Just some things I noticed quickly. Some kind of progress or status bar could be added when doing an import. I've imported a CSV I exported from Jira and it just seems to be continuously importing with no idea on the status of it (how long is left, is it even still importing or has something gone wrong?)
Also when using the select box for the "Field Type" in the field properties pop up, the list is going below my screen and I cannot see the bottom items in that list.
Are you still having trouble with the fields?
If you just make the browser window small it will happen.
Feature Request: Sub-tasks
The first interface I use to create tasks is always an outliner, that way I can quickly breakdown everything that needs to be done and add details about their implementation. This is close to mindmaps as shown in your demo, but a text based outliner is faster to type, edit, rearrange in. Having Subtasks would allow an approximation of this.
Also, please start charging for it.
* Mega List View: Collections are great! But sometimes I like to see all the things and feel overwhelmed. I can do this in search for tags (search "in progress") but a combined collection list would be cool.
* Data Export: Sometimes I want to export my list, like if I'm traveling without internet for a week but would like to still work on things. A .CSV, .MD, or something text based would be nice.
* Webhooks: I'd like to post to a slack channel when a task is done
* Assignment of tasks (not collections): I have a collection with a lot of tasks, but want to assign a specific task to an employee without them seeing all the collection tasks. Perhaps an 'assigned to me' board? Or maybe I can link a task to a different collection?
Price: we'll use a freemium model, starting in Q1 2017. Pricing will be similar to other tools in the market.
Trello/imports from other apps: we have one click imports for Trello and Wunderlist, & working on more. We're also in beta with Zapier. You can see our Trello comparison here: zenkit.com/trello
Unstable/Problems registering: sorry to hear there are issues here! HN was pretty unexpected :) we'd be happy to fix this on a case by case basis. Please send us a short note to firstname.lastname@example.org with your username / registration email.
API/webhooks: we're working on publishing our API and we hooks. We'll make them public as soon as we release our iOS app at the end of this year.
Localization : support for more languages coming in Q1-2 2017!
Tutorials/onboarding: we're releasing videos in the next week or two. Again, HN was unexpected :D
Feature requests : thank you so much for your requests! We're taking note and will definitely keep everyone updated with new features. (we've already got a lot of great stuff in the pipeline!)
Feel free to get in touch via email if you want to chat!
I'll happily use it for free, of course, but it seems like value is being given away without a compelling reason.
Most business people get that our vendors have to pay to keep the lights on. Because this product enhances productivity, I doubt many business people would decide not to use this product, simply because it's paid. If so, they're probably not going to be in business long anyway.
Once you get used to it and have all your people people of your recently created team using it as well, once you grow over the free threshold, you will most likely pay. In the long run I see freemium as better option.
14 day free trial usually drives me away from really trying the application, I may not have enough time to really see if this tool fits my team's need and I don't want to pay for something I don't use that much yet, no matter how small the amount.
Given the above, I would love to integrate these calendars with some Zenkit API instead. I see a 'Generate new API key' option in settings, but cannot find any API docs anywhere. Is API access going to be free? Please at least allow it for students. :)
You are right. We have not published our API yet. We use this API to connect to Zapier. I would be happy give you early access. Please email me.
BTW: If you needed one day for implementing something like this: We are hiring! ;)
Also, keyboard shortcuts.
Looks very cool from an initial play!
BTW, we are on Producthunt today and we have some other interesting comments there..
- It'd be really nice to see a weekly view of the calendar because I can't see more than 3 things at once on a day.
- After about 30 minutes of leaving the page open the drag-and-drop functionality on the calendar breaks and my browser (Chrome) thinks I'm trying to drag a link around.
- Marking things as complete is an absolute necessity here. Most individual users will be using this as an advanced task list. Trello just added this functionality, so it would be good timing and help keep them from getting an upper-hand here.
In general it's an awesome idea. Let people view their data in the form they want and let them track what they want. However the interface is a bit sluggish. If all of the inputs were live inputs (actual input tags, not elements you click on and then get processed and turned into inputs) it would probably feel much more responsive.
Also, it would be cool if there was a way of marking a task "done" and removing it right in the list view. A keyboard shortcut to archive might be nice, I suppose.
Edit: Table view + New field with "tags" type solved the first problem to a great extent.
Re: marking done and archiving - we're working on dependencies & automation, so it'll be possible soon!
Update: I can cut and paste the policy and TOS urls and they work in a different browser window. For some reason, when I am at the registration page for the beta and I click these links at the bottom it sends me to a login page.
I assume you were not ready for HN #1 traffic, as I registered to start using on a real project of mine but faced some hiccups along the way of creating my own collection. I was able to create it and edit the settings, but right now as I try to access my recently created collection I only get: "Something went wrong, sorry about that! If this happens again, please let us know."
I will try later and I am in no hurry, but you should try to fix it asap. I logged in with the email on my profile if you need to check my specific case.
Regarding the calendar, I'm having the same problem - 4 of my tasks are showing up correct, but 3 are showing up on the wrong date as gray bars. I will send a screenshot and more details to that email address.
It should be easy for people to host their own data.
Have imported one of my organisations and will work with a bit to see how this works out. The first thing that jumps out at me is the lack of Markdown support in the descriptions.
Also, why is there no select field / list option for custom fields?
What do you mean exactly by select field/list option? Do you mean select all items in a list in kanban?
That said I've used a labels custom field for my use case but I still think a dropdown list would have some merit.
By the way vertical/horizontal grouping in the Kanban options are superb. Really great idea.
And, putting data in multiple places means extra time and money managing it. Generally.
I really would like to see a merge of features between Zenkit and Trello.
If Zenkit keeps my Kanban synchronized with Trello, it's already possible to me use it. I haven't found yet if it has this feature.
select * from "strucd_users_emails" where "email" = $1 and "deprecated_at" is null - Connection terminated
I registered and am getting a lot of retrys and worker job time outs.
I'll try again later tonight.
Would be nice if it had localization support so I can use it with my non-english speaking colleagues.
When I receive such an email I always open it on my mobile.
Right now you end up on a page saying that the current device width is not supported.
Edit: It seem that my account was authorized even if only an error message was displayed.
Write text, then hit SHIFT+HOME it does not select the text.
Tried it in Firefox and Chrome.
