- Tasks should be able to be dependent on other tasks.
- Those dependent tasks should be in the "Hidden Tasks" until the "blocked" task is complete, and then the dependent task is automatically unhidden.
This would be nice. Tasks aren't all in isolation and the current Task Score system treats them all that way.
Agree- and task score could go up for tasks that are at the head of a chain of dependencies, prompting you to unblock the next task sooner.
This is a must have feature since this app is so action related
Maybe just add an option in the hide task section « hide until subtask is done » would be a easy way to do it
A special case. If there are several tasks in the note and the rule "subtasks in order" is set for it, then all tasks except the first are hidden in ToDo.
Most other task managers epically fail at dependencies :/Perhaps also a progress map in a similar way that video game developers have quest progression charts so that developers know what players have to do first before they get to earn the next adventure/quest. Most game quests are dependent on previous quests’ tasks/milestones being collected before being able to progress to the next one. You know, earn 5000 xp/gold, beat monster, collect sword…Real life examples like: Workouts to certain level of fitness, bank balances, purchases (of say, a bike or weights), dated events, lists of todos checked…These are achievements that might be milestones needed to move forward before other lists of todos are even worth looking at. Often multiple projects/quests branch from or to a single important milestone that is done. “Baby is born” for example.It would be useful to be able to drag them around and put them in the right order and branches so we can see our own roadmap.
Yes, this would make Amplenote very powerful. It could also be used for habit tracking and/or rewards if repeated dependent tasks were incorporated. For example, if the task “work out for 30 minutes” gets repeated 5 times then it unhides the task “have a scoop of ice cream”! (Okay I know that’s not the best way to reward healthy behaviour, but you get the idea!)
Also, sometimes you may have a group of tasks that need to be done, not necessarily in order, Effie the next big task needs to be done. If you could have the logic to create task groups that could all be “unhid” at once, that would also be super helpful and powerful.
Oh, yes please! I ran into this issue on day one of using Amplenote. It can add more choices… so perhaps a very subtle icon.
Dare we ask for a Gantt chart view as well? Amplenote works so well for project managers, this would take that to another level.
Blocker-task also should get higher score (maybe sum of dependencies scores), so, even if it is complex (90+ minutes) it is on top of the tasklist
This is essential. Looking forward to this possibility
I'm a freelancer with multiple side-hustles. I break everything down into tasks. What i struggle with the most in regards to task management is the amount of tasks i have on my plate that are waiting for other tasks to be finished first. My ADHD brain has a hard time keeping up with all the "A can't be done until i finish B, B can't be done until i finish C, and so on". I have multiple levels of this going on at any one time, it's a huge challenge to even get to the scheduling phase. I love Amplenote's "Task Score" feature, i'd love to be able to take advantage of it with task dependencies too, it'd help. It's the only thing stopping me from using Amplenote as my primary app.
My suggestion is to be able to set relations between tasks. I.e. is it a parent-task, a child-task, or an "isolated" task? This would define what gets shown in task view. I don't want to see the parent task until the child task is finished.
Either that, or just add ability to "Hide: Until [#task-x] is comple
"Subtask dependencies / Hide parent-task until its subtask is completed" (suggested by Nic Barnshaw on 2023-03-31), including upvotes (1) and comments (0), was merged into this suggestion.
Instead of the current time selection for the task (15, 30, 60 and 90+ minutes), make the choice of the time interval according to the Pomodoro timer. Something similar to how it is implemented here: https://www.pomonow.com/. Or provide a choice of format
this would totally game changing and would make my system so much efficient
This would take Amplenote to the next level, for sure. This would make the Task view much less cluttered and more helpful at a glance. Like others suggested: I imagine an option in the task options to select the parent task, which would automatically hide the current task until the parent is done.
In OmniFocus, you can set different type "parallel", "sequential" and "single action" for a project/task list. In a "sequential" list, a task is grey until the previous task has been completed, unlike a "parallel" list where all tasks are treated as equal with no particular order.If Amplenote can offer options like that, it would be very useful to stay focus on the available items in the task view.
