    When you use a forum for an association, club, corp or non-profit, it is intended to bring together various members to be able to communicate over the development of internal projects.

    It would be a great feature to have an add-on that is able to manage projects graphically and assign project team leaders as well as project team members to a project as well as assign tasks to different members of the project team and have control over timings and progress.

    So I suggest the add-on has the following features:
    • Integration into the node tree or into specific forums (to be compatible with other add-ons like social groups)
    • Team leader designation (with admin/mod specific rights)
    • Assignment of project team members to specific tasks
    • Visual progress in kind of "progress bars" with percentages
    • Status indication like "brainstorming", "in progress", "completed", "on hold", etc
    • Prioritization of projects/tasks per drag and drop or predefined "priority levels"
    • Calendar function to make timings for tasks and project completion
    • Alerts for project creation and status and task assignment changes
    • Permissions for who can manage, view, join project teams
    • (Nice to have) Presentation page (with view permissions) to let other (non-project-team-) members see where the project currently is at
    • (Advanced) Document management (PDF, Excel, Pics): assign documents to tasks/members and indicate different versions/updates
    • XenForo tags integration
    • And much more I don't know yet...
    Any developer keen to do it? As I would see this add-on in a professional environment I would suggest it has a price tag of around 50.- USD or more per license.

    This is just an idea of which I hope a developer would realize it.

    Sounds like a great add-on, I'd be interested in this too.

    For now I've made a private node in my staff area and use prefixes to adjust the progress which makes it very limited.

    You mean "abducted"? ;)

    Yes looks not bad for a start but my intention would be to have it more sophisticated visually. Including GANTT diagrams and List of tasks and associated users plus progress/status indication. The "Project Tools" seem to have been too "list" like...

    I am working on a simple add-on to handle/track issues more or less like how it's done on github during my free time for gfnlabs.com. :)

    @Mr. Goodie2Shoes From what I saw from you so far, you could be the right one. But it goes beyond issue tracking. Check out apps like ADNX apps - xPlan (of course not this complex but you get the idea)

    Keep an eye on @NixFifty 's ticket system. While it's designed as a helpdesk, it's a ticket system with statuses, priorities and custom fields. So basically it could be used to manage tasks and assign them to staff.

    It doesn't have Events or RM integration.
