  1. Custom Charts for performance monitoring

    Custom Charts would allow me to replace Completed tasks with both Completed On Time and Completed Late. At a glance this would be very useful.

  2. Visualizing tasks by month

    It would be useful to have the option to visualize project status by month. You can 'group by' but you cannot visualize how you are performing month over month. The system should be able to generate the 'status' chart for each month.

    This could also be addressed by exporting to Excel, which I know a lot of users suggested.

  3. Restrict access to Charts, E.g. a member can only see stats about their tasks and not other members

    It would be good for the Manager(s)/Lead(s) to have access to stats on all members but it would be good to restrict access so that a member can only see the status of their tasks but not other members' statuses

  4. provide a timeline of when all tasks are due to be complete

    Show in the chart view the start and finish date for all tasks so you get a timeline overview of tasks and due dates.

  5. Integrate a timeline view

    Hi,
    A program time line view to integrate tasks into would provide a nice visual idea of how they fit into the overall Program framework for the assignee and the assignor.

    Thanks

  7. Please change the colors on in the charts section to be color blind friendly

    Some members of my team are color blind. Your color selection for the automatically generated charts is not good for them. It would be great to be able to click on a color blind friendly pallet option.

  8. Flexible charts to give different views

    It would be great if I could amend the view presented in charts - eg I would really like to be able to present a chart based on labels. Also, if I apply a filter by member name in Charts, the graph still presents everyone's name - only the results for those filtered, would be much better if those not included on the filter were hidden from the chart

  9. 'Completed' tasks to be featured within the bar chart

    Within 'Charts' there are 2 graphs: 'status' and 'bucket'.

    Status shows: in progress, late, not started and complete - which is super helpful.

    It would be great to have the completed tasks also shown within bucket!

  10. Report

    Please provide a feature that allows you to create / download a report that can be shared with people who are not on the planning document (or are not really tech-savy). Please allow this plan to be customizable so that you can tailor the data that the report provides.

  11. Make it possible to choose custom period when viewing charts

    When I am looking at the charts, I am able to filter the certain cards from all my buckets. Can you make it possible to view the chart, where only cards from a certain period is showing?

    If I have x amount of cards with a Due Date from 2018, I want to be able to see a chart with only 2018-dates on, so that all cards with a Due Date from 2017 and earlier do not show.

  13. Include charts view option within the "My tasks"

    When you are viewing a plan you can choose between Board view or Charts view. However, when you select "My tasks" you only get the board view and not the extra functionality of the Charts view.

  14. I want to see the percentage of progress of the plan in the chart, for example: 10/15 = 67% of progress

    I want to see the percentage of progress of the plan in the chart, for example: 10 activities completed of 15 planned = 67% of progress.
    This way we'll be able to measure effectiveness.

  15. Chart or BI query and export by Bucket labels

    When creating bucket categories, it would be nice to chart or create a BI dashboard to represent the status by the bucket labels. If there was an export by bucket labels a manual report could be generated.

  16. Order persons tasks "Charts" section

    It would be helpful to order a persons tasks, within the "Charts" section, so they are the same as the board page. The ordering, when you click on a members name, is random and doesn't align with the order on the board.

    The key is to help define priority of work Important to least important (top-to-bottom). An added benefit would be the ability to reorder (drag & drop) from the charts page which also updates the Board page.

  19. Bug? Lables not showing in Chart view

    When in the Chart view of the Plan, if you select a task from the list on the right hand side, in the expanded view of the task the Labels that have been setup for the plan are missing and instead all are displayed as 'Set Label'.
