Replicon would be much more efficient if we as administrators had the ability to assign specific activities to each individual project. Since the activities are set at the user level, which includes vacation, holiday, ect, users have the ability to charge vacation/holiday time to a client! I think the best option would be to assign a client related activity template to actual projects.

I think this is an interesting idea and would certainly like to explore how this could be introduced.

Leave is determined by the time off module and is not an activity in our system.

Where we run into difficulty is at the project task level, we would like to limit the activity list option available to the user at the task.  If the project owner could determine which activities can be selected at the task level that could work.

Administrators would setup the available activities in the system and the project owners could determine which are available for their projects.

One item to consider here would be the generic activities that your company might have for non billable internal projects. or as we call them Overhead projects. It is already a significant over head for the project owners to setup each task let alone now assign a sub set of activities to each task or project.

Lets see where this goes

Regards

Gabriel

I see your point on having to assign activities for many overhead tasks. It would be nice to have a select/select all type option to assign activities to multiple projects/tasks at the same time. Most of our projects will have direct labor as their only activity and it would be nice to be able to assign the activity to all of them at once if I wanted to.

Hi Nikki,

I have received an update from the product management team that, this idea is currently NOT PLANNED. However, will be kept in mind during future planning sessions.
