  1. Assign task to more than one person

    Currently you can only assign a to-do to one person or every person.

    It would be great to be able to assign a to-do to 2< people.

    • Integration with Slack

      Slack is a chat service for teams. It would be nice to see a Service Hook for it.

        Hi All,

        Update: We are in Zapier beta and will be launching it publicly at Zapier and Freedcamp very soon. You can use Zapier now to connect Slack and Freedcamp

        Cheers,

      • Tasks - more Progress Status Types

        It will be great if you add task statuses different than 'in progress' and 'closed' i.e. we are software company that have different workflow:
        'not started', 'in progress', 'done', 'for testing', 'competed', 'archived'

          Hi All,

          We think that each task can be only in progress, not in progress or completed but true – not in progress task can have a clarification sub-status like ‘waiting for a feedback’ or ‘postponed’ and we do consider adding sub-statuses in the future. Things like ‘Testing’, ‘Review’ – task lists can be used to handle. A task in ‘Testing’ task list will still be in progress, not started or completed because if you set it as status you will never know if actual testing phase not started, in progress or completed. To handle this in Kanban view we plan to allow to switch Kanban view to show columns as task lists in addition to by status available now. Hope it helps what is planned and what to expect.

          Summary:
          - add substatuses (allow to edit them)
          - Kanban columns either per status+sub-status or task list

          Please email your…

        • Integrate Tasks and Time applications in Freedcamp

          It will be great if for every to do you can enter the estimided time, the time used in the task and the % of complete of the task!
          I have used a lot of similar softwares that have this, but neither of them are as simple as freedcamp, i think that if you can integrate that as simple as you do everything it will be more than GREAT!

          • Set estimated hours for a task

            I need some way to be able to say how much time is to be spent on a task, and then to track that time as it is used. All tasks at the moment are tracked by milestones, so far as I can see. Setting delivery dates is fine, but without know just how many estimated hours are left, and how far through each task is, it is difficult to plan daily activities to meat those milestones.

              Hi All,

              We will be starting it as soon as we push English locales to http://translate.freedcamp.com for community to translate and launched white label (both improvements were sponsored).

              Regarding Last Tim’s comment. I see progress tracking to be totally flexible from no tracking, as now, to estimate vs worked hours and all in between.

              I see it as a project creation wizard, where you create your N’s project and select how you want to track progress and have an option to say ‘Use these same settings for all my future projects’. Once set, Freedcamp will not ask you again but prompt you to a) invite people and b) show what project settings will be used, giving you a chance to jump in and change defaults.

              This way we save your time, if you use same settings for all projects. Those who do not want to track progress at all will…

              • Have a webmail client built in with ability to save an email to a project

                If there was an email tab that connects to a users inbox e.g. via IMAP a user could then work mostly within Freedcamp.

                If there is then an email that might be of use to other users, this email could be dragged and dropped to a specific project (perhaps saved as a note?)

                  Hi All,

                  Adding full blown email client will be very hard. What if instead we will ask you what email client you are using and develop plugins allowing to access projects and tasks from your existing email client instead?

                  Cheers,

                      Hi All,

                      Since there are 50 votes here, I am asking everyone who is still using Freedcamp to give me a short description or a link to other service where we can check and why Wall is not good enough.

                      As you probably noticed, we had to disable instant notifications recently as Pusher.com removed discounts they provided us from early Freedcamp and Pusher days. We cannot afford to pull a full price as we send close to 200 notifications a minute. Team is working on launching own notification server based on open source alternative of Pusher.com called Slanger. Once done – we will enable notifications back.

                      Thank you for sraying with us. We are now full time – most of missing bits and pieces will be done by year end.

                      Thank you
                      Igor

                      • Create milestones in Gantt charts

                        Create milestones in Gantt charts: when creating a task, it would be great to be able to configure milestones related to such a task, so it would be visually present in the Gantt chart of the related task.

