Summary0000950: Unable to assign user through "Edit task" form
DescriptionIn the "Edit task" form, when clicking on human resources tab I see only one blank entry and one user listed in the "Human Resources:" box, although I have 4 users created via User Admin. However assigning a user through the "Tasks" view allows to properly select from existing users. Could be something broken with the "Human Resources" list. Cant remember having this problem in W2P 2.2.

Steps to reproduce:
I've installed a fresh 2.4 version. Added several companies, 4 users, 2 projects and one task per project.

PHP 5.2.17
MySQL 5.0.84
Apache/2.2.19 (Unix)

The one user you see is probably your admin user, correct?

By default, web2project will not show Inactive Users or Users without Task access in the Human Resources box.

It's built on the belief that it's inappropriate to assigns Tasks to someone if they can't log into the system (Inactive) or can't see Tasks at all.

True! The only user I saw on the list had administrator role assigned, others were project workers. I've added permissions to access and view tasks and now they show up properly in human resources box.

However you still might want to look into it because of a minor inconsistency: I was able to assign the user using the main "Tasks" view interface but not through "edit task" interface.

Anyway thanks for quick reply caseydk! As far as I'm concerned you can close this issue.

What's the url for the page where you were able to assign inactive users?

Everything after the "index.php?" is sufficient.

on the right side there is a list of users with "+" and "-" buttons.

To be precise: these users were listed as ACTIVE in User Admin - they just didn't have the permissions to access and view tasks - as you've pointed out this prohibited them to be added to task through "edit task" page.

The best equivalent screen that I can find is:


Unfortunately, I can't make much of it in general and I think it should be completely reworked to be useful.

Is this page something you use regularly?
2011-11-25 05:46   
yes - at least in previous versions, I could use it to set the user specific priority for my employees.
This may be lost in 3pre - it is very important to get that back: an admin must be able to set user priorities for others without clicking into every single task to do that

This one is updated. If you check the "Edit Multiple Task Assignments" box in the System Configuration, the ?m=tasks page allows for multiple assignments, updates, etc.
