Hi Lena,  

Sorry to hear this.  We liked the feature too, that is why we built it!  However our analysis and user feedback has told us that the feature has been confusing to users who do not understand why their tasks where being categorized into the "future" state without them putting it there.

Hope this makes sense.

Hi Lena and Lu,

Just want you to know that we hear your concerns.  We are determined to create a system that is 
easy for everyone to stay organized with.  At the moment you are unfortunately a minority on this feature but we welcome feedback from the rest of the community.  In the meantime I will look into a feature that allows you to Sort your lists by task start date (currently you can Sort alphabetically, by priority and by due date). 

Thanks for your understanding.

Ben

Thank you all for your input.  It is great to have passionate users, and it is extremely helpful to know what they care about and why.  I will continue to gather data and user feedback on this topic.

In the meantime, I would love a chance to learn more about how you are using ProjectDirector and share some features ideas that may address your needs.  Please send me an email at ben.work@mindjet.com so we can continue these conversations.  

Thank you in advance for your time, and your help.
