Thoughts on the Task Manager HOTOSM uses

Posted by malenki on 11 November 2013 in English (English)

This is more a list of issues I don't like on that tool, but whatever:
* It isn't possible to comment a task without marking it in some way. E.g. it would be helpful if others already experienced lacking Aerial Imagery.
* When you take a task which is marked as "done" you can either validate, invalidate or unlock it. No possibility to mark it as "done" again, when you just added some more stuff. Chose "unlock" then
* To mark a task as undone you have to click "validate" and then "invalidate". NOT straightforward.
* When you mark a task either way (done, valid, invalid) there will always be an comment with your nick on it - empty, if you didn't enter anything
* I'd welcome a more homogeneous interface. Why does "unlock" have to be a link not a button? As it is now you oversee it easily.

Since I was told yesterday there is a beta 2.0 of the manager I will have to post thoughts 2.0, too.
But thanks for the link. I hope I'll have some time to request features. :)

Where is 2.0? Couldn't find it on github.

I just wish you could see the task you are working on in JOSM, both visually as a box, and as a link to the website.

Not sure where to find the code, but a running Beta you find here: http://tasksv2.dev.hotosm.org/
And +1 for the visibility of the visible task box. Forgot to mention that one though I had thought several times of that
