BuddyTask is a WordPress plugin that allows the members of a community to manage their tasks and workflows by using a KanBan like board. BuddyTask deeply integrates with BuddyPress (2.5+) and offers the following features:

  • Ability to add a KanBan like board in Buddypress Groups where all the members of a group can organize their tasks
  • Ability to add a KanBan like board in any Post or Page by simply using the [buddytask] shortcode
  • Ability to assign tasks to specific group members or registered users
  • Ability to break down a task into multiple sub-tasks or todos in order to better track their completion
  • Ability for the users to prioritize the tasks and their sub-tasks by simply using drag and drop
  • Integrates with the notification system of BuddyPress in order to notify the users about any changes in their assigned tasks.
  • Automatic calculation and representation of the percentage of completion of each task
  • Automatic sync of the board among all its users in the background, without the need to refresh the page

This plugin is available in english.

Can I manage the permissions of the board and its tasks?

No, the current version of the plugin gives the same permissions to all users that are able to access the location (group, post, page) of the board. Permission management will come in a future version.

Can I have multiple boards in the same Page, Post, BuddyPress Group ?

No, the current version of the plugin only supports one board per Page, Post, BuddyPress Group. If you add multiple times the [budytask] shortcode to a Page or Post the same board will be displayed.

What happens when the due day of a task expires ?

Nothing, at the moment it is just a visual reminder. But that will change in the near future!

Can I have more the four columns or lanes ?

No, the current version only supports four lanes, but you can change their default names by clicking on them. Things may change in the future!

It’s simple and that’s what I like about it. If you develop this plugin further to include additional functions like time tracking, comments, etc., I’ll be the first to sign up! There isn’t much out there that works this well on the frontend, so thank you… :thumbsup:

Very easy to implement and use. Developer is responsive to suggestions and improvements. A very clean kanban design system, with the simplest functions of Trello or similar.

I found this plugin quite by accident and I have to say I am impressed with how beautifully it pairs with BuddyBoss!The plugin is lightweight, has a very nice and clear UI and everything works as it should :)A very good start!Please continue developing this great plugin! P.S. Not all words are translatable at the moment (some strings are missing), but I think it’s only a matter of time until you fix it.
