OpenGoo Considerations / Features Request
« on: December 27, 2008, 09:56:56 PM »
Hello,

I just installed OpenGoo 1.1 RC2. First, I would like to congrat the developers for this great work.

Although, there is a long road ahead if OpenGoo wants to compete with other related software.

Some considerations...

1# Does OpenGoo supports LDAP? IT should! this is really important!!!

2# Gantt chart (very attractive feature)

3# Automatic task time ticking (I think this may already be implemented)

4# API? Is there any?

5# Workspaces... I would prefer 'Projects', hey but this is just me!

6# ISSUE TRACKING !!! -> IMPORTANT!!!

7# In Documents... revision tracking and category are useful to me.

8# Task dependencies

9# Automated backup? Can I implement this manually through crontab?


Maybe some of this features may be implemented in 1.3.

Is there any 'hack' to implement LDAP?


Regards and... once again congratulations!

Happy Coding!



Karl

1# Does OpenGoo supports LDAP? IT should! this is really important!!!

Support for LDAP is currently being developed but I don't really know when a first version of this would be out.

2# Gantt chart (very attractive feature)

Yes, this is requested very frequently. We haven't started working on this but we plan to do so.

3# Automatic task time ticking (I think this may already be implemented)

I'm not sure of what you mean by this, but currently you can mark a task as being worked on, and when you later mark it as stopped it will measure the time that you spent working on it.

4# API? Is there any?

Not yet, it is being planned.

5# Workspaces... I would prefer 'Projects', hey but this is just me!

It used to be projects, but we changed it to workspaces because it is a broader term that applies to more scenarios.

6# ISSUE TRACKING !!! -> IMPORTANT!!!

No plans for the near future for this, but we would benefit too from an issue tracker. We are currently using OpenGoo tasks.

7# In Documents... revision tracking and category are useful to me.

Documents have revisions. Each time that you save a document a new revision is created. Is that what you mean with revision tracking? And what do you mean by categories?

8# Task dependencies

It has been requested before but we haven't planned it yet.

9# Automated backup? Can I implement this manually through crontab?

We are working on it. You will be able to perform several tasks by setting up one cron daemon. One of them would be backups. Others will be email checking, trash purging and sending email reminders.
