Change all task's due dates with just one click

Marcos Meson 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by TheMattyMiller 8 months ago 4

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"


How?

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.

Attach files from Redbooth

Daniel Hurd 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated 2 years ago 1

I can attach files from google drive, dropbox, and so on, but I can't attach files which already exist within Redbooth. My team would really benefit from this.


For example, say a spreadsheet needs reviewed by more than one supervisor or department. At a minimum, 2 tasks will be created. Perhaps it's simple enough to have the 2 supervisors or departments click to go back to the hub task where the spreadsheet was initially uploaded, but it would be most convenient if we could post the same attachment from within Redbooth to the 2 separate tasks instead of attaching the spreadsheet from drive or dropbox 2x. For our purposes the tasks have had greater complexity and attaching a file from Redbooth would have been much faster than hunting for it on someone's desktop or drive.

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.

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 1 year ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Heather 1 year 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.


Thanks!

Ability to set/change completion date.

AJ C 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Caroline Fangel 2 months ago 1

Currently when you check a task as complete that's the date that gets set as the completion date. If someone forgets to set the task as complete until the next day the task will now be an extra day long with no way to fix it. Administrators should be able to modify this.

Show progress

Seisei Tatebe-Goddu 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Ryan Crosbie 2 months ago 12

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.

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.

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

J.M. 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Tasks • updated by Ryan Crosbie 6 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 :(

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..
