Executive Assistant

Version: 1.0.7
by: VincentSDSH [More]

Executive Assistant
Custom To-Do/Task List is Only the Beginning

An Executive Assistant helps you efficiently navigate a busy schedule, answers questions, and keeps information in easy reach. Executive Assistant, the addon, does this for the Player and extends the 'user configurable to-do list' concept a bit. Yet, for all one can do with it, its purpose is to do what the Player needs, be it complex or quite simple.

Executive Assistant operates at the Account Level, so you can quickly look at a Character and see Tasks they have/haven't completed. Or, quickly look at a Task, and see which Characters have/haven't completed it even if you use the same name on multiple servers.

Tasks and Groups are only entered once. The Per-Character Visual Layout lets you quickly configure how the Tasks and Groups are used. The same simple system shows Tasks for Special Events (e.g. Holiday, Darkmoon Faire, etc) only when you choose.

Tasks can be automatically reset Daily or Weekly, At Each Login, Every 1-365 Days, or never. Or, be used only once. They may hide then appear on a Date you choose. They may also be Account Wide (e.g., Blingtron). You can manage Tasks in complicated groups but display them more simply. You can even enter Tasks from the command line handy for reminders, shopping lists, or quickly filling in a new Group.

While the surface has barely scratched and marvelous combinations barely hinted, it is important to note that Executive Assistant's flexibility lets you use it as best fits your unique needs as a Player and how they express individually on each Character.

Getting Started
  1. Set Local Daily Reset Time and Local Weekly Reset Day
  2. Review the Click Map. Initial Actions/Key Combinations are:
    • Configuration: Left-Mouse
    • Task & Char Config: Right-Mouse
    • Help and Information: Shift + Right-Mouse
    • Click Map Configuration Dialog: Shift + Ctrl + Right-Mouse
  3. Add a Group, some Tasks, and Go Play

Is It Really That Easy?

To get started, YES; to adapt Executive Assistant to your needs, probably not.

In fact, you'll almost certainly notice a few things you'll want to change right away... but what those are will be unique to each user. Executive Assistant doesn't pretend there is an 'average user' and to the degree it makes initial selections, it is to show what's available.

Under Getting Started in the Help and Information, you will also find a section on First Considerations which addresses the most common first questions among beta testers.

New Users will find some Tasks created for them to walk them through the setup basics.


Aspirin Avoidance System
Users: WE WANT CUSTOMIZATION!
Developer: OK, here's some customization.
Users: ACK! ACK! TOO MANY CUSTOMIZATIONS!
Developer: But... But... (wimper)


One of the downsides of the question "wouldn't it be awesome if...?" is that while it may be an awesome feature, people can usually only take so many features (awesome or not) at a time. Enter the Aspirin Avoidance System a.k.a. Help and Information, so you can work through the features at your own pace.

The Help and Information will explain tabs, controls, and usages; it will also give tips on usage, useful tricks, and give you a quick-reference for the pesky icons, of which there are way more than I intended.




Per-Character Group and Task Management
Groups and Tasks need only be entered once then enabled or disabled for the characters that would use them Groups and Tasks have user-selectable Defaults to speed the process along.

You can manage all your alts from any character. Select the 'Point of View' Character to adjust their unique perspective.



For the selected POV Character:
  • Yellow Checked boxes are Enabled
  • Blue Empty boxes are Disabled
  • Red X-ed boxes are Unavailable because a parent Group has been Disabled



Task Window and DataBroker Tooltip
Executive Assistant allows you to use either platform to complete Tasks, though they otherwise have different design functions. Each can be disabled on a per-character basis to adapt to UIs and character need.

The Task Window looks always at the currently logged in character and is intended for characters where an always-up list is preferable (with normal/mouse-over transparency, hide during combat, etc).

The DataBroker Tooltip has two Modes: Tasks by Character and Characters by Task and may toggle scope between Current Character and All Characters when in Tasks by Character Mode.

< Task Window :: Tooltip >

Tasks by Character Mode is the familiar list of Tasks a Character needs to do while Characters by Task lets you look at a Task and see which Characters have completed it (e.g., open 'An Important Task 003' and see that Alt001, Alt003, and Alt012 still need to do it)

< Characters by Task


Special Types
Special Types, like all Task and Group properties, can be set or removed at will and Executive Assistant will treat them accordingly. On-The-Fly settings can be set and changed via the DataBroker Tooltip or Task Window.

[Task] Account Wide: When completed by one character, the task shows as completed on all characters. While designed for the Blingtron family, it has strong utilitarian uses.

