Wrangle's task list functionality assigns people to complete a checklist of one or more tasks.
A task list posted to a Slack channel.
A task list is composed of one or more tasks. The overall task list is considered complete when all of its tasks are marked as complete.
Most task lists are launched via a Wrangle workflow for a recurring use case. But you can also start a one-off task list for work that comes up from time-to-time. For example, if you're working on a small project (outside of a workflow) you could create a one-off task list to assign different tasks to your colleagues.
You can launch a one-off task list in one of many ways:
- You can use Slack's search bar and look for "Start a Task List with Wrangle"
- You can use the Shortcuts menu by clicking the ➕ icon in the reply box and searching for "Start a Task List with Wrangle." Instead of clicking the icon, you can also type "/" in the reply box as well.
If a task list has not been completed, you can edit any incomplete tasks. You can add/delete tasks, rename them, and change who is assigned to each. You can't remove tasks that are marked as complete.
Not everyone can edit an in-progress task list.
If the task list was created by a workflow, it can only be edited by people assigned to a task or by the Workflow's Admins.
If the task list is a one-off task list, it can only be edited by people assigned to it, or to its creator.
