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'
Custom Statuses for tasks – beta testing is open now.
To enable it for your account and your projects and users you need to be on our Business or Enterprise plans or their equivalents. Please contact us as shown in the attached picture to help us to process your requests faster.
Please check documentation – https://freedcamp.com/Freedcamp_LxR/Freedcamp_Devel_yOf/wiki/wiki_public/view/Espab after getting access especially if you will be applying custom statuses to your existing projects.
Agreed, being able to assign a colour too tasks would be very helpful, even if just a RAG status.
Without talking about Custom Fields feature (who is very interesting and i understand that it's a "priced" feature.
Adding just "pending" in free could be very useful and less frustrating than just have "in progress" status for tasks.
@Megan - using Custom Fields as a substatus will not add extra columns to Kanban view, sorry about it.
We need to add
- more statuses and support multi-column Trello like Kanban
- more substatuses and keep Kanban with three columns, but expose substatus to be visible as labels on tasks.
I can't figure out how to set up substatus since it's not an included field - is this just making a dropdown, or is it a way to integrate it into the actual progress situation (so in Kanban, it can still be under "in progress," but for task or whatever we can see it as "in review" or "needs edits" or something.

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?
