    Hi

    We are currently testing freedcamp because we are unhappy with basecamp. We looked at several tools and freedcamp made a real good impression, because it is simple and easy to use.

    There is just one thing, which is major drawback, and this is the limitration of status-values. Igor proposes another approach, but this is a kind of workaround, because logically a task (to-do) has a status. If one starts to manage status with categories, it will turn out complicated. Furthermore reporting is also much easier.

    What is the typcial scenario? Project manager assigns tasks to another team member. The team member completes the task, but now a review and testing is needed. Only when this step is succesful, then the task is completed.

    So, we would strongly vote for having more status values. The perfect solution would be, that the the admin could define the values himself, but I guess this needs some more programm logic and time. The most easy solution would be when you just offer a few more status such as for example:
    - Implementation Done
    - Testing in progress
    - Tested
    - Review in progress

    Users who do not need it, simply can ignore it. And I guess you have implemented this in a few minutes by simply adding some values.
