  1. Add Linked URL Field

    That can take (for instance) JIRA task Link, SWARM review, bugzilla link, etc. Embedded in exported plan PDF, it would be massively useful for linking plans to other business systems.

        • Better synch with Weekly Calender/Outlook

          Hi,
          I noticed that you can export actions to my calender. However you shall manually activate this for each activity. And it is not automatically synchronized. You can re-export, but then you end up with a new acitivity and have to delete the old, otherwise you have two entries in your calender.

          My wish is that I can select actions in QuickPlan which will be automatically synch with my calender.

          Regards Ulf

            • excel mac

              On my iPad I can export to Excel. On Mac I have a CSV option. The excel export would be very welcome at Mac OS version of QuickPlan.

              • Immutable start/end for tasks or milestones

                It would be great to have the ability for a task or milestone to have date properties that can’t be changed. Example is if I put a release date that we have to move toward, we would rather change the scope than the date. Can this be done if not, let’s add it as a feature.

                    Hello,

                    Thanks the idea – this is about team collaboration.

                    A PROJECT is a FILE – QuickPlan stores a project as a .qpp file.

                    To do team collaboration:
                    - We can develop a team collaboration system for QuickPlan only. And we will have to charge the users like 1? USD per user per months, and the security project data created by the users will be saved on our server … – this is another business. Not suitable for the enterprise users.
                    - Or. There are many existing collaboration platforms for team collaboration based on file sync. Like MS Sharepoint server for enterprise; or the common cloud storage service for example Dropbox for team, Google Drive to do basic file based team collaboration. The suggested solution is to use QuickPlan for macOS, and to sync .qpp files with your team members, with access controlling provided by the platforms of Dropbox, …

                  • Publish it in web app while user will use it from a browser and set monthly fee per user

                    I love quickplan. I searched a lot before i chose it. I own a 20 people company and i need to let 3 persons work on this as we do currently with ourgoogle spreadsheets. If you make it work in windows/android or make a web version where user will be able to use it from his browser it would be perfect and companies could afford a low monthly fee fir using it

                      QuickPlan is not the online service.
                      - QuickPlan is focusing to be the MOST EFFICIENT project planning app, to be simple and easy for use.
                      - Project data are sensitive and owned by the users, QuickPlan does not store the user’s data on our server for SECURITY REASON

                    • Multi platform functioning

                      Is there any plans for a Windows app to be available as well as an android app? I love this app but would love to use at my desktop computer and than sync to my android phone.

                            Hello,

                            Thanks for the idea.

                            QuickPlan for iOS supports to import from iOS contact (QuickPlan for macOS supports to drag for macOS contact into QuickPlan). can you try this way to add project member.

                            The iOS contact should support to input rapidly (as it’s designed for contacts).

                            Best Regards,

                            Philip

                          • Resource assignment view

                            Dear Team,
                            I'm not able to see the resource assignment view; how is it possible to check if a resource is available and when?

                            It would be useful also to have a resource assignment view not only for a single project but for more projects.

                            Also the possibility to filter for the contents of a column would be nice.

                            The look&feel and usability is great!

                            Best regards
                            Marco

                                Thanks for an outstandig planning app!
                                We use the pdf export quite often. When exporting the timeline to a A3 sheet, most of the time the app divides the timeline into two sheets. Not a real problem but I prefer my timelines on one sheet. To do that I select an A2 sheet instead of an A3 sheet. This solves the issue most of the times.
                                There's one issue though: When printing the timeline on a A3, text is projected with a (for example) 12 p fontsize. This fontsize does not have to increase when printing on a A2. The…

                                  Hello,

                                  Thanks for the ideas.

                                  The nature of the project schedule size may be very large, this will be a very touch case sometimes if we want to print it on a small paper.

                                  (It is NOT like most of other apps, like drawing apps, the drawing area is limited, so the nature of the result size is limited)

                                  Even a human sometimes has no way to make it (a very big size of project schedule, print on a small paper, to keep all the content be clear and visible).

                                  Like your case, it is a problem for some users as the text on the paper is not clear (as the printer need to zoom it). But it may not be a problem if printing it using a printer with very high DPI

                                  An option to change the text font sometimes work well – we will test it.

                                  Another issue…

                                • Add Actual Start and actual finish columns

                                  Against the task, currently we have start and finish columns. I assume that these are planned columns. To measure our actual work against plan, if you add actual start and actual finish columns that will be really beneficial to measure project schedule performance.
                                  Thanks.

                                    Hello,

                                    Thanks the idea.

                                    My understanding is to add two columns to record start and finish date of the “baseline”.

                                    The active start and finish date should be the actual start and finish date. (the project schedule should reflect the reality)

                                    Yes, this is the feature we want – time needed.

                                    Best Regards,

                                  • Great Job

                                    The simplicity and flexibility of this app has really improved my planning workflow. Thank you for the hard work.

                                    Syncing between devices is my only real frustration, but I understand this is probably the apple iCloud side.

                                      Hello,

                                      Thanks the feedback.

                                      iCloud Drive sync operations can be very simple:

                                      - On macOS, in the QuickPlan iCloud Drive folder, open the .qpp file by QuickPlan for macOS app, edit and save
                                      - After seconds/minutes/… (speed is up to iOS, network, macOS …), open the file on the iOS device via QuickPlan for iPad/iPhone

                                      The user manual of iCloud Drive sync at http://www.quickplan.xyz/documents/quickplan-for-ios/user-manual/project-sync-via-icloud-drive/ may emphasize the risk more.

                                      Best Regards,

                                      Philip

                                      This app looks wonderful on an iPad, however, it could be so much more efficient if it supported keyboard shortcuts. There are some very basic shortcuts that would substantially improve the app. For example, "delete" to delete a task, arrow keys to move between tasks, etc. Even a few basic ones to start would be very helpful!

                                      • Critical Path Analysis

                                        There needs to be a Critical Path Analysis function. This is essential and I am a little disappointed that it doesn't already exist.

                                        Every project has a critical path and it needs to shown on the chart.

                                        • facility to set text colour

                                          Fantastic planning tool but with a presentation issue.
                                          The ability to optionally set the default text colour to black to override situations when white text is the default on some task bars.
                                          White text doesn't make for easy readability.

                                            Thanks the idea.

                                            I suppose that you display the schedule via project, as the color limitation of the project, it’s not easy to ready the text on Gantt chart.

                                            I’d like that the users will NOT to care about this, the app will to change the text color if needed. Would you please help to let me know when the white text is not easy to read (what’s the background)?

                                            Thanks,
