Tasks plugin v1.1

Release Notes


Fixes and Enhancements in 1.1

  1. Added the ability to assign a friend as a worker for non groups tasks
  2. Added the url of the worker instead of the simple text
  3. Added the item in the group profile
  4. Fix the group task creation.




  • Thanks very much for this. Just wondering if the data can be left in the fields when editing a task. For example, we might only want to change the worker assigned to the task, but when clicking on edit, it removes the dates, status, worker etc from the top area, then we have to try and remember what we had originally put in. 

  • This is really a small thing not worth a new version.  I simply went in and changed the language file but on the tool bar menu "task is lower case.  All the other functions are capitalized.  This is an easy fix so I was just recommending the change on your next release.

    Thanks :)

  • very nice plugin. Thanks

  • Group tasks says tasks:nogroup instead of showing any tasks.


    showing up when a worker is assigned and they go to that group


  • Hey, this looks really great - I know it says ELGG ver 1.6, but could it work on 1.5?

  • I just installed in a 1.6.1 installation but after enabling it, I can see only 'tasks:read', 'tasks:everyone' and 'tasks:add'! When I go to the latest, the right pane of the window displays 'tasks:this' and tha's all! I can't add or edit anything! What am I doing wrong?



  • Think I found a bug/conflict with Event Calendar. When Task-plugin is enabled all my events gets startdate 1 Jan 1970.. When I disabled Task-plugin I could chose start/end dates ifor events again.

  • Great plugin!!! I have few questions on this.  As admin create a task and assigned to one user. But the assigned task is not visible to that user.

    For example, if user A create a task and assigned to user B, when user B logged in and check the task page, the assigned task is not showing.

  • I have got a similar problem to Terje Vullum except when I have both Event Calendar and this plugin enabled I can't see the Event Calendar's calendar properly (i.e. the background is transparent and therefore I can't see the text underneath the calendar).

    I think this might have something to do with each of these plugins having their own datepicker scripts. But I am not sure how to fix it.

  • Hi Ian & Terje Vullum, I have both these plugins installed, but have neither of these issues, so it may be another problem (theme, plugin order etc)... sorry I can't be of more help.

  • I found a bug in the file "js.php.
    In line 11:
    showOn: "both",
    Change to:
    showOn: "both"

    In Internet Explorer 8, produced errors.

    Thank you very much for your work

  • If i click on other pages ('Next') when I have 20+ tasks, i remain on first one

    eg: the URL correctly goes to page http://localhost/elgg/pg/tasks/group:171/items?offset=20, but the content continues to show the first page.

    It works with members and last discussions.

  • Hello,

    I dont' know if you are still supporting this plugin but I met an issue or maybe I do something wrong or do not understand how notifications work but I never receive it. When adding a task, no site notification nor email. Could you explain me what you mean by:

    • Notification: As the bookmark system.
