Editing the Creator of a task


Can we edit the Creator of a task? Sometimes when we are having a conversation with a colleague, the person that creates the task is not necessarily the actual creator, and we would like to be able to edit that field.

Can this be implemented in a plugin?



Yes, and yes.

Simple solution, edit the field in the db. creator_id column.

Plug in wouldn’t be that difficult either.


Plugin actually is pretty simple. 1 hook and 1 helper.

Adds a drop down to the task edit form and I set it so only an admin or project manager can change the creator, otherwise the option won’t even appear.

Thanks so much for this. I will take a look and report back, but it sounds perfect.
