    Thank you so much @steve-bate ! I'll take a look and see if I can update the script this weekend!

    Hello all! I am delighted to have found this project. I am an accountant and we have recently implemented tools such as alteryx and blueprism to assist with audit procedures.Learning these tools have guided me to being interested in implementing such types oftools to automate tasks for small businesses. I look forward to reading through the docs and learning more about Orchestra, as I feel there is unlimited potential in helping small businesses save time by automating mundane tasks

    We use bonitabpm for this purpose. What if we collaborate on "organization" templates for different use cases such as accounting etc. and improve them together?
    Having a repo I'd
    Repo of pre build community workflows would be awesome for this tool

    @arivogli Sure! What can we help with?

    @marcua
    @awb715 @ManuelPistner_twitter I love the idea of identifying specific use cases (e.g., accounting for the two of you, our example Newsroom workflow, or even how B12 uses Orchestra for websites or SEO) and sharing best practices. That might be with a few more example workflows, or more ambitiously through @ManuelPistner_twitter 's great idea of pre-built community workflows. Anyone want to start one?

    Very impressed by this project. We're a small team of webdesigners, programmers and text writers, and a 'robot manager' makes a lot of sense! I don't live in Python Land, so setting up this Django project takes me a bit more than 5 minutes. Does anyone know if there is a Dockerfile to get started?
    Adam Marcus
    @marcua
    @henkm That's super-exciting! Sadly there's no Dockerfile right now---we have one internally but it's pretty B12 infrastructure-specific. If you wanted to put one together, I'd be happy to do anything from hop on a call to guide you, or to review any PR you submit with one!

    @henkm
    thanks for the response @marcua :) I'm sure I'll be able to figure it out how to get started. I guess I have to familiarize myself with Python/Django anyway to make Orchstra work for our own workflows. We really believe in this type of system and it makes perfect sense for our situation to get stuff done more efficiently. I'll see how far I get on my own. Don't want to bother you with silly newby questions about about Python or Django. Good to know there is a community behind this, that actually answers questions. We would definitely pay for Orchestra if it was some sort of SaaS.
    Manuel Pistner
    @ManuelPistner_twitter
    We already started with implementing such workflows just with other tools.
    To get a workflow moved I have to write a custom one similar to the example workflow right? As we already run business critical workflows is there a roadmap for orchestra? I'm highly motivated to contribute with my team and need to understand the roadmap for a decision. Is there one?

    Hey all! Really excited to experiment with orchestra
    I’m curious, from the b12 team or anyone else who has already gone heads deep, how have you integrated this into “traditional” task management software like Asana or Trello Boards
    And how that plays into work flows? Either way, will probably spin something up this weekend :) :+1:
    Manuel Pistner
    @ManuelPistner_twitter
    @dillchen great question I'm also very excited about trello or asana integration and how to use orchestra with the tools together
    nbanta
    @nbanta

    @dillchen Orchestra has a notion of dynamic checklists built in, so we use that at B12, and it would be a proxy for some of the features you would look for in Asana/Trello. Our team even teamed up with Aditya Bharadwaj and Kurt Luther of Virginia Tech to write a paper on how we use dynamic checklists in our web design projects. Check it out: http://crowd.cs.vt.edu/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/Bharadwaj_Critter_CHI_2019.pdf).

    That being said, we do integrate several third-party tools with Orchestra. One in particular that we have found to be very helpful is Slack. When Orchestra creates a team, it will create a private channel for this team to communicate. It is a great way to build relationships across various experts on a team and can be a space where experts quickly collaborate.

    I'm curious if you were able to play around with Orchestra earlier this month.

    @hattek
    Hi all! Hope someone can help me getting Orchestra installed and configured. After I run "python manage.py migrate" I get the following error - see https://pastebin.com/z5v11wCL .... my urls.py looks like this: https://pastebin.com/jvYMfVmY ... I'm quite sure I missed or did something wrong. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
    hattek
    @hattek
    Anyone? Is the development still active??
    Infinite
    @infiniteNetwork_gitlab
    Is Orchestra working? can i speak with someone of support team?
    i sent an emal to speak in the name of the company i am working for and there is not answer yet
    Manuel Pistner
    @ManuelPistner_twitter
    Same experience here. I assume this project is either internal or not a prio anymore
    Adam Marcus
    @marcua

    Hi all! A number of folks have reached out asking about whether Orchestra was actively maintained, and I assure you it is. We use and develop Orchestra on a daily basis at B12, and it's core to what we do as a company. As a startup, we've been pretty heavily focused on the success of our business, and as a result, we've been less than supportive of the community as you've run into issues. In the long term, we'll have folks who can more deeply engage with the community, but in the short term, I'd love to put something together that will work for you.

