I'm working on a workflow-kinda application where a project leader is required to assign tasks in the project to users. Following are the key inputs to this requirement:
- The users are selected by searching in the application's user group.
- The tasks are grouped in to phases.
- User should be able to assign all tasks in a phase to a particular user.
- User should be able to assign each task in a phase to a different user.
I'm wondering what the best approach would be. Something that is obivious is to have a collapsable table
- Phase 1 - Assign User
1-a. Task 1-1 - Assign User
1-b. Task 1-2 - Assign User
1-c. Task 1-3 - Assign User
- Phase 2 - Assign User
2-a. Task 2-1 - Assign User
2-b. Task 2-2 - Assign User
2-c. Task 2-3 - Assign User
If the assign user is clicked at the Phase 1, the search feature will be provided in a pop-up and after searching that user will be applied to the entire phase and overwrite any assignment that was done at the task level in that phase. And when assign user is click at the task level, it will be applied only to that task in that phase.
Is this approach the best approach OR is there another one?
