We absolutely love customer feedback here at Redbooth, and we always look forward to hearing from our customers. Our feedback forums are a great place to post your ideas and vote for ones that matter to you.
Please feel free to share your stories and ideas to help us build Redbooth for your needs. While we read everything that you write, we can't always respond. Thank you.
My idea for Redbooth would be to add a deeper level of subtasks to the templating system. Currently, you can only create 2-3 levels deep on each task template. If redbooth was able to create a task that allowed 4-5 sublevels deep with tasks that would be awesome. The reason for this: The digital (inbound) marketing community has a real need for a project management software that allows them to create templates that have this many levels deep. The goal is to create a repeatable process where an inbound marketer can select a premade template that walks them through all of the tasks for a 3 month period. Having this in one template and not 8-10 templates would be astounding.
The first company to achieve a project management system that is tailored to the inbound marketing community globally wins. Currently, this community of inbound marketing agencies has a growth rate of 40% annually and climbing. The potential to market this to inbound and other types of marketing agency is huge.
I am selfish for suggesting this because I run an inbound marketing agency that is partnered with HUBSPOT corporation and I have seen the struggle first hand, how agencies and users have not found a solution (project management software) that can do this.
Thank you for your consideration of this idea. If you would like more details and a map out of how this would work, I can provide those details for this idea.
It would be very helpful if not only in the project itself, 1 task can be assigned to more than 1 person, but also to include this functionality into the task template.
We have lots of different projects running at the same time and so this would save us lots of time!
When creating a Template Task, or when improving upon a Template Task, have the ability to drag and drop the subtasks in the desired order, in the same way that we're able to do in a task that is in a Workspace.
Create Triggers that will Auto-Assign a Member to the Next Task when previous task is resolved. When the previous task is not yet resolved, the next Task will stay Unassigned. These Triggers would be set up in the Task List Templates.
i.e. Mary resolved Task #1
<Freddie is assigned to Task #2>
Freddie resolved Task #2
<Mary and Freddie are assigned to Task #3>
My team loves using task list templates for projects that have similar processes to other projects. Being able to attach files to task list templates would be really useful. We would attach relevant templates, forms and resources.
I use task templates for administrative law cases with uniform schedules and requirements. Many of my task due dates relate to the hearing date backward, not from the date the template is created forward. It would be great to have the ability to enter more than one, or at least alter the existing, anchor date or tether date - whatever it's called - so that I can have due dates relate to the date of an event that I add in to the template. For example, one task is a prehearing filing due 21 days prior to the hearing date. Many of the legal PM and billing programs have this feature.
I think being able to drag and drop tasks, or copy tasks, from one task list template to another would be a great time saver.
The "__ days after the starting date of the created task list" setting in task list templates doesn't work for the function our company needs for one of our task list templates: generating tasks with a due date range of the week prior to our marketing meeting day, which is held on the first Tuesday of every month.
In other words, we would like to be able to set up this task list template so its tasks have a due date range of the previous week's Monday through the Monday before the Tuesday meeting.
As it currently works, we end up having to go in and set each task's due date manually after the task list is generated. I have a recurring task reminder on the 24th of each month to generate the task list for the meeting...and trying to find the "sweet spot" to enter for the number of days after the starting date of the created task list is time-consuming, and doesn't work more often than not, since the calendar date the marketing meeting falls on varies from month to month.
The option of setting "__ of days BEFORE specified due date" would be incredibly useful in general!
