    Intervals seems to be a superior product. Good work!

    One question: In addition to working on web design projects, a substantial amount of our work is in the form of relatively small updates to existing sites. Those updates could often be described by a single task, and might often be submitted to Intervals through the request queue. Does assignment of the new task require creation of a new project? If so, is there an easy method to create the new project, associate the task with the project, and assign the task all in one step?

    The apparent method of converting the 'task request' to an active task would require a number of steps and navigation to several sections of the Intervals system: An administrator would need to 1) note the request, then 2) go to "Projects" to create a new projects, then 3) return to the request queue to associate the task with the project, and assign it.

    It will be excellent if there is a simple process to convert a 'task request' to a new project with single task in a single step.

    Thanks!

    Tasks being assigned from the queue can be assigned to existing projects. If the project does not exist, then it would need to be created first. However, once created, the request queue is the quickest way to fire off tasks and assign them in Intervals. Requests can also be appended to existing tasks. So if a request comes in that applies to an existing task, it can simply be appended.

    As for the option to create the new task along with a new project in once single step, we'll take a look into that. I don't know that this type of request has come up before, but we'll certainly throw it around and see if it sticks.
