With the new task system available in Confluence the task system in ad-hoc workflows can be confusing for users. Is there any plans for integrating workflow tasks, so they show up in the Confluence task list?
Would be a nice feature I think, as they will be more visible for users with the inbox notification system.
Our next version of Ad hoc Workflows will include integration with the new notifications added in Confluence 4.3. We are also looking into how best to integrate our tasks with the built in Confluence tasks, but at this point as we want to get Ad hoc Workflows 3.3 out around the end of the month, tasks integration will likely be in a later release.
Can I ask are you using Ad hoc Workflows Tasks as part of the normal workflow process? In other words, do you have tasks in specific workflow states that need to be completed in that state?
Thank you for your swift answer. That sounds great, looking forward to the future features.
We are not currently using the tasks much, as they are not that "visible" when users have to remember to go into the adhoc workflow tasklist to check for tasks. I tried setting up email notifications, and got it to work reasonably well for assigning reviews, but haven't gotten in to work for tasks.
If the reviews and tasks are integrated with the new task system, these tasks will be easier for users to find, as they will show up in a single place rather than users having to relate to two different task systems :) So in short, with the task systems integrated, we would probably use tasks more :)
Ad hoc Workflows 3.3 which has the initial integration was released a few weeks ago with 3.3.1 released last week to fix some issues.
