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.
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.
Tasks can be "Urgent" in Redbooth, but they can be also "Important", "To be done today", "Internal", "Bonus"... I mean, tasks can have "flags" for status different than just time, and it would be great to be customizable by each company, with colours or something like that...
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!
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
Maybe this already exists? I can select more than one task by holding the control or shift button and choosing more tasks, but when I try to drag them to another task list (like I do with individual tasks), I am unable to do so. I create task lists every two weeks for organization reasons. So I'm always pulling unfinished tasks from the old to the new. Thanks!
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.

Hope this helps, thanks for your feedback!
