Is it possible to generate a Taskboard in a dashboard widget that only shows the tasks of the current user and the unassigned tasks.
This would be great on a Dashboard where we show the information for the current user only.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Siegfried,

You can use one of the widgets to display external sites and that would show the taskboard.

You can create a filter for the taskboard to filter out users. Unfortunately the filter filter out and does not only pass these through. you would have to add filters for all users and just deselect the current user.
There is no "parameter" so you would have to create a new view for each user. So unfortunately I don't see how you could automate the current user.

I don't think that this solution is really practical.

The other thing is, it will slow down the dashboard and requires quite some screen area.

Hello Ralph,

thanks for your solution, but it seems not easy to be implemented because each user need to adapt the filters.
