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

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.

You will have to import the Task Manager Application in your wiki. To do so, follow these steps:

  • Click on the "administration" link at the top right corner.
  • Step 1 : Import the application
    • Click on the "import" tab.
    • Upload the Task+Manager+Application-10M1.xar file.
    • Click on its name once you can see it in the list of files available for import.
    • Click on "import" -> the application is now available in your wiki.
  • Step 2 : Now you need to tell the wiki where to find the languages resources.
    • In the administration menu, click on the "Preferences" tab.
    • Click on the "Programming" sub-menu.
    • Scroll in this menu until you can see "Internationalization Document Bundles:" written.
    • In that field, copy-paste the following text : "TasksCode.Translations,"
    • Save the page.
  • Step 3 : setup your Task Panels
    • Go to the http://<server>/xwiki/bin/view/Panels/PanelWizard page
    • Select your favorite layout. You need to have at least one column to use the task panels.
    • Drag & Drop the tasks panels from the panel list in the center to the side column of your choice.
    • Click on "Save the new layout" at the bottom of the page. You're done !
  • Your application is now available on the following page: http://<server>/xwiki/bin/view/Tasks/
