As mentioned in the previous post, wProject will right many of the wrongs from Task Rocket, including some features I was never able to implement before, and some that have often been requested too many times over the past several years.

The features I am singling out for this post are:

  • Add material costs to any project
  • Easily update tasks statuses without leaving the project view
  • Add subtasks to any task

The videos below should speak for themselves, and if you’re already a Task Rocket user you’ll no doubt understand how cool this is.

Subtasks are arguably the biggest deal. As is often with any task, there can be a number of smaller tasks that need to be accomplished within it. For example, in web development I usually have a task called Form Implementation which consists of about 10 smaller tasks. Now these smaller tasks can be added as subtasks and ticked off as I finish them.

wProject is still in development but is progressing faster than initially thought. As it stands right now, I can actually start using it to manage the remainder of the development, which is a big milestone.

A publicly accessible online demo will be available soon.

Update: I’ve just finished improving the subtasks UI. Here it is in action:

Stay tuned for more.
