#261 Tasks outline numbered

Elio Voci

Automatic outline numbering is essential when dealing
with large number of tasks which should be referenced
in other narrative (reports, budget, etc.)

    It seems to me that they are several problems :
    - the task ID can be viewed and exported (CSV) but is not
    - for the moment there is no option to output into graphic
    report anything else than the task name, it is a necessary
    - when you export with CSV the ID is given but the task
    appears in disorder int othis file so as the display number
    of line (outline number) is not a data of the item, so it is
    impossible to make an external list in the same order than
    outline without re-associating manually this outline number
    which can change at any time and needs to be redone each
    time (a lot of work)

    My solution is for the moment :
    - export CSV and manage with excel a list sorted in the ID
    order with all data need, custom as description, remarks,
    progress comments, budget etc...
    - when I need an excel report sorted in the same order than
    the graphic I create form the gantt display a list of ID.
    Just get the IDs in the graphic order and number the line,
    sort with excel by ID, copy to CSV file - sorted too by ID
    and generate Excel report. If need be I get too the
    hirarchical level and use it to generate by VBA program an
    outline into excel. Ir is sure that it is a lot of work.
    So this description will give all useful information to the
    GanttProject team to identify need and optimized solution.

    I too test and be quite successfull in exporting .gam (XML)
    to mysql database and convert to others.

    I agree. Even sequential-numbered would be acceptable. For me this is the one missing feature that prevents me from using GanttProject.
