Tasks - Enhancement Requests

A couple of additional things which would be helpful in the Tasks section. This list is in roughly some kind of prioritised order of desire.

  • A way to see (as a Brewery Admin) a way to view All Tasks in one click. Currently, the Admin needs to select each individual user to see their Tasks. There’s no way to have a single global view of all open tasks, regardless of whom they are assigned to (work around is to assign everything to everyone, which isn’t great).
  • Task categories or tags. It’d be great if tasks could be tagged or categorised. Then a filter available to filter the view by category/tag. Eg. a tag for “Ingredients” and then one could filter for only tasks which involve purchasing or managing ingredients.
  • Something like “milestones” in GitHub/GitLab. This could be assigning tasks to a Batch. For example, first a new Batch is created. Then tasks are created and assigned to that Batch. Then there is a filter view to see the status of all tasks assigned to that Batch. This feature would be handy to see the percentage status of all tasks required for a batch. E.g. buying ingredients, buying cleaning materials, chasing the return of kegs etc
  • A kanban board style view. Pretty self explanatory. See GitHub/GitLab and many other projects for examples. Columns could be based upon tags/categories. Swimlanes would be nice, but could be a further, future update.
  • A task start date, this could then also show a task as covering multiple days in the calendar view
  • An assignment of priority
  • An assignment of hours of effort
  • A Gantt view

Hi Phill,

Thanks for the suggestions here on how to improve the Tasks section. I’ll discuss this with the team and keep you updated with any progress.

Thanks,

Matt