[Task] Purgable When Completed: This special Reset Type allows for One-Time-Use and can be Purged (if Completed) at the user's command. These are ideal reminders, shopping lists, notes, etc, and become very powerful when teamed with Account Wide and quite convenient with Command Line Task entry.

[Group] Zoom Group: Zoom In to a single Group when focusing on a set of Tasks. When in the Display Zoom Group Mode, this On-The-Fly setting lets you quickly and easily Zoom In/Out of any Group with a single mouse-click.

< Groups :: Zoomed In >

[Group] Invisible: Lets Child Groups and Tasks appear as if they were part of the Invisible Group's parent Group, allowing for good Task organization without needless visual clutter.

< Visible :: Invisible >

This is a simple demonstration; the Help and Information section explains an example of a Shopping List combining Character Specific lists, general list, and Any Character list in an easy-to-use way, that lets each Character see a seamless list.

[Group] Command Line Target: Lets Command Line entered Tasks know where to go. The Target Group is set On-The-Fly with a mouse click or, if you prefer, via Command Line.



Combinations

Mix Special Types with Per-Character selection and nested groups and...well, you've got more combinations than I want to contemplate. You can create an elaborate to-do list of events and pass-through groups and actions tailored to each character or keep track of those pesky weekly quests or just setup Blingtron's daily account wide quest for two characters, or a simple per-character to-do list.


File Cabinet
Disabled by Default, the File Cabinet Companion Addon lets you easily Backup and Restore of Group/Task Configurations. Backup your Executive Assistant configuration and experiment in safety.



File Cabinet only needs to be enabled when it's being used so you can safely leave it disabled until it's needed.

Caveats
What follows is some technical jiggery-pokery for folks who sit up nights contemplating addon jiggery-pokery.
  1. LibQTip: The included libQTip version has been modified and will work with and not replace the release version of libQTip.

    This was necessary to work around a long-standing libQTip issue but not actually fix it. LibQTip has a refresh-related bottleneck problem (confirmed by Torhol) and the repair would likely exacerbate it. The contained version is coded to offload excess space in a specified way rather than trying to spread it and ignoring cell maxSize.
  2. Lua String Class: ExecAssist extends the Lua String class and may not play well with other addons that also extend the String class in the extremely unlikely event that similar function names are used.

v1.0.7
Update: Reduced LibQTip AutoHide Delay (If this produces issues, open ea_Tooltip.lua, search for tooltip:SetAutoHideDelay, alter the delay)
Update: GameTooltip color reassertion now forced on LDB obj MouseOut
COLOR="Red"]Bug Fix[/color]: Non-styled Tooltip showed Red instead of Default

v1.0.6
Update: Improved Options opening when spawned from Interface Options Panel
Update: Updated PlaySound() calls for 7.3
NEW FEATURE: Independant Text Shadow controls for Tooltip and Task Window
NEW FEATURE: Alpha Enabled for Border and Background Colors

v1.0.5
NEW FEATURE: Background and Edge Controls for ldb Display.

v1.0.4
Update .toc to 7.2
Update Ace framework files to r1158
NEW FEATURE: !! Warning: This Feature if Experimental !! Option to Hide Task Window when 'Show Completed Tasks' is Disabled and All Tasks are Complete. WARNING: this will effectively DISABLE the ClickMap 'Toggle Task Window' feature as the Task Window Toggle State is constantly reset by *this* feature. Use at your own risk."

v1.0.3
File Cabinet to 1.0
NEW FEATURE: File Cabinet now able to Import/Export portions of a Group/Task list as well as full backup/restores.
Executive Assistant updated to provide native support (FC is not an Intern)

v1.0.2
Help Corrected: "/exa or /exa" now reads "/ea or /exa"
Bug Fix: Reset Time now Resets Time
Bug Fix: Reset Weekly now Resets Weekly and at the proper time
Bug Fix: Tooltip: Characters with no tasks are no longer displayed. Do Not Display Empty Groups is responsible for this. We've had a long chat about it, it now realizes that it is indeed part of its responsibilities, and it would like me to pass on its deepest apologies and promises not to stop doing it in the future no matter how badly the author writes the handling code.

