Charts Problems

Hello Timelime,

I have been testing the app today, and one important point for me and my team keep using Timelime is to correct the chart legends.

1 - First picture shows my tasks and subtasks
2 - Second picture shows the chart inferring the wrong legends (I suppose that what the pie chart is trying to show is: subtasks on pie and tasks on legends below, right?)

    Hi Joao,

    Looking at the screenshots you sent, everything looks how it is supposed to be.

    In the task list you have the tasks expanded, so it is showing the subtasks in the chart.
    The legend is showing the task names that don’t fit right next to the pie chart slices.

    Did you expect different behavior?

    Hi Niko!

    Thank you for the reply.

    Yes, actually I was expecting a chart with tasks and subtasks view.


    Chart pie: subtasks and time
    - here is fine

    Legends below (consolidated subtasks on a same category): tasks and time
    - here we dont have a quick "R&S" consolidation for instance

    One more thing: can I attached a pdf file to a specific tasks or subtask?

    Hi João,

    Sorry for the late reply!

    Unfortunately there is currently no way to attach a PDF file to a task.

    However, I am thinking about adding a similar feature in a future update:
    When you drag&drop a file in the task description field (select task -> “Get Info”), a link will appear that links to the file in Finder.

    Would this be helpful for you?
