Hi! Few ideas for you:

Anonymous 8 years ago updated by Aymeric (Founder) 8 years ago 16
1) tie tasks & roles with each other i.e. add visibility to roles & tasks associated with it e.g. let user highlight every role & task with a color;
2) add auto-reminders for tasks sensitive to specific time e.g. send e-mail;
3) add option to make some roles & tasks visible in report & some not e.g. to extract information which could be shared with boss & other separately;

Just click on a role and only tasks related to that role will be shown. If you print the page while you have a role selected, it will print with that filter (and not show your other roles) so that you can share it to your manager.

1/ Yes, I need to find an elegant way to do that. It will be an opportunity to add colors to the user interface.

2/ People have suggested that in the past. Please vote here.

3/ Could you please explain what should be included in the report?
1) How about using a role button in-front of each task (or between the Priority and the Task Description when that feature is added).  This button is then colored the same as the role color.  The roles listed in the Weekly Compass also have the same color.

If you click the role, then the weekly planning shows only those tasks with that role and any tasks unassigned.  This lets the user click the Unassigned tasks Role Button to change its color to the same as the current role being examined.
2) Perhaps add all the social outlets: PM to Twitter, FaceBook, Google+, MySpace...
Then you can also choose to have certain Tasks shared...

I also like this requires a due date option to be available with the tasks.
What kind of task would share on FB / Google+?
3) I would like to see it:
Private: Left off reports unless you specify to add all items.  Reports saved online can only be seen by the user.
Public:  Default setting for reports, shows only these items.  Reports asved online can be viewed by any WeekPlan user.  Or those associated with you.
Link: Creates a report that can be shared, but only if the link if followed.  Anyone can see this report, even if they are not a WeekPlan user.  Great way to demonstrate to potential users.

Hi Aymeric!
1) ok, could you advise when to expect the point to be implemented?
2) ok, as there are already many votes for the point, maybe let's keep it here?
3) explaining in details: sometimes my boss asks me what I'm doing, so in order to reply quickly I could press a link/button on weekplan.net and extract all tasks associated with my working role e.g. finance analyst. Of cource, the 1st point above must be implemented first as you need to tie tasks & roles together.
you need to capture time to do it, now you can't assign timeframes
@Mr Green
Why must time be captured?
@Maggard
guess to be able to send those reminders to you on time. If you need the system to remind you sometihng at say 3-00 pm (UTC+0), you should somehow let the system know that you are actually expecting it to remind you this something at 3-00 pm (UTC+0)
Thanks for clarification (you should create an on userecho so that I can recognize you)
@Evgeny, have you got any reply?
Hi! No I haven't.

@Aymeric, may I kindly ask you to update on this please? Thanks in advance.
My apologies Evgeny. 

I was following the discussion but for some reason my brain didn't register you were expecting for an answer.
 
All 3 suggestions are really good. 

Suggestion #1 is probably the quickest to implement, the most useful to people, the most visual and the one that matches the best with my vision of WeekPlan.

I just need to find the time to work on it :) (I work on WeekPlan in my spare time while trying to run a startup and do consulting for clients).

Suggestion #2 is also definitely something useful but not as important as #1. By the way, the way I handle time in my WeekPlan is that I put the time as a prefix of the task, and the task is always urgent: "12:30 Have coffee with Matt!" 

Suggestion #3: I am planning on offering WeekPlan for teams. You can have multiple calendars and invite people to it. In a group calendar, each user would show as a role and can be associated with tasks (delegated) like you suggest in #1. So instead of having to print the report, you could simply share the WeekPlan with your manager.
Does it sound like a good way of helping you and your manager?
 
#1 - ok, looking forward to it
#2 - I do the same now, but IMHO the auto-reminders is also a considerable addition
#3 - sounds great, but sometimes you just need a piece of paper to look at on your desk

Anyway I agree the very 1st change is the most critical one, so hope you'll find time to work on it soon.

Thanks!
I have made WeekPlan print-friendly already. Just print using the landscape mode.
Just deployed item #1. Let me know what you think!
