Offer way to split task over more than one period
Sometimes we work on a task 1 week in this month and two weeks in the next with a break in between. It would be great to be able to specify more than one activity periods per task. Possibly with a recurring pattern like 2 days per week.
This would be a very useful feature!
Input for the solution:
Right click the bar, press split or ctrl drag makes a copy of the block.
If the bar is left next to an other split bar they recombine.
This would be a very great feature!
This really needs to be done to make this a more useful tool.. Please...
% Complete seems like it's not needed for something like this, as it's a recurring task.
Just consider it either 0% (or 100%) complete until it shows up again..
If Resources and Dependencies are the hang-up, why not just have this as a separate option (in the pull-down menu to add a task) that is treated differently than other regular line items?
And just not include these lines in the Resources and/or Dependencies features...
I don't know if that's the hold-up, (if not, just ignore what I said), but these few repetitive tasks wouldn't "have to" necessarily integrate with everything else...
Just trying to make this feature easier to integrate... Thank you..

YES! This feature would be great!
+1 We just signed up for the advanced version, we really need the ability to split a task, e.g. start and stop a task over a period of time. For example, my team do not work on it during holidays, and Xms, or just work on it one day a week for say, 6 weeks. Kind of makes the time tracking feature useless if the tool is calculating hours they are not working on it because dragging it over a long period adds hours to those days in between.

ya this will be awesome addition, for something like contractor will be working 2 days this week, then only Monday next, and entire week the week after that.
Splitting up tasks would be awesome
hello, is the recurring function now available? how do i delete a member permanently from the project?
Craig Ricker commented
This function would be awesome!
PLEASE add this functionality, it's a realy must have!
The same here. Splitting and recurring tasks are the first things I have missed in teamGantt (just been using it for 1 day).
The best project management software I have seen (not tested – I am not affiliated) looking a bit like Teamgantt is Comindware Project Management. It allow to do recurring tasks. Only drawback from feature list is that it allows to log time but not track it.
Comindware it a bit more expensive (but look a bit better and have more features, it seems), but this recurring task feature is really a lack. I have about 6-8 recurring tasks a week, so I need to create about 90 tasks for only 3 months. :-(
I know it's tuff to develop, support, test etc. Thumbs up for split and recurring tasks as number 1 feature.

This is a big fail... The projects task will become necessarily long because of this... any movement in this feature since Dec. 15?

I just signed up to Team Gantt, pretty disappointing that this feature doesn't exist. Would be nice to split a task over a longer period with some break inbetween, recurring the task would also be a bonus.
Cal Smith commented
Along with this it could offer recurring tasks that must be done to a timeline.

Thanks for that feedback Jon. That's very useful and we'll definitely keep your ideas in mind.

Some answers for you, based on my experience with your site:
1. How would you want percent complete handled? Would you need to track the percent complete of each "phase" on that line?
— I personally find adding "% done" a waste of time. It's a very rough guess at best. Better to discuss progress in team meetings (I suspect most organisations will do). Be interesting to look at your usage stats and see if this is a feature you could kill off...
2) How would resources be assigned? Does each "phase" need to be able to be assigned to different resources or does every phase get the same resource?
— I think default behaviour is that all phases get same resources, then are editable individually.
3) Dependencies could be a bit tricky as well.
— To implement a first version of this could you not treat the phases of a task the same as a whole task, for dependencies? i.e. You can link dependencies mid way through a task. Seems like a compromise users would be OK with given the addition of this functionality.
Not trying to tell you how to suck eggs here, so I hope it's ok that I've said this, but I feel this really would be a key differentiator for you. I spent a couple of months looking a tool like yours to help me plan projects effectively. Yours was the only one that wasn't massively over complex or expect me to estimate hours. The ability to "split tasks" over days is the only thing I've really missed from your competitors (Omni plan, etc).

Shame this isn't on the road map - would be a very useful addition.
AdminNathan (Co-Founder, TeamGantt) commented
Unfortunately, it's still not on our roadmap as of now, but it is something we will continue to consider to for down the road.
How close is teamgantt to making this 'recurring tasks' a feature. As it has been more than 3 years since the initial posting and this feature is something that is very important for us as a start-up trying to use Teamgantt to both structure tasks as well as our weekly calendar. Thanks!
