See the Task Rocket 4 task status interface in action
As mentioned in the previous post, Task Rocket 4 will have the ability to assign a status to any task. This means any task can be Incomplete, Complete, In progress or On hold.
After a few passes at the UX for this, I’ve settled on what will likely be the final version that makes it into TR4. I doubt it will change much if at all, but the mobile UX will slightly differ to allow for bigger tap targets and presentation that makes more sense on small screens.
The default icon state of a task represents its current status, and on hover will reveal the other available statuses. So if a task is currently On hold, its status can be changed to In progress, Complete or Incomplete. If a task is In progress, its status can be changed to On hold, Complete or Incomplete. You get the idea.
The video below demonstrates. As always feedback is welcome and encouraged.
