Allow me to hide role/big rocks panel

  • updated

Great system, thanks ! Quick, trivial, elegant. Good job! 
I would love to make the Sunday bigger (not too much space there currently), plus add ability to hide the leftmost block (global goals). Let me know if you systems supports the above. Thank you.

I have chosen not to allow users to show and hide the goals panel because I feel it is a core feature of weekplan.
Instead, I will improve the layout so that it can display the 7 days without being cramped or having weekend days so small. Stay tuned :)

The system doesn't allow it yet but it is an interesting suggestion. I will look how I can do that.

Regarding making Sunday bigger, I want the weekplan to fit in one page without having to scroll. How could I make Saturday and Sunday bigger and still meet that criteria?

Hey, thanks for you reply.

How about this layout (download using this link - http://fileshare.in.ua/5769139). I couldn't find your email.

I think it is using the available space optimally, without hiding any of the existing blocks.

I can't download the file :( After going through all the ad pages and find the right combination of clicks to get to the download, it says: file not available.

Could you use the http://ge.tt service to upload the picture?

I see. 

It does fix the issue of smaller weekend days but it puts the roles and big rocks area as a second class citizen which is what differentiate WeekPlan from most planners.

Maybe I could expand the sliding area by default on everyday except monday and friday. The user can click to collapse or expand the sliding area.

That could work but I wonder if it doesn't complexify the interface too much.

How about this: when you pass you mouse on any day, the list expands towards the bottom (without moving the elements that are under) so that you can see the full day. Do you see what I mean?

Check out this live example of what I mean: http://jsfiddle.net/kMUmL/3/
Pass your mouse on the blue or red list.

1. I see your point about being different from other planner, and I agree with you.

2. The sliding stuff on mousover. Honestly I don't like it. But this is a one-man-opinion, people may love it, who knows. "Try to know".
I don't like it because I love seeing everthing at once, without scrolling/sliding/dragging/mouseovering/etc. Trivial solution is usually the best.

Well actually normal people (not me) usually do not plan too much for weekend, so I think your software works fine for 95% :)

What about not using scrollbars at all? Lists expand as you add tasks and push the other lists down...

This is what I originally thought too but maybe I can find a way to make it less painful for the 5% who are active during the weekends :)

Blocks of a different height may not look good altogether. But that's a solution too.
(to me personally "no-scrollbar" is the best. Like I said before - you always see the whole thing in front of you, with no additional action)
