It's easy enough to create a task and add it to a person, but when I want to create a list of tasks, Family Tree Builder frustrates me.
1) Custom Report
Reports > Export custom report...
PROBLEM: When i click on Selected fields and then press Select, I am presented with a dialog box with a list of field names. Tasks is not included in the list.
SOLUTION: Add Tasks to the list of fields.
2) Task Export
Edit > Export to Excel > Export list of tasks
PROBLEM: The name of the person associated with the task is is not included. The only way to identify the tasks is a mysterious column named ID 1 T EN. This must be an identification number unique to each individual task, but it is useless as there isn't any association with a person in the project.
As a workaround, when I created the task, I put the name of the person in the Title field.
SOLUTION: Change the name of the ID 1 T EN column. Name it something like Task Number so that it cannot be confused with the record number of a person. Most importantly, include seperate columns for First Name and Last Name.
3) Interface Improvements
Improvements should be made to the interface to display tasks.
One way is to include a field for Tasks in the List view on the left-hand side of the main window.
Another way would be to include a button in the taskbar to create a list of tasks in the main window. The user could then choose to save or print.
