To be honest, I have never seen a ticket/task system without ticket numbers. How to reference to a ticket in a discussions, mails, etc? Thats really anoying. Is there a way to add automatically generated/incrementing ticket numbers to a tasks?

    Hi @Bernhard Hoermann and welcome to the community 👋🙂

    As MeisterTask is normally a tool for Project- and task management, it has no ticket numbers implemented like in a ticket-system. Do you want to build a support-system?

    I find your question very interesting and highly recommend writing a feature request for such an implementation. I'd definitely support you with my vote 👍️

    Best, Jörg

    Thanks for feedback.

    I am a developer working for different projects (and using other tools like jira, youtrack, etc.). One of my customer is using MeisterTask for all purposes. As a developer, I want to reference tickets/tasks in git commits, in code documentation, etc. But there are a lot of other use cases for this. For example in timesheets or invoices (for exmple "took me 5 hours = X€ for task 4711) or even just in meetings ("as mentioned in ticket 4711, there is a problem…").

    For example, we had a Teams Meeting this week discussing the tasks for this week. Someone was starting to talk about a Tasks and I asked him which one he means (we have a lot of tasks). He said in Column XY the 10th from above… Seriously?
