Assignment

Description

The Assignment resource is used to group a collection of [permalink id=2018 text=’Task Objectives’]. The Assignment will be marked complete when all the Task Objectives are complete.

When the Assignment is activated, it will activate any Task Objectives that have not been marked “hidden”. These non-hidden objectives will be displayed on the Assignment screen (implementation dependent). When a Task Objective is completed, the Assignment screen will update to display this.

A Task Objective can be marked completed in two ways. An objective can be assigned to a [permalink id=2313 text=’Task‘]. When that Task is completed, the assigned Task Objective will also be marked as completed. Alternatively, the [permalink id=2308 text=’Complete Objective‘] resource can be used to explicitly mark an objective as complete.

A Task Objective can be marked as “hidden” so it will not appear in the Assignment screen. If so, it will not be displayed until the [permalink id=2302 text=’Activate Objective‘] resource is used.
