Task Management in Confluence

I am looking for some ways to replace TaskDoc functionality in Confluence.

I tried tasklist macro but this is too basic. There is Adhoc workflow but this beyond task management.

I need a way to assign tasks within pages and manage assignees, due dates, etc. in a centralized fashion.

Thank you,

Hi Adolfo

I would recommend using:

Note that the Tasklist Supplier Plugin is not compatible with Confluence 4 / 4.1 but it's easy to fix.
If you want I can mail you a fixed version (compiled jar file) of the Tasklist Supplier Plugin...

The Reporting Plugin is also not marked compatible with Confluence 4 / 4.1 but: It just works...

Finally you can make neat reports of all tasks assigned to you (in all tasklists all over the wiki...) just like:

{report-table:injected=true}
{expanding-reporter:tasklist:@all|as=task}
  {content-reporter:space=@global|types=page}
  {content-reporter}
  {date-sort:task:created date}
  {boolean-filter:task:is completed|value=false}
  {boolean-filter:task:is assignee @self|value=true}
{expanding-reporter}
{report-column:title=My Tasks}%expanded:task > task:name%
{report-info:expanded:item|link=true}{report-column}
{report-column:title=Priority}%expanded:task > task:priority%{report-column}
{report-column:title=Created}%expanded:task > task:created date > d.MM.yyyy%{report-column}
{report-empty}_No personal, open Tasks existing._{report-empty}
{report-table}

Of course you can make various other reports too...

I hope this helps and perhabs you like to try it out...

Cheers, Philipp

I just mailed it to your gmail address.

I will give a try. I am with v 3.5 now, but plannning to move to 4.X soon. I'd appreciate if you can email me that jar.

Thank you.

Hi,

I would be very grateful if you could mail me the jar as well?

Thank You.

Cant't guess your email address.

If you would like to have the jar file please email me (philipp dot klauser at bitvoodoo dot ch).

Thanks, Philpp

There are quite some people interested in this patched "Tasklist Supplier Plugin" as I notice.

Therefore I provide the Plugin under this Link:

I hope this helps implementing Task Management in Confluence!

Cheers,

Hi Adolfo,

why don't you use Jira ?

Assigning tasks, manage assignees, due dates... looks like Jira ;-)

Best regards

Thomas

I know that Jira and Confluence integrate very well now, but We would like to keep it under the context of Confluence only.

Do you find non-technical staff receptive to JIRA? It seems a bit geeky and more of a tool for software developers than general business users!

Are you trying to due this in regards to people working on pages, e.g. create page, review page workflowish, or are you more into issue-management like @Thomas mentions?

It's about people working on pages (i.e. editing, commenting). Taskdoc was perfect fit for this, but unfortunately it was discontinued last year.

Hi Guys,

Could you please advice how to change default fields (for example, 'Priority', 'Assign to' etc) to other ones?

Is it possible to delete them at all and add new ones?

Thanks,

Victoria
