Planner Enhancements Required
I would love to see the following adaptations to the planner tab:
1) Enable more than 6 labels & allow users to choose their own colors.
2) Allow search option within the planner wherein we can easily search for text within a task name / task contents / comments within a task. This will really really help.
3) Allow users to manually enter the progress % for each task.
4) As the tasks approach their due date some automatic coloring of the tasks will be helpful (such as yellow - when the task is still quiet far from the target date, light pink - when it is 1 week away from target date, dark red - when it exceeds the target date).
5) Ability to provide an update on a task (not via. comments).
6) When someone puts the comment we don't have to see the full company signature being imported from outlook & put below the text (unless someone from outside the company is commenting).
7) Ability to extract all the added information within the planner onto an excel sheet for further analysis.
8) The width of the buckets cannot be controlled on the view screen. The view of the planner currently allows a complete view of max. 3-4 buckets at any time; however we prefer to compress the view so as to enable us to view more buckets within a single screen.
9) Ability to transfer tasks from one bucket to another (better than drag & drop).
10) Ability to allocate priorities within the tasks within a single bucket so as to keep the most urgent tasks on top & the least urgent ones at the bottom.
