Alright here goes. Ill try to explain this as good as I can in english. Podio is a project management tool, without any real project management tools.. Im a project manager, and im using Podio a lot, and im very happy with it. One of the things missing though, is a Gantt chart. My idea for how this should be implemented in an easy way is this:
We currently have the ability to view our apps in different ways (badge, card, list etc.). In this list of views, a Gantt view could be added.
In the settings area of the Gantt view, it should be possible to define which field in the app should be show as the group (or phase) name. The tasks created with reference to the entries in the app, should then be shown under the groups (in this case the groups could be all the entries in the deliverable app).
In the calendar part of the Gantt chart, the duration of the created tasks and groups (deliverable entries) could be shown.
That would give us an invaluable overview off our projects, and a method of visualizing a project flow. I know this doesn't take into account, in which degree a single task is completed, but that could be added as a later functionality :)
