Finding Tasks

KosmicTask is designed to share tasks. But in order to use a shared task a user first has to be able to find it. KosmicTask's Spotlight driven search capabilities make it easy for users to seek out tasks that match their requirements.

Users may search for tasks across all available instances of KosmicTask using the toolbar search field. Searches may be restricted to the local instance, to a particular shared instance or to all shared instances. Matching tasks are displayed in the Search tab of the Task browser.


Task matches are returned according to whether the task contains all the terms entered into the search field. To further refine searches users may opt to search just the task script as opposed to the entire task. This is useful for identifying tasks that utilise specific language features, so for example we could search for all scripts that use the 'import' keyword.
