Add due dates to Sub-tasks and other similar Task functionalities

DJRobbins 3 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Irwin Kwan 2 years ago 22

Enhance the functionality of sub-tasks by adding the same or similar features to it that 'regular' Tasks have-- sub-tasks are often dependencies that must occur before the main task can be completed, these additional features would be useful:

- don't require that a sub-task have a due date, but allow for it to enhance follow-up & enable sub-tasks to appear on the Dashboard.

- provide the ability to assign a sub-task to other members.

We're excited to announce that assignable subtasks are here! Setting due dates and assignees on subtasks is now available under our business plan.


Subtasks that are assigned to you are now easily visible in your My Tasks section as well as highlighted in your Workspace view.


You can learn more about managing subtasks here.


Thank you all for the helpful feedback!

Allow to assign time (not just date) to tasks

Danielle 3 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Ryan Crosbie 2 months ago 37

When there are multiple tasks assigned for one day, it would be helpful to prioritize the tasks by assigning specific times. Higher priority can have an earlier time and so on.


Also, it would be helpful to assign a due time in the day to accommodate meetings etc

Add the ability to assign tasks to more than one person

Anonymous 3 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Irwin Kwan 2 years ago 38

A task sometimes needs more than one person to finish, or more than one person can do it.

Allow to assign priority/severity level for tasks and be able to sort it

Yaron Elhadif 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Ryan Crosbie 1 month ago 14

I would be very useful to have priority/severity level for each task and be able to sort it.

Many times we need to focus on the most important task. Today RedBooth give us due dates and urgent flag. It is not flexible enough.

If you could provide additional flags which will serve as priority, it would be very helpful.

Such as:

URGENT (blocker)

HIGH (1st priority)

MEDIUM (2nd priority)

LOW (3rd priority)

SUGGESTION (not mandatory to handle / new idea / nice to have / if time permit)


This enhancement should also be reflected in dashboard, timeline, reports ....


Thanks:-)

Hi all.  We launched an advanced Tag feature that includes a customizable Priority tag group.  


When a task is tagged, you can filter, search and now sort by tags.  We believe this will be incredible useful for the Priority task users here.


Take a look in you Org Settings > Tags to see all of the features; read more about Advanced Tags in our blog post, or the details in our Help Center.


If you didn't see the invite yet, there is a customer-only Tag demo next Tuesday the 21st.  Register here.


Thanks for all of your contributions to make Redbooth better!

Enable more frequencies for recurring tasks

Anonymous 3 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Ryan Crosbie 2 months ago 30

We have some recurring tasks that repeat every 2 weeks, every 2 months, quarterly, half year and every other year, etc. An example of what we would like is used in Google Calendar settings...

Answer
Ryan Crosbie 2 months ago

Hi Matt and Dan,


We added additional settings for recurring tasks about 3 weeks ago.  What kept us from building an entirely new system was the trouble of making the same flexible change across mobile, and other shared calendaring tools.  Given the number of other items we wish to pursue, the final result project was kept very simple.


As a note to everyone on this thread, this item became more than 1 project.  "More frequencies... just do what Google does... Make it 100% customizable" makes it difficult to ever actually complete projects in the forums.

That said, we did exactly what the initial request suggested:  "We have some recurring tasks that repeat every 2 weeks, every 2 months, quarterly, half year and every other year, etc."


Therefore, marking as completed.  For anyone who has additional needs regarding Recurring tasks, please create a new topic that we can follow.


Thanks!

Allow custom task status options

Anonymous 3 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Ryan Crosbie 1 month ago 19

It would be really nice if we could customize task statuses beyond the Open/Resolved/Urgent that you have today.

Answer
Ryan Crosbie 1 month ago

Hi all.  We launched a tag feature called Tag Groups today, which includes a customizable Status group.  This is not a workflow powered status like Open, Resolved, Urgent, but it will allow you to categorize and search for tasks based on the Status tags.


Take a look in your Org Settings > Tags to see all of the features; read more about Advanced Tags in our blog post, or the details in our Help Center.

Show number of subtasks in a task

Anonymous 3 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Ryan Crosbie 6 months ago 7

Put a visual indicator on those tasks, which hold subtasks.

It'll help to see immediately that there are subtasks inline.
Otherwise we might accidentally put tasks resolved - missing the subtask to complete.

Bonus: state number of subtasks.

Dependency Tweaks

Joshua Moxon 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by ryanh 2 weeks ago 5

Hey All,


So excited to see Gantt charts come back and to have dependencies for tasks! Great job!


I have a couple of requests that I think would make these awesome features even better.


1. Let the user choose the task relationship when promoting a subtask to a full task


Currently when I promote a subtask it gets listed in the "parent" task as a "Related" task. When I then go and give it a dependency in the Gantt chart view it gets listed as a parent or child in the dependency section. Problem, I now have two sections for the same task in the parent task. This makes for quite a bit of clutter and makes for a lot of extra steps. i.e. create subtask, promote subtask, close out tasks, go to gantt chart, find parent task, find child task, create link. I would love to just be able to promote a subtask and say "this is a dependency". Ideally you would have three options that you could select:


  1. this is a child task - define the dependency relationship, most often it would be a child task
  2. this is a parent task - define the dependency relationship
  3. this is a related task - define the dependency relationship, in this case, there is no dependency


2. Let us assign a relationship between two tasks right from the task view

I would envision a button that allows you to search for a task and to say whether it was a parent, child, or related task. Essentially allowing us to create and control relationships between tasks. Currently we have very little control.


3. Let us assign a relationship between two tasks right from the task list

Replicating the functionality of the Gantt chart right in the task list view would make workflow much easier. You don't necessarily have to show the relationship visually, just allow it to be created with a couple of clicks like in the Gantt view.


4. Changing the details of a task should not break the relationship between two tasks.

For some odd reason, when I change a task's due date that has a dependency set, it destroys the dependency relationship. That is really frustrating as it takes a fair amount of time to setup dependencies currently and then if anything changes it break the whole setup.

RTL alignment - Tasks' text

Gil 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by anonymous 2 years ago 4

It will be great if Redbooth will support RTL alignment.

Since we submit most of our tasks in Hebrew, it's sometimes very confusing to read them since the text aligned to the left.

Answer
anonymous 2 years ago

Thanks for your feedback and thanks for being great Redbooth customers.


In the next couple of months, we're focusing our roadmap on enhancing task management capabilities with features like assignable subtasks and new, customizable reports.


We'll update the status of this idea if we're able to add RTL alignment to our roadmap. In the meantime, the Chrome plugin that Yaron suggested is a great workaround.

Task on HOLD

Kelly Parr 3 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Joshua Moxon 2 years ago 3

Additional task scheduling options would be helpful, such as placing a task we don't want to forget about on HOLD.
