  1. Create task-level and note-level permission settings for non-user and interested party resources

    How do you separate communication between a project team and the client? The ability to strike a balance between transparency and candid communication would make the resources features truly useful. Otherwise, it seems the daily report is only truly functional for EITHER inter-company OR client relationship communication. Thanks!

  2. Link Roadmap to Exchange Calendar

    I would like a way to allocate resources based on data from a Microsoft Exchange server. For example, if I have a meeting scheduled in Outlook for 4 hours today, can Roadmap change my availability? If possible, can Roadmap events be set to reminders in OUtlook as well?

  4. Add a preference to the Gantt Chart Display Preferences to Expand All

    We want to be able to see all active milestones and events under each project so they show when we download the gantt chart to pdf. Currently, we have to expand each project, one project at a time. It would be great to be able to either set a display preference that the projects always show in expanded view, or to be able to have a toggle button to toggle them all expanded or not near the timeframe and filter.

  5. iOS app for traveling PMs

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

  6. Allow templates to have attachments

    Basecamp just recently launched templates for their projects that allows for keeping the attachments. When we create a template there are times we would like to keep an common attachment such as a blank form that is always used with that project type.

  10. 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.

  11. Add Agile Themes and, eventually, lower level agile elements.

    (1) Themes are a great way to categorize projects by business value -- not necessarily by categorizing them into similar activity groups like Project Groups.

    (2) Adding Kanban boards would be another next step (longer term) -- very suitable for organizing flowing task-oriented departments without going too far into agile sprints (which are scrum based).

    (3) Eventually add scrum, sprints, etc so one tool can handle everything. Kinda like RallyDev(.com) and Hansoft(.com), but Roadmap is much easier to use and much more effective at the Roadmap level (of course).

  12. Add the ability to color code to-do lists and milestones inside the work items list

    Right now its quite hard to identify different items if we have lots of to-dos and milestones. It's all white and gray and it's even hard to spot where the to-dos for one milestone starts and ends.

  13. Change Last Login to Last Activity

    Last Login could have been weeks ago and means very little, but last activity could have high value. I'd like to know when the last time a project manager or account manager has had activity.

    This will be included with the new time tracking and Project 360 usability enhancements

  14. Make it harder to make changes

    Currently, I find it too easy to make changes to project timelines in Gantt view by accidentally moving a milestone, for example. A pop-up window asking you to confirm the change would be most welcome for such cases. In case some users wouldn't want this extra step in Gantt view, they could easily disable it in the settings.

  16. Supporting Multiple Basecamp Tokens (per user)

    Currently Roadmap only allows one Basecamp token to communicate between Roadmap and Basecamp. The Basecamp token determines the user information and limits multiple Roadmap users from fully integrating with Basecamp (i.e. all posts are assigned to the use with the Basecamp token). This can cause users to miss email notifications from Basecamp.

    I'd like to suggest that you support multiple Basecamp tokens per account so that the user information is accurate between Roadmap and Basecamp.

  17. For "Manual" Percent Complete, allow people to type-in a value instead of the incredibly slow process of holding down the up/down buttons.

    (1) Allow people to type-in a value. The up/down arrow keys are simply way to slow, and even if they were faster, it is still silly to force people to use them,
    (2) When using the up.down arrow buttons, the down-arrow should allow you to cycle backward past 0 and start at 100% and then go down. So if you want to specify e.g. 90%, you don't have to wait for it to slowly cycle from 0 all the way to 90.

    FYI:
    "Manual" percent complete is useful for preliminary roadmaps where you walk into an environment and need to…

  18. Horizontal scroll in Gantt chart view

    It could be very helpful implement horizontal scroll in gantt chart view instead than click on side bars. So with trackpad (like in Mac laptop) you can scroll left and right with two fingers.

    Thanks, Luca.

  19. Enhanced security groups and permissions

    I have a large number of IT teams and I want to be able to have each team manage their own environment individually (specifically add their own resources as they see fit) but with the ability to view other teams projects as part of improving cross team communications.

    From what I can tell only account admins have the right to add resources but if I give other team managers, admin access they are then able to have full access to all projects (including projects outside their team) which is not appropriate. It is also too easy to accidently change settings…

  20. Configurable option to protect from assigning tasks over 100% of the capacity of the resources

    Currently, the process of matching the projects with the availability of the resources is awkward and not intuitive. For instance, if a resource has 8h working hours available per day, and has already 4h of tasks for day D, adding a new task of 6h on day D should open a window asking something like "Amount of hours exceeds daily capacity by 2h. What do you want to do? Opt 1: Proceed, Opt 2: allocate remaining hours on next available days, Opt 3: Cancel"
