It can be as simple as files in a directory.
It can be as difficult as records in a database.

If you use files :
One directory per user, one file per task in the directory. 
loop over user directories, 
and always process only 1 file per user dir in the loop.

in sql that would be

select userid,min(task) from tasks where tasks.done=0 group by userid

for a table, for example
create table tasks(
   userid varchchar(100),
   task int,
   done int,
   taskdata mydatatype
