I totally agree. In my projects I like to tie documents to tasks, so that every task results in a document, and every document stems from a task. Tofay I prefix document numbers with WBS codes, but that makes it impossible to add a task that changes the wbs numbering.

This is an option that is greatly missed currently in ProjectPlace. Please put this on your prioritylist. Currently linking of documents to an issue is possible, but not to tasks in WBS.

By adding normal document functionality to tasks, it would be easy to add a link to a certain document in document archive or just add a document directly in the task.

It is a nice idea!

After the investigation we have found that implementing this in the way it's done in, for example Meetings, is too complicated to be part of the ongoing quality work. This has to be prioritised against new development.

Or we need to find another way of implementing.

I do agree that this would be a big improvement.
To prefix documents with WBS codes is insufficient from a user and project leader point of view to complicated.
It is to be expected that almost every tasks concists of a specification in a document or would have documents as a results of the completed task.
Therfore an attribute would be helpful to make the distinction between type of documents.
Funny is that within this comment it would be possible to add a file (document).

This feature is clearly a must have. It (i) facilitates work tremendously and (ii) much cheaper products have it!
The document link should ideally work like this: (i) I can fetch a link from within a task and give it a name other than the document name or link reference and (ii) I push a link from the document to one or more tasks with a specified name other than the document name or linke reference.

We think that this idea is good and we’d like to take a better look at what the needs are behind and/or how it could fit into our current product strategy.

However the linking of documents will probably be done in the new planning tools rather than in Tasks, hence the status of this idea...

Hello,
There are other ideas which cover more or less the same issue.
For example:
http://ideas.projectplace.com/feedbacks/46568-improvement-idea-better-link-between-tasks-and-documents
and
http://ideas.projectplace.com/feedbacks/46283-link-tasks-to-an-issue
@Support Project Place could these not somehow be linked?
This would improve the use of this ideas functionality and give you a better insight of what is required.
Kind regards
Paul Bergman

Are there any further movements on this topic? It is really a missing feature and I would suggest that it be prioritized. You will have the same or a similar issue with Actions. Regards, Gloria

Hi Gloria and everyone else,

In the next version of the iPad app you will be able to attach files to action cards. You will also be able to do this in the web service in the next few month (hopefully) on Actions.

I will leave the status of this idea unchanged however since it is very unlikely that we will implement this feature in the old planning tool Tasks.