Caveat to this: the currently logged in character will /always/ be shown, regardless of empty status

v1.0.1
Bug Fix: Account Wide Tasks & Tooltip: Tooltip was not real-time updating Account Wide Tasks were clicked completed/uncompleted.

v1.0
TOC Update for Legion
Bug Fix: :ldbClickMap() handler will no longer attempt to call the service function of a functionless service entry

v.0.9.9o
Behavior Change:GameTooltip now hides when opening the clickmap configuration
Bug: Reset Reschedule setting improper offset leading to improper resets and occasional client-load issues as AceTimer needed an aspirin
Assorted other Teeny-tiny-Tweaks

v.0.9.9n
Fixed Bug: Repaired bug when copying data from Global Task Window to Char Specific Task Window
Fixed Bug: Repaired several Char Specific Task Window control and response bugs
Fixed Bug: Repaired Purgable tag (comparitor was using 0.9.9L type-detection model)

Normalization: Timer Handling Logic has been normalized and optimized. This should be transparent to the user but at most it should cause a single hiccup in automatic reset dates.

v.0.9.9m
NEW FEATURE: Width Constraint for Task Window: 3 modes: No Constraints, Maximum Width, and Fixed Width.

NEW FEATURE: Toggle Hide Task Window Control Buttons (Task Window Options) & ClickMap entry to toggle. Note that it only applies when the window position is locked; control buttons will always show when movable. When no Groups or Tasks are displayed, the window border will still be visible depending on the border style you elect to use.

NEW FEATURE: Color codes (well, any escape code really) can now be used with Group and Task Names. Codes are exposed to the user by swapping the escape "|" char and "//" (e.g. //cffff9966TEXT//r => |cffff9966TEXT|r). If the "|" char is used directly, it will not be considered an escape char and will print as typed. DO NOTE that the 'end color' tag will interrupt the config-only group name override-color but will display properly in the task window and tooltip.

Correction: Collapse Map Garbage (when groups deleted) now being properly cleaned up.

Fixed Bug: Reorganization: Group now cannot be put inside group in its own lineage

Fixed Bug: resolved problems with Task Window Options reacting badly when the Task Window was unloaded.

Feature Update: Internal Task Type Handling method refactored to allow modules to extend the number of Task Types.

Fixed Bug: (x2): Display Counts on Headers: Tooltip and Task Window. Code to 'update in place' instead of refresh the entire respective control would throw an error or not immediately visually update respectively. Both bugs have been fixed.

- Blizzard Addons Panel now closes when using the Blizzard Addons Panel Buttons to open ExecAssist Configuration / ClickMap

- ExecAssist Configuration dialog now closes when opening the ClickMap Configuration (from inside the Configuration Dialog)

Fixed Bug: Click Map "Key In Use" message was not always showing the in-use operation

Fixed Bug: "Hide Empty Groups" now properly obeyed again -- REALLY this time (Not Displayed = Not Counted)

v.0.9.9l
NEW FEATURE: LibExecAssist -- library for managing Groups/Tasks/Completion for 3rd party Addons is available. Stand Alone example provided separately

PURPOSE: to allow full-featured Addons the ability to inject and control Tasks based on 3rd-party addon criteria to let users create a single notification-of-action location IN ADDITION TO the x-number of addons' individual different alert methods.

NEW FEATURE: Module plugins can now be added (referred to as "Interns" under ExecAssist naming conventions). Small framework adjustments were made to allow modules to inject Help, Click Map entries, Configuration, and custom controls.

PURPOSE: to provide new functions w/o bloating Executive Assistant and give the user some de-cluttering control. Some planned modules also add 'stub' features (e.g., the Quest Intern will pick up Daily and Weekly quests, let you make ExecAssist Tasks from them, and automatically mark them 'complete' when you turn that quest in. (ExecAssist natively resets the Tasks)

(embeddable library for 3rd party addons)
Fixed Bug: :AddGroup() properly accepts a nil for the 2nd arg
UPDATE: added 3rd para to Add Group (..., noProgeny<boolean>) to suppress creating the 1st child task

- Convinced the configuration dialog to update the status panel when tabs were switched. It's a cheat and a kludge and beautiful.

Fixed Bug: "Hide Empty Groups" now properly obeyed again

- Added sub-table selectability from Dialog short-calls

Fixed Bug: New Groups and Tasks autoselection repaired

- Fixed two places where AddonName was used when L.appName should have been

Fixed Bug: Header on Task Management page was being in advertently eaten by the pruner -- how the hell did I overlook that this long??

v.0.9.9k
New Control: 'Remember Toggle State', Task Window Configuration. ENABLED by Default. Controls how the Task Window responds at login/UI reload.

- Minor optimizations and under-the-covers corrections

v.0.9.9i
Fixed Bug: Moving Border. Users seeing issues with the Moving Border should find it behaving properly; it was a symptom of both usage patterns and an underlying resource handling problem that has been corrected.

