Going through and updating status of ideas according to our new way of working. New process works as follows:

1. When you post a new idea that we consider valid, we will label it 'Open to vote for', so that it can be shared with other users and start gathering votes
2. Ideas that are support-related, already exist in some manner or non-implemented ideas that are older than a year and that have not gathered enough votes will be Archived.
3. We keep some older ideas that we think are in line with something we are planning otherwise or that have gathered enough votes.
4. If there are duplication of ideas, we may archive one of them and keep another which can continue to gather votes.
5. Ideas that we are planning to implement will be moved into the category 'Accepted'

Hi Anna,
thanks for your feedback! We are trying to provide a simple yet powerful tool for project planning. This means that we are trying to avoid having too complex functions for holidays and vacations etc. We understand the need of taking weekends into account, but also see it as a first step towards a complexity that we do not want to introduce. Right now this is where we draw the line when it comes to scheduling complexity. Further in the future we might reconsider depending on for example user demands.

Best regards
Ylva

This is ProjectPlaces's largest weakness.

The line of "keeping it simple" does not sit well with me as excluding weekends and holidays is a BASIC feature in many other PM programs.

It would not at all be complex to have a simple option to use a "working calendar" which does not include weekends.

Holidays are a little more complex given every company may follow a different scheduled.

However PLEASE fix the weekends thing. It renders the plan "duration" field useless!
