An activity is a task that needs to be accomplished within a defined period of time or by a deadline to work towards work-related goals. Activities can be linked together using connections to create dependencies.


An activity holds several different attributes. Each attribute has three state-values, It can have relations to other activities, It can have a name, role(s) assigned to it, a description, and be part of groups and a level.


The three Boolean states that every activity has are:

  • Included
  • Pending
  • Executed

All the relationary conditions are based on these values.
