Had an idea:
Off-screen progress bars
It would be nice to have progress bars showing crafting/disassembly/etc progress(exactly the same as the existing progress bars that show up around where a character is making an action.) on the profile panel at the top of the screen, so you can watch the progress of characters when they’re off screen. This would be in addition to the already-existing progress bars, just so you can see progress while the character you’re wanting to check on isn’t onscreen, without having to scroll to them. Or maybe just a “busy/not busy” icon, if that’s easier to fit into the existing UI.
