Have "breadcrumb" style navigation for all tasks & subtasks
Right now you can only see one of the folders a task is in in the dashboard, and when you open a task you can't easily see if it's a subtask of a subtask of a larger task. It would be great to have a breadcrumb style navigation that shows you how the task relates to the other tasks in that project (or larger task) so you can tell what exactly you're looking at.
Hi Regina, welcome to the forums :) This is an interesting post, I want to dive into the details a little bit.
Right now, I have a task that's in multiple Folders and I'm able to see the different Folder names on the Dashboard (under the task name). I think maybe you want to be able to create Dashboard widgets with tasks from multiple Folders/Projects?
For the breadcrumb style navigation, would you like to see the breadcrumbs in the Task View (the view that opens when you click on a task)?
If I have a subtask called Design that's under a task called Email 1 that's part of Marketing Campaign 1 project, I'd like to be able to see Marketing Campaign 1 > Email 1 > Design when I click on the Design task. Does that make sense?
Hi Regina, that definitely does! Thank you :)
Yes, this would be useful. Right now I was given a very large vehicle engineering project designed and imported from a competitors' software where I have several supertasks that have very similar subtasks. For instance, I may have "design validation" and "release to procurement" for many or all of the supertasks. This is clear in a Timeline view, but when I look at the Board view, I have many tasks simply labelled "Design Validation" and many more named "Release to Procurement". It would be incredibly helpful to my team members to have those cards say "Front Girder Assy->Design Validation" and "ABS System->Release to Procurement" automatically. I have had to manually go through each subtask in my project and add in those extra prefixes so that the Board view is useful.
Michael, this is great! Thanks for sharing info about what your processes are like, this is really helpful. :)
It would also be useful when receiving email and mobile notifications to see the full breadcrumbs to know what project the task is associated to as currently it only shows the highest level parent folder.
