Feature Request: How to see who's working on what NOW

We choose FogBugz for managing our software development process for a small team (14 members currently).

However it has a huge convenience hole: there is no way to find out who is currently working on what!

So I see a long list of "Active" cases, and each colleague tracks his time using "working on" feature but I have to use internal Jabber and bother him with a simple and dumb question:

"Mike, what are you working on now?"

I walk through this forum and find that people ask for this feature since 2007 (for the last two years). Here: http://support.fogcreek.com/default.asp?fogbugz.4.18867.2
And here: http://support.fogcreek.com/default.asp?fogbugz.4.21968.2
http://support.fogcreek.com/default.asp?fogbugz.4.23298.7
http://support.fogcreek.com/default.asp?fogbugz.4.27221.4
And there: http://support.fogcreek.com/default.asp?fogbugz.4.24491.1

Now we have the FogBugz 7 recently released. Can you please describe, what is the reason of NOT implementing this simple and demanded feature?

Thanks.

You can also use the URL Trigger plug-in to trigger outside events on the TimeInterval Added event, for integration with outside systems.

We have one customer who uses this plug-in and a Jabber bot to change his developer's GChat status lines to what they're working on whenever they change working on.

Thank you Michael,
And sorry, this is definitely not what I'm asking about.

This third-party plugin provides a report, not additional list view ability. There is no reason to use such kind of steam hammer to crack nuts.

Rich,
Thank you, may be URL trigger to my custom web aplication or widget is a good solution. Unfortunately URL Trigger not works for On Demand version.

This sounds like a nice feature for my new FNN plug-in. I think I'll add that into it.

Thanks, John!

There are still security issues to be surmounted with URL trigger on FogBugz On Demand.  We're very keen to get this enabled, though.

The plug-in is now available with this feature: http://www.fogcreek.com/FogBugz/Plugins/plugin.aspx?ixPlugin=22


Can someone mark it completed in Uservoice so I can get my votes back?

John,
I'm not sure - can this plugin work with OnDemand?

@John Fuex
Wow, your plugin is extremely useful, and this is definitely what I'm looking for.

Send you some thoughts about plugin improvement right now.
