Task and Project Status blocks

P2 includes a few blocks built for project tracking: the Task and the Project Status blocks.

Tasks

The Task block is used to keep track of tasks that need to be done. It can be any time of tasks: from work to-dos, to things to do before a trip, grocery lists, etc.

To add a task, select it from the block picker. To mark something as done, just click on the checkbox on the left. You can click it again to un-do it.

Assigning tasks

Tasks can also be assigned to specific people. To do so, select a task and click on “Assign”. The person you select will receive a notification once the post or page is published, and their username will appear on the right side.

Advanced options

Tasks support advanced options that can be tweaked from the editor’s sidebar:

  • Status: Aside of “pending” and “done”, tasks can be marked as “in progress”.
  • Start and due dates: Tasks can be delimited with a start and a due date.

Project Status

When a post or page has many tasks, it’s useful to have a quick glance summary of how things are going. This can be done with the Project Status block.

To add a project status, select it from the block picker. It’ll display a progress bar of all the tasks in a post or page that will update automatically as tasks are marked as done.

A status can also display a due date for the whole project. To add it, just click on “Set due date” on the right side of the block, or on the editor’s sidebar.

When a Project Status block is present in a post or page, clicking on a task’s checkbox will cycle its status between “pending”, “in progress” and “done” — instead of just toggling between “pending” and “done”.
