User dialog of tasks


On May 13th, 2024, Storyblok started gradually rolling out a new design for its Visual Editor. Therefore, the Visual Editor product screenshots depicted in this resource may not match what you encounter in the Storyblok App. For more information and a detailed reference, please consult this FAQ on the new Visual Editor design.

With the Storyblok tasks app, you can add a dialog that pops up when a user executes or wants to execute a task. With the Task manager, you can also create a task for editors in a space that will trigger a webhook for different tasks like deploying and publishing content.

To use the Tasks app, follow the steps below

  • Navigate to your App directory {1} on your Storyblok space and install the Task app, this will add the task app icon to your space.
  • Click on the Tasks icon {2} and click on the New task {3} button to create a new task.
  • Fill in the details of your task as shown in the example below and Save {4}.
