I would like to propose a redesign of the projects board in order to show each project individually as card. The below screenshot is a proof a concept.

For each project, the following information are shown:
  1. if the current user is a member of the project (already exists)
  2. if the project is bookmarked or not
  3. actions dropdown
  4. short description (already exists)
  5. first "x" project members
Further more, having each project as card, we can do multiple improvements in the future. I'm thinking now to:
  1. Allow users to customise the information displayed on the cards
  2. Improved actions dropdown to include "Go to <project tab>", "Add new <item>"

Any feedback is welcome.

Looks much nicer than the current projects page! But I have some concerns.

  • I think the list of project members is unnecessary because it can be very long
  • It does not express parent-child projects relations

Overall I find cards a very pleasing and convenient way to show more information about projects to the user and I would highly appreciate it.

Things I can imagine right now are:

- Last time of activity on issues
- Count of open issues plus signaling overdue issues
- Count of open versions plus signaling overdue versions
- Progress and date of the next due version
- Estimated and spent time
- Count of members
- Your roles on the project if involved

Since the project description can take a huge amount of space, which cards doesn't have I would prefer to move it in a modal and just have an icon one can click on.

I share Go's opinion on he members list. I don't think it's necessary to show the avatars but the actual count of members in a project could be quite useful, sometimes. It would be great to have a button like Subprojects: 5 which redirects you to the appropriate filtered query. In this case it's like navigating a folder structure.

IMHO this could be an awesome way to get an overview of all your projects at a glance.
