Stop the Project Task Page from Moving Up

The new task page for projects looks great but it is causing an inconvenience to project admins when they are updating the task list. The tasks list seems to refresh and reset to the top of the page each time a task is edited or opened/closed.

This is an issue because in our organization we have a list of 20+ tasks and sometimes we need to mass edit them. The old version would not reset and so it was easy to open/close many tasks quickly. With the update, it now takes 5x longer to make the changes.

Is it possible to just get rid of the code that resets the view to the top or that refreshes the list?

The auto-refresh is helpful to me. We have 200 tasks and sub-tasks in our projects, when closing out tasks that are not currently being used the refresh works rather quickly. I prefer it to the former method of having to refresh the browser session and go back to the task tab. Now, if the screen refreshed automatically and returned to where you were working on the project, that would be ideal in my mind.

I agree with Drema and Lydia. The fact that it doesn't return you to where you were working on the project is the biggest issue. I find myself constantly having to scroll down the list to where I left off as I close-off tasks or edit them. Replicon, I appreciate you taking a look at this.

I REALLY miss the ability to hover the mouse over the people icon to let you know who you entered for each task. I use it all the time as a last check before moving on to the next project.

I REALLY don't like the fact that it automatically inserts the previous tasks budget dollar value into the next task in line - that is dangerous for staff who really have to watch budgets closely,

 I  also agree with the others about the flickering after each entry refreshing and not returning to the last one entered.

Project Managers at our firm are annoyed by the loss of the people being listed when you hover over the icon as well. Take a new look at estimated costs, that seems to be working correctly for me now, but maybe I'm missing something. I recommend using a report to summarize the data for quick and easy review.

Hello again. The full refresh of the task screen after every update continues to be an inconvenience for our project management team. Having to wait for the tasks to load as you scroll back down the list is a waste of time. I would be happy to show you what I'm referring to if you would like an example. It's been a couple months already. Is there any planned improvement to this?
