What I want to do.

  • A user clicks on his profile page.
  • A view displays that shows a list of completed tasks.
  • A task consists of a list of check-boxes (a checklist) and a "pending and finished" dropdown.
  • The user should also be able to create a task for himself, selected from a list of checklists.

This is my solution so far

  • Create a content type "checklists"

  • create a role reference field

  • create the checkbox field

  • create a view with CONTEXTUAL FILTERS to show the tasks assigned to the user

Ive also tried a few modules

  • checklist

  • QA Checklist

  • SEO Checklist

But they dont seem to have the features i want.

Am i going in the right direction?

Flags also looks promising - It looks like you can create a flag(button:create task) and then use actions or rules to create the node and reference the user automatically

Please go through the following modules,

To do list for Drupal 6 only

Offers a content-type for a simple To do list. It can be used for anything that needs to be done: getting milk at the store, reminding yourself to update a profile, telling your users to vote on a poll by a certain date...

and myTinyTodo - Available for D6 & D7

A simple way to manage your todo list. This module is based on myTinyTodo.

Otherwise you can do the same system with your current approach

  • myTinyTodo is almost what I need. But didn't see a way to add checklists.

Finally got something right.

Its actually quite easy, you can do it with just views and one module

  1. Install http://drupal.org/project/userreference_url
  2. Create a field "User reference" with widget "Reference from URL"
  3. Create a view to display nodes with relationship to user.
  4. Enable the button to create referenced node in the module.
