Custom fields by task type
Problem: Custom fields can become messy when you have different types of work (tasks) within the same lists. For example, having a bug, feature, and an epic task all in the same list would cause them all to have the same custom fields, even though I would want specific ones for each type. Other issues arise when fields that should only belong to the top-level task spread down to all its subtasks. Ask: Custom fields should have the option to be added to a custom task type itself. Whenever I create a new task of that type, it will come along with all its custom fields. Those fields will not spread to any task that is not of that type.
Statuses by task type
Problem: Often within a single list, we have different types of tasks: some represent projects, designs, and smaller action items. Each one should go through their own set of statuses, but this is currently not possible. We are forced to either use dropdown custom fields as a workaround or create large status sets to try and encompass everything, leading to confusion among people. Ask: Give the ability for statuses to be set by type. This will allow each task type to have its own status workflow.
Layouts by task type
Problem: We manage different types of work within ClickUp, and how sections are organized in ClickUp Tasks do not always work across each type. In some tasks, for example I want subtasks and fields front and center, while in others, I need to bring relationships front and center. Ask: Give the ability to have a different task layout for each task type. This would allow each type to have a layout that is better organized for that type of work.
Toggle features by task type
Problem: We handle various tasks in ClickUp, and sometimes there are unnecessary features for certain types. For instance, when tracking clients, a due date is not required. Similarly, for a list of records, a status workflow is unnecessary. Ask: Give the ability to disable certain features/ClickApps by task types.
It would be very convenient to have the ability to have subfolders. I use folders for classifying projects. For example, Projects would be a Folder name. 2019 Projects would be a Subfolder name.
Make priority and time estimation visible in Workload task list
In the task list in workload view, priority and time estimation should be visible. Currently it is extremely difficult to plan a workload, not being able to see priorities and estimated time needed to complete a task.
Formula Column Calculations
It would be very nice for the Formula columns to be able to calculate at the bottom like other columns do.
Dynamic workload and start date remap
I am writting to you because we have some features we are missing from Clickup for a long time. We tried to solve these problems but we think a little developement is needed to make this work. We use multiply assignees on most of our tasks, like a copy writter, an art director, a DTP specialist...etc. We set the start date and the due date, and we add time estimates. BUT, Clickup doesn’t recognize if an assignee haven’t strated to work on his/her task yet, and in the work load we it can not be seen, that they will need more time in the rest of the period. For example: We create a task form Monday to Friday, and we give the copy writter 5 hours to solve it. Clickup deivides the 5 hours for 5 days, so we see in the work load that he is occupied each day for one hour. Buti f he didn’t have time to work with the task nor on Monday, neither on Tuesday or Wednesday, than we should see that the originally calculated 5 hours are rearranged for the rest of the week. But we still see 1 hour for each day, although the copywritter haven’t worked ont he task yet, so we should see 2,5 hours for him ont he last 2 days of the week. All in all, our problem is that the workload doesn’t accurate, and is not changing dynamically. 2. There is a function which remaps the due date if we change the parent tasks due date. Why doesn’t it changes the start date as well? Yes it can happen that we have more time for a task, but it can happen also, that we can START working on a task later than we planed. Can you please add the strat date remap function as well?
Customize Task View Completely
Allow users to design a completely customized task view. The default task view "form" should be saved per task type and allow for overriding at the list level. Completely customizable - as an extreme example - a user should be able to set up a task view to only see a single checkbox custom field with no task name, no description, no other intrinsic or custom fields or relationships shown. The only feature of the task view form that should be required is a border with a close button. Stop assuming that the Status, Task Name, Description, Priority, or Due Date will even be present in the task view at all and let the user decide the grouping and sorting of all fields. Don't assume that because you have to do more processing to handle relationships the user expects them to be in a separate presentation from custom fields. The user should be able to pull in any property of the linked task as the value of the field, or a calculated or rollup value. The table of subtasks should be available as an option to insert at any point in the form. It should have customizable rollup columns. Or the user should be able to have a simple count of subtasks or calculated/rollup displayed if that's all they want for the use case.
