FAQ – Rose Task Manager

Please contact me, post in the forum or add an entry to the issue tracker if there are any features you would like to see in future versions.

Q. Can I change the name of the task list spreadsheet from Rose Task Manager?

No, at the moment that isn’t configurable.

Q. Can I change the name of the regular event calendar from Rose Task Manager?

No, at the moment that isn’t configurable.

Q. What happens if I try and re-install the add-on without uninstalling it first?

The existing task list and fields sheet are retained and their names appended with the todays date and time before a new task list and fields sheet are created. The existing form is deleted and re-created. The existing calendar is retained and used, so any existing events/tasks will still appear in the new task list as scheduled.

Q. Can I rearrange the columns in the task list and add new ones?

Yes, the script can cope with this but DO NOT rename the existing columns as they are used by the script. They will be configurable in later versions.

Q. Can I change the fields in the Fields sheet?

No, these are used internally by the script.

Q. Can I manually add tasks to the list rather than using the form?

No, they have to be added via the Google form linked to the sheet (Form > Go to live form).

Q. Can the task request form be customised?

Extra fields can be added but the names of the existing ones must stay the same.

Q. Can the emails be customised?

No, at the moment they aren’t configurable.

Q. If I change the Status of a task from ‘closed/done’ to ‘open’ will it clear the ‘closed’ timestamp

No, the user is left to manage the timestamps once the script has added them.
