Resizeable left column in Gantt view

aryk 11 months ago in Feature Requests / Timeline 0

Pretty simple ask. If you have longer task names, and a wide monitor, I should be able to resize the left column so I can see more of the task name.

Right now it is fixed and cuts off pretty much all my task names.


Attribute colors to different users

Enable the use of colors that are attributed to different users especially for the gantt/timeline view


add subtask proceedings on time line bars

william.varley 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Timeline • updated by Maja Foster 2 years ago 1


would be cool to see how many subtasks have been completed already directly on the bars in the timeline view.

Say, a task has 4 subtasks - simply put small boxes / circles within the bar which are then checked or marked with a different colour once they are completed. that way the project manager can directly see status quo.


display task name on gantt chart / calendar green bars

I mean here:

priority: medium

cost: low


Timeline: enable collapsible view of sub-tasks

James B 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Timeline 0

A colliapsible view of sub-tasks would be helpful in the timeline view.

Even if dates are not assignable to sub-tasks, just being able to see them without clicking on each task would be helpful.


widen the left menu in timeline view

Paolo 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Timeline 0

Time line is A_mazing but ... can you implement widening the left menu please? Task descriptions get cut off because of the fixed width of the menu and we are forced to write the tasks in a way that the visible part is recognizeable right away. Would be easier to just be able to widen the menu - like you have on the right hand side when you're in task-list view ... so the coding/technology to make that happen you already have in the system, it's just applying it to the left menu scetion as well.


Order timeline view in the asem order as tasks lists

Jeff Cox 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Timeline • updated by Irwin Kwan 2 years ago 1

In the time line view it appears that the task lists are ordered by Alpha and not the order they are in task view. I would suggest they would order by default in th same order they are on task list view or allow you to drop and drag the order.

Hi Jeff,

In Timeline view, tasklists are ordered automatically by start date, which follows the Gantt chart convention. You can find out more about it in our help center: https://redbooth.com/help/tasks-in-timeline-gantt/


Timeline feedback

Sergio S. 2 years ago in Feature Requests / Timeline 0


I´ve been working with timeline for a few weeks by now and I´ve found some weak points I would like to share with you.

The first one refers to the task list in the left panel in the timeline view. In this panel, task names get so compressed that it is impossible to read them. It would be better to re-sizes this space or at least generate an option to read the names completely (for example, when the mouse passes over the name, a window could appear showing the entire name of the task). See Picture 1

The second suggestion is related to tasks with dependencies (child and parents tasks). It would be interesting that when dependent tasks are modified in its date, all the related tasks suffer the same modification. For example, if the first task is move ahead 5 days, the child tasks gets modify in the same way. At this moment, when this modification takes place, the bond between tasks is broken. Picture 2

Thanks in advanced,

Best regards,
