Tasklist webpart

Our customers were complaining about the way sharepoint shows workflowtasks. You have to switch views to see personel tasks and tasks assigned to groups the user is a member of, and there are no properties to recognize tasks in the list. (unless you set these from within your workflow, ofcourse..).

We came up with this:

The webparts shows your personal tasks, and the tasks for groups you are a member of. You can easilly set the columns of the properties the webpart has to lookup from the document.

You can give it a try yourself, download it from here: http://easytasklist.codeplex.com/

Get SPFile or SPListItem from URL

By request: this is the code I'm using to retrieve a SPFile object from an URL. You can get the SPListitem with SPFile.Item.
     protected SPFile GetSPFile(string url)
{
using(SPSite site = new SPSite(url))
{
using(SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb())
{
SPFile file = web.GetFile(url);
return file;
}
}
}
