The plug-in's home page indicates that users are expected to create new action items by edit the a topic's text. That's a show-stopper for a lot of users.
Several TWiki community members have developed various forms instead; of course, I prefer my own
:-). I think it would help if the plug-in shipped with a form, or at least if the plug-in's home page mentioned options.

, which shows you how to do this with comment plugin templates. There's a plugin ordering issue with this though (I think) which I've just described in Bugs.Item5615

As Grant says, I shipped a simple template with CommentPlugin
. Because - as you point out - everyone has their own personal preference as to how this is done, I'm not inclined to add a "one form for all". Don't let that stop you starting a "forms for action tracker" page though, and collecting your favourites!
If I come back to this I am most likely to enhance the action tracker with an AJAX entry method and/or an entry form in TinyMCEPlugin
. So I'll keep this enhancement open for that work (or to encourage someone else to do it)

Sean, I could not get the calender in your example to work with 4.2 and updated plugins(as of this week). What do you have this working on? I had to use the "Using the Calendar in user forms" example on the JSCalendarContrib page.
Grant, thanks for the plugin order workaround in Bugs.Item5615. I have already spent hours trying to figure out that one.

Greg, someone else had to use the in-line contrib
too. I don't why. I'm using TWiki 4.2, on a Windows server.

I'm kidnapping this report to act as a single point of record for entry methods for the Action Tracker. There are three proposals on the table at the moment:
- HTML form, a la CommentPlugin
- Extension to TinyMCEPlugin
- Simplified action syntax
and have your say!
