Tasks

Any assigned, active tasks will appear in the top-right corner of the FortiNAC page under a new bell notification icon. Each task has a message, an icon to present who it's assigned to (either you, or everyone), and a pencil with which to edit the task. Some tasks may optionally also have a redirect icon which can be clicked to take you to a different view within the site. At the bottom of this notification drop-down, there is a cog menu to click for Task Settings (which for now is only to show tasks you've assigned).

Aside from this notification panel, there is a main Task view which you can navigate to via the left navigation pane under System > Tasks. Here you can see and manage all Tasks regardless of assigned or completed states.

The actions you can take are shown via buttons at the top of the page, as well as context menus when right-clicking a task. You can create tasks, edit tasks, mark a task as complete, or delete them altogether.

When creating a new task, the following properties are available to you:

  • Message: Text to be displayed in the Task List and notification panel.

  • Previous Task (optional): A hierarchical feature to link tasks in sequence. The task provided must be completed before the task being created/edited can be completed.

  • Associated View (optional): A view within the navigation whick will be opened when the user clicks Open View

  • Assignee (optional): A user to assign this task to. If left blank, the task will be assigned to everyone

  • Note (optional): Added text field for more robust information; only viewable from the Task view, not the notification panel.
