  1. Tasks as Project children

    Currently, Tasks are entered as Checklist and specific tasks cannot easily be (re)assigned to a resource.
    By having Tasks as Project children which are visible in scheduler view then easily assign specific tasks to individual resources

    • Add a timer

      Hi, After some testing within our company, we currently running a number of trials, we would like to know if there are plans to add a timer to the time recording section of the system?

      This would enable team members to start a timer on a particular project and category, and have this reflected in the timesheet. This is a truer reflection of time spent than the suggested time taken directly from the scheduled tasks.

      • Select Multiple Bookings At The Same Time

        Sometimes the need to move multiple bookings all at once is required.
        Either between days, or resources.
        Select multiple entries then drag and drop.

        • Create Desktop Widget That Is Basically A Mini Timesheet Interface

          To help with Time Management it would be great to have a desktop app that a user can log into and log the tasks they are working on in their time sheet. Ideally this would live in the task bar and display the current task.

          • Copy Project

            It would be a nice addition to be able to copy a project. For organizations that perform repeat (or close to repeat) projects, the ability to establish a template then copy it to the new project would be a great time savings. Alternatively, having more control over the import multiple bookings would be a good compromise. Being able to set the Booking Category or booking colors would eliminate the need for the user to clean up the project after the import.

            • Add a phase sub-menu 'Phases' menu while booking a ressource

              We can add phases in the project menu but we can't assign a ressource on them. My suggestion is to add a new menu nested in "Schedule Project" menu called "Select Phase" that contain the project phases of the selected project. With this, we can assign resource not only on project but on project phases. If a phase is selected the booking timeline could show something like this "Project1 - Phase1" So we could easily view who is assign on project an phases.

              • Resources cost and revenue

                It would be great to be able to set cost and revenue billing rates for resources. For example when I am outsourcing my team, I need to bill clients at different rate for the team members and pay the team.

                • Total cost and effort per project phase

                  We need to use Hub Planner for defining the estimated cost and effort per phase in our proposals. Currently it is only possible to see the total effort for the project or to manually add the total project budget. I'd like the ability to link each schedule booking to a defined project phase and then see the total effort and total estimated cost (based on the hourly resource rates) for each proposed phase. We would then use this in a proposal and once a customer has approved the project, we'll report against it. Currently a project phase cannot be reported…

                  • Hours budget for phases

                    I would like to be able to add an hours budget per phase, in addition to for the entire project. This way, I can book resources to phases and see which phases are over or under budget. Currently it is only possible to see overall project budgets, but projects with many phases, some of which are very far apart (in time) are not easy to look in to.

                    • Project Cost Forecast

                      I'd like to be able to create a project forecast which is independent from the resource hourly rate. I want to be able to show how the costs will be applied over the duration of the project, monthly. There are other costs beyond resources that I want to be able to factor into the project total cost (i.e. vendor costs etc).

                      Ultimately, I would like to be able to compare my monthly forecast vs the project budget vs the actual costs. Being able to add all of these individual financial attributes gives me a more complete picture of how my…

                        • Pre-Defined List of Tasks

                          My team perform many tasks during the week and often, it is the same types of tasks. It would be ideal to be able to select from a list of tasks that is configured by the administrator in addition to being able to enter custom task information (as exists today).

                          The quality of the task detail is diminished when I ask individuals to enter their activities as text every time.

                            • Improving export options

                              The export options from scheduler feel under-played. The jpg/png would benefit from a date range on it, and the csv/excel output has almost no information, not even the project names. Appreciate we can do all our work from within the tool, but there are those who like their PPT/PDF reports via email still, and right now this misses the mark for export. Any plans to improve?

                                      • Not card-based rates per project

                                        I'd like to have the possibility to freely change the rate for a ressource on a project without having to select a predefined card but simply put in an arbitrary number.

                                        Main Use-Case: Adjust ressource rate on a project so that reported time * rate equals set budget

                                        • Implement Project Report with Health indicators

                                          At the moment, the Project Status can be used to indicate whether the project is active or not.

                                          It would be good to have extra project health indicators by using simple traffic light system: red, amber, green.

                                          Project report can include:
                                          - Project health indicators
                                          - Notes
                                          - Risk level
