New! Task Progress View!

This Monday we are releasing a productivity update to the Project Details page. We have created a new view called ‘Progress’ just above the Task list on a project.

This will allow you to see easily at a glance the progress of your tasks, time spent, time remaining and overdue. Having this more visual will help you have a better overview on the project.

Permissions Note:
At this stage, this view is restricted to only Superusers or Project Managers as it requires the viewing of ALL tasks on a project for accuracy.

Feel welcome to send feedback when you’ve had a play!

    I applaud productivity updates like this.
    However, based on the screenshot, it seems to be a duplication of the numbers already shown (hours allocated vs spent).
    e.g. Time Alloc 8 hours Time Spent 4 hours = 50%. The bar repeats what the numbers already say.
    This kind of % complete info would be even more useful on the Projects page so we can see total progress on a project (e.g. one bar for total hours alloc/spent for all tasks and another bar for proportion of tasks completed e.g. 10% for 10/100 tasks completed).
    That would provide a useful, high level, at-a-glance summary at project level

      Thanks for feedback. There’s a few reasons we haven’t gone down that path yet but we’re also just gathering a little more customer feedback as well. Let’s get the PD page sorted first them we’ll pull back to the Projects page.

        OK. Keep up the good work.

        It’s great to see PWF being actively developed. That’s one of the reasons why we use it.

    I agree totally with John’s comments, the new task progress is great but displayed as a % would be more useful and a % complete of overall project even better. When I am sitting in a meeting looking at 50 different projects I want to be able to quickly see how far along each project is compared to a week or a month ago.
    Great progress however! Keep it up.
