Get the flags out
By admin, posted on May 1st 2007
What’s this? No entries for 5 months then two in a week? It must be something special! And it is special, in fact it’s a whole new feature.
One of the things that I find difficult in projectGenie is keeping track of where I said I would do something. I have no problem seeing what the latest tasks are, and the latest notes attached to tasks, but I remeber I said I’d do something a few days ago, and I can’t remember where I said it or what task it was.
No longer! Now when I add my "Don’t worry, I’ll look at that in a couple of days"-type notes I can just tick the ‘Flag’ checkbox and that task is flagged for me. Not anyone else, just for me. You can see a demo of this wondrous thing in the little screenshot.
And when I’ve done whatever it was I said I’d do, or it turns out that the action is no longer needed, I can just un-flag it (de-flag, perhaps?) and the flag is gone. Simple!
The flags are set on a per-task and per-user basis, so that means that I can flag whatever tasks I want for me, and other users can flag other tasks just for them. If you want to get your hands on this feature then sorry, you’re going to have to wait for the official release of the Brookmeyer version.