                          Hi All,

                          Please post +1 in comments if you are already on the Business plan or waiting this feature to be released to upgrade. This ‘comments’ voting will tell us how many users are realistically waiting for this functionality to be implemented.

                          Functionality:

                          Version 1
                          - enable Gantt view inside Milestones application
                          - Show Milestones in a way we show now Task Lists in Gantt view with the exception that Milestone start/due date remain the same even if tasks in a milestone are outside milestone start/due dates.
                          - show tasks which are not part of any milestone in a separate list ‘Unassigned’

                          It will be no global Milestones view across projects in version 1 yet and it will be no notifications related to tasks conflicting with milestones dates.

                          Thank you
                          Igor

                        • 2-Way sync with Google Calendar

                          I would love to be able to sync my Google calendar (both ways) with Freedcamp to allow me to see events that I create in Google Calendar in our Freedcamp, as well as items that I create within Freedcamp on my Google calendar (e.g. 2-way sync). This would be especially helpful when creating events that require invitations to be sent to people who are not Freedcamp users, (e.g. clients) and would allow us to easily duplicate events easily into other (e.g. Personal) Google calendars.

                              Hi All,

                              Since everyone here is a software developer – let’s get serious about it → define scope, count how many people can contribute and either collect money directly as a donation or go Kickstarter just to add this extension for you.

                              Other option – one or few business sponsors who already use Freedcamp and need this extension – http://blog.freedcamp.com/2015/11/25/sponsor-feature-development-get-freedcamp-life-time-free-with-unlimited-storage/ – you will get a great deal of paid services free in return – we promise.

                              We know that a lot of software developers use Freedcamp to talk to clients and use other tool to manage software development process and we understand pains of using two systems.

                              We would love to but have no resources now to open Freedcamp to allow you guys create extensions (both free and paid) and offer them on our marketplace like SalesForce or Apple do.

                              It is a part of our vision but we haven’t…

                              Hi Freedcampgroup,

                              so far im very happy with your tool. but 1 think im reallyx missing is the function to set individual role permissions. just a simlpe checkbox list which role is able to use which function. your predefined roles are not bad, but for several use cases i would like to have the option to define my own user roles with own rights. cazse right now setting up this project this can be a show-stopper for me :(

                              best regards

                                  We have two use cases here.

                                  1. Making is super easy to work with clients. Clients can see only Discussion and Tasks which specifically marked as visible to them. Rest is not visible to them

                                  2. Allowing true privacy – concept described by Caroline. Once this mode is enabled users can create private tasks and decide who they want to share it with.

                                  @Caroline – I assume project and project group administrators should be able to see private tasks. Right?


                                  NEW UPDATE

                                  Probably we should move Private Tasks and Private Discussions into a separate add-on which is not available by default.

                                  We have requests for private tasks and we have requests for disabling privacy – when a teacher in a school does not want students to create private tasks at all.

                                  I assume functionality similar to Private Discussions we already have in Freedcamp is what you are after.


                                  OLD UPDATE

                                • "Notes" tab for projects

                                  Right now we use the Discussion board for notes, but it seems a little more than what is needed for basic notes. Re regularly like to update the project about contact that we have with our clients and having a simple tab where we can just say "Add Note" would be great. That way a list of our notes is in chronological order and easier to navigate than the Discussion tab.

                                  • Possibility to attach a poll to a discussion post

                                    It would be nice to be able to attach a custom poll at the end of a discussion post.

                                    I think a lot of people use Freedcamp for collaborative projects where there's a regular need to choose between different options, and a poll would be way easier to manage this than everyone posting their own opinion as a comment to the discussion.

                                      Hi All!

                                      Should a poll have an optional due date after which voting is not allowed?

                                      Should we send people having access to a poll who haven’t voted yet reminders and if so – how many and how often?

                                      Thanks
                                      Igor

                                      Currently using Teamweek to plan out the tasks in a visual manner, and Toggl to track the time, it would be great to have this as a timer option for thing like tasks under projects.
