WP Project Manager is now a one-page app that loads instantly and gives you a smooth experience. This time around, we thought why not improve the way it looks. Thus, our team started working on to find a new design that can accommodate all the features and also gives ease of use.

Our Product Design team worked hard to come up with an excellent mockup that would completely change the way it looked before. And interestingly, it won't conflict with any of the previous functionalities. Adding more to that, our users will get some amazing new features in the process as well!

Considering all these and also the way we manage our project with the help of our very own project manager, we dreamed of a perfect project management solution. This guided our team to make this recent changes in functionalities and also design.

Today, we are going to give you an overview of what is coming in terms of design and user experience. So, have a look into the things we are up to.

Stylish Project List Page with Filter Options

When it comes to managing projects, many things need strict consideration. For example, organizing projects and managing them from a single place. Besides that, finding important things quickly really matter for an efficient workflow.

Thus, we tried to make the Project list page as much lucrative as possible. You will get a quick overview of every project including, their name, category, short description, stats (tasks, members, files, discussions) and also the progress so far. You might also get to mark projects as favorite to find them easily when needed!

Also, there will be advaced filtering options. It will let you filter your projects based on their status, category, member, client etc.

Task Lists Page

The task lists page is as important as the project page. You will get to view a quick overview of each task list. Also, adding a task list or task in so convinient that you won't have to click any button or navigate to another page. Besides that, you will get filtering option for your tasks as well.

Quick Task Actions

With this new design, you will be able to access quick options for each of your tasks. That means there will be options to edit any task on the fly. With it, you will be able to –

  • Mark tasks as complete
  • Duplicate tasks
  • Mark tasks as private
  • Move tasks from one list to another
  • Archive and delete tasks

Single Task Page

The new single task page is neat and will give you all the options and features that you will ever need. You will get all relevant and important information. Add team members easily, add a description, including subtasks, discuss and also get an activity log.

Even assigning team members to a task looks amazing!

Single Task Options

You will get options to manage your single tasks on the fly as well. You can edit, copy the link, duplicate task, move it to another list, archive and delete it anytime you want.

Task Priority

The new version will give you the opportunity of prioritizing your task as Normal, Low and High.

    What actually is “Pused” though? You mean “Paused” right?

    When will this new design be released?

    I’d like to see option to enter time estimate per task. With comparison to actual time. When task is marked complete, we can see estimate vs. actual.

    Also, it would be nice to close the single task page by clicking on the background. For mobile, move the close icon onto the task screen rather than outside. this way, we get full screen on mobile for single task view.

      Hi larry,

      WP Project Manager team is working on it. I cannot tell you the exact date, but it is being developed currently.

      And thank you very much for your suggestions. I have forwarded them to the development team. I would also like to see these features as they are very important while managing projects.

      Cheers ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi there, will this new design be reflected in the frontend access also? Also can one setup their own status types. For example right now in the screenshot here: https://cdn.wedevs.com/uploads/2018/09/Simple-List-Style-Task-List-Page-Design.png I see a status type of Completed, Paused, On-Going and cancelled. I need to setup up my own naming here for statuses – can this be done? For example I want to setup “Started”, “In-Progress”, “completed”, “cancelled”, and “rescheduled”. is this possible to have your own custom statuses? Thanks

      Hi there,

      Thanks for your queries. Well, currently there is no option inside the settings to change those texts. However, you can edit them using localized files – .PO, .MO files. For more information on how to do this, you can contact the support team.

      Also, in the future, there will be options to edit these texts. I have forwarded this feature suggestion to the development team.

      Cheers ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi there, I have noticed that on certain tabs of the project manager plugin in V2.0 the headline name is h1 and on other tabs its h2. As you can appreciate on my site I have always setup the titles of my theme and pages to be h1 which is going to be bigger font size than say h2.

    So to highlight the issue on the first page of the plugin its h2 and then on the second categories page its h1 as you can see here in this video: http://recordit.co/rKMQSdzqvL

    Obviously the categories h1 title is massive and I can change this on my theme but of course nobody wants their h1 titles to be the same size as the h2 titles.

    So can all titles in this plugin please be set to h2 or at least the same type of H for each tab? is this fixed in the new version you are describing in this post here? Thanks

      Hi Again,

      We haven’t implemented all the designs yet. We are putting them one by one with each new release. So, this issue will be fixed in the upcoming updates. You can also discuss this with the support team in detail.

    Hi there, Can I ask if there is speed improvements in the new version of the plugin due to these design changes? Also do you have any screenshots of how this looks in the frontend of the website? Thanks

      Hi James,

      We are planning to bring a more robust and improved frontend design.

      As it is a single page application, the speed will not be affected by the design.

      PS. The frontend supports the new UI as well ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks

      Hi jamesosullivan1,

      I am sorry for giving you an wrong info. The design will work on the Frontend as well.

      Thank You ๐Ÿ™‚

    When is this new update coming? I am using version 2.0.8 for the last number of weeks and was told that the update for this plugin should have been released last week via the support ticket area. Is it out shortly?

      Hi jamesosullivan1,

      All of these changes will not come in a single release, we are gradually adding them with each update.

      Our team was on Annual retreat in the last week. So, the update was little delayed. Hopefully, it will be released today.

      Cheers ๐Ÿ™‚

    If the frontend is not going to be udpated with the new design, then when is it going to be updated? By the way, it looks awesome but we don’t give ( as I would assume most don’t) backend access to our users so until the frontend gets the update, we will not be taking advantage of the backend redesign. Just wondering if there are others that do not allow backend access on their sites.

    Do you know if the ability to schedule reminders for tasks is coming soon? end of the year? next year?

    Either way, it looks great and I hope the front end looks as great and/or plays nice with other site templates.

      Hi sergio4,

      This new UI is designed especially for the backend, but luckily it will work on Frontend too.

      We are working on a more robust premium Frontend design as well. It will take some time, but it will be available soon. I cannot give an exact date. Please bear with us until the announcement comes. I guarantee you will love the frontend design that we are working on tirelessly.

      Cheers ๐Ÿ™‚
