Task Inline Editing Enhancement

Task Inline Editing Enhancement

Hi All,

Today, we have made an enhancement in task inline editing. In 4.0, task edit is moved in a single screen in a pop-up. We designed this in-order to make the task edit across the product to be the same. Let it be in Feeds, Tasks & My Tasks tab, Calendar & My Calendar tab, a click on the task title will open the popup and user can edit the values. Customers pointed us the inline editing was very useful to them & how much they miss that in 4.0. Based on the feedback, we have rolled out this enhancement.

With this enhancement the users can edit the values of Owner, Start Date, End Date, Duration, % complete etc within the list view.

We have provided the inline editing option in Classic View of Tasks tab. We are happy to announce that the inline editing is also provided in "My Tasks" classic view, which was not there in 3.0 version.

Inline editing in "Tasks - Classic View"



A BIG thanks to Adrian for taking time to explain the difficulty in details. We haven't thought about multi-edit for plotting a workflow ( point 2 in the post ) when we decided to remove this. We thought consolidating all updates on a detail page will make it more easy for users. But Adrian explanation helped us understand the exact problem users face without that. This post helped us understand the usage & implement the feature back in 4.0. 

Once again thanks Adrian for helping us with detailed explanation.

Thanks,
Mani.

As Mani said, our thought is to make the task editing similar across the product i.e in a detail popup page. We understood the heavy usage of the inline editing option and rolled out the enhancement.

Regards,
Vijay

    • Blueprint in Zoho Projects

      Often, we stumble upon tasks having the same status workflow. Repetitive task processes are tedious to handle, right? That’s why we have introduced Blueprint for task automation. Blueprint is a tool to organize tasks and automate them based on the workflow you design and the criteria you define.    How do I associate tasks with a blueprint?

    • Tip: How to print the Gantt View

      Though we move from the traditional project management system (using papers) to an online project management system, we still prefer to have a printed copy of the activities/tasks that are to be done in the project. This way, we can carry the to-do lists with us for the meetings and refer when we are offline. The print option, available at the right side of the page, allows the users to print the project information across all the modules. However, this option failed to print all the tasks & milestones
    • UI enhancements in Gantt charts

      We recently launched a bunch of new features in Projects. Our Gantt charts were revamped to accommodate the most awaited feature - four types of task dependency. Here is a brief summary of the enhanced features supported by Gantt charts that will come in handy while working with task dependencies: Drag a line to set dependency. It's that simple. Link tasks using all the four types of dependencies. Drag a line from the predecessor task to the successor task in the Gantt chart to create a new dependency.
