Is it possible to withdraw funds from a task every month?


Question from Gitter:

If we want to use Colony to pay salaries, is it possible to create a task that represents six months of work and then let the worker withdraw part of funds every month?


It is not possible for the worker to withdraw funds from the task before the task is complete nor is it possible for the worker to claim only some of the funds assigned to the worker in the task payout.

The best way to use tasks for managing salaries would be to decide on a pay cycle, for example, one month, and then create a task every month for the worker to be evaluated and paid out. The specification of the task would be the responsibilities of the employee, each month the manager (or an evaluator) would approve the payment of the worker by giving the worker an adequate rating, and the worker would then be paid out and earn reputation points within the organization.