Feature Change: Purgable Task Behavior as been altered to make more contextual sense. Previously they were incorrectly being treated as defacto Account Wide Tasks even when not flagged that way, which could be confusing.

When multiple characters use a Purgable Task, the Task will only be deleted when all using characters have completed it; when only a few have, the Task will be 'disabled' for those characters.

This should provide more overall intuitive behavior at the character level.

Caveat: This handling means a Purgable Task that is disabled for all characters will be deleted when Purgables are Purged.

v.0.9.9h
NEW FEATURE: Calendar Automatic Task, allows for automatic resetting every n-Days. n=(1->365)

NEW FEATURE: Date-Based Reminder Task. Not displayed until the appointed day then appears as a Purgable Task

NEW FEATURE: Show or Suppress Login Alerts (These alerts tell you what types of tasks were reset)

Help for Special Types and Task Types reworked and expanded

Minor visual bug related to Reorganization has been squashed

v.0.9.9g
NEW FEATURE: New Task Type: 'At Login' This Task will reset at -each- login (requested by onedeadhero to remind to check garrison missions and other each-login reminders)

Tweaks to dragFrame handling to see if it resolves s-conley's reported behavior (since I can't reproduce it natively)

Dialog Window Status Bar Text now Status Bar Texting

v.0.9.9f
NEW FEATURE: A 'drag-handle' Border has been added to the Task Window when it is available for moving. This feature may be Disabled under the Task Window 'Window Positioning' options.
(related)
Chat-Frame alerts are also displayed when locked/unlocked via any method.
New Initial Task instructs user to lock the task window to get around that.

NEW FEATURE: Resizable Configuration Window. The configuration has been moved into an AceConfigDialog from the Blizzard Options panel; there are some inherent differences due to single- vs double-frame display capabilities but the pages themselves display the same and can be resized. (Additional details in the version update text file for the overly curious) Easy-Access buttons for config, help, and click map added to the Blizzard Options panel for Executive Assistant.

UPDATES: Collapse Map garbage collection strategy altered; now prunes char at login. Alpha-list made explicit rather than implicit.

TWEAK: Updated Help and Information & tooltip for Daily/Weekly Rests to denote it is local-time-zone to avoid any confusion that it might refer to the server.

Fixed Bug: decimal color to hex color sometimes return single-digit hex instead of double-digit (e.g., 9d -> 9h instead of 09h) causing the |cff[hex] to show instead of being converted to markup.

Fixed Bug: task window refresh was not re-fetching fonts so would not dynamically adjust to style-manager updates; font wasn't re-applied to zoom-group area

DESIGN CHANGE: Task Window Counts to use Header Font rather than Standard Font

Fixed Bug(es): Several fixes to zoom-group special type display (inherits color properly, hides when IN zoom group (redundant), etc.

Fixed Bug: Task Window Hide-In-Combat events were being set at login if the option was checked even use task window was disabled. Gave the code a good talking to about the responsible use of logic.

BUG: Accumulation error with sibling mapping repaired.

v.0.9.9c
TWEAK: Help and Information Display re New Users was tweaked for layout
Fixed Bug: "Hide Empty Groups" now properly obeyed in DataBroker Tooltip, Characters by Tasks display mode

v.0.9.9a
Now with 100% more Shared Widget Library

v.0.9.9
NEW FEATURE: Reorganization of Groups and Tasks. The method selected was a "reorg mode" which hides the normal controls and gives the user as close to drag-drop as I can get (pick up / put down)

Fixed Bug: Group Name Color now working again (nb: this was a regression).

LOCALIZATION: Cleaned up some errant strings related to new user controls

EXCESSIVE ORGANIZATION UNEXCESSIVIZED: category pages should carry controls properly (applies to Help and Information categories as well as Group Names under Task Maintenance.)

Interestingly....

If I had backed it up, I didn't recall, and I was cringing at the thought of having to recreate everything. But then I logged in to a couple of servers I hadn't logged in to in, forever - definitely before I'd installed this addon. And I noticed, in the course of just happening to mouse over the minimap button, that I wasn't getting errors. So, I hit backup on *that*, and then logged in to my usual server.... and I'm not getting errors anymore.

o.O The magic of new?

I'm not asking...

It's trying to send class-based color values but I'm not sure which field it's having an issue with: it's either the constant RAID_CLASS_COLORS (which I have a hard time thinking is mising) or charStem, which is the sub-table for the ExecAssist character data, while looking for the charClass (e.g., charStem.charClass). I'd have to guess it's the latter.

