Allow a user to "pin" one or more tasks in place as well as "lock" the task viewer in place
It would great if a user could pin multiple tasks in place on the screen so he could see the task name as well as maybe the "schedule" details and notes associated with it. He could then click on the task, which would expand it.
It would also be great if you could lock the "task viewer" so it didn't close when you clicked off of it. This would enable users the freedom to further customize their layout without having to pin tasks that don't change.
