Thank you for using and testing CrushPAD!
I must admit that all of my tools have a very simplistic Dialog structure till now but I want to change this in the future.
Show up active Working could be done. There are different things that are nearly the same like unsolved, work in progress and partially solved. Should I show up all of them or specialized? This was was the reason only to show what you´re searching for. A show all buttion is no problem to do.
With the export-button you can save plain text. I only haven´t done an import-function till now
. The problem is how to create compatible states, because internally the categories and subcategories have a singular number and new categories/subcategories must be inserted the right way that they´re not leading to collisions. I wanted to do this later. An index isn´t useful. All entries should be inserted by their creation date.
--- if I click on a record and then decide to insert a new record, it makes a copy of the one I'm on. Is it supposed to do that?
-> Yes. I made this because often some special cases appear again and again and so I only have to click on an old case, can change it if I like and so simply can insert and create a new ticket. It could be interesting to analyze the repeats of similar tasks/tickets.
--- having your categories read from the file makes it hard to set up some existing projects and categories, especially without an option to do it directly. You actually have to enter tasks to enter category information.
-> Really? Creating categories and subcategories should work without any tasks. Please describe a more detailed example how to get this problem.
I've been using Task Coach Portable lately and it also saves all the data, including categories, in the main data file but it has options to enter them separately. I like Task Coach but don't actually need the overhead and all the features. It's written in Python, so it takes up a lot of disk space.
-> I wanted a lightweighted solution that saves as small files as possible and has only the features I personally need. This is the reason why I save categories/subcategories only one time at the header and use their index along with the tasks. I also planed to insert zip or 7z support for the datas if it doesn´t slows down too much.
Please tell me what features you use most that are missing in CrushPad. Experiences with other ticket-management-progs are very interesting. Till now CrushPad does its job good enough for me.
I hope you continue to develop your CrushPad. It's nice to have choices.
-> At the moment other projects have a higher priority but I never wanted to stop its development. All of my programs could get new functions in the future at the latest when I personally need them. (Besides, I use my own programs quite often
After collection some wishes I´ll insert these functions in a new release.
