Usage / Components


~~TASK:[user]?[due date][priority]~~
[user] person responsible for this task – either user or full name optional; default is unassigned
[due date] date the task should be completed in YYYY-MM-DD form; if only year or year and month are given, the last day is assumed optional; default is without due date
[priority] low, medium !, high !! or critical !!! expressed with 0 to 3 exclamation marks optional; default is low priority

Place ~~TASK~~ on any page to mark it as a task. The title (first heading) is considered to be the summary of the task, the contents its description. For every task, there is a new page needed.

If a task is unassigned, any registered user of the wiki can accept it. Once a task is taken, the user to whom it is assigned to can change the status of the task to one of these values:

  • rejected – task is not worthwhile or not accepted by user
  • new – reassign task so somebody else can take it
  • accepted – user took over task but did not yet start the work
  • started – work on task started
  • done – work on task completed

If the task is done, other users can verify whether it's really done. If yes, the status can be set to verified.

The priority is reflected by the intensity of the orange shade of the task box.

Next to the title of the task box is an icon. It links to download an .ics file for the task. That can be imported by almost any calendar application that understands the VTODO component of the iCalendar standard.
