  1. Milestone Colours

    Enable individual milestones to colourise dependent on their health i.e. 'on schedule', 'at risk' etc. Alternatively enable them to be manually coloured in to denote things such as the party/ person responsible etc.
    Also fill them in according to percentage complete just like the overall project bar.

  2. Availability

    All of the availability projections seem to assume that if two milestones have the same start and end date a resource will be working 100% on both of them at the same time, e.g. 16 hour days?
    In our production environment it is common to task switch rather than sequence tasks precisely one after the other.
    Because of this the availability projections are useless unless there is a way to tell the system to just mark someone as 100% busy if they have a task or more than one task going on during that day rather than 200% busy etc. …

  3. Make the app faster

    Love the app (particularly love the project summary) but find overall that the application is very slow to refresh a screen.

  4. keep the calendar visible when scrolling in the gantt chart

    keep the calendar timeline visible in Gantt view so when you scroll down it's easier to see what dated you're working in.

  5. Allowing time selections when adding an event

    So that adding a company event on a specific day doesn't remove the ability to select that day for to-do due dates (unless I'm missing something)

    Bill King responded

    Events were originally designed to mirror how Basecamp users them.

    Events are just like milestones except you cannot assign a resource, estimate effort, or log actual effort. Thus, you could use a milestone as a workaround.

    That said, your point is well taken. Perhaps we provide the option to create an event or a meeting, the latter of which allows you to assign resources and time against it.

    Thanks!

  6. individual 'complete' function in a milestone for individual resources

    individual resources in a milestone should be able to mark their work as completed without mark the whole mile stone as completed.

    Wen i assign multiple resources (for example a designer and a UX) to work together on one mile stone, one resource might be done with his work earlier than the other.

    However, if one resource ticks the task in his 'work items' list as completed, it automatically drops out of the work item list of the other resource.

    it would be great, if you could build a functionality, that enables individual resources to tick their part as completed…

  8. Include functionality to add Resource field to Project View

    Currently there are limitations with the field/column selection for both projects and work items. It would be ideal to be able to select all fields in either of these views. e.g. Work Items should include the project description and Projects should include the assigned resource.

  9. 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.

  10. allow adding subcontractors

    When subcontractors are hired to work on projects, we need to be able to assign them to the tasks for our budget perspective, but we don't want these individuals to show up on all of our summary dashboards and calendars. They are not our resources.

    So, when "add resources" you can pick a name or a company. If we could pick a name and check a box that says "subcontractor" and then also name a company, that would be fantastic.

    These individuals would easily be excluded (via "include/exclude" subcontractor logic) from basic counts of resources and would not show up…

  11. Add percent completed status for individual work list

    It would be nice for RM to be able to report back on individual work lists as opposed to an overall project health. It would be more useful for me to be able to identify that work list 1 is 35% complete and work list 2 is 74% complete than it would be for me to know an aggregate of the 2 combined.

  13. Create a status board view to display a rotating view of project overviews for displaying on a large display

    I really like the project view but I'd like to be able to setup a computer to a large TV by my product management team where it cycles through all projects and their associated status.
    It would be really slick if it started by showing the dashboard, highlighted a project, then showed the project detail page and gannt chart. Waited a few seconds (10) then faded back to the dashboard and highlighted the next project.

    As of right now I have to take screenshots of each project and put that in a powerpoint presentation.

  14. Merge new Basecamp resources with existing RoadMap resources if the email address is the same.

    Currently, Roadmap will create a new resource, which one then has to manually delete.

  15. Gantt chart enhancement

    Why is the current day right in the middle? Seems like a lot of wasted space with all the past days off to the left. Doesn't let you look forward in time without changing the timeframe view. You should consider moving it further to the left.

    Is it possible to have a private chat/discussion on the project, so that the clients dont see it? We're having problems with clients seeing things they shouldn't see as far as the discussion. It would be nice if there was an option for a chat box just for the PM to the designers. We dont want our clients seeing everything.

  17. Add todos within Gmail / Google Apps

    We often get clients updating us via email and as a result have to copy and paste any required todos into Basecamp or Roadmap, it would be much better to have an extension that worked within Gmail to add todos in-line.

    Collabspot do this really well for Highrise to see a good example of how it could work.

  18. Specify Color manually but don't necessarily give up the defaults.

    (1) For Project Groups -- allow us to specify color (currently don't see this ability at the Group level).
    (2) For Projects -- currently we are forced to turn off all the default colors in order to allow us to manually specify color. Instead, have option to allow defaults, but allow user to override.
    (3) For %Complete Progress Bar inside Projects and Gantt -- allow user to specify the progress color, e.g., black foreground progress against green background activity bar. Currently, it automatically chooses dark green on lighter green -- not much contrast (even worse if %complete is near edge,…
