adds to the left end and I always have to move it all the way to the right.

Hope I'm clear on representing this challenge we have.

Is this flow customizable? It would speed up a lot faster our work flow!



Tasks with attached files should have an attachment icon -- like a paperclip icon.

There is no way to know if additional documents are attached to a task. Adding an icon to a task within a list would solve this issue.


Make little icons for subtasks, descriptions, and comments

gbb000 8 months ago in Feature Requests / Task Lists 0

Trello has this great simple feature that inform you at a glance that a description, subtask, or comment has been made inside a task. In this top task, there is nothing additional. In the bottom, there are all three present:

It would be great if we could do this on Redbooth! Instead of having to check and see, or put notes manually


Move Primary Task to become a Sub Task of another Primary Task.

nix 12 months ago in Feature Requests / Task Lists 0

Currently we can take sub tasks and make them a primary. However, I don't see a way to take an existing Primary task and make it a Sub Task on another primary. I currently have 3 tasks that should all be MERGED. The idea of taking 2 and making them a sub task of the main one would be great.


Add a "Phase" or "Stage" level above task lists - for Agile/Gantt hybrids

Steven 1 year ago in Feature Requests / Task Lists • updated by Bnonn Tennant 1 month ago 2

Our work (architecture) falls generally into predefined stages/phases in a TPM format since our design contracts follow sequential development. Within stages is another matter, as we increasingly find our clients' needs to be less sequential (agency approvals, sub-packages, fast-tracking) and ourselves resolving items as they arise - much more suited to Agile/Kanban workflows. We love the Kanban capability of the task lists (our teams employ a 5-step hybrid Kanban: backlog -> week ahead -> in progress -> completed -> review), but using them in this manner renders the timeline mostly useless. What would be incredibly useful for our teams is a way to group multiple task lists (in the Kanban format) under a phase or stage on the timeline. The stages can remain high-level sequential "waterfall" milestones (with their own dependencies) for our team and clients, but our day-to-day can operate in more collaborative sprints/charettes on the task list.

A alternative way to achieve the same would be to offer progress/status for each task and a filter in the task list view to reorganize by status - MS Planner offers a similar functionality in 365. Perhaps building on the mark urgent option, a status button? We could then organize each task list as a stage/phase itself, but our day to day view could be organized by status.


Thinner task lists option

Dotan Cohen 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Task Lists • updated by Mariano Sanz Gil 1 year ago 1

The task lists seem to have very beautiful CSS that compromises utility for the sake of good looks. It would be great if there were an option for a denser CSS that would make each list thinner. The Gmail interface has such an option (Comfortable, Cozy, Compact) for differing levels of information density and it is absolutely terrific.

For instance, the grab handle is redundant if the user already knows that he can click and grab each list item. There seems to be a good 20px wasted between the list item text and the Calendar / Assigned User icons. The task checkbox, text, and Calendar / Assigned User icons could do with significantly less padding.

If these changes would help squeeze an additional vertical list onto the page, that would be very, very helpful.

Thank you!
