Chapter 18. Managing a Web > FrontPage's Tasks View

FrontPage's Tasks View

The single most useful piece of direct Web management available through FrontPage is the Tasks view. Although it's certainly no replacement for sophisticated project management software, it is nevertheless a surprisingly powerful assistant. From the Tasks view you can launch and work on every one of the outstanding projects, and you can get an entire history of who did what and when during the building of your site.

FrontPage automatically creates a Tasks view for each Web you create, although depending on the web you've created there is not necessarily a set of tasks in that view. The principle behind the Tasks view is this: All pages are incomplete (under construction) on a newly created Web. They will show in the Web as being under construction and will bear the Under Construction icon (unless you've specified in the wizard not to include that icon). As you work on individual pages, you can load them into FrontPage from the Tasks view. If you change anything on that page and then save it to the web, FrontPage will, if you want, automatically mark the task as completed within the Tasks view. You can add new tasks in the Tasks view from within the Tasks view itself, or you can add them from within the other views. You must have the Web currently open in FrontPage to use the Tasks view.
