Installable with the Extension Manager


You can also try the Pro version: Task Manager Application (Pro) which offers the ability to create inline tasks, similar to the Action Items of Confluence, new macros to manage the tasks and other improvements and bugfixes.

Allows users to create and assign tasks from anywhere on the wiki. Each task has a task number generated automatically, a name, project, description, status, severity, reporter, assignee and a due date. The application homepage lists all the existing tasks.

Application Home Page

To access the application, click on the "Task Manager" link from the Applications panel.

Kanban Board

This application also provides a macro that you can include in a page to have your tasks organized in a Kanban Board.

How can you use it?

Simply, just by writing the following line in a page:

{{kanbanboard space="TaskManager" /}}


  • user [optional, default=$xcontext.userReference] define the user for who tasks are assigned
  • space [optional, default=TaskManager] define the space to look for tasks
  • project [optional, default=] define the project to look for tasks

Additional example:
{{kanbanboard user="XWiki.Admin" /}}


Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

We recommend using the Extension Manager to install this extension (Make sure that the text "Installable with the Extension Manager" is displayed at the top right location on this page to know if this extension can be installed with the Extension Manager). Note that installing Extensions when being offline is currently not supported and you'd need to use some complex manual method.

You can also use the following manual method, which is useful if this extension cannot be installed with the Extension Manager or if you're using an old version of XWiki that doesn't have the Extension Manager:

  1. Log in the wiki with a user having Administration rights
  2. Go to the Administration page and select the Import category
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to upload the downloaded XAR
  4. Click on the uploaded XAR and follow the instructions
  5. You'll also need to install all dependent Extensions that are not already installed in your wiki

Please do not forget to use a user with Programming Rights (Such as the Admin) to import this XAR as some of the pages require to be saved by a user with Programming Rights to work.
