  1. A bug: Task that shall be completed today is displayed as late

    If you create a task that shall be completed today, the chart "Members" displays this task as LATE. On the other hand, the chart "Status", displays this task as IN PROGRESS.

    In case you have a lot of 1 day tasks for today, this may a bit annoying.

    Also, I would appreciate if we could specify start and end of task with hour accuracy (e.g. from 2017/09/19 - 10:00 to 2017/09/19 - 14:00)

    Thank you very much.

  3. New Charts are Difficult to Present (Who thought gray bars on white could be visible??)

    The new charts are very difficult to read, and do not present well. 'Tasks Not Started' are a light gray bar on white background. Not good. The color bars in the previous version were bright and large bars were used. Allow users to customize status colors for charts. Until then, bring back something other than gray-on-white which are nearly impossible to see.
    Chart related but not to this: Show bars on charts for COMPLETED tasks (not just blank space). Mgrs and PMs want to see positive completion as well! Not everyone does agile with a mindset of what's solely on…

  4. Ability to view tasks assigned to members

    A chart which shows all open, in progress and completed tasks for all plans not just one at a time. This allows a manager to quickly be able to see what tasks are still needing done.

  7. Daily tasks view

    There used to be a view that showed the tasks listed by due date so the tasks for today could be prioritised. This view was only within a single plan. It would be great if a) that view could come back (Because it's gone in the new preview) and b) if you could have a rollup view of the tasks prioritised by due date for all plans.

    It would be nice to be able to create views to look at items the way that works best for us.

    Could be very useful if it is available a new functionality that provide the possibility to extract a resume about activities in order to show to customer the project progress.

  17. Neglected to initiate application's card due to Facebook down? Dial help number.

    In the event that you run over a circumstance in which you neglect to actuate the card because of Facebook down, at that point you can utilize the assistance that is given by the client care by dialing the tech number and looking for some investigating arrangements or you can utilize the help that is given by YouTube in the wake of observing some tech videos.

  18. terminated tasks

    Consider 'Terminated' tasks in Graphs to motivate the teams with showing all the job done ! Up to now, i never use Terminated step, i move all these task in a bucket "Terminated" to see them yet.

  19. Filter Charts view by Status so we can filter out completed tasks

    Our completed tasks are overrunning the Chart view so now our remaining active tasks cannot be seen (too small). Add 'Status' to the filter option so that we can filter out completed tasks and see active tasks clearly. Our current workaround is to put completed tasks into a "completed" bucket and filter out that bucket, which adds an extra unneeded step.

  20. I think it would be very beneficial to add some background data to basic filters such as Created by, Created on, and Cycle times.

    I think it would be very beneficial to add some background data to basic filters such as Created by, Created on, and Cycle times. Every company is looking to Lean out and see bottlenecks, and knowing who is creating items, and the processing time between steps would be a logical filter for many companies using the product. The current filters a little to high level.
