  1. Show unit in which a task was planned and let the user choose the unit when adding work items via "add work items"

    1.
    When a work item (To-Do) is created, the standard unit will be the same as set for the project.
    When creating a task without setting the value for estimated time, the user can change the unit (hours, days, weeks, %) when changing the task later.

    Let the user set the unit of a task while creating it initially, not only when editing later

    2.
    When a task is set for a whole week but estimated time is set to 8h the users availability will show 20% for that task (40h/w)
    the task will show 8h planned.
    When a task…

    • JIRA: Populate JIRA's Logged Time Tracking field via Roadmap plug-in

      At present the Roadmap plug-in for JIRA updates the following JIRA fields for Time Tracking:
      1. Estimated;
      2. Remaining.

      However, the Logged field is not updated. This is very useful for using the JIRA dashboard for reporting. Could you use the Roadmap Log time plug-in for JIRA to populate this field?

      • Improve the Gantt UI

        You need to improve the usability of the Gantt view. It is very fiddly to move elements around. In particular, it's almost impossible to accurately pick up an element every time. I have to try multiple times before I get the right bit.

            Hi Marisa,

            First off, sorry for the hassle.

            Can you send the link or screenshot where the video continues playing? Is it the video you first see when you first log in or did it fly-out from the right-side?

            Best,

          • Do not refer to team members as as "Resources"

            In an effort to humanize my team, rather than objectify them, I'm going to start a crusade within my HR department to refer to employees as "employees", "colleagues" or "team members", rather than "resources". Has anyone at Roadmap considered this terminology and how it might affect the treatment of employees? I would much rather fill out my Gantt charts with Team Members than Resources. It would be an extensive one-word change, but I also think it might be the type of small change that has a huge impact on how people treat each other at work. Thanks.

              Hi Julia,
              Thanks for the suggestion. Our customers use Roadmap for forecasting people, places, companies and things (e.g. labs, machines). Thus explaining why we chose to use a generic term like “resources”.

              We are working on Roadmap 2.0 and will investigate the possibility of allowing users to use their own labels, or we distinguish the different types of resources.

              Best,
              BIll

            • Ability to flag a Roadblock with severity of the Issue (i.e. Red, Amber or Green).

              Ability to flag the severity of a RoadBlock (Issue) with Red, Amber or Green. This would help in being able to determine how much resource needs to be assigned in resolving the issue. A complete by date would also be helpful.

              The flag would be select able from the projects tab, so you can create a new view on issues and see the severity of them to report on. Also date stamp would be beneficial.

              • Provide a way to track Freelance Overtime Hours

                Provide a way to account for time x .5 per hour per day (8+ hours) and/or by week (40+) hours. This needs to be downloadable via excel or better yet able to be forwarded through the program for management approval.

                • Continue improving/revert back to some functions on the projects page

                  Before you made all the changes to the system I could easily filter my projects to see what was the oldest (past due) just by clicking on the header. Now I have to add a whole bunch of filters and I'm still not really able to show all the information I want to look at. I feel like i'm working in excel and its rather frustrating. It seemed much easier to use before you made the changes

                    We plan to improve the filtering with the following: 1) filter by columns that are not displayed; 2) adjust column display order in the sidebar; and 3) apply more granular filtering to Dashboard views, including widget-level filters. The exact timing of these improvements is TBD but it’s possible work will begin in June.

                    Thanks for reaching out!

                    • change the icon for actions

                      The icon for "action" on the top right of the screen is very similar to the common icon for "share" and is very confusing to me as a user. It took me ages to figure out that it is for doing things like deleting as well.

                      • make your Contains Filter a Free Form entry

                        The items to select from in All Filters are not sorted, so it makes using the filters almost useless. Especially the Contains item.

                        • Copy Time Entries to another day in the Time Tab

                          In the Time Tab if you had the option to Copy as opposed to just edit or delete individual entries, we could simply view last weeks time sheet in the time tab and copy the entries as opposed to bouncing back and forth between the Work Items Tab and the Time Tab. Another option would be to be able to filter all of the individual Work Items in the Time Tab filter area.

                              Hi Maarten,

                              That is indeed part of our product roadmap (lowercase “r”). The underlying data structure is already in place, but the UI needs to catch-up. Thanks for the suggestion!

                              Best,
                              Bill

                            • Add more Excel like capabilities where cells can take equations.

                              Allow users to create columns that can hold equations so for instance, if I have project data where I can input project value, and the input cost and generate a ratio of value to cost.

                              • Allow Roadmap to open a task directly in Basecamp

                                Currently I cannot see any way to open a task in Roadmap directly in Basecamp, which means a tedious "check task title / open BC / open project / find task / open task / etc..." process...
                                Why the plugin you developped cannot allow the opening of any tasks' direct equivalent straight into BC (ideally, using a new tab!).

                                    I and a number of others in my office use basecamp VERY frequently, and a roadmap app would be a sublime accompaniment to that.

                                    • Have a Dashboard level date toggle for dashboard widgets

                                      On the dashboard I would like to ability to toggle all of the dates at one time. For example, if I have 6 widgets with different roles and I want to forecast out 12 weeks I hould not have to adjust 6 widgets. There should be a 'parent' dashboard date to toggle to the specified time period which updates all the widgets.

                                      • Project Selection - Custom Calculations for ROI

                                        I'd like to use Roadmap to help evaluate and select project planning and budgeting for future projects by having options to calculate some ROI numbers, based on project attributes. This would let things like expected margin, planned ROIs, based on some attributes like market amount, etc to use in some custom formulas.

                                        For example, ROI could be Fixed Price Cost / Actual Cost
                                        OR: (Fixed Price - Actual Cost) / Fixed Price

                                        This way, ROI could be used to rate future project as a project selection tools, as well, to help use a consistent metric on projects as they are…

                                        • Add a null to the filter on created attributes

                                          I've set up a custom attribute that is whether a project is new or not. When it is imported into Roadmap from Basecamp I set this to yes and my team leads are to review any "yes" enter the additional custom attributes and then change the project new column to no. It would be nice to have the ability to filter this attribute by the nulls so I could easily find the imported projects. And by the way I LOVE the new features you have been pushing out.
