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.
Option to pin to the top important tasks on the "My Tasks" view
Here is an exemple (on the left side of the task title)
It is super inefficient to have to use the bottom scroll bar in itself and just awkward to view tasks horizontally for me (and many others). There should still be a view option. At the very least you can scroll quickly to find what you're looking for when tasks are vertically stacked and that saves tons of time when you have even 5 task lists to look through. Imagine when you have 24 ugh
Add possibilty to create one task in a workspace and connect it with another workspace (ie Workspace »Clients« has a deadline that affects workspace »Feature Development«) so it updates automatically (I don't want to copy tasks and keep them manually updated in different workspaces.
Could you please consider adding a 'Years' option to the current Days, Weeks and Months options on Timeline view? Many of our projects extend 12-18 months in duration, particularly when we're conducting sstrategic planning. Thanks!
I need to be able to sort task list(s) by due date and or assignee name and sometimes I need to keep the task list exactly as the template created it. So please allow us to sort lists as we want.
Can you tell us more about what you would like to do?
You can order tasks within a task list however you want by dragging and dropping individual tasks, as well as ordering task lists in any order you want by also dragging and dropping the task lists: https://redbooth.com/help/create-manage-tasks/#5
There may be a way to do this, but I've not figured it out. I have one
workspace with dozens of completed tasks. Sometimes I need to go back and
re-open one that a contractor has closed prematurely or that needs additional
work. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to how they are listed.
Can we sort this list alphabetically or by date to make it easier to navigate?
We just released a new reporting tool that lets you filter tasks by many different filters. In your case, you can filter *resolved* tasks in a given workspace and order them by name.
You have more information about *Task Overview* in this help center article: https://redbooth.com/help/task-overview-reports/
Hope this helps, thanks for your feedback!
Be able to create sub tasks of subtasks and allow some "permission" controls. I have 3 contract engineers working on several projects. I do not want any of them to see information (quotes, times, SOW) for the others so instead of have ONE Network project workspace with three names, I have to have three workspaces. If there were a way to grant read/write/review/modify/full for each task list within a workspace it would be great!
