Editing or deleting a task list

Any field for an existing task list can be updated and a specific task list can be removed by users with Developer and Delivery role. The name of a task list cannot be changed, and the task list must be deleted if the configuration has to change.

You must delete an existing task list if you want to update the following configurations:
  • Columns
  • Constraints
  • Status
  • Action
  • Team assignment
  • Action/Teams assignment

The Task List ID is a combination of its name and status.

  • If you delete a task list and try to publish another task list with the same name, you will not be forced to change all your existing implementations of Human-Bot Collaboration MetaBot commands.
  • If you update the status of a task list, the corresponding ID is also updated. Therefore, you must change the ID on the Human-Bot Collaboration MetaBot implementation so that it complies with the updated task list ID.

    Consider a scenario where you have created a task list named Quality Approval with status as Pending. The ID of the task list is quality_approval.pending. You change the task list status to Waiting, which also changes the task list ID to quality_approval.waiting. Therefore, you must now change this ID on your Human-Bot Collaboration MetaBot implementation for it to comply with the updated task list ID.
