Forum OpenACS Development: Re: dotWRK: Project Manager

Posted by Peter Marklund on
will you somehow be using the bug-tracker application that also functions for general task management / ticket tracking to manage project tasks? I think it's a really fine application, based on the new powerful workflow service, and it would be a shame if we didn't make the most use of it.

I'm curious whether it makes sense to use the bugtracker or not.

We could definitely extend it to do the job, but it's not going to work without some changes (as far as I can tell).

Dependencies will need to be added, for example.

Also, I think for a corporate setting, other ways of viewing your Tasks may be necessary. The google style interface is fine and intuitive, but we're going to need to work on some Tuftesque dense information per unit area type interface issues.

Bugtracker might be the best place to start, though. I've heard good things about the code, and it seems to work well.

Also, I imagine using workflow is a good idea. I'm still not totally clear how it works, though. We'll all probably need to read the documentation on the new workflow package, as see what it does for us.
