Hello,

in general a good idea, as long as they really are integrated with the regular task functionality in projectplace and - most important - as long as you can mark them as being not public. Everybody knows the following situation: In order to fulfill a task you need to complete several subtasks or prepare yourself by reading papers, clean up notes or to talk with somebody about a detail... If you want to create a short todo list to being able to remember what needs to be done (for yourself) tasks are not a good choice, because every teammember can see it.

So, in case projectplace really goes for it, it would be phantastic if there was a possibility to mark a todo as public - so, only the user who entered it into projectplace can see it or - if he wants to share it, he marks it as being public.

Regards,

Joachim

I agree - a ToDo list is a good thing. Now we have "issue tracking". But that's not enough. Issues are global (visible to everyone who is allowed to see issues), but I need to give small individual or group (assigning issues to many people is impossible) assignments and control them in the same way as issues. Can this be implemented?

Instead of adding a separate TOOD list the features for issues should be extended and possible better integrated with tasks.
It should be possible to assosiate issues with deadlines. In most situations you have a list of stuff that needs to be finished at a certain deadline and you start working on this list. In many cases the deadline will be postponed for any number of reasons. So the deadline is moved and my tasks is still assosiated with the deadline and not the date.

An integrated part of this should also be Burndown Charts (23 issues, 8 done(took 10 days) --> estimated time remaining == 21 days).

An example project system that does this nicely is Trac (http://trac.edgewall.org/).

In general I think it is importent to get as "flat" system as possible with minimum hierarical structure. It is easier to get to and quicker to use.
