Task Manager
Getting started

Getting started with Task Manager

You must have "Manage Server" permissions or be the owner of the server to add a bot to a Discord server.


Once you have clicked on the "Authorise" button, the bot will join your server and you will be able to see its slash commands.

Getting a basic understanding

Setup

After adding the bot to your server, you can get a guided tour to set up some basic settings by running the following command:

/setup

Basic commands

We will go through some of the most common commands to get a basic understanding.

First, create a task:

/task create
title
My first task

Command Options

RequiredNameDescription
YestitleThe title of the task

To then display tasks, use:

/task list

You will notice that there are no tasks displayed. This is because the task you created is not assigned to you.

So, to see all the tasks that have been created so far, we can run:

/task project

The task will now appear in the todo category.

To keep track of your progress, each task has a status of todo, in progress or done.
When you create a new task, the default status is todo.
To change the status of a task, we need the task ID, which can be found when creating or listing tasks.

The following command sets the status of the task with the ID 1 from todo to in progress

/task inprogress
task_id
1

Command Options

RequiredNameDescription
Yestask_idThe id of the task (can be found in the task list or when creating a task)

All task commands can be found here.

Assign tasks

You can distribute tasks by assigning them to other users or discord roles.
To assign the previously created task (My first task) to a user or role, you can use the task assign command:

/task assign
task_id
1
assignee
@SomeUser

Command Options

RequiredNameDescription
Yestask_idThe id of the task (can be found in the task list or when creating a task)
YesassigneeA user or role from the server you want to assign the task to

This command assigns the task with the ID 1 to the user SomeUser.

It is also possible to assign a user (or role) to a task directly when creating it:

/task create
title
My second task
assignee
@SomeUser

Command Options

RequiredNameDescription
YestitleThe title of the task
NoassigneeA user or role from the server you want to assign the task to

When a task is assigned to a user, the user will receive a DM notification from the bot.

Projects

If your team is working on different things at the same time, projects come in handy. In short, a project is an isolated place for tasks. Read more about projects here.

By the way, the task "My first task" was also created in a project. This is the default project, and unless you create another, all tasks will be created in this project.

If you want to keep track of which books you want to read and which you have already read, without being distracted by other tasks, you can create a project called books:

/project create
name
books

Command Options

RequiredNameDescription
YesnameThe name of the project

You can now select the project by clicking on the blue "Select project" button or using this command:

/project select
name
books

Command Options

RequiredNameDescription
YesnameThe name of an existing project

Tasks you create will now be placed in books until you select another project.
