Recurrent tasks and iterations Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Dear Omni Group team,

thanks a lot for this great product!

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to support recurrent tasks, especially iterations, in a convenient way. For planning agile, iterative software projects, it would be great to be able to schedule the same task a couple of times. The projects I'm usually faced with usually contain a number of identical iterations (up to 5 or 6), consisting of a couple of tasks (analysis, planning, implementation, testing, ...). It would be great if these iterations could be displayed horizontally, instead of adding a new set of task rows for each iteration.

I guess a quite straightforward way would be to use a group for each task type (e.g., "Analysis") and add a task to this group for each iteration. I tried this, but when I collapse the group, all task bars are fused to a single long bar. Maybe it would be possible to add an option to control the collapsing behaviour - either show one large bar which spans all tasks (like it is implemented now), or show the subtask bars on a single row.

Of course it would be even better to support iterations (e.g., declare a task group as iteration and allow to add soft copies - like the phrase repetition in music sequencing programs).

Sorry if this feature is beyond the scope, but I could imagine that it would set OmniPlan apart from its competitors.

TIA for any hints how to achieve this behaviour with the current version!
