Due Dates on Tasks - Lock or Record Changes in History

Currently, when you assign a Task in InSightly you can set a Due Date for the task, but you can't lock it.

  • The user who is assigned the task can change the Due Date.
  • When the user changes the Due Date of their Task, there is no record of this in the History.

This allows users to silently change the Due Dates on their tasks which makes it difficult to assess individual performance and assess where bottlenecks are in the pipeline.

So, I'd like to make a feature request:

  • Please write any changes in a task due date into a read-only part of the Task Comments (or elsewhere).

  • If possible, enable a feature where Admins (or people assigning tasks) can lock the Due Dates of tasks.

Thanks!

  • Agree, further ...a field doesn't exist for a task that logs the date completed.     Just flipping the status to completed doesn't give us needed data. 

    I'd like to know when a task was DUE and when it was DONE...exactly dates.

  • This is an imperative feature. There's no accountability if people can just push the deadlines out or make the record look likes it is a newer request than it is. Thanks for the request.

  • I totally agree that this needs to be added. We have to know when due dates are changed.

  • Glad to see there is support for this idea. Hopefully more users will chime in and request it too.

  • Is there any update on this perhaps? This is a basic thing and regarding the fact that you already have a recorded history of Recent Activity in seems it should not be a big task to log this info as well.
