Tasks for your site
To add or view tasks, select the ‘Tasks’ option in the WordPress dashboard.
This will show you the tasks relating your entire site. You can see how many tasks are in the backlog, or are active, for each page on your site.
You can also see the total number of tasks for your site in the top right-hand corner.
On the right hand-side of each page, there are two blue buttons:
- Tasks – click this button to drill down into the tasks for that page
- Manage – click this button to manage your tasks in Mind Doodle
Tasks per page
Another way to see the tasks relating to a single page is to hover over the page in the visual sitemap and click the tick icon in the icon panel.
You can add new tasks a number of ways:
1. Click ‘Add New’, the fourth option in the column under Mind Doodle in your dashboard
2. When viewing Tasks, click the ‘Add New’ button at the top of the page
3. Open the drop down list ‘+ New’ at the top of the screen and select ‘Tasks’
4. Add tasks from Mind Doodle
You can add the following task details:
- Link to a specific page
- Add task title
- Select task type
- Specify priority
- Add task description
- Set time estimate
- Assign the person responsible
To finish, click the green ‘Save Task’ button.
Once you’ve added a task, you’ll be redirected to the ‘Tasks’ page, showing tasks that are specific to that page.
From here, you can see:
- What the task is
- Which page it relates to
- Who it is assigned to
- What status it is at, and
- Which sprint it is a part of
