I'm attempting to create a simple To Do app. I'm part way there but am having a few problems. The basic flow is pretty simple.


I have a list of Users:

When I click on a user I get a new layout with a master-detail view. On the left is a list of all of that user's tasks. On the right is the details of the currently selected task. Something like this:

The problems I'm running into are as follows:


1. When I click on Alex, I see Mary's tasks.



2. Tasks titles are repeating

3. When selecting a row in the portal, I want the record to change

For example, if I click on the second task in the list, the record should change to 2 so I can see that task's details on the right.


4. I want to navigate to the task view when selecting the row, not when clicking on a button
