Hi Raphael!

If you look at the top of the window in Projectplace there's a navigation bar. On this you will find "my assignments" where you can find all the things assigned to you including issues. This navigation bar is always available.

Best regards,
Karolina

Thanks Karolina, I had indeed not seen this.

I'm still not used to:

  • having things behind a click, rather than displayed right away (this seems to be a common concept in ProjectPlace, I think it's something you might want to reconsider)
  • changing the name of stuff in different places of the interface (I actually did hunt for a place where my issues would be, and it never occurred to me that "assignments" could be issues -- which totally makes sense, but it just didn't "click" when I was looking for it)

Right now, the project dashboard contains:

  • the project feed (I like this, but I'm the only one on the project who makes any use of it)
  • thumbnails of people on the project (doesn't change much, in a 18-months project)
  • project description (collapsed, entirely useless the way we've configured it, and I doubt that it could be useful for long-term participants of this project)
  • scheduled work (collapsed, rather useless for me because we're a lot of people on the project and most of the scheduled work is irrelevant to me)

... and nothing else! This top project page is not very useful to me right now.

In order for me to get value out of it, I have to interact (click menus, click links, etc.

I'd rather have stuff that's useful to me directly available there -- not hidden.

And one more concern about that menu: it takes time to load, which makes it rather unappealing (and even more so on our poor corporate network...).

In my typical day, I feel like I spend more time waiting for ProjectPlace to load what I want to look at, than looking at what I want. My use is quite light, I just need to check on stuff, but "just checking" is quite costly in time right now. This idea would help, but there are others.

(And by "quite costly" I mean in terms of perception. Those aren't actually large amounts of time, they're just time-lags at moments when I'm not feeling very tolerant of them.)
