Tips & Tricks

Internal links

Twproject support an easy way to refer and link to any “entity” from any descriptive field. For example, you can link any task, resource or issue from any event in the agenda. You can link any other task from a project description or deliverable. Same from the issue description and so on.

screen1244Notice in this top part of the task editor on the left that there a task internal “code”, which every saved task has: T#IDAHO#. This code allows you to link to this task editor from every other editor in Twproject. For example, if on any (other) task editor in the “description” or “deliverables” fields you write such code, this will turn into a link. In this way you can cross link any task to any other, and more – see below.

Cross linking supports links between: tasks (T#CODE#), issues (I#CODE #), resources (R#CODE #), agenda events (E#CODE #), agenda meetings (M#CODE #), (B#ID#) boards, where the value of “CODE” is shown in the editors.screen1245

Actually the text in the text area supports also HTTP links, images and smileys: you can get a description like this one:

with several active links.

Smart URLs

Twproject supports smart URLs like:

Tasks: [yourserver]/t/[mytaskcode]  or [yourserver]/task/[mytaskcode]
So if your server is called “Twproject”, you can get a task of code “PROD66” with the URL:
http://twproject/t/PROD66

In the same way, this syntax has been enabled for issues, resources, events, meeting and boards:

Issues: [yourserver]/i/[myIssueCode] or [yourserver]/issue/[myIssueCode]

Resources: [yourserver]/r/[myResourceCode] or [yourserver]/resource/[myResourceCode]

Agenda events:  [yourserver]/e/[myEventCode] or [yourserver]/event/[myEventCode]

Meetings:  [yourserver]/m/[myMeetingCode] or [yourserver]/meeting/[myMeetingCode]

Boards:  [yourserver]/b/[myBoardCode] or [yourserver]/board/[myBoardCode]

 

Bookmarks

A simple way to get back to a common used page is to record a bookmark. Twproject has a refined tool to manage bookmarks.

Suppose that I set a complex filter on issue’s list page, and this page is used quite often: e.g.: my issues notified last week still opened:

Just click on tools menu and then “+ add current view to bookmark”

insert a title and add, the bookmark will be available on the tools menu

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

External links can be save as well by adding a bookmarklet to your browser.
From the tools menu choose “manage bookmarks”

and drag the link on the browser toolbar. Then go wherever you like and click image to add that page to you Twproject menu.
