  • Needed for developers

    I find it annoying that I cant store some notes somewhere when I am working on my application. As a developer I would love to store notes where I am with coding
    and why I chose for certain solutions. I know I can dump this all in php comments but then there is no simple overview. So I vote for a NOTES option per application.
    When there are only comments in the php you quickly have to put comments in non used events, why for example an event is not used instead of another event or so.. Hence no overview..

    I hope other people agree with me on this.

      Agree

      rr can you not use the new SC To Do List for that? It's probably better more for Notes than the TO DO's it's designed for, in my opinion.

      I would suggest NetMake repurpose the new To Do Tool to a "Notes" tool, and then implement the following for actual To Do's....

      I think something like a TODO directive other IDEs use so you can see them in a panel (that you can collapse or open, and if open is viewable wherever you are in the app whether in an editor or not).

      The new SC8 TO DO is okay but not very practical for quick brain dumps / reminders - what would be better is if the SC editor allowed you to enter a line like //TODO (so it looks like a comment), the aforementioned panel dynamically lists all TODOs in all events in all apps. The listed TODO shows the app and event it is in and the start of the TODO text. It should also be clickable taking you straight to that point in the relevant event in the relevant app.

      :-) Just a thought

        Hello,

        As adz1111 suggested, does the new To Do List feature meets your requirements? If not, in which way could it be improved?

        regards,

          No the todo list is not a place to store project development notes. It's a work-around or misuse as we say.

              bartho, this is not a bug
              rr is right, also adz is right, Albert talks correct overall.... i see the notes part is important as well, that is why you should have a portal for bugs and suggestions, to see how people are voting and make priorities

              @Albert, didn't you yet hate this word? "Workaround" because I hate it already !

                  I would never react this way to my users. They get a ticket number and the issue will be solved and reported back. But I run Mantis for my customers.

                    Hey rr.
                    Theres a tool called Helpcase (wich is being renewed).
                    There is the proper place to document your system, your choices, how things works and why.
                    Regards,

                      Cavadinha, are you serious? The helpcase tool is intended to store a helpfile for end-users. I don't want to bother them with developer notes.

                        Albert, I think Cavadinha thought to document stuff for end-users. rr means to add internal notes for his own... i see in coding that can be added as // or /* */ but for me i do keep simple txt file in the project folder on my PC

                        moreover, i think to-do list can be improved and named something else, to have 1- to-do list and to have 2- notes of development in the same place, as the to-do list is already designed for project-based scenario...

                          What I meant is notes so that my colleagues can also see what I did, and so that we both can add to it. Sometimes certain choices are very intricate and need explanation. I dont recall all my choices I did months ago.
                          And we can put some but reports in it, and what we have updated (version info) and why etc...
                          So this would make it usefull for us. A to do list is all fine but insufficient. And we are still partly on scriptcase 7 so it needs to be in 8 before we are going full blown version 8 (if the major bugs are fixed)...

                            Oh, actually I meant that.
                            I've seen system that used that (before the To Do).

                            They had importants parts of the systems there for the end-users, but also a hidden "developer_notes" folder with files that described the most critical applications, plus some "how" and "why" for clarification.
                            It may seems another workaround, but as I said, helpcase is being renewed.
