I was curious if anyone is using Discourse to generate and track “soft” tasks. As an architect and lead engineer I work with many team members in my product development projects where I often say “hey, team, check out this new tool or cool thing”. Using mentions is great is but I was curious if there was a way mark a post or topic as “TO DO” or task for a person being mentioned.
Any suggestions for using Discourse as a “soft” task tracking tool so that we know which items are open / closed, need further review, etc? Perhaps tagging or adding @TODO or @TASK or some similar special text markers might be do the trick?
By the way, we plan on integrating the TODO list in our Wiki so that items with tasks are easy to find and then when a topic is closed it can be considered “done”.
Suggestions welcome. Thanks for some great software, Discourse is terrific.
