  1. Upload Text File for Checklist / Feature Request

    It would be nice to be able to upload a text file (some sort of simple formatted file) and bring it in as a checklist. We use a few long lists that change every so often and it would be a great asset for template tasks to be able to change/edit the lists elsewhere and upload a final version.

    • enable admins to drag tasks for others in the calendar

      At the moment I run the project and assign tasks and have admin rights, but droptask makes me open everyone else's calndar for this project in read only mode - this means I can't filter for a team member and then assign different tasks to different days for that team member.

      The work-around is to do this in google calendar, but here I cant filter by just a team member which means I have to know who owns a task just by looking at the task name, which is hard for large projects ....

      In short, if I'm an admin,…

      • Automatic update of calendar view

        If I leave Droptask open overnight the calendar view remains stuck on the previous day i.e. "today" is still "yesterday". A refresh button would seem ideal!

        • Provide Accept/Reject Buttons for Task Comment

          I'd like to see a quick way to note that I received a comment from an employee. If they responded to my question about their progress on a task with "I'll just have to do such and such. I should be done tomorrow." I don't want to add an entire comment to say, "okay." Just give me a button to accept their response or reject it with further commentary, like in google docs.

          • Lockable Dependent Tasks / Feature Request

            I think it would be nice if there was an option to have a task locked until the dependent task was completed. The arrow is a nice display if you're looking at the Canvas, but this doesn't seem to reflect in the Workspace view. It would be great if it was actually dependent, especially in a production environment where we are working on multiple tasks and can't start on another until someone finishes their part.

            • Add summary of flags and lightening’s in category

              When using the Workflow, now the only information that reveals the importance of the category/sub category is the number of tasks.

              I suggest to include a summary of the flags and lightening of the tasks included in each category (and/or sub category). Eg. If one category has Flag3 Lightening 2 would catch my attention more than Flag0 Lightening1.

              • Organize tasks by due date in Workflow

                It would be great if we could organize our tasks in the Workflow board by due date.

                • provide some ability to change the zoom level on urgency list

                  I have huge monitors, and would like to see the urgency list, which i use like a kanban board, with the ability to control zoom level on the desktop version.

                  • Please integrate Apple Watch and Siri to create tasks

                    Often enough tasks pop up when you are not in the office or can not write. Being able to dictate tasks would be very handy for all those of us that are often on the road and need organized tasks maybe even more than those that are office based. Every sales rep on the road will fancy it.

                    • Notes to the team

                      Managing tasks is an important part of moving an operation forward. Another important part of a dynamic fluid operation is the dissemination of new information. It would be nice if a feature was added whereas you could type a communication note to your team or individual that they must acknowledge reading by checking it off. This would group things to do with things to know in one convenient location and give the group manager a means to show that critical operational updates are being communicated to their team. Example below

                      • The possibility to view completed tasks for unlimited amount of time in Canvas

                        The latest Droptask update allows to view completed tasks up to 7 days after completion. I need to extend this period to "unlimited", as I usually put very useful information into the task formulas and I do not like this info to disappear from the Canvas after the task completion.

                            I think it would be great if there was an option to link the progress bar to the checklist. We use the checklist as subtasks and it would be nice to have it move on its own. Otherwise, it's mostly a useless feature.

                                  Expected hours feature for each task. Right now, I'm managing this with tags, but I'm basically looking for a finer control of your current "effort" setting that is a way for the project manager and employees to communicate on how much time a task will take, independent of the days available to complete it. In this example (Image available in google docs https://docs.google.com/document/d/1R0jwfh3hCA5E_RH-ClryvNao1fTKS2aIYUQr2nM4kIE/edit?usp=sharing), "Digitize Logo Styles" is expected to take 9 hours and the employee seems to think this is a reasonable expectation. "Sketch Logo Directions" was assigned to take 1.5 hours, but the employee has apparently put in…

                                    Create linear view of dependent tasks w/ calendar (to make start and end dates easier/faster to assign. Asana has a good, simple calendar view that I like. I almost went with them, but their app isn't as robust as yours and I love your google calendar integration. I may find that I can use google calendar as a workaround for date assignment, but several factors make it less attractive than an in-app view, primarily the inability to zoom to the timeline for the whole project. I love being able to map out my initial project processes with the bubble layout,…

                                    • Gmail integration without GSuite

                                      Currently a GSuite integration is required for gmail integration. However, especially for personal users, GSuite integration is an extra requirement and cost, often requiring creating a new gmail address. I would suggest adding gmail integration without requiring gsuite registration, as it should be possible without.

                                        I'd like to have the option to bold and underline text in the Comments tab so that certain points stand out more rather than getting lost in a sea of text.

                                        • Add ability to add website URL link

                                          There currently seems to be nowhere to add a website link to a task, except within a note but this is not active in the mobile app version.
