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'
It is in staff testing mode right now. To release even in the beta we also need to make sure the mobile and Gmail./Oulook integrations also support custom statuses.

This would be a gamechanger for me. Without this option, Freedcamp is not working for me. With this option, I'm all yours.
In my opinion having possibility to add substatus, see them and be able to filter them, will perfectly make the job.
Personally I do not think having more than 3 columns in canban view is necessary. 3 colums with substatuses visible with be just perfect.

Corrected to "You will not see more than 3 columns in Kanban view with this approach."
>Or do you in fact mean: "It will however not change your ability to see ONLY 3 columns in Kanban view." ?
> I guess we will be sticking with Trello for the time being.
I guess so and sorry for a confusion with the status update I wrote.
Sorry, I do not understand your response. Specifically, you say:
"It will however not change your ability to see more than 3 columns in Kanban view."
What precisely does this mean? Do we already have the ability to see more than 3 columns in Kanban view, and this will not change? If so, how do I add columns?
Or do you in fact mean: "It will however not change your ability to see ONLY 3 columns in Kanban view." ?
I'm trying to see how I can change the titles of the Kanban lists / columns, and potentially add more. After fiddling about with the new interface for 40 minutes, I searched the support page (no mention) and then came here.
Your comment in the above response to Sudheer added to my confusion...
I guess we will be sticking with Trello for the time being.
Really could use a new stage called "staging" which comes after "in Progress" Thanks!
It would really be a game changer! I have different needs in different projects and the flexibility to change the number os stages would be great.

I would like to be able to rename the columns, and add columns. I like to have a column "Waiting for feedback" so I can see all the tasks for which I need to call someone back and hurry them up.
Meistertask has a good implementation of this functionality.
It would be great if you had the ability to use custom colors to categorize them as well.

Man Just add "on hold" at least
Sounds great Igor! Hopefully it won't take too long for it to be implemented (dependent on the others in the priority list of course).
@David - confirmed as correct.
Just to confirm, as of 1/2017 there is still no way to add or rename status columns in Sticky Note view, is that correct?
Our immediate road-map:
- Gantt (start date tasks and task dependencies)
- recurrent Events
- recurrent Tasks
- Custom fields in Tasks
- open API, Slack, Zapier integrations
- DropBox and OneDrive integrations
- emailing into Freedcamp to create new things
So the only way for now will be to create Custom filed called Substatus and provide values for a drop down list and make it mandatory field however this feature will only be available on Business Plan (old paying customers will be able to buy it from marketplace using old pricing model too).
Igor (FC), what's the state of this? AFAIR it was planned to be done until the end of 2016 or sonner, from what support have said?
Fine, just do it please quickly.
I think it should be simple as SCRUM. And to let the user edit the headers. This way we can simplify and adjust to our workflow. I can say that many PM apps are starting to include Kanban boards because AGILILITY is on the rise.
From my view, i would make a project for every sprint since freedcamp is not really setup for SCRUM. But ideally, having access to the product backlog is useful for planning.
Done or Retrospective
A suggestion: the ability to make your own activity or workflow pipeline in order to track progress for a specific process. For example we as a recruitment company after the candidate qualification we have steps that need to be taken, in order to say that a candidate has gone through the full process.
In short the ability to create a custom kanban with more options inbetween and several steps before it is placed in the last box as completed.Thus creating a pipeline process to your own liking and adding the name of the kandidate to the pipeline to see what steps are still left.
This ability to create your own custom kanban board it will allow for more possibilities and tracking of activities by object.
Yes - looks like we MAY have to go with custom statuses with no hierarchy and allow as many columns as you want. We only need to ask order of them and what statuses mean progress, no progress or completion. If you want to put completion on left and not started statuses on right - it is up to you.
