Creating a task in Wihi

You can make the different phases of your thesis easier by breaking down the phase you were working on into different tasks. In these instructions, you will learn what tasks are involved in each phase of the thesis. Go to the ‘Tasks’ function and click the Create task button to create a task (Figure 1).

Clicking the button opens up the Create task form. Enter a name and description for the task and its start and end dates (Figure 2). Finally, click the ‘Send’ button to send the task. Your tutor can see the tasks you have created and comment on them using the ‘Comments’ function.

You can create several tasks for the same thesis phase. If a task is actually part of the next phase, Wihi will be able to move it there after the principal thesis tutor has approved the current phase.

You can mark the progress status of a task (Figure 3). When you start a task, set the status to ‘task in progress’. When the task is complete, change the status to ‘task completed’.
