  1. Show the Basecamp comments on To Do items in Roadmap. Allow comments on to do items in Roadmap.

    In Basecamp, you can put comments on a to-do item. I would like to be able to see those comments in Roadmap as well as to be able to add additional comments if needed.

      We are evaluating the best way to incorporate 3rd party collaboration — e.g. comments in Basecamp and other (future) integrations — in Roadmap. We do not want to reinvent the collaboration already provided by other apps.

        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,
        Bill

      • Add a traditional calendar view

        My team would love to see projects and milestones in a traditional calendar view, as well as the gantt and list views.

          • 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.

            • "CLASSIC MODE" BUTTON

              The new version does not have the same capabilities as the old version and we can no longer do what we need to do when using roadmap. the old version of roadmap worked perfectly with the drop down "expanded" view that allowed us to check off mile stones, change dates, and add notes . Is it possible to add a "classic view" button to switch over to the old interface?
              If this is not possible atleast make the updated interface able to do the same things as the old one, it makes no sense to take away capabilities in an…

              • Simultaneous Calendar/Resource/Dashboard View

                Today I had to reschedule a long list of To Dos and Milestones due to illness in the office. I like using the Dashboard view for this as it allows me to slide against dates.

                However, I had to keep checking the effect this would have on resourcing by selecting the tab separately.

                Can this be a split screen?

                At the same time, it would be great to have a floating calendar attached to the GANTT so that I could see my changes against the calendar. This is just a personal preference.

                Thanks

                  • Don't show grouped field data in the regular list.

                    If you're grouping by a field (for example project name on the work items page) the project name is shown in the group area and can be sorted there. Remove this field from the grid since it's already shown.

                      Hi Jason,

                      Will have to check and see if the pivot column can be removed from view. We use a 3rd party component that, while very flexible, may not support this.

                      In the meantime, a possible workaround is to move the pivot column to the right-most column in the view, thus, it’s no longer taking up visible space. Not sure if that’s helpful or not.

                      Best,
                      Bill

                      Project resources would be able to view email communication timeline - eliminates redundancy between communicating within Roadmap and communicating through email. See Nutshell CRM for a good example. Thanks!

                      • 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?

                          • add a new piece of functionality to the time/date dependencies

                            Hey folks. We love Base Camp and Road Map! One thing that I think would add a lot of value to our experience is to change how the reports treat 'time' versus 'date' dependence on a project. For instance, if a project is 'date' dependent, and we run past that deadline, then the report accurately reports that. However, if we have a project that is based on 'time' then it's definition of success depends not on a due date, but on total work hours. Therefore, if we put a 'time' dependent project on hold, Road Map should give us some…

                              Thanks, Shawn. That’s a great suggestion. Note, the Schedule Audit feature tracks project drift from the original due date. Thus, the logical place to account for the “hall pass” is in Schedule Audit, however it’s only available to Pro subscription plans.

                              Would very much appreciate your ideas on how to display this in Roadmap, in addition to maintaining a dialogue as we work to find the best way to accommodate.

                              Best,
                              Bill

                            • Create a Scope Audit besides Schedulle Audit

                              As part of our PM process we have to keep track on changes to scope to the project (milestones added, deleted, or modified). A the moment we have to keep track of this separately in order to be able to report on scope changes and improve our planning for next time. A Scope Audit that could signal to us what have been the changes to the milestones from the beginning of the project would greatly improve our Roadmap experience.

                              • 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!

                                  • Being able to keep finished work-items in their original place instead of automatically transferred to the bottom of the list.

                                    I'm using the Project 360 view to report status to my customer. When doing this now all finished workitems are placed at the bottom of the milestone to-do list. I want to be able to keep them in their original place to keep the timeline transparant.

                                        It would be nice to be able to send an automatic email to the team working on a project when an attachment has been added to the job.

                                        • add an output size of 11x17 to the download gantt beta

                                          It would be wonderful to be able to output to 11x17.
