It would be great to be able to change the status of task without opening it. During project meeting we review using Gantt chart views and it would be great to be able to change the status of tasks without opening them. If you click on a task in Gantt chart view the summary pop has a menu with Enable effort, Convert to milestone and Delete task - it would be really useful to have Change status there too.
We also review previous meeting minutes which contain permalinks to tasks. It would also be great to be able to update the status of these tasks by right-clicking on the permalink instead of having to open the task and then return to the page we were on.
