  1. 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

      • Adding a status to any projects in the "Manage Project"

        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

                    • Webservices Engine to allow REST API connections

                        Hi

                        You do not want to use a combination of API and Zapier we already provide https://freedcamp.com/Freedcamp_LxR/Freedcamp_Devel_yOf/wiki/wiki_public/view/aGcab but need an event based API with ability to connect your web hook to listen to events in Freedcamp directly?

                        Please note that at this stage ut is adeal for us to keep developing API to read and write data and extended Zapier integration capabilities by adding new triggers, actions and searches.

                        Regards,
                        Igor

                      • Display project name in each task when viewing in My Work or Recap

                        Our team works through daily tasks using the "My Work" view, and since a lot of projects use the same tasks, having the project name attached would help differentiate.

                            • Automatic Shift start dates when no progress / Stretch in Gantt when in progress and not completed

                              Hi,

                              While using the Gantt-chart it's not easy when tasks have a start date in the past. The task is potentially out of sight because it's far to the left from now.

                              I think it would be a great improvement to the gant chart that:
                              If tasks that have a start date but are not set to in progress/completed would shift automatically in the gantt chart to the now line. To complete this, a task with a start date and set to in progress and not yet completed should stretch in the Gantt chart to now or show the yet…

                                Hi Henk,

                                What if instead of moving tasks which is always not obvious we will allow to click on a task on the left side and Gantt will scroll to navigate to that task instead?

                                Thanks for contributing!

                                Cheers,
                                Igor

                              • FERPA compliance

                                Schools need to use software that is FERPA compliant. It would just be minor tweaks to the privacy and data retention policies and then schools could use Freedcamp.

                                  • Recurring Task Due Days and Automatic "Due Today" option

                                    I would like to have my Recurring Tasks have associated "due days/dates" like "Every Monday, create ad, due for Wednesday (or 2 days later)". Also, for quickly adding to my task list, I'd like the option/setting for any todo's I make for myself to be "due today" if I don't set a date. If this is already possible, please let me know. Thanks!

                                      Hi Leeanna,

                                      We honestly tried to figure this out but it should work for all use cases and not be confusing.

                                      For example, what if you have a task starting last Monday and due date last Friday and you edit it now, enable recurrence and set a recurrence to run such task every Monday and Friday?

                                      Based on users feedback so far we will be adding next improvement:

                                      We will start creating next recurrent task so it shows up in 1-7 days span in advance with a due date so a new recurrent task will start appearing on Daily Recap and you will see it in at least 7 days before it is scheduled by a recurrence rules. You can than jump and set requires start/due dates.

                                      I hope it will make it more convenient for you too.

                                      Cheers,
                                      Igor

                                    • Project view on calendar

                                      Right now you can filter for individual projects and see all the tasks related to that project. What I’d really love is if I could have a project-level view, where I can just see the start/end date of the projects spanning across various weeks. That way I could look at a given month and see high level which projects the company is focusing on, and decide when I should time out the start date of a new project. Right now, I know there is an end date to projects, but not necessarily a start date (but maybe that is the…

                                        Hi Elizabeth,

                                        Thanks for posting. We have just added beta Gantt for projects as part of Business and Enterprise plans. We show projects using either minimum start date or due date and maximum start date or due date set in Tasks.

                                        If you want to try it – please start Business plan trial and email help@freedcamp.com to enable Gantt for projects since it is in beta.

                                        Cheers,
                                        Igor

                                        It would be helpful to have a flag on the apps in the sidebar menu for a project when content is present in each (discussions, files, etc...)

                                          I would like to have a report of tasks with photos or add a user as observer without signing up.
