New way of creating relations!

New way of creating relations!

Yolean: 3.12+

We have implemented a new way to create relations between tasks. This will make it easy for both touchscreen and keyboard and mouse users as seen below.

Use the menu and “Add relation” to create a relation to another task

How to

To create a relation, start by opening the task toolbox and click the “Add relation” button. When you have toggled this button the note will give you information that it is ready to create a relation. Now you simple drag the task to any other highlighted task to finish the relation.

Shortcuts

We have also implemented the Shift key as a fast toggle for relation. If you want to create a relation using shift, just hold the shift key down and drag a task to any highlighted task. The targeted task will indicate that it is ready to receive a task.

Note! If you want to escape this function when already in relation mode simply push the Escape (Esc) button. 

 

Creating sub-tasks

We haven’t changed the way you create sub-tasks. This is still a very efficient way of creating relations when you need to break a task down into many sub-tasks. You can use this function by dragging the task-creator into a highlighted task.

Drag the task-creator into a highlighted task to create sub-tasks more efficiently.

 

Why are we doing this?

In the previous versions of Yolean it would be hard to move or create a task into a cell that was covered by a highlighted task. The new functionality for creating relation made it possible for us to change the regular drag n drop to only target the cell under a highlighted task and not the task itself.

Drag n Drop is passing through other tasks to easier move the task
