We completely agree with all of your points above.
The task system was our first ever feature released (our foot out the door) over a year ago now. Since then our team has both skilled up and grown and we are all very aware internally that the task system is currently not up to snuff!
We have a lot on at the moment with #14 and our native mobile app for iOS just launching but this is high on our internal list for reworking. I’m going to target Q3 this year but we might be able to squeeze it into Q2 if things go very well with your upcoming insurance product! *still not fully announced.
Calling out specifically to your features. I think we have all of them covered in our plans except for the estimated cost functionality. This is actually really interesting for two reasons:
1.) Part of the task upgrade is to give it some more fields, some search and filter functionality etc (as you’ve requested), the other part is we are currently exploring how best to incorporate tasks into the history file, as a sort of upcoming entry, which would then convert into an entry when the task is completed (at the users choice). If you had estimated costs you could potentially have a expectations vs reality calculation.
2.) The second is that many people are asking for a way to have an overview of all their cars, a sort of cost of ownership dashboard, a digital instrument cluster if you will 😅. Your suggestion here around estimated future costings could be really cool if we could tie it into some sort of ‘upcoming/projected costs’.
Such a good idea Michael!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write the above, it really helps us build the software out in the right direction for the community! We’re still a small team so it takes some time but we will get there with the help of people like yourself!
If you think I’ve missed anything and/or want to add any other tidbits, please do let us know!
