Task Groups

What does this add-on do?

Task Groups allows you to create and manage groups of tasks, which you can use when creating a new project.

For example, there are usually many (sometimes hundreds) of common sets of tasks associated with web development projects. Adding these one by one every time you create a new web development project is painful and time consuming. With the Task Groups add-on, you add all these tasks into a group (let’s call it the ‘Web Projects’ group) just once which you can include when you create any new project.

Once this plug-in is activated, when creating a new project you will see a new selection field where you can choose which Task Group to include.

How do I activate the add-on?

Activate the add-on like you would any other WordPress plugin. Go to Plugins -> Installed Plugins -> Task Rocket Task Groups and hit the Activate link.

Once the add-on has been activated, you will see a new tab WordPress admin called Task Groups.

How do I manage Task Groups

Task Groups are managed from the Wordpesss back-end. Hit the Task Groups menu item in the left sidebar and start adding tasks to groups.

It works as a simple two level hierarchy, where the parent is the name of the group and the children are the names of the tasks in that group.

Is there a limit on how many Task Groups I can create?

The Task Group add-on does not impose any limits on how many task groups you can create, or how many tasks you place into a group.

I've activated the add-on but it doesn't seem to show anywhere

If this is the case, the most likely cause is that you are not running at least Task Rocket 2.5. Upgrade (free for existing users) and you should be good to go.

I don't see any Task Groups on the front-end when I go to create a project

This simply means you haven’t created any Task Groups yet. Go to WordPress admin, click on Task Groups and start creating groups of tasks.
