Some ideas for improvements to the document tasks feature:
(1) There should be a way to re-run a document tasks, with the option to include none/all/failed/unprocessed/failed+unprocessed docs. When choosing to re-run the user should again be taken through the document task creation wizard so that modifications can be made.
The implementation of this can be completely in the frontend, current backend APIs suffice.
(2) The current 'simple tasks' are cool but rather limited. An easier way to make this extensible would be to have a library of predefined, safe scripts, easily extensible by just dropping new scripts in some directory. The scripts should be able to take parameters though, this could be done by having some simple meta-description (possibly in a commented-out section at the top of the script) describing the parameters. The server could store a flag to indicate if a script was taken from the library or custom, which also solves the issue from improvement (1)
