That's a rough list of enhancement ideas for worklog.
Some of them I'm going to do (but not all).
Feel free to suggest more or "get rid of WL, use X instead",
just don't forget the "because of" part.
report: easy to do tasks
make it to provide a list of "low-handing fruits", tasks that
could be done relatively easily and without prior extensive MySQL
source knowledge. For community members that want to help.
report: who's doing what NOW
that's pretty obvious
report: tasks for specific version, roadmap
worklog kind of does it now, mostly listed for
ability to remove hours
Somebody mentioned that a number of hours could be
increased by mistake, and there should be a way to decrease
is back. I'm not convinced it's a good idea, though.
generate weekly report templates
to reduce the need for double or tripple reporting. WL generates a
weekly report for a developer, based on its data, and sends it to
this developer. The developer in question can edit it and sent to
reports@, or copy-paste from it, or filter it out and ignore
private tasks and categories
There should be a way to have private categories and tasks in WL.
this includes fixing "private" field in WL tasks.
distingushing between employees and users
for many tasks from the above WL needs to distinguish between MPAB
employees and other registered users.
Sanja seems to be unhappy with WL search
make it more readable for novice wl readers
no big redesign or anything, though. but I think that moving task
description up and, say, attached files and estimated number of
hours down could help somewhat.
not editable unless authenticated
that's more a bug than a new feature. no changes in tasks should be
allowed unless a user is authenticated.
subscribe w/o authentication
but perhaps we may want to allow users to subscribe to tasks w/o
being authenticated ? I'm not going to do that, though.
a couple of pages that could be easily inserted (iframe-ed ?) into
other pages without disrupting the design too much. Mainly "roadmap"
and "easy tasks" reports, but also "WL of the day" too.
"WL of the day" - it's a new crazy idea, I wanted to discuss.
Basically, that's a small block somewhere on the main page that shows a
randomly (?) selected WL task - only the description (or a part of it),
a link to a full task page, and voting controls (useless... very important).
