Project action templates

From WikiEducator
Jump to: navigation, search

A template or three for project management meetings: go through a table of tasks updating status and progress comments[1].

The three templates form a table:

  1. Template:Actions Table Header - headings of each column
  2. Template:ActionRow - each row representing a task or activity
  3. Template:Actions Table Footer - table footer, optionally with totals and summary comments.

Themes may be applied to any row using Template:Task status theme - see example below. The themes have names such as 'done', 'ahead', 'on-track', 'behind', 'urgent', 'black', 'red', etc.. The theme of a row may be used to indicate the state of the task. The header and footer rows may also be themed to indicate the state of the project (e.g. in terms of progress in the header and financials in the footer), etc.
