Milestone Start Date / End Date to Show on Task List

Hi

First of all, I must say that the software is extremely useful especially with the additional plugins that we had installed.

One simple feature we would like to request is to be able to see the Milestone's Start Date and End Date when we are entering the Task under the Milestones in the Tasklist.

This is avoid mistakes of putting a task start/end date before/after the start/end date of the Milestone as the Tasks are child to the parent Milestone.

A simple PHP script to show the Milestone Start / End Date next to the Milestone name in the Tasklist would be very useful (see attached screen shot).

Currently, we have to go back to the Milestone page to check what is the Start/End Date when we key in the Task under the Tasklist.

This is time-consuming if we have multiple tasks under the same Milestone. Of course we can write the Start/End date on a piece of paper....but that will be a different discussion......

Thanks

I like to +1 this feature request..

its a real downside this is not implemented.
in my opinion there would be extended functionality to it:

- when u enter a new task the dates are copied from the milestone u are creating the task for.
- when u move the dates for the milestone u can put a checkbox to move all the dates of the tasks also.

@ my company we use SAP for the majority of things.
i run quite a few projects that i want simpeler tools for.. like this one!

me and my project members like the tool, but the few shortcomings are yet to be spoken of.
after finishing 1 project with collabtive we consider to contact the authors to customize stuff and buy all the plugins, or try the next software package and compare to collabtive.
releasing a few "bugs"/feature requests will make the dicission easier to stay with collabtive, buy the plugins and get in contact for the customisations..

let us be surprised :)