    To try out an experiment, I'd like to run office hours for 30 minutes a week, usually on Wednesday afternoons. If you've got a question that requires a bit of debugging, send a message to this channel and I'll let you know the next time me or one of our engineers are doing office hours. My only ask is, if we manage to get you unblocked during office hours, I'd be grateful if you contributed documentation or a PR to help pay it forward.

    If that works for you, then @hattek, @infiniteNetwork_gitlab, or @ManuelPistner_twitter, let me know if you're around at 2:30 PM ET today or so for office hours!

    @marcua

    And to help you out @hattek , I see the problem! in your urls.py, you should have the following imports

    from django.conf.urls import include
    from django.conf.urls import url
    from django.contrib import admin
    from django.contrib.auth import views as auth_views

    I'm updating the docs appropriately.

    @marcua
    Hi all! I recently ran through the getting started guide and updated it based on feedback from @hattek and a few others! Thanks to @thisisdhaas for the review! Feedback welcome: https://orchestra.readthedocs.io/en/latest/getting_started.html

    @HemilModi03
    Can you please provide more information on how to set these variable in orchestra_settings.py settings.GOOGLE_SERVICE_EMAIL, settings.GOOGLE_P12_PATH, and settings.GOOGLE_PROJECT_ROOT_ID
    Adam Marcus
    @marcua

    Thanks for stopping by, @HemilModi03! To answer your question, I expanded on our documentation. I've submitted a PR to update it, but you can take a look at the pre-reviewed documentation update here: https://github.com/b12io/orchestra/pull/498/files

    Let me know if that helps, or if there is anything we can clarify further.

    Hi @marcua , thanks for the response and I was able to solve the issue using your documentation. I have one more issue, when I press new delivery task in the above screenshot nothing happens.
    Adam Marcus
    @marcua
    Thanks for testing out the documentation update @HemilModi03 ! For the button issue, can you let me know if the issue relates to one of b12io/orchestra#446 or b12io/orchestra#447 You can check the console or your the Django console logs for Orchestra to see what type of error you're getting.
    HemilModi03
    @HemilModi03
    Hi @marcua , this is the error that I get in my console, error: 500
    message: "get() returned more than one Worker -- it returned 6!"
    HemilModi03
    @HemilModi03
    does anyone else get this error ? error: 500
    message: "get() returned more than one Worker -- it returned 6!"
    Adam Marcus
    @marcua
    Thanks for reporting @HemilModi03 ! Getting a code review on b12io/orchestra#499, which should resolve your issue!
    HemilModi03
    @HemilModi03
    Thanks @marcua, for solving the issue. There's one more thing that I found out is that after the photographer 2 accepts the photos uploaded by photographer 1, I do see a processed photos folder created but I dont see any images in that folder. Can you please help me with this ?
    Adam Marcus
    @marcua

    @HemilModi03 Thanks to @thisisdhaas and @paopow , we just released v1.0.5

    This should address the exceptions you ran into during setup. Can you confirm that it worked?

    @HemilModi03 is the photographer issue related to b12io/orchestra#444 If so, can you add a comment on that issue?
    HemilModi03
    @HemilModi03
    @marcua Yes, the issue is solved but not because of the newer version but I manually changed email id of each workers. so that there's no conflict
    @marcua No the photographer issue is not related to #444
    HemilModi03
    @HemilModi03
    I guess the update does the same thing which I did manually @marcua

    Hey everyone, nice to be here! I'm having a small problem where psycopg2 version 2.7.4 isn't working via pip install. Getting pg_config executable not found error, did anyone have the same issue?

    I ended up just installing to the latest version.

    Hey, I learned about Orchestra after I found Daniela Retelny's work on flash teams - was really excited to learn it existed, even moreso to learn I could deploy it myself. I'm setting it up now.
    geistling
    @geistling
    I was wondering if anybody in here could describe how they're currently using it, if they've needed to make modifications for their own purposes, etc. - figured I'd ask ahead of time to get a sense of what to expect.

    @marcidy
    Hi, do you all have a list of system deps required to install orchestra? I'm following the docs on readthedocs and have hit a 4th failure due to missing system libs. I'd love a list of requirements so I can just install them up front. (e.g. for debian it's libpq-dev, python3-dev, libxml2-dev, libxslt-dev so far ). Thanks!
    im just running pip install -r requirements at this stage
    Ming Fang
    @mingfang
    @marcidy This is what I use apt-get install -y libpq-dev zlib1g-dev libjpeg-dev libxslt-dev libxml2-dev. But lxml==3.8.0 fails during the pip install. I ended up installing the latest lxml.
