Task vs Action terminology Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
As you guys near release, do you plan to do a search and replace in the AS side on "task" and use "action" as is used in the UI?

Task is a more general term in the model that refers to inbox items, actions, groups and projects (though that relationship isn't quite the same).

We could, at some point, add extra subclasses of the 'task' scripting class that would narrow the specified children ("actions of MyProject" could only return the leaf actions, but no groups).

This would be a fair bit of work and there hasn't been a ton of clamoring for it, so it will almost certainly stay 'task' (which actually used to be the user terminology and then that changed ... =)
CTO, The Omni Group
seems all quite reasonable, thanks for the tidbits.
