Is there a chance that roles will be broken out at the bottom again?

Or do we have to just accept the change / move on?

What if we introduce a way to see all your backlog grouped by role, a bit like a user suggested, you would have three links: "Schedule Boards Roles"

Like the Boards view, you would be able to see your Schedule on the same page as the Roles board.

We would however keep the Plan of the Week as it is.

Would that solve the contention?

How many HITs do you have currently in Plan of the Week?

About 8-10 (considering it's Wednesday). 


I have 5-6 roles and a backlog of tasks for all the roles. This is similar to how the tech team works at my startup (scrum and backlog). The old view used to allow us to see all the tasks on one screen, even things that might have dropped off the radar. The new view is usable, though the screen real-estate is not being fully optimised.

If you want something similar to the old layout, you can create a new board, and have a list per role.

That way, you would see your schedule at the top and board and lists at the bottom

FYI each task is about 3-6 hours, and each day can about 3 tasks (including weekends, which usually have more--errands are key items, but take less time if you batch them).

Plan of the Week is meant for the really important stuff you want to get done this week

Not meant for every tasks of the week, or as a backlog.

Here's a paper version I was using previously until I discovered the awesome Week Plan. The intent is to see everything on one screen (without scrolling, without forgetting anything). I understand the intent to prioritise the HITs better, but in any week I would have about 10-15, which makes the left pane slightly unmanageable.

How many of such important tasks should users have each week?

This is a working suggestion. I guess I'll try it this way for now.

As much as you can as guess, but aim to complete 100% of them most of the time. If you constantly fail at completing them all, you need to lower how many you commit to per week

You can set a list to automatically set a default role when you add a task in it
