  1. Use label color for card background

    It would provide a better user experience if a card background color is set to its label color.

    • Change Plan Color

      The preview color--or the color of the plan box-should be customizable. This would allow you to select a better color, and to color code your individual plans as relating to a larger project.

      • Links in comments need to be clickable

        When you comment a link, it is clickable in the e-mail you get but not on the card when you open it, so you need to select the text, copy and paste in the address dar so you can go to that link!

          • Adding swim lanes for multiple plans

            The ability to view plans in a "Swim Lane" format would be good

            • Demote tasks to sub-tasks

              At present, we can promote a checklist item to a task, but it can't be done the other way around. If a brainstorming session comes up with a lot of tasks that need to be aggregated under a single task with one owner, it would be very useful to not have to re-enter all of those tasks as checklist items. Also, PROPER SUB-TASKS *and* checklists, please!

                • Manage tasks by work period (sprint)

                  As a user, I want to be able to manage tasks by work periods (e.g. Period 5 being the first two weeks of March) so that I can focus on those currently on each team member's plate, not on the complete list of tasks for the overall plan which may last many months. Such a work period is often called a "Sprint" within the software development community, and the view of such tasks is called a "Scrum Board", but this capability is not software development specific.

                  It may be suggested that such a view can be created by filtering tasks…

                    • Auto Assign to creator if not assigned / inherit from Stack owner

                      Our stacks are owned by people. Creation of a new task in the stack should default to being owned by that person until changed.

                        • personal plans

                          I would be really useful to be able to create not just work (group plans) but also personal plans. Most of us work for a significant part of the day, allowing us to create our personal plans (which do not create email addresses, linked to ourselves only and each person could have a plan of the same name i.e. lunchtime shopping list). There should be a global admin ability to allow or block 'personal plans' as some organisations may be required not to allow this.

                            • COMMENTS: Select, copy+paste, edit, delete

                              I'd like to be able to select and copy + paste a comment or fragments of it elsewhere. I don't mean to copy the comment from a task to another, although it may be a good improvement too. It's just a simple copy and paste to an email, a word file, or anything...
                              Also, edit and delete a comment would be really helpful.
                              Thank you!

                              • Filter My Tasks to enable strategic views

                                As an individual is part of numerous projects their task list will grow and become unmanageable. If a task is set to be started in the future it should be removed from the My Tasks view or give the ability to create filtered views.

                                The goal is to only give an individual the view into those tasks that are being worked on at the current time, Today. All other tasks will be out of site until the start time is reached or a pre-defined field such as 3 weeks before deadline.

                                  • permissions

                                    It would be great if we could put an entire team into a plan, but some team members can only add something to a single bucket list and the others have read-only permissions. Is this possible? Here I think very strongly of agencies that work with development and concept and designers. One could create a kind of Scrum process where customer advisors can create tasks and afterwards the work can be carried out by the individual departments. Furthermore, there should then be a bucket list such as verification, here the customer advisor can comment again, upload images .... to list…
