Types of tasks

Tasks in the application are divided into tasks of type:

  • ordinary, three-state, which may be in one of three states:
    • To do (to realize) marked with icon - the task is waiting to start its realization;
    • Doing (during realization, in progress) marked with icon - the task is being just realized;
    • Done (realized, completed) marked with icon - the task was completed.

    Information about the time of moving the task between states

    can be obtained by clicking on the task details display icon located on the right of the task.
  • ordinary, two-state, which may be in one of two states:
    • To do (to realize) marked with icon - the task is waiting to be realized;
    • Done (realized, completed) marked with icon - the task was completed.
  • timer, which may be in one of four states:
    • To do (to realize) marked with icon - the task is waiting for the next measurement of its duration to begin;
    • Doing (during realization, in progress; active) marked with icon - the task is being realized and the measurement of its duration is on;
    • Pauza (during realization, in progress; suspended) marked with icon - the task is being realized and the measurement of its duration is paused;
    • Done (realized, completed) marked with icon - the measurement of the task duration has been completed.
    For time tasks, additional information is displayed under the icon (2: 0:02:13) , dependendt on the application settings:
    • Total time - the total duration of the measurement, i.e. from the moment the Start button was pressed until the Stop button was pressed;
    • Activity time - duration of the measurement, i.e. from the moment the Start button was pressed until the Stop button was pressed, ignorin the time when the task was in Pause.
    In both cases, the time given is preceded by a measurement number.
    This setting can be changed in Settings / Go to settings / Corti / Section General / Timer task time.
    The frequency of the update of this time can be changed in Settings / Go to settings / Corti / Section General / Timer update interval.

The total duration of the task consists of at least one measurement and each measurement consists of at least one interval.

Active and inactive lists

Lists with tasks are grouped on two tabs:

  • Active with lists containing tasks whose states can be changed (currently under execution);
  • Inactive with lists containing tasks whose states can not be changed (currently not under execution).
Third tab - Timer - contains all tasks from active lists that are timer tasks.

For active lists, information about the number of tasks to realize (to do), during realization (doing) and realized (done) is located on the bar under the name of the list .

The numbers given, depending on the option selected in the settings Settings / Go to Settings / Corti / Section General / Count timer tasks, may or may not include timer tasks.

The total number of lists and tasks is also displayed on the badge of the tab with active lists:

  • Label with a sign minus, e.g. 1|-0 means: total number of lists: 1, total number of tasks to realize (To do): 0
  • Label with a sign plus, e.g. 1|+0 means: total number of lists: 1, total number of realized tasks (Done): 0
  • Label without a sign, e.g. 1|0 means: total number of lists: 1, total number of tasks during realization (Doing): 0
This setting can be changed in Settings / Go to Settings / Corti / Section General / Tasks type on Active badge.

Enabling for the selected active list the option When all done move to Inactive, available after pressing the list details icon located on the right side of the list (or during its creation), will automatically move the list to the Inactive when all tasks are in Done(realized, completed) state.

The list will not be moved to Inactive, even if the option When all done move to Inactive is enabled, if one of its tasks is a timer task. The reason for this is the specificity of timer tasks that can be repeatedly started and ended as part of many measurements.

For inactive lists, the number of tasks to realize (to do), during realization (doing) and realized (done) is not displayed under the list name.

For each inactive list you can set in the field Activate on date, available by pressing the list details display icon located on the right side of the list (or during its creation), the date of the autoactivation of the list, which will be signaled by displaying this date on the right under the list name .


Must-Should-Could

For each active list, you can set the Complete due to date field, which you can access by pressing the list details icon located on the right side of the list (or during its creation), the finale date when all taks should be ended. In this case new items will appear on the screen with active lists:

  • The summary bar at the top of the screen

    containing information about:
    • the number of lists whose tasks must be completed
      due to exceeding the deadline for their completion date.
    • the number of lists whose tasks should be completed
      latest on the current day due to
      the deadline for their completion is comming.
    • the number of lists whose tasks could by completed,
      but they do not have to, because of
      the deadline for their completion is specified in the future.
  • The number under the list icon informs about:
    • backlog - the number of days that have passed since the day,
      when the tasks were to be completed;
    • realization on time - tasks should be
      finished on the current day;

      until the day the tasks should be completed.
