3.14 Projects

Sometimes it is difficult to organize the communication and activities between different members of an organization, be it city, guild, order, etc. People are often not in the realms at the same time or have a hard time knowing what their fellow members are doing. The project system attempts to alleviate some of this difficulty. It aims to provide a way in which the members of an organization can communicate what is going on and who is in charge of it (so people may contact them for more information).

Projects are created by leaders of an organization (or someone with creation permissions) and each project is assigned a 'leader'. This leader is then able to update information regarding the project (such as its name or completion status) as well as add notes so that members know what the project is about. Two people always have access to modify and/or delete a project: The organization leader (can affect ANY project), and the project's leader (can only affect his own project). 

*** The following commands are used to view projects 

  PROJECTS [BY <person>] [IN <group pattern>]

      Display a list of projects that are visible to you. Eg. "PROJECTS BY ISHAP" or "PROJECTS IN KRONDOR" or "PROJECTS IN k*". PROJECTS by itself displays every project. (The BY and IN clauses are optional).

   PROJECT <id>

      Display detailed information on a specific project; including the name, status, and description.

   *** These are used by organization leaders and project leaders to create/modify/delete a project

   PROJECT NEW IN <group> NAMED <name>

      Create a new project in <group> (must be specified, because you can belong to more than one) with the given name. This can only be done by the organization leader. Once it is created, the project leader may be set.

   PROJECT <id> SET <property> <value>

      This is used to change information about the project. Available properties are: 'name', 'status', 'info', and 'leader'. Leader is only settable by the organization leader. Name is what is displayed in the project listing.
      Status is a short description of the current status of the project (such as "Planning", "80% Complete", "Finished", etc). Info is a long description of what the project is about. Basically any information that others need to know.          Examples:
         PROJECT 1 SET status planning
         PROJECT 1 SET leader

   PROJECT <id> EDIT

      This will allow you to edit the 'info' property via the Midkemia composer. Use this when you need some special formatting or are setting it to something quite lengthy. 

   PROJECT DELETE <id>

      This will remove the project from all records. Only usable by an organization or individual project's leader.

   PROJECT GROUPS

      Display a list of the groups you are in and what level of access you have. It is either 'Normal' or 'FULL'. FULL indicates you can create projects in that group.
