Be better, ClickUp
While I do like your platform quite a bit, this email I got after importing a few tasks from Trello made me go "what were they thinking?" It's in incredibly poor taste, and why do you even need to dunk on Trello? The products are barely comparable. Please be better than this.
Is there a shortcut or way to load a list/space and apply a filter without having to select it everytime?
Positioning of ClickUp as personal todo app
I have been looking for 'The' to do app and I stumbled upon ClickUp when I searched on Todoist - I have tried a few for a period of time but none was really 'The' app. To start with I was using Awesome Note (paid), Wunderlist, Microsoft Todo, Google Keep and finally ClickUp. My requirement was rather simple: - I need a cross device app (which is the reason why I switched from Awesome Note) - Synchronization consistency across device (iOS Google Keep failed big time) - Sub-list (expanded under a main list) and sub-task - Synchronization with Google Calendar - Custom recurring tasks (repeat every x day/weeks/months) Google Keep was promising but the support was non-existence - to which I'm pleasantly happy with what I have been seeing from ClickUp. This coupled with the fact you guys listen to users, to me is the best selling point seriously. Another feature I really like is the ability to change due date upon close instead of piling up all the closed repeating tasks. Ok, now come to some of my wish list. I am a to-do mobile app user so ClickUp maybe sort of an overkilled app, but I find that ClickUp have a strong business case and ecosystem if you start to position also as a personal to-do mobile app (competing against Wunderlist/Todo, Google Keep etc.) - Team default assignment is set to self automatically, currently I have set my ClickUp desktop as personal team layout so that is okay. However on mobile app it is still not assigned to anyone and I need an additional 2 clicks (UX consistency) - There is no badge showing on the mobile app for overdue tasks (consider this very important feature to have) - Ability to sort by priority/due date on mobile - Ability to set recurring tasks on mobile - Ability to have proxy set up on desktop app according to the IE internet setting, currently it just never load up. - Ability to set reminder/notification a week before due date (while there are currently two other alternatives, one is to set the task with start date but the downside is the calendar view will have quite a few 'rows' blocked up visually; the other is to set on the settings for notifications, but in this case I only wish to set on a particular list, not the entire space). One use case is birthday reminders, I'd like to be reminded a week before contacts' actual birthday. - Ability to set yearly repeat on a particular day of the week (such as 2 weeks before Mother's day) - When setting recurring tasks, the default date should be the due date (currently it is the date I'm editing which made me changing both the due date and recurring date all the time) For personal and mobile app use, perhaps you can consider strip down the activity view and watchers to simplify the UI. That's all from me and I'm happy to be using ClickUp regardless :)
Use of Custom Fields in Free Version
I know I am limited to 100 'uses' of custom fields, but unsure what that means. Also, is there a way to see how many you have used of this and other limited functions. Thanks
Subtasks inherit custom fields from Parent Task
Please make it the default option that subtasks inherit all of the custom fields of its parent task. We use custom fields for different type of aggregations but allow internal users to create subtasks for their own use without their explicit knowledge of attached the aggregating custom fields.
Closing out Sprints
Just curious how everyone uses Sprints. I currently setup sprints as Lists within a folder (not sure if this is the best way) and that is fine for tracking the tasks for that given sprint but what do you do once a sprint is finished? In Jira, you can close out sprints and start the next one so its clear that the sprint is completed. What do you do with the tickets that overflow from one sprint to the next in ClickUp? Do you just move them to the next Sprint List (which effects story points) or do you keep working within that Sprint List and track that those remaining tickets go past the due date? Is there a better way to setup my sprints to allow for tasks that ultimately do not get completed on time (of course I don't want this to happen but unfortunately it does)? Thanks