First: Make a safe-copy of the saved variables file for ExecAssist.

If you've used FileCabinet to keep a safe-copy, as you should, you can do a restore from that and it should play nice again.

Otherwise, it's probably one char that's garbled but it's going to be hard to determine which if every char is throwing that up. You can verify that that is the problem by deleting the saved var file and letting it create a new one then logging in all your normal chars.

If it were me, I'd do that then compare each charClass entry between the two files and see if I see any anomalies.

New error

I didn't login from about Tuesday before Thanksgiving till yesterday. (long weekend away) Since yesterday I've been getting this error when I put my cursor over the minimap button in order to bring up the list to click tasks off. There is at least 1 new addon since the last time I had an error, but it *was* working before I took my weeklong break.

Looks/sounds simple but: you lost me at:
pointing people at the command line
I don't know what this means ^^
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Also:
Direct them to create a group with a precise name,
  • an in-game group?
  • an extra folder in the WoW thingy-Ma-bobb? Program List maybe?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Finally
Code:
/ea task ... ... ... Kill the boss
Once upon a time, in a land far far away, where my brain went on holiday a decade ago, I could probably figure this out.

Here and now, ... ... am flummoxed.

Sorry. I know you're trying to help me and I feel vague tingly twitches at the back of my brain telling me that I should know how to do this, but ... nope.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you for trying to help me

For me, it is. You can get to 39 w/ the "bandaid" and I need 43. You wouldn't think it's a big deal but that rotten thing twixt my ears sure thinks it is.

Still - sigh. It's all well and good that they have a Grand Design about how the game should look but when it makes people unable to play comfortably, they should just give it up. (And they can talk all they like about how raiders then feel obligated to have the camera pulled out to the max, but if they stopped designing bosses that are so large a player character barely reaches their toes, that would be less of an issue.)

Sharing v.s. Syncing

I've just discovered this Addon [and Legible Mail ] today and I'm SO excited to get it in-game, but am doing all the reading first.

An immediate thought:

That's a tall order. ...

If you had master/slave accounts, it'd be easier ...
Share, not sync.

For example, I have the time and affinity for making lists. Two people I run with would love "Install this Addon, Import this List" but would never use it if they had to do all the organizing and typing themselves.

Things I've listed for them in the past:
  • World Event Achievement steps,
  • Transmog Set Pieces,
  • Mats for crafting.

I'd like for the tasks to show automatically when a given alt is at or above the level you can comfortably solo the boss at, but otherwise be hidden, to avoid seeing a gazillion extra tasks when I level a new alt.

Glad you're enjoying it.

So, essentially an "Auto-Enabled/Disabled For Char" based on Level (show if char >= X), though I can also see an (hide if char > X) as there are some useful dailies as one is leveling.

I could almost see adding it directly if it were just level but I can also see it for professions, reputation too -- in for a penny, in for a pound, as it were.

I'm working on an Intern (Minder Minder) which lets you 'Mind' Items, Reputation, and Currencies (e.g. get X currency, Check, now buy Y item, Check) and this might fit into that framework. It'd require an injected control at a level I don't use now (Group) but I don't think that'd be a problem.

No promises but I'm intrigued, and that's usually a good sign.

That's a tall order. I'd sketched out a 'transportable group/task configuration' architecture so that someone could export, say, all the holiday events for someone else to import (File Cabinet is the proof-of-concept of it but there really hasn't been a call for it) but sync is a problem: the only reliable way is to use id numbers and that means shifting the 'sync' file between directories each time you do thing, which is messy and painful -- many times over if you've already got a running configuration on both accounts.

If you had master/slave accounts, it'd be easier (only create tasks on account A then copy the sync file to B and import) but it'd still be touchy, even if one only considered 'added tasks' and avoided 'deletes' -- I don't even want to contemplate how badly that'd confuse Intern modules.

PM me how you'd envision it working and we can talk; I might be overthinking it.

Am I the only one who reads changelogs?

"AceTimer needed an aspirin"

I probably laughed more than warranted, but I've coded things like that. ("All I did was add a blank comment line. Now it works.") Even tho it was back in college.

Still loving the addon. Have some desires for the visible task manager, mostly involving it staying on screen but being smaller sometimes, but not actually asking for things until I come up with some sensible way to say what I want. "Do what I mean when I want it!" doesn't count.

Glad it helped. Given everything I know about how WoW handles addons, rebooting shouldn't fix it if it was the addon itself at issue. It's still a hell of a thing to read a user having though.
