Development Update: Task Groups are coming soon
I’m about half-way through developing a feature that has been asked for many times. It’s quite a complicated thing to achieve on the front-end, but it’s looking good so far.
The feature will be in the form of a new add-on called Task Groups.
As the name suggests, you’ll be able to create and manage groups of tasks (back-end) which you can use to include in new projects (front-end).
To cite an example, let’s say you commonly work on web development projects. I know it can be a time consuming pain to have to manually add each common task every time you create a new project (leaving alone trying to remember what all those tasks are).
With this new add-on, you’ll only have to enter those common tasks once into a group. After that any time you create a new web development project you simply choose a Task Group and all its tasks will be automatically added to the project.
(Adding an item to a task group in the back-end.)
(Managing Task Groups in the back-end.)
(Adding a Task Group to a project on the front-end.)
This can of course be applied to any industry that has common tasks associated with projects, and there is no limit to how many task groups you can create.
