  3. Translate to others languages

    Hi,

    I understand English, but I think it would be fine if the app offers to you select a different language. In my case Spanish.

    I Think I could help you with that language.

    Bye!.

    We are trying to enhance the English now. And to keep the price of the app low (you see QuickPlan is super cheap than any other the same kind, the price is less than 1/5 of the apps with at/above an acceptable level of quality), other languages support is in the future.

    Your help with the language (English and others) will be super helpful.

  4. 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.

    A complicated topic, would you please help to check following two articles:

    - The best practices about task duration
    https://quickplan.app/documents/best-practices/task-duration

    - Why choose project schedule app
    https://goplan.app/questions/general/project-schedule
    =====

    We have just released another app which is for Roadmap planning. I’d like to suggest to use the Roadmap app for your short-term activity schedule!

    Using Roadmap app, we have created an example for the agenda of WWDC (Apple Worldwide Developers Conference) 2018, please check out the details at https://roadmapgo.com/documents/examples.

    Download the Roadmap apps at https://roadmapgo.com/getapps

    (Roadmap app is very flexible, although it’s designed for the product/business roadmap planning, you will find it’s very flexible for other types of plan)


    Please pay attention:
    - Roadmap is NOT another version of QuickPlan. Check out the details at https://roadmapgo.com/info/to-quickplan-users
    - We can use Roadmap app for other purpose like the agenda planning, but Roadmap is designed for roadmap planning which is not for…

  5. 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.

  6. Select date range for (pdf) export

    I export to PDF for printing. Would be helpful to export only a portion of the plan, based on date range. thanks, Lander

  8. Linking of item groups

    It would really help to link groups together- it is easier to link last task of one group with first task of the other to maintain group order

  9. Adding Links to Goodreader, iThoughts, Internet, etc.

    I would love to add links:
    - Internetlinks
    - Links to other apps (to documents, etc.: Apps like for example Goodreader and ithoughts are supporting these iPad internal links)

    So I can link to doucuments and internetpages for aditional documents, partnerlinks

    Thank you

    Andreas

  10. Alerts

    Audible reminders for tasks would be a great help for follow up. Reminder like '# days before' or so.

  11. 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…

  12. 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

  13. Browser support

    Support for web would be wonderful and be able to open and edit projects from any browser (or just Firefox and Chrome). It would require a login or something.

  14. Locking single Tasks

    Locking single Task in a project would be helpful to set fixed periods within the planning e.g. vacation periods.

    Thank you for the idea.

    Locking specific tasks will cause logic problems.

    - If one task in a group is locked, when move task group (change group task start date), logic issue
    - If tasks are linked, but one is locked, when move predecessor task, logic issue
    - If to change the start date of the whole project, what will happen

    The project schedule is NOT todo tasks (https://goplan.app/questions/general/project-schedule). Project schedule should guide the team how to execute (when, who, depends, cost …), AND the project schedule should reflect the reality of the project, that means if the tasks schedule to be completed before today, but not completed before today, the project schedule should be rescheduled, that means all the tasks planned to be completed before today should be completed. There is no need to lock task like a TODO app.

    Or there is something hidden which caused…

    Please select the “Auto” page size when exporting to PDF file. If the page size is fix, the app has to zoom the chart (adjust timeline scale) to fill the page.

  16. Repeating tasks

    Identical Tasks wich come back on different weeks / months. In this version you need to create each task in a different taskbar. IT would-be an amazing improvement for maintenace and facility management.

    QuickPlan shows one row in the outline (list) panel and the chart panel. Multiple tasks in one taskbar will cause the information in the outline row to be in a mess (for example to show the %comp, or cost …)

    We’d like to suggest if you can organize the repeated tasks in a sub-project, so it can just show as one task in the major project.

    ==
    If you need an app for the high-level plans such as product/business roadmap, would you please help to check the new app at https://roadmapgo.com

  17. 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.

    QuickPlan now includes two URL task fields, we can use it to link to a file on the Web (or other app if possible)

    We don’t suggest to include (attach) more content in a project file – let’s make the project schedule focus on project scheduling, and leave the documentation work in the documents (like requirements in requirement documents)

  18. Shade weekend days

    It would be great to have weekends shaded when viewing the gantt at the week level - it would make it very easy to visually determine how long tasks are and to mentally group them into weekly batches. Also include the shading in the PDF and XLS export files.

    I prefer this to removing weekends as it maintains duration scale - actual duration is correctly reflected with the gaps for weekends.

  19. 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.

    The major purpose of a task link is for rescheduling.
    - If we are working on the initial schedule, I don’t suggest to add task link before finalize
    - If we are working on rescheduling, if we need to block the link, that means the task link is not useful (or not be created correctly)

    Also blocking a task will cause the users confused by themselves:
    - When moving a task group, if one sub task be blocked, the behavior will confuse the user
    - Also similar when change the project start date
    - Also this topic is about task link

  20. Redo button

    Undo button is helpful — undo/redo would be even better!
