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

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.
