Project list: Active And Not Stalled Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Another "Is this just me?" desired feature:

As I described in another thread, in my weekly review I use Start Dates heavily to determine what lands in my task list. After I've gone through and set entire projects On Hold or set a future Start Date for projects that I know I won't touch this week, I go to a list of remaining available tasks and push many of those tasks into the future on a task-by-task basis, also using Start Dates. This causes many projects to be stalled, which is fine with me.

After I do that, I'd like to have a view of projects that shows me only projects with available tasks, hiding the stalled projects. I realize that I can make projects with no available tasks disappear by giving them a project-level Start date equal to the most recent task Start date, and that's what I'm doing, but I'd rather not have to. I'd instead prefer a view of "Active And Not Stalled" projects.

Is this in there somewhere? If not, again, is it just me or could someone else also use this? (I'm new enough at this that I hesitate to put in a formal feature request for what might end up being my Whim Of The Day.)

One approach would be to switch to Context view and choose to group by project in the view bar.

Hmmm. Yes, that does cover some of my needs, thanks - especially since I see that I can access the project Inspector from there, which I didn't realize previously.

I suppose it is logical that if I want my Project list to be based on available tasks, I should be the view that's more focused on available tasks. I still find myself wanting the other, but I'll wait and see if I still want it next week, before I submit a feature request. :)
