Dashboard - group by priority

Postby georgefurnell » Wed May 07, 2014 1:18 am

Hi,
Refer to the attached screenshot showing
* my dashboard with yellow (B) and
* screenshot from the 4th edition book showing the MYN urgency zones by grouping the tasks by priority (A)

As per the MYN principles I want to manage my tasks using the urgency zones, and hoped to see this on the dashboard tasks view.

I have not found a way to group the dashboard tasks by priority, is this possible ?

Regards
George

The Dashboard does not currently offer the same urgency zone view as the MYN Outlook view. The Dashboard Today by Priority view is intended as a list of what one should currently be working today. At the time this feature was created, we did not feel that it made sense to exactly replicate the Outlook to-do view that was available. However, now that the most recent Outlook version seems to be retiring the to-do bar window, we may revisit this in the future.

Ok, noted.

Is there another way to achieve a similar objective, i.e. view the tasks etc. in groups based on priority in the CC system or is using the Outlook lists the only way. Because if is then then the Dashboard is "less" valuable for managing tasks.

Hope I'm wrong and there is alternative.

Regards
George

currently, using the Outlook view is the only way. General grouping by priority is not available in the Dashboard.

Will it make it onto your future request list ?

We have added it to our request list, though whether it gets implemented or not depends on whether there is enough demand for the feature.
