  1. 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

    • Full Google Integration

      These Apps are wonderful for those only in the Apple Ecosystem, but I and many others use Apple devices with both Apple and Google interchangeably. The Today Widget is only for Apple devices, whereas it is already possible to open Excel files and Word documents in Google Sheets and Google Docs as well as exporting to Excel and Word from Google formats. Saving and syncing to Google Drive is necessary in my opinion for the future of these apps. I use Apple and Android mobile and iMac now with both iCloud and Google Drive. On all of these, I exclusively…

      • PDF export improvements

        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

            • iPad Keyboard Shortcuts

              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,

                  • iCal

                    It would be great to be able to export to iCal & have a customisable toolbar at the top for a button to add as iCal event

                    • Resources with more units

                      It would be great to have the option to assign resources with more units i.e. 5 Workers to a task and see the right working times and costs.
                      At the moment I have to assign those 5 workers individualy to achieve this.

                        Hello,

                        Thanks for the idea.

                        This feature may help some users, the concern is that it may confuse other users.

                        And it’s not very hard to select more users by using QuickPlan

                        Best Regards,

                      • Hours / Mins as duration unit

                        Your competitors allow this. Your zoomable interface would seem to be perfect for presenting tasks which take less than 1 day.

                        • Custom field to filter

                          When having large projects, getting overview is my main issue. One way of clustering is to have the indentation (grouping in the gantt chart). Issue for me is, that depending on the situation, I want to see a different clustering. Having a custom field (better even two) available per task would give the possibility to store custom tag. Functionality to filter on these tags would give me the option to have clear overview on my project. Making these tag fields available in the export would allow me to make my custom reports on project status from a single data source.

                          • hide tasks

                            It would be interesting that the project could hide tasks, so when a task is already done it can be hidden to have cleaner.
                            Thus if later you want to see all tasks performed, samples again and would be more functional.

                              Thank you for the idea.

                              Freely Hiding tasks is a good feature for common GTD apps, for the TREE structure task management app, this feature may confuse users and there are some logic problems:
                              - The data of task group will be strange if some sub tasks be hidden
                              - Changing task outline level will behaviour problem, if we outdent or indent a task which previous task be hidden, TREE will be broken or app display incorrectly
                              - Considering task link, hiding task will also cause moving be hard to understand
                              - Also changing sequence will be a problem

                              I think the purpose of the idea is to hide the completed tasks, QuickPlan 8.0 (http://www.quickplan.xyz/documents/releasenotes/quickplanhd80/) will supports to display tasks in LIST style, when in list view, we can sort the tasks by some columns include the complete rate, this may be the feature helpful

                              Please don’t hesitate…

                                    Would have been easier to find your app if Gantt had been in the title.
                                    Great app and amazingly well done user interface!

                                      • Enhance Notes

                                        Microsoft Project has a nice note section where you can format bullets and fonts. It would be nice to enhance this section as I find that I add a lot as the project progresses and then have a way to export the notes that are connected to each task to see all the notes at once...maybe even have a notes view that shows all the notes at a glance.

                                        • Just downloaded quickplan with Ipad Pro updates

                                          Your app is one of the best apps I have ever purchased. However I don't have much need for org charts.

                                          I hope to see other productivity apps from your company from your company in the future.

                                          Thanks for the great work!
