  1. CRM - Campaign Custom Fields don't work

    You can view / add / delete custom fields from "CRM -> Campaigns -> Settings -> Manage Custom Fields" but...

    There is no way to view or edit them! :/

    They do not appear when you view a Campaign, they do not appear when you edit a Campaign - so these custom fields are largely useless!

    When (if?) they do finally appear, it'd be nice to have a way for them to be listed in the main Campaign table. In general, it'd be nice to select which columns you'd like to display in the table.

    Cheers,

    Steve.

    • Notify an email address in discussions

      It would be great if it would be possible to add an email address (or several) for a discussions for people that are not on-board with the project or on freedcamp but just need CC info for a certain discussion. I used this on basecamp before and it was very handy. These "outside email receivers" can also reply (by email) and their comment will arrive in to the discussion thread
      Thanks

        Hi,

        We can only consider adding this function to only paid plans (not even paid plans trials) because Freedcamp is constantly tried by email spammers who try all they can to use us to send spam emails.

        Regards,
        Igor

      • Show project name and project name when items are shown across multiple projects

        Include project name next to tasks on email notifications + "My Work" & "Important Updates" on Freedcamp.com

        There are many places where you can see tasks that are currently active and assigned to you, including:
        • Daily email notifications from Freedcamp
        • Freedcamp.com dashboard: the "My Work" module
        • Freedcamp.com dashboard: the "Important Updates" module

        However, the associated project name is not listed next to these tasks.

        My challenge with this is that we often have the same tasks assigned to us across different projects. So seeing the name of a task is not helpful enough. Need to know which…

          I guess this has to be optional. For a lot of users, your use case is not applicable but will make UI much messier.

          Right now everywhere you can hover your mouse and see the project name and project group name associated with the task.

        • Discussions - overview of all discussions across all projects

          As there already is an overview of all tasks across the projects, there could also be an overview of all discussions across the projects.

          • Bug: iOS: Assign Task To during Add Task causes the current operation to be canceled.

            Repo steps:
            1. Click Add Task
            2. Type in task description
            3. Click icon of person with + sign
            4. Select a person from the list
            Notice that you are back to what you had before clicking Add Task.

            Workaround: don’t assign task until after it has been created.

            • 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

                • Allow to organize projects on Dashboard Kanban style

                  I would like to be able to move the project cards around the Dashboard like the tasks in the Kanban boards.

                    • 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,
                        Igor

                      • Contacts database (only a basic one)

                        An area for adding basic contacts so you can attach a digital business card to a task so the person dealing with a particular job can view client contact details relating to the task for example.

                          Hi All,

                          Regarding status – we do not plan to add it soon. As you can see it has 15 votes. We have features voted by 500+ people and we are a very small team.

                          However if your company is willing to sponsor this feature – please contact igor@freedcamp.com. We will make sure we compensate you for helping us to make Freedcamp better.

                          As I understand it will be enough to add extra fields to user’s profile which are easily available on avatar click anywhere in Freedcamp which will show information user’s shared like phone, address, email etc. and may be a new view in manage projects to show/filter/search users and display they information.

                          Is it correct?

                          Cheers,
                          Igor

                        • Cross projects Milestones

                          A lot of milestones are cross project milestones. It would be great to have the ability to add a milestone to a whole group

                            Hi All,

                            Thanks for posting.

                            My understanding is that you want:

                            - ability to add project milestones to project group milestones

                            - ability to add project group milestones into a global milestone.

                            - ability to add project tasks to a project group milestone directly

                            - ability to add a task to a global milestone directly.

                            Cheers,
                            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.

                              Please give me an example of a system out there where you can take calendar to Google, change an event in Google Calendar for that system and see changes you have made back in that system.

                              In the "Manage Project" page, it would be great to clearly see the status (=global progress of a project) : Complete, in progress, pending, thanks to a small icon or the use of colors.

                                Hi All,

                                We discussed various ideas with the team. I can share some thoughts with you here.

                                - add option to set status for a project – green, yellow, red
                                - add option to set project due date
                                - add option to add short project status
                                - add option to add those who can change above and get notified on changes in above (like PM’s)

                                All projects can have different applications and progress can be tracked by different teams in very different ways. Some will be fine with tasks completed vs in Progress vs Not started. Some use Milestones and want to see next milestone completion status in a project. Some will have set hours and want to track set hours vs worked ours. Some want to see overdue tasks or tasks where time estimate less than worked hours.

                                All of above should be configurable and once set for one…

                              • Task / Event Workflow

                                It would be great if we could create a series of tasks that are scheduled sequentially one after the other. In our projects we have repetitive tasks that get triggered from one task or event (i.e. trigger event: Meeting, tasks associated with the trigger: prepare agenda, submit presentation, create meeting minutes, etc.). We now have to create them all individually.

                                  Hi Roberto,

                                  Have you ever used or considered to use Zapier? Will you be willing to use another service to automate workflow in Freedcamp? We may not have all that is required but adding Zapier triggers and actions is much simpler since we already have Zapier integrations.

                                  Please reply in comments.

                                  Cheers,
                                  Igor

                                  • Collapsible sub tasks like Smart Sheet style Grid View

                                    Collapsible sub tasks like Smart Sheet style Grid View with multiple column visible (Right now you loose all the column views). Right now once you collapse you won't be able to see the columns other that the task title.

                                    • Setting tasks dependencies across projects

                                      It would be great to link task to another, cause it's very usual that one task in one project to impact the schedule of another.

                                      Such as link "previous task" ou "next task after this" and so on. It would automate so much hand work.

                                      • Email In Due Date

                                        It would be awesome if there was a way that we could set due dates when using the Email-In function.

                                        • Global Apps centric vs. project centric approach

                                          i realize this is not a short-term request and is a major shift from how freedcamp works now so maybe this might be consideration for when there is a major update in the future.

                                          I love Freedcamp, but it has felt a little off to me and I couldn't put my finger on it until today. If feels backwards as I'm using it.

                                          If I want to go into the CRM, I have to first remember which project I attached the CRM to. Same with all the major apps: files, issue tracker, wiki, discussions, etc...

                                          It would seem to make…

                                            Hi Jody,

                                            CRM is a project group application https://freedcamp.com/Freedcamp_LxR/Freedcamp_Devel_yOf/wiki/wiki_public/view/Pgaab

                                            You can access project group applications from Project Board https://freedcamp.com/dashboard
                                            They are shown next to a project group name or inside project picker – same. You do not need to go into a project to access it. Side menu inside all projects in a project group will show CRM link to the same CRM added to that project group.

                                            You are right to the point that Invoices, Passwords and CRM should probably become global apps not project group related – you add those who you want to be able to access it by selecting from invited users or just inviting directly to Passwords without a need to invite to a project first.

                                            Regards,
                                            Igor
