  1. 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.

    • 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

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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

                • Assign a colour to a project group

                  Can you please allow colours to be assigned to a project group so I can change the whole group in one go please instead of having to enter each individually.

                  • Default/custom availability is not sufficient

                    The current default/custom availability integration is not sufficient.

                    Example: I have a day off every 2 weeks. So in week 1 I work 5 days, in week 2 4 days, in week 3 again 5 days, etc.

                    There are more employees in my company with that patern, but there is no possibility to enter it in Hub Planner.

                    • Timesheets: Total number of suggested entries

                      There's totals on the timesheet for planned, unsubmitted and sumitted entries but we have our week planned and the suggested entries do not have a total. Sometimes my team forget to acknowledge a suggested entry and it's then picked up by management as an incomplete week.

                      • Timesheet - "Submit All" button to submit ALL time entries for the week not just that line

                        Its cumbersome having to sumbit each line and save each note indivdually. It would be great to just say "submit all" and be done. All notes, all entries are saved.

                        • Subscribe to external calendar & automatically book as event, e.g. "unavailable"

                          In a matrix structure where a single team member might work on multiple projects, it becomes quite troublesome to keep track of resource availability. Subscribing to each resource's calendar e.g., Google, shared iCloud Exchange or basically a source where my Hubplanner project's bookings are NOT synced with (to avoid circular references) would provide me with an accurate, always up-to-date availability overview and greatly facilitate resource assignment for scheduled bookings.

                          • Adjust the PM indicator for a resource

                            The PM indicator is a great addition, but placing the circular indicator to the left of the resource really messes up reading down the name list of resources. There should at least be an option to put the badge to the right of the name.

                            • Set required resources during a phase of a project

                              I would like the possibility to set the required amount of resources (hours) to be put into a project during a phase of the project.

                              For example, I need have e requirement to put in 300 hours before a milestone in mid February, but after that, I only have 200 hours for the rest of the year. This is not supported without splitting the project into two.

                                At present we can schedule a project and add dates, allocation colour etc, but it would really helpful to add a 'category' at this point too. Presently have to go back in and assign, unless I am missing something?

                                • Scheduler - Project revenue summary for Time and Materials projects

                                  It would be good to have a total schedule hours and total revenue summary at the top regardless whether the project has a budget or not.

                                  Currently, in project scheduling view, the summary of scheduled hours, budget and remaining $ are only shown when a project budget is entered.

                                  In some cases for our businesses, it's Time and Materials e.g. based on staff hour rate. The clients don't have a budget and we can keep providing services as requested. This is different to Fixed Price Contract with a budget.

                                  • Custom field - Bulk add and Auto order the Select (drop down list) option

                                    When adding the custom field with Select field option, currently users need to add one by one.

                                    Suggestions are:

                                    - Text area where users can copy and paste the existing list from elsewhere. Each option is on a separate line. This will be more efficient if the list is big.

                                    - Auto alphabetically order option in case . Currently if I add an item to the list, there's no way I can rearrange the order of the list unless I start from scratch.

                                      Implement the risk management for projects including:

                                      - Risk name
                                      - Risk category
                                      - Risk likelihood and consequence
                                      - Risk level (auto calculate using risk matrix)
                                      - Log date and resolved date
                                      - Mitigation actions.

                                      • Sort Billing Rate

                                        So we can sort the Billing rate card by:
                                        - Name
                                        - Currency
                                        - Rate

                                        Sometimes a person can have multiple billing rates depending on the clients. Would be good if we could sort from low to high or alphabetically.

                                        • Client relationship management feature

                                          Hubplanner can really compete on a larger scale if you add CRM feature, which is similar to Resources but for Clients.

                                          Even though you have "Custom fields" that can be changed to Client Management, what will be useful for a lot of businesses is the ability to manage clients as they are the ones who pay money.

                                          Some proposed features include:
                                          - Address book A-Z
                                          - Add, edit, delete clients: name, contact details, position, organisation/company and some custom fields
                                          - For medium to large businesses, they deal with "organisations", which can have multiple individual clients (especially with consulting firms as…
