| Viewing and
The Task view allows you to create and monitor
tasks that are related to the completing of your Web site.
To go to the Tasks View, Click the Tasks View icon on the
Views bar. The Tasks View displays the status, task, assigned
to, priority, associated with, modified date and description
of each page in the site.
The Status column shows the status of each
task in your web. Three options are possible: Not Started,
In Progress and Completed. A task is in "Not started
status" until the page is loaded in to Page view. After
opening that page it is In "Progress status". When
completed it displays Completed.
The Tasks column simply lists the
name of the tasks. FrontPage automatically gives a name when
you use a wizard to create a web, but when you add a task
manually you can give any name you prefer (up to 256 characters).
All tasks contain an Assigned To field.
You can type whatever you like in this field, but the idea
is to assign each web task to a member of your authoring team.
FrontPage does no internal checking for names or user IDs;
this field is entirely free form.
There are three priority levels: High,
Medium and Low. Assigning a priority in FrontPage doesn't
check due dates or alerts you to unfinished work (works as
a Personal Information Manager). You can however, sort by
priority as a means of helping you organize your teams work.
The Associated With field shows the
title of the page (in the FrontPage web) that the task actually
belongs to. This field will appear only when you create a
link through Page view, at which point the task takes the
title of the page you're working on as its association.
The Modified Date column shows the
date and time the task was last modified. In other words,
it shows when the linked page was last changed and saved or
marked as completed. This field cannot be manually modified.
As the name suggests, this column
is simply a description of that task. FrontPage offers its
own generic description of task it creates through wizards,
but you can change the description at any time. In fact, you
can use it for simple checklists for the task, due dates and
an explanation can also be provided for further users.
You can sort the task in Tasks view
according to any of the columns. While there might be little
need for this kind of sorting, it can be obvious on a much
longer list sorting by priority, by page linked to, or by
person assigned to. You can toggle the elements in a column
between ascending and descending by clicking the column heading.
