    Tasks features

    Steve.Vereecke

      Hi,

       

      The task functionality in Projects on SBS 3.0.1 is very limited in functionality.

       

      Some basic functionality that we would like to see added is:

      - Author name (we cannot see who created a task in the task list or task detail, only to who it has been assigned. When using the search box the author is visible, but not when clicking on the result)

      - Tag could for tasks, this allows us to filer certain tasks

      - Project calendar view: There seems to be a bug in how tasks are shown, should simply show the nr of tasks per day

      - When exporting tasks, the description is not included

          For my organization, I want to support everything you're saying here. We're currently trying to figure out how to make task templates, export them, then reimport them when needed. Description is key for this, this is where the bulk of the template would reside.

           

          There's a Recurring tasks?, which would address this.

           

          We'd also like to be able to assign a task to several people, and have that action spawn multiple individual tasks for those several people.

            Hi Steve,

             

            Thanks for the feedback, comments are inline below.

            - Author name (we cannot see who created a task in the task list or task detail, only to who it has been assigned. When using the search box the author is visible, but not when clicking on the result)

            This request is filed as CS-14050.

            - Tag could for tasks, this allows us to filer certain tasks

            You should be able to find this in Jive SBS 3.0 (unless I am misunderstanding what you would like). In any Project or Profile > Your Stuff > Tasks you'll see a tag cloud for tasks. Clicking on any one of those tags will bring up a list of items that have that tag, and you can filter that list to only show tasks if you would like.

            - Project calendar view: There seems to be a bug in how tasks are shown, should simply show the nr of tasks per day

            That looks like a bug. Filed as CS-14051.

            - When exporting tasks, the description is not included

            This request is fied as CS-14053.
