      The TeamSite To Do list displays the status of each task along with the task name, date, owner, and a task description.   In V/5, the status of a task can easily be obtained by checking the Production Center Task View or Project Manager Task View. Statuses include: Assigned, scheduled, working, and completed. An icon with a red exclamation mark indicates that the task is past due.   In engenda, the status of a task is easily obtained by selecting the task and clicking on the "details" tab. engenda ships with sample workflow processes; and it can be configured to support any number or combination of processes.   The site window can display some information about each page. A page can be marked as done or not done and comments can be added to describe the status of the page. Publish or Don't Publish flags can also be added. The workgroup palette and the admin interface both display who currently has components checked out.   Spectra's workflow model provides a means for recording the status of various tasks assigned to users. At any given point, managers can view the status of any given number of workflow tasks.
