I realize the original purpose of this plugin is for collaboration projects, but instead I am using it for training purposes.
I have a password protected page set up for the business executive officer so that he can monitor the training and progression of work by his IT Dept Mgr (the person I'm training on WP for their new business site).
So I don't actually want to remove the tasks from the dashboard. I'd rather they show as "completed" for the person I'm training - I see this (if it worked properly marking "completed") as a good motivator to the person being trained.
Even though I've explained to him it is not working properly and I am in fact marking his tasks completed as gets them done, and he understands this... each time we get on the phone to train and he logs into his editor dashboard he remarks about those tasks being completed and jokes that they say "past due" instead... almost seems to take a bit of the wind out of his sails.
Hopefully this makes better sense for you in regards to how I've chosen to utilize your plugin.
As I've said though - regardless of this glitch it is working out very well as a training and project task list. If you can work out the glitch that'd be great :-) if not, then that's ok too.
It is an awesome plugin and I'm glad I found it. I can think of other scenarios (not necessarily "collaboration" based) that this would work very well for too.
Thanks for your prompt and friendly replies!! You ROCK!!
