Request : Followup categories (@context & project)

Postby georgefurnell » Wed Oct 16, 2013 11:28 am

Hi,

I know this request was raised a while back but I'm sad not to see it in 6.2, please give it a higher priority in your planning.

The full request - be able to add more than 1 category (i.e. context or project) to a follow-up task.

Regards
George

Thanks for the feedback. That request remains on our list, and we hope to get to it in a future release.

I'm not sure this is the same request, but whenever I create a Follow-up task it is placed in a project automatically. However, no category (context) is assigned to it. That means all my follow-up tasks keep being shown in the "<Unassigned Tasks> category, leaving me to think it contains tasks I've forgotten to categorise.

Is this related to the bug that was fixed in the latest 7.04-update ("Resolve problems in Category selection in QuickTasks and Followup") or something separate? Is it something I can change myself?

What you are mentioning is a bit different from the original request - that user was requesting that it be possible to assign multiple categories to a follow up task. Also, the QuickTasks bug you mention is a different issue - when using the QuickTasks interface, sometimes the category was not getting attached to a task even if it was selected.

Categories are not added to follow up tasks by default. If you want to assign a category, click on the Options button in the follow up creation window, and add a category you want assigned. Note that this category setting is sticky, and will remember the category for future follow up tasks by default.

Great, thank you for the explanation!
