Tasks management for Plone.

Project Description

Tasks management for Plone.

This package provides:

  • a new content type called task
  • a task behavior, with the same fields as a task
  • a fielset task behavior, with the same fields as a task
  • a task container behavior, just providing a marker interface

A task has the following fields:

  • a task description: richtext field.
  • an assigned group: vocabulary of plone groups (can be redefined). Master field for assigned user
  • an assigned user: vocabulary of plone users. Slave field of selected assigned group.
  • an enquirer: user proposing the task (authenticated user by default)
  • a due date

Assigned group and assigned user are local role fields (dexterity.localrolesfield). This last product permits to configure (on a dexterity type) the local roles to give on each workflow state, to the selected principal of each role field on the object.

The default workflow for a task contains the following states:

  • created (initial state)
  • to assign
  • to do
  • in progress
  • realized
  • closed

From the created state, you can choose the transition “to do”. There are 2 cases:

  • if an assigned user is already selected, an auto transition passes to “to do” state
  • if no assigned user is selected, a reviewer must choose one and manually pass to “to do” state

This add-on is tested using Travis CI. The current status of the add-on is :



3.0 (2017-05-30)

  • Modified enquirer field to be LocalRoleField. Use overridable vocabulary. [sgeulette]
  • Added parents_assigned_groups and parents_enquirers field to manage parents rights [sgeulette]
  • Block local roles on task content [sgeulette]
  • Added special index value for empty field. [sgeulette]
  • Use Owner role in workflow [sgeulette]

2.5 (2016-12-07)

  • Set initial_trigger to true. [sgeulette]

2.4 (2016-06-22)

  • Add a get_full_tree_title method returning the path title of a task until its parent container. [fngaha]

2.3 (2016-04-15)

  • Adapted ITask to add method getting the highest parent. [sgeulette]
  • Colorize states [sgeulette]
  • Add icons for transitions [sgeulette]
  • Add viewlet displaying task parents [sgeulette]

2.2.1 (2016-01-13)

  • Modify a copy of the field. [sgeulette]

2.2 (2015-11-24)

  • Added TaskContainer related search utility [sgeulette]
  • Added task content interface to differentiate from behavior [sgeulette]
  • Added task_description field [sgeulette]
  • Added assigned_group and due_date indexes. Added indexer methods avoiding acquisition for children. Do not store None in catalog [sgeulette]
  • Added assigned_group default value. default_value decorator didn’t worked. Schema defaultFactory is used but is called also in view mode when field is None and can’t be less easily overrided ! [sgeulette]
  • Changed workflow to use ‘Request review’ guard permission to differentiate Reviewer and editor transitions (like in plone workflows) [sgeulette]
  • Added item_view as default: use simple item view on task content [sgeulette]
