I tried to search into the forum and didn’t find anything related so I hope I’m not making any duplicate!
I’ll start my request with my practical example. I’m setting up a new dashboard where I need to add some dependencies between tasks.
What I did first was to create a new attribute, which I callled “Child Tasks” and then I linked here the child tasks: tasks we need to be done before the first task can be done.
Doing this, I see in my column view that this Reference is being shown in both task, which is good, but at this moment only the title of the referenced task is shown below the main task.
I think that with a lot more tasks, managed by different people, it would be difficult to understad which one is child of which other.
I think about how I would solve this and I figured this:
- When creating the Reference Attribute I would ask, in addition to the Title, an “inverse Label”
- I would prefix the Referenced Task with the Title in the case I’m linking the task where I added the Reference
- and I would prefix the inverse Label in the Reference Task showed under the reference.
“Parent: [title]” or “Child: [Title]”.
This way I could be easy to understand why a task has a connection with another.
If this type of inverse label is not possible (now or later) then the user (me!) could create two fields for his use (in my case Parent Tasks and Child Tasks) but, it would still be needed to show the Reference Attribute Title.
I don’t know if this idea is well explicated, it’s very difficult to me to conceptualize even in my own language too, so I add a screenshot hoping to give you a cleaner idea!
