Missing responsibility pull-down during project/task creation (9 posts)

    When creating a project or task, it is not possible to assign responsibility to each member - the pull-down (owner, manager, doer) is not displayed.

    There are many members in the groups. All groups are affected.

    You can specify roles for each involved person on Involved page.
    Those roles are global inside the whole groups, that's why is better to hide such information on per task/project basis.

    In version 1.8.1, I could specify a responsibility to a member (owner, manager, doer) when creating a project or task.

    In version 1.9, I can no longer assign a responsibility to a member (owner, manager, doer).

    I need group members to perform different roles for different tasks and projects.

    The Involved page does not allow me to set global or individual project or task roles. GTM's best feature is no longer available to me in version 1.9.

    Is there any risk in just deleting 1.9 and copying 1.8.1 back to the plugin directory? I need the ability to assign responsibility (owner, manager, doer) to each project and task. Reinstalling 1.8.1 is the quickest way for me to do this - I wanted to show someone this plugin tomorrow. Are there database changes that mean that I can't go back to 1.8.1?

    In version 1.9, I can no longer assign a responsibility to a member (owner, manager, doer).

    As I wrote - go to "Involved" page in the group.

    I need group members to perform different roles for different tasks and projects.

    Not implemented at all. Roles are defined on per group basis, so changing it in one task will change that role for that user in the whole group (for other tasks/projects too).

    I didn't realise this is the way GTM worked. I couldn't get GTM working for quite a while and only recently started using it.

    FEATURE REQUEST - MEMBER RESPONSIBILITIES ALLOCATED FOR EACH PROJECT AND TASK
    I would like to submit this is a feature request. I think a group would derive significant benefit from being able to assign different responsibilities to different people for different tasks and projects.

    I am trying to understand how GTM works. I hope you don't mind a few questions to help me. I want to see if I can use this.

    If there are 100 people in a group and one user creates a task, does that task appear on the "assignments" for all 100 users?

    If there are 100 people in a group, are they all "Involved"? All my members aren't listed on the involved page.

    How does a member become involved? Is the only way for a member to become "involved" for them to create a task.

    MEMBER RESPONSIBILITIES ALLOCATED FOR EACH PROJECT AND TASK

    It's a tone of work to do that. Can't say it will be implemented for free soon.

    If there are 100 people in a group, are they all "Involved"?

    Involved only those, who are responsible for some task (currently or in the past). Go to group members page - Change role button near every member.

    Is the only way for a member to become "involved" for them to create a task.

    Yes. Or project.

    I understand - a person fulfils one role in each group. This is how the world works today. A person has a specific title - Owner, Manager, Executive.

    I spend a lot of time pondering about how the world could work (ie; Web 3.0) by copying how Linux and Open Source were created and managed. I forgot that generally people only have a single role in this world.

    There is a Management 3.0 presentation on my web site that suggests that any individual in an organisation can be a Director, Manager or Executive (Doer) depending on the tasks or content. It isn't what most people do today (although development projects are more likely to work this way), but probably the future.

    A GTM that offered this type of functionality would certainly offer groups a more dynamic way to organise.

    Unfortunately, I am not in a position to sponsor such a project, but could make a contribution. How many days would it take to add this functionality.
