Create a task to track the work performed on a content item (page) in the repository. After creating the task, users can open the associated content from the WCM Inbox. (See Working With Tasks.)
Assign a task to the user that should perform the work. When assigned a task, the task appears in the user's Workflow inbox. You can also assign a task to a group. The task appears in the inbox of each user in the group so that any group member can perform the work.
Specify the priority of the task and the deadline for completing the task.
Tasks can have a status of Created or Completed:
- Created: The task is created and appears in the user's inbox. With this status, all content changes are logged.
- Completed: The user has performed the work on the content. The user sets this status manually upon completing the work. With this status, content changes are no longer logged.
Create a heirarchy of tasks to represent task dependencies. Add a task as the child of another task to indicate that the parent depends on the child. The task tree provides a visual representation of task dependency. Dependencies are not enforced, so that parent tasks can be completed before child tasks are completed.
Note: If you are archiving tasks, do not complete parent tasks until all subtasks are complete. See Archiving Tasks.
Select the parent folder of the task to see the details in the right-hand panel.
