  1. Employee scheduling app or schedule maker that included a time card and time calculation.

    If there was an employee scheduling app or schedule maker that included a time card and time calculation, I would pay for it immediately. My employees are already trained to check in to FreedCamp.. why would I want to send them to one more site to clock in and out of work?

    I've checked with several accounting add-ons to our other programs and none have a time-card, even payroll services do not! HUGE HUGE HOLE in the market that no one is filling well, or those who are want $100's a month and are missing out on business due to…

  2. To-Dos title should be clickable to get to description.

    To-Do's title should be clickable to get to description from anywhere you can see the title (i.e. widget, to-do's list, etc.)

  4. IM

    It would be really great to have the opportunity to communicate via instant messaging for direct subjects who are not requiring a new post..

  5. Project Picture or Logo

    Pictures is a way faster to identify things, so it will be much cooler than text to see the working project logo on your go, it is too important to have this I think .

  6. Wall privacy for admin/user

    We just tested out what a project would look like for a Client user and noticed that they have access to our Wall. I then saw that you can change privacy per each comment as you're posting it, but you can't do this retroactively. Also, you have to change the privacy settings each time.

    Could you please allow us to retroactively change the privacy settings and to keep the privacy settings the same for each new comment?

  7. A more intuitive way to display task lists for individual team members

    I had some trouble getting Freedcamp to display tasks based for individual team members. I achieved this by creating a "To-Do Widget" for All Projects, Not Completed, Count: 20, Title: My Tasks.

    This comes out of the box with Basecamp with their user pages -- and since many of your users are Basecamp users looking for a free alternative, it would make sense to provide a more intuitive solution for novice users to achieve this.

  8. A reminder - sms alert or message to your e-mail "Did you forget to clock out?"

    It would be a nice feature to have a message or sms alert - "Did you forget to clock out?" in case the computer sees you have been working on something for more than 24 hours. You could set it yourself to 48 or more hours, in case you are on a deadline and really are working on it for x hours straight.

    I think there is a lot of value in this. We are hoping with Version 3’s api people would develop third party desktop applications to help you with type of things. So the application would track if you are still working on computer and after x minutes of inactivity can just turn time off. I will add this in our list of things to consider for improving the time application. Thank you.

  9. User generated report

    Is there anyway we could generate report end of the month?
    For eg: How much work emp:"A" has done is so and so month compare to emp:"B"

  10. Milestone Active button

    It would be great if assigned co-workers can see that someone is already working on a milestone. Thus preventing two people starting the same milestone.

    Most Milestones in our firm can only be completed by one single person. With this option the milestones tab can become a place where a team of co-workers can pick up their tasks. Which they could mark as "Active".
    Added bonus : Co-workers can choose the tasks they will be working on.

    For larger teams i would imagine an "Activity overview" for group managers, where the milestones per employee are shown.

  13. Dashboard view of all projects and next milestone per project

  15. Escape " character when editing existing to-dos

    When I edit an existing to-do item with a quotation (") character in the title, your system erases all text after and including the first " mark.

  16. Add Users' Groups

    It would be nice to be able to assign a number of users to a particular group. When creating a new project or discussion it would be easy to identify the group or groups involved. An indirect outcome of this is that one email to users could invite them to a group without needed to invite them to every different discussion!

  17. Allow users to rename/give user friendly names to files they upload

    Currently my file repository is hit and miss. If I rename a file and upload with a meaningful name, it's great. If others upload, I end up with files like ss8-xyz.doc and ghjbghjsdf.pdf. Would be good to be able to change the 'Display name' for each file regardless of what the actual file is called.

  19. 'double-click' on task checkmark (new -> complete) should not generate 'in progress' notifier

    Easy fix (if it is agreed this is a problem) -- just add a 5-second timeout so that, if I have a 'new' task (that I have not marked as 'in progress') and I click the checkmark icon twice (to go immediately from 'new' to 'in progress' to 'complete'), an 'in progress' notification email should not go out (as it is unnecessary)

  20. Default action after login

    I have several projects in my list, but I use Freedcamp for 1 project mainly. I have to choose this project and then its To-Do page every time after login. I propose to add a possibility to define a default Project and its page - this would be displayed after login instead of current Dashboard page. Thx
