Element Types & Completing Elements
There are three types of element within Method Grid and your elements dashboard can now be filtered between these types. You can also mark certain element types as complete within your dashboard.
Filtering By Element Type
You can now choose which element types to show in your dashboard:
- Completable (with sub-tasks) – this is toggled ON by default
- Completable (no sub-tasks) – this is toggled ON by default
- Information only – this is toggled OFF by default
You can now mark elements as complete within your dashboard using the complete checkbox. Only completable elements with no sub-tasks can be completed from the dashboard:
1 – Completable (no sub-tasks)
These are elements that do not have tasks within them, but can be completed using the element complete feature. To complete these elements you simply tick the checkbox. Completable elements without tasks can only be completed by the user that is assigned to them. If no user is assigned, then anyone with view access to the grid can complete them. Users with edit and manage access to the grid can complete any element, irrespective of whether it is assigned to them or another user.
2 – Completable (with sub-tasks)
These are elements that have tasks within them. These elements can only be completed based on the completion of the tasks within them i.e. once 100% of the tasks within the element have been completed, the element is automatically marked as complete. You cannot mark these as complete via your elements dashboard. Click the element title to open these elements and action any outstanding tasks.
3 – Information only
These are elements that have no tasks within them and that do not need to be completable. These elements will not have the new element complete checkbox feature.
