Re: Some works regarding GTG's redesign


In regards to the "Mark As Done" and "Dismiss" buttons I think their positioning makes sense to me. It's where I would expect those buttons to be, but with the difference of inverting their positions, since the "positive" action is usually on the right side of windows: "Ok", "Save", "Next", etc. At least, that's what my limited experience tells me.

Integrating collaboration doesn't need to be anything complicated. One feature I'd love to have in terms of collaboration is team management. With that in mind there could be an entry on the left sidebar called "Team". How to create the team is another issue, but in the Team section there could be team member names/emails, under their respective team name entries, and then one could simply drag a task onto the team member on the sidebar, like what is possible to do with tags. Maybe it should also be possible to assign a task to an entire team as a means of easily creating "projects". Well, this is what I'd like to see. Not necessarily like this but with similar functionality.

I will probably continue to work on this in the coming weeks, although less intensively since I will have less time for GTG, and also because we will now concentrate progressively more on the next release. I'm sending this mail today to notice you about this work and to give everyone an opportunity to provide feedback.

> gtg-mockup-organizer presents a potential full GNOME 3.x GTG. Except for the top bar which become a "navigation bar" rather than a toolbar, it is the same as the previous one, but it is now consistent with other GNOME 3.x apps (see https://live.gnome.org/Design/Apps/).
> In gtg-mockup-organizer-viewbar, I show an additional toolbar that allows the user to refine how tasks are presented and what tasks are presented. I like that bar.
> The last mockup (gtg-mockup-workview) presents an experimental "Work View" which presents itself as a complete dedicated mode of GTG (rather than a simple adaptation like it is the case in the current version), with a strong focus on doing rather than organizing the task. For instance, you would not be able to edit tasks while in this mode. (it's just an idea a this point, I haven't though this through yet)

> If you're interested, you can play with the mockups, which offer a (very) limited interactivity. I made them available on this branch: lp:~gtg-contributors/gtg/gtg-redesign-mockups They're based on HTML+CSS, and best viewed in firefox (for the full support of gradients. Also, I only tested them in this browser.). I recommend opening mockups/task_browser/14-alternate_workview/organizer.html first (it corresponds to the screenshots in attachment).
> Some months ago, I also implemented an experimental branch with the alternate task list you can see in the mockups (which was designed by alba originally): lp:~bertrand-rousseau/gtg/new-task-list-layout You might be interested to take a shot at it. Not everything is implemented (no indent for children) and I now think the task containers' heights are to wide, but it nevertheless provide an interesting feeling.
