How to add a user specific task report to confluence dashboard

Hi all,

I would love to integrate a task report for the logged in user on top of the update stream (like the ad hoc workflow tasks).

In the comments of https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Customising+the+Confluence+Dashboard there is a way you should be able to do this with global layout. But velocity is not my strongest discipline ...

Does anybody know how I would do that in conflunence 5.5.3?

Thanks for any hints on that.

Greetings

Reto E.

We have implemented it like follows:

<div class="dashboard-group right wiki-content">
                    $helper.renderConfluenceMacro("{mytasks}")
                    <a href="http://confluence/plugins/inlinetasks/mytasks.action">Show all my tasks</a>
                    <br></br>
                    $helper.renderConfluenceMacro("{recently-updated-dashboard:showProfilePic=true}")
                </div>## right

 

Works, but:

  • Only the first tasks appear.
  • Dates doesn't get highlight if near due date.
  • You can't tick the check boxes.

Please read this comment on /DOC/Customising the Confluence Dashboard by Richard Smith.

It be massivly easier and sustainable to create page in Confluenece and then Include it in the Confluence GUI. What I don't know how to do is show the tasks of the current viewer of the dashboard.

Since there is the tasks page in the user menu, I thougt there might be an easy way to include this function in the dashboard.

How to use Confluence Cloud for stakeholder management

Most of us don’t need much convincing that stakeholder management is important. It just makes sense that keeping everyone in-the-know on projects and assigning clearly defined roles is key to having ...
