Dear Dev Team,
My feature request is as follows: Allow a user to leave a project.
As part of this feature:
(1.) When a user leaves, then the Project Manager for the project will receive an e-mail alert.
(2.) Kanban cards that are in any status other than DONE should get special highlighting, to indicate that no one will perform the task.
(3.) Project Managers can add users back to the project. If they are returned to the project, then they automatically own their existing Kanban cards. (This means that a returning user is not treated as a new user.)
Why would you want implement this feature? I can give an example: I have been added to a project that was cancelled a year ago. I still see this project in my project list, and I still have open kanban cards associated with this project. I have written to the Project Manager multiple times, asking to be removed from the project without receiving a reply. At this point, it would make sense to allow me to leave the project without help from the Project Manager.
Thanks for your feedback. Depending on the access settings for the members tool a user can leave a project.
1. If the user has read-only access the user has to be removed by the project administrator.
2. If the user has standard (read and write) access to the Members tool. He or she can go in, mark him or her self, and click remove on the toolbar to be removed from the project.
Kanban cards that are assigned to the removed member will become unassigned and show up in the "unassigned" swimlane when sorting on assignee.
Your point three is a little more difficult to implement. If the user has, for instance, removed the user account in between then we have no way of distinguishing between a new and a recurring user. Also it might not be relevant to have the same cards as they might be returning to the project in a new role or after a long time of absence.
I'm sorry to hear that you have problems contacting the project manager. Are there maybe some other administrators in the project that you can try to contact?
