  1. When in the Kanban view of the task board, it'd be great if I could limit the vertical height of each swimlane for the task lists. Something like show the top 5 tasks in each column for this swimlane, but then only show the full expanded columns if I click a "View More" button or similar.

    The problem I'm running into is that I use the "No Progress" column as a backlog and a large backlog pushes my other swimlanes way out of my view. Seeing the top few tasks would be nice so we can see the highest priority…

  3. I would like the ability to have recurring tasks show historical comments. The purpose of recurring that it happens every week (or so) and so any comments that were made would be super helpful to see so that we can look back on what happened.

    Or another option would be to link the discussions with the comments to track what was discussed previously.

    My use case is that I use the recurring to remind me of meetings that come up and to record what happens in those meetings.

    Please use recurrent Events instead – all comments will be there historically – we use it at Freedcamp for a virtual weekly catch-up completed last week/planned for the next week (each week is one comment).

  5. It would be great if tasks could be moved as subtask to another task in the Android App and in the mobile view of the website.

  6. Have a button for new task on the menu bar (at bottom of screen) next to calendar / Notifications to allow for easier task creation from a mobile, instead of tapping the 3 dot button in the corner.

  7. Would it be possible to add a column view to the task lists? Currently the Task name, Status, Start Date and Due Date are all crowded together. It would be nice if each was in a clearly defined column with column headers.

  8. When mousing over a task it expands vertically to reveal the + Edit ... buttons. My tendency is to place the mouse pointer right on the task list, which rapidly expands and contracts each task.

    The visual effect is a bit nauseating. :-)
    Is it possible to turn off this animation and just include the buttons on the same line as the task?

    Or if the box expanded horizontally that would likely mitigate the effect, as well. Thanks!

  9. Why have a start date if it does not affect the to-do task list? I wish the tasks that had not gone past the start date did not show up on the list of tasks todo until the start date has arrived. I often have tasks that are days or weeks out and they still so on the to-do list on the main screen even though it is not time to do them.

  10. Currently you have to go through the ...-menu in every task to delete it, discouraging its use as an expansive todo-list, limiting it to being a reference workflow/collaboration tool where you are selective in what 'data' you add. Perhaps that is the idea, perhaps it is not.
    If it is not, I would suggest (a) adding a 'bin' icon next to the 'pencil' one, making that action easier and (b) removing the prompt asking for confirmation, changing it to a 10 second 'undo' button for those that don't have the trash can of the premium tiers.

  11. Would it be possible to add a new icon in the projects menu with an external link? That way we could for example add a link to special external resources for our clients

  12. There is no location I can find other users to ask specific use questions or talk about different ways to use the tools provided. It would also be a place for freedcamp devs to mine information.

  15. I frequently use the option to Shift Dates to reschedule all subtasks under a parent task when viewing that parent task on the Task Board view for the associated project.

    Likewise it would be helpful to have the same Shift Dates option for the subtasks listed under that parent task when I am viewing the Parent Task only - not on in the Task Board view.

    The Shift Dates option for Sub Tasks would also be helpful in the Task Board view when a specific Project IS NOT selected

  16. Our office is all remote and it would be great to be alerted when someone completes a task my next step depends on. WITHOUT having to stalk email.

    At the moment I need email updates for all activity and am enduring text updates about everything while I wait. That's distracting!

    You set email notifications to ‘full’ which is not the default. Please check (6-7) https://freedcamp.com/Freedcamp_LxR/Freedcamp_Devel_yOf/wiki/wiki_public/view/phaab#settings and do not subscribe to items not assigned to you and you will not be notified. Right now with the ‘full’ level you get subscribed to absolutely all items in your projects.

    Task dependencies are available on the Business and Enterprise plans only.

  19. I would like to have tasks that are my own but not associated with a project. We're looking to use Freedcamp across the organization (private school), both within and across departments. I would like to be able to add my own tasks that are not a part of a project but are just for me to do because they are a part of my job.

  20. Currently you can view multiple projects on Gantt at once, but you cannot see task-level detail. This makes it difficult to see if tasks from separate projects overlap. Would be ideal if we could expand (+/-) the project to see tasks on multiple projects to see which tasks overlap each other.

    For example, if you have multiple projects in process for a client, and you need to space out their review windows (so you don't give them multiple deliverables to review at once) it would help to see the tasks together on the Gantt to ensure proper scheduling.
