Timeline overview of all workspaces

Johan Jøsok 3 years ago in Feature Requests / Timeline • updated by Tony Hue 2 weeks ago 37

The new timeline feature is great. Our team use one workspace for each project, and the timeline feature will make it a lot easier to manage each project.


A great feature would be to add an overall timeline view for all workspaces, to make it easier to manage resources across several projects.

Hi everyone! This is Tony from Redbooth.

We just launched Timeline Overview, a report that lets you easily plan and manage tasks from multiple workspaces in a single timeline. The Report Builder, collapsible lists, and additional filtering make it easy to focus on what tasks are important now, and to see who is assigned to them.

• Try Timeline Overview here: https://redbooth.com/a/#!/apps/reporting/timelines

• Read our blog post: https://redbooth.com/blog/introducing-timeline-overview

• For questions, visit our help center article: https://support.redbooth.com/hc/en-us/articles/360018678752-Timeline-Overview

Timeline Overview is available now for Business plan plan customers. Free and Pro users can try it out for 14 days. Just email us at support@redbooth.com and we can activate the feature in your accounts.

Thank you so much to you all for sharing your feedback and voting for this idea. We really appreciate your support!

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.


Answer

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 TheMattyMiller 4 weeks ago 41

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 3 months 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 4 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 4 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!

Add milestones

Anonymous 3 years ago in Feature Requests / Workspaces/Projects • updated by ryanh 2 months ago 15

Sometimes you want to track when you reach a key point in a project, a milestone and not a task. It would be great if Redbooth would allow you to add these points to your plans.

Allow custom task status options

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


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